Dasha and the Alien Monster by erosarts Dasha and the Alien Monster by erosarts
All part of an arrangement with :iconandysdames:
This is Andy's character Dasha, of the Space Patrol, who normally spends her time getting kidnapped and molested by her adopted, space pirate sister, Rue, but it can't always be like that, can it? Sometimes the Space Patrol is actually doing useful stuff in the service of humanity, and here we see her fighting an alien monster outside the domed city of a distant colony, somewhere in space.

I really don't do much that winds up looking this finished.

Ink, pastels, pencils, white gauche.

Would fit right in on any of the pulp fiction covers from the 50's!  :slow:

There's always some creepy alien who wants our women!  :no:

Can't figure out why?  :D

Thank you! Someone appreciates my appreciation and my PhD*.

If you find (or shoot, maybe establish one yourself) some kind of on-line, or correspondence course, which allows one to pursue this degree in comic appreciation, you be sure to let me know about it!

I think you're asking if this is that character from Metroid -- ?

But no. This is my take on an on-line friend of mine's character. Dasha is part of the "Space Patrol" and I thought I'd pit her against some alien monster, whereas his own work usually concentrates on her being captured and tormented by space pirates which are led by her adopted sister, Rue.

But, but... *glances in Andy's general direction* ...she's clothed?

Seriously though, this reminds of those pulp sci-fi novels of the '50s and '60s right at the height of the UFO craze.

Yeah. I don't know about the clothes, it's always a little bit disappointing when a sexy girl is hiding behind so much fabric. But if you're naked in space, I'm pretty sure your blood boils, so I had to do something. Of course, that would not have been an issue for the 50's and 60's pulps.

I don't know, man. That classic design has the appeal of a personal RV going for it. You stick a satellite dish on that baby and wire that visor with a display of some kind and, heck, wherever you are is home!

Well, would you approve if he were watching something useful, like, programming from NASA about how to launch a multi-billion dollar satellite? Maybe he could watch the live satellite feed of himself performing the job! Just like Terrell Owens looks up at the scoreboard to see himself score on a long touchdown!

They've had those studies that suggest that students, when given a choice between listening to a lecturer live or watching them on a TV screen will choose the TV version, after all.

I dunno....have you ever watched the NASA channel on either cable or satellite? Granted, it might be interesting to watch oneself deploying some multi-billion dollar portion of the ISS, but the moment they switch the feed over to the their normal "video file" programing....he or she'd be clammering for the space-remote. Then again, they (an astronaut on a spacewalk) always have a small step-by-step binder strapped to them....you'd think they would have figured out some sort of HUD for them by now to get rid of the clutter.

You would still need a back-up plan, in space, I think.

Just the same way the "paperless" office was never realized because it turns out computers and users are even less reliable than a file cabinet.
