Under My Skin 4 - And The Madness Continues... by LJ-Phillips Under My Skin 4 - And The Madness Continues... by LJ-Phillips

You can also check out the main storyline here in Skins fav.me/d5mol00


Aha, we end this week's "Under My Skin" on a cliff-hanger! Kinda.

Who is this mysterious lady? Why does she resemble Rabbit? And most importantly, who is the banana man in the background? Tune in next week, same Bat-time, same Bat-channel to find out!

Notes: Regarding the first panel, it's a tribute to the creepy LLoyd from The Shining, (one of my all-time fav horror movies) . For some reason, the idea of the demonic bar tender wearing a Pikachu mask creeped the daylights out of me.

Heh, so glad someone caught the Jessica Rabbit reference. Yep, Gray certainly fills that Jessica Rabbit dress, right?

Vanessa: I'd go as a Lamia-Witch, which basically intails me just putting a line of green-and Yellow scales down the length of my spine. No fuss, no muss.

Caliban: :eyes: Mind if I follow the trail?

Vanessa: Your so Bad! ...:D No, go ahead.

Jessica Rabbit being my favorite cartoon character I appreciate the reference:heart:
That pickachu head is so ridiculous it looks as if it's giving Vinnie a headache ~

Ah, another Jessica Rabbit fan :) I also think she's a great character and I adore the movie.
Yep, poor Vinnie - his solution for said headache? Dr Jack Daniels!

Indeed! I was originally going to paint him in a penguin suit but penguins kinda make me nervous (don't ask)
Thanks! I wanted to try my hand at a classy femme fatale :)

And thank you for taking the time to comment - much appreciated :dance;

Thanks so much - you've made my day :hug: I normally do the layout and sketches by hand and then I paint with Photoshop.

I've never tried gimp before. Sounds like a good program :)
Oh, absolutely. Traditional sketches are a big part of art!

Hee hee, so glad you like banana man :) He shall return in the next strip!
Thank you so much. I've been to a fair amount of costume parties (not lately,sadly) and I've found that they tend to get progressively more surreal as the evening wears on :D Banana men are the least of it!

I'm sure he will :) Although Vinnie is one of those oblivious kind of guys - he only realizes a woman is flirting with him if she's obvious as hell and double entendres are completely wasted on him as we will see in the next strip :D
