Retro-Sci-Fi sketches by BrendanKeeley Retro-Sci-Fi sketches by BrendanKeeley
Some retro-sci-fi sketches. You'll notice I went for a suitably retro sci-fi-comic pose, since the genra was back before dynamic poses and camera angles were really introduced.

Man you definitely nailed the clothes and pose. I love the rocket too. Now get a hottie at his feet and an alien emerging from behind a crater and you've got it!

Thanks. ^_^

Perhaps it's just a cultural devide, but I don't remember any swooning, clinging space babes in any of the old English sci-fi comics. Sure, American comics were full of them, but stuff like Dan Dare never seemed to overly indulge in that sort of thing. Foreigners were annother matter, those old comics were often full of crude racial steriotypes, ( which is not really a good thing ) but women seemed to do a little better in English comics, or at least those I am familiar with.

To be fair, there wern't always that many of them that actually involved any important female characters at all. A lot of English comics of the time seemed to focus more on the "bunch of guys, commerades in arms" kind of war spirit, rather than the hero saves his girl type of thing, or the whole mixed gender superhero team.

You're deffinatly right though, I should have put in an alien. It's just not proper without a little green man or two with bulging forheads and hairdryer rayguns.

And you should be able to see their brains a bit! That's SUPERIOR alien evolution to have your brain hanging out!
