GO, the manga cover X'D by akabeko GO, the manga cover X'D by akabeko
Aaaand its Good Omens again.

This book really has me inspired, and it seems like I have to pound out all the fanart that I haven't done in the five years since I first read it now ='D

So I had this urge to do one of those really bad-taste manga cover or movie poster like compositions, with all the garish colours and way too many people in the picture.

I'm quite happy with how the composition turned out, but really should either learn to shade properly with copic markers or go back to using coloured pencils. ^^;

Also, yay for Mr. Young, and Pepper's sister (whose name is not Sister Prudence, I have to keep reminding myself XD), whom I both like a lot :heart:

I love this picture!  I just started reading this book.  I've read as far as the "Wham Lines" in the "Saturday" chapter, where Adam starts showing his darker side.

I love your expressions and imagination of how they all look like.  I could almost picture these designs being a part of an animated series of GO...

Oh, if only that would happen.  It would be amazing!

Aww, thank you very much!! To tell you the truth, this is also the "finally done!" version after many false starts and failed attempts over the years of being a GO fan :XD:

So, don't give up on yours! I'd love to see it! C:

I love the composition. :) The colors and expressions (especially our lead duo's) are awesome, and the little details are amazing. You must've put a lot of work into this!

Oh, and Aziraphale's outfit reminds me a bit of the Eleventh Doctor's. More proof, if it is needed, that bow ties are cool.

Nope, I don't think there's any proof needed anymore taht bowties are indeed cool =)

(but in this case, I didn't give Aziraphale the 11th Doctor's outfit on purpose, it was more like a... subconscious blending of fandoms XDD)

Thank you very much for the wonderful feedback, I'm very happy you liked the picture :heart:

Crowley strikes me as the type to be a super-troll, that trolls everywhere and pisses the entire internet off with his trollness. Because we all know that trolls cannot be human.

You're welcome, you really deserve every nice comment you get :D

akabeko Featured By Owner Mar 10, 2011
OH DEFINITELY!! After all, it was Crowley who invented "googling oneself", so it couldn't be anybody else but him who invented internet trolling XDDD
I'm really curious which modernisations they're going to make in the filmed version of GO (after all, the book is more than 20 years old, so they'll have to update it a bit.) and whether they'll include internet jokes like that. Or if, for example, Hastur will end up trapped on a USB stick instead of a cassette tape (becaues really, I bet many of the younger viewers won't even know whata cassette tape is ^^;)

Awww, thank you~ :cuddle: :heart:

:iconfunkyduckyaisha:
funkyduckyaisha Featured By Owner Mar 10, 2011
I barely remember what a cassette tape is. XD I had some when I was a little kid and my parents were trying to get their Ph. Ds so we couldn't afford that much stuff when I was really little.

Ah, Crowley, such a troll. And I bet he goes on 4chan and trolls the trolls, and sends people links to those things no one wants to see, like blue waffles, lemon party, or goatse (Don't look them up >>) It's be so cool if they talked about his trolling in the movie, even though that's only my own because I really love it when people make references to internet phenomena in real life. At the time Good Omens was written, the internet barely existed compared to what it is now, which is a terrifying thought, and there were few CDs or MP3 players and no ipods. It may only be 20 years ago, but a lot has changed since then so they might have to make some updates.

But one of the most mind-boggling things for me when I read that book was the realization that at the time it was written, POKEMON DID NOT EXIST.
Absolutely terrifying.

well, I don't know the story, but I like the picture! it's been a while since you have drawn your last "put as many people on one page as there is space" picture, isn't it? but it's really nicel! ^^
I especially like the man in black and the woman in red, since their poses and facial expressions are really cool!
I just think that the scanner cleaned out your shadows on the picture, what is quite a pitty >.< but still it doesn't harm the atmoshpere!
but by watching it, I got curious about the story! *^^*

Ohhh, it's a great story! Yvyne will confirm that - when you're back in Austria I shall lend you the book, or maybe by that time the 4-part film adaptation will be out and we can watch it together - I'm sure you'll like it, the story is so crazy and cool XD

Thank you for the great feedback!! :hug:

And those ducks are the most cute thing ever.
Btw, the demon is called Crowley, isn't he? In supernatural there's demon called just like that and all I can think about is "OMG, slash coming" - which is extra funny taking he was crossroads demon who signs his pacts with kiss xD

Hee, everbody seems to like those ducks XDDD

Oh yes, I know about the Supernatural-Crowley (I still haven't found the time to watch it, but feel like I know perfectly who is who and how and why thanks to the SPN fandom here on dA :XD:) and the writer of the series freely admits that GO was one of the main inspirational sources for SPN.
However, as far as I know the SPN Crowley is quite a lot meaner than the GO Crowley, and their backstories are totally different. Also, Castiel is quite a different kind of adorkable angel than Aziraphale, and nobody pairs those two XDD

Sheesh, so much on the "to watch" list, so little time!!
