Black Hole- Finally a doll that sucks!

I can't believe it has taken me so long to upload these pictures of my Black Hole doll. He's fully poseable with a metal wire skeleton, and soft outer limbs. His clothes, including his cape, mask and undies can all be removed and attached using the velcro stitching. Awesome, eh? Here's the beautiful girlfriend of mine who made him for me:

Watch my muscular hand grasp his neck gently like a goose!

Whoops, looks like the camera cord ruined that pic!

Cheesy grin galore

What this? A detachable mask! Bargain!

A little too close

Not close enough!

After a long day of posing Black Hole must rest his weary head on my pillow bed

This is a good a time as any to give a bit of back story to my Black Hole character. I created him with a friend at highschool by the name of Mat Lay. I had the original idea and Mat helped develop the character, his powers, a few future plot pieces as well as co-wrote the first episode. After that he left me to my own devices and ended up handing over all responsiblity to me by episode three. I had been drawing the entire thing from the start, but by episode three my style had progressed further into something I am happy with.

Black Hole is a cynical super hero with the brilliant ability to suck things into his vacuum like hands. He can choose to store these items, or simply repel them straight out the other hand. His origins and identity have yet to be examined, further than his failed magic career and best friend Clint. So far he's had four adventures. I am currently working on the mega long fifth episode,'Inward Thinking: A Neccessary Emo/The Adventures of ManMan.'

I'll also take advantage of this situation by announcing a slight name change in order to avoid confusion with Charles Burns Black Hole comic. You shall now know my comic as "The Black Hole."

Ivan! Finally understood that one is able to comment on your actual page, and not just the pixelforum (or whatever it is called :) ), so here we go;

You are a highly talented artist and I admire your skills. Maybe I don't have any drawing skills myself, but I know that you have. :)

See you, bro! :)
