Ghostbusters 2016 by kingpin1055
Ghostbusters 2016
A digital recreation of the logo I suspect will be the one used in the reboot movie, due out next year.

Most of the logo was assembled in Adobe Illustrator, with final assembly and minor effects added with Adobe Photoshop.
For Mr. Gross by kingpin1055
For Mr. Gross
Michael C. Gross passed away earlier today, and after Dan Aykroyd and Harold Ramis, he was one of the most recognisable names involved with the creative side of the Ghostbusters franchise.  He was Associate Producer on the first movie, Executive Producer on its 1989 sequel, and he was also Executive Producer on The Real Ghostbusters.

He was knowledgeable, generous, and if you were lucky enough to call him your friend, he would reveal so much information about the industry, which he would talk at length about.

But perhaps his most significant contribution to the legacy of Ghostbusters is the logo, which he created.

Farewell, Mr. Gross.
Ghostbusters Lego by kingpin1055
Ghostbusters Lego
A little work in progress project, inspired by the recently-revealed Ghostbusters Firehouse set from LEGO which is due out early next year (and the LEGO Dimensions game).  The above are intended to be printed (either as labels, or as actual LEGO tile bricks) so people can customise their Firehouse playset a little more, should they wish to have printed tile versions of the photos of Vigo the Carpathian, rather than the labels included as standard.

I've also been working on the design of the PKE Meter from the game, which I'd also love to see printed onto a brick, should LEGO not make one themselves.
Wall of Steel by kingpin1055
Wall of Steel
R.M.S. Titanic sits patiently in Southampton Harbour, the largest man-made structure in the world, waiting to depart on her maiden voyage to the New World.

A closer look at one of the brackground pieces I'd made for a recent submission to my gallery.  The lower half is less detailed than desired, but was dictated by objects which would've been layered in front of the ship in the foreground.  This particular section is of the port-side, forward portion of A-Deck, B-Deck, C-Deck and possibly E-Deck.
Vive la Paris by kingpin1055
Vive la Paris
Or alternately: "Liberty, Equality, Fraternity, Solidarity."

For the people of France, and of Paris.

Credit to Jean Julien, the artist who created the original Eiffel Tower Peace emblem.
Like the title says, I'm not dipping my toe into the world of tumblr, starting off with a HiJack (Hiccup from How to Train Your Dragon & Jack Frost from Rise of the Guardians pairing, for those following who aren't in the know).  I appreciate this won't be to everyone's taste, but I figured I'd start with something I had a good understanding of, and had a following on tumblr.

If the blog goes well, I may start one up for my Ghostbusters-related work.

My tumblr will feature a lot of stuff already present in my gallery, but will also feature my concept sketches and works-in-progress, which I've never felt quite so free to post here (DA often seems more like the place to post the "final result", rather than stuff that's being worked on).  There will also be some NSFW stuff... And a strong likelihood I'll be reblogging some very NSFW stuff, so viewer discretion is advised.

For those who wish to pop on by, I'm there under HiJacked Adventures.
