Lorelei looks so young She does not look 25. Poo... Anyways, I did the Bloodstone family, so I thought I should do the Gilmann family. There's Mama Gilmann (Lorelei - age 25), Mama's little Batman (BB!Cliff - age 5), Mama's Superman (Strom - age 29), and Mama's little Spiderman (BB!Reid - age 1 yes, he's wearing a Spiderman onesie)).
After the first movie with the creature of the black lagoon (I'm going to say the crappy sequels all have a different creature), Strom went into hiding for a while. Lorelei ((German siren myth--look it up if your interested ^-^ )) stumbled upon his little underwater cave, where she met adorkably awkward Strom, and they fell in love. Lorelei was the headstrong silly ((Comic-Nerd-y)) force that kinda drew Strom from his hermitage. He's never been good with people, even though he's incredibly curious about everything ever, but Lorelei loved him in spite of his weirdness. They got married young, and had Cliff unexpectedly, but had few problems with the surprise birth. Five years later, they had Reid.
This is supposed to be the year before Lorelei (and her unborn child) dies with pregnancy complications, and before Mr. Gilmann gets all reclusive and hesitant to allow outsiders into their small home. ((He fears losing someone else who he loves greatly, and thus is now super protective of his two sons.)) Mr. Gilmann still wears his wedding ring, even though he is a widower, and does not have the capability to find someone else. Lorelei's necklace was given to Cliff; he never parts with it.
Obviously Strom looks nothing like the actual Creature in the movie... and this is because I felt like designing something else--originally, the design team for the Creature went in a serpentine eel-like way, which turned out more beautiful and ethereal than scary... so they scrapped it and went more kelp-y; I decided to go back to the serpentine roots . So, lets just say the people that encountered the "Creature" over-exaggerated his "scary and looking like soggy corn flakes"-ness. I did, however, use the plates from the original design because they're friggen' cool.
This should go without saying but please do NOT use this artwork or these characters unless you ask explicitly ask me. This is not meant to be a base so please do not trace or recolor it. I'll be disappoint. +5 awesome points if you get the reference
I write some. Mostly just on scraps of paper in class when I can't pay attention but I've posted a couple on here. They're floating around my gallery somewhere. The others are in spiral notebooks, which I'd have to find and post... such a hassle. Lol ^^
Their designs are just perfect and i also fell in love with those plates, i remember the first creature because i had a little monster shaped water gun and yes, you made justice and added +90 Handsome pts. Kiddies are super cute uwu...
Mamá Gilmann is the perfect nerdy mom and she looks gorgeous so let me take a place here in this little corner and cry for a bit
Yay! I was worried I mad Strom way too different from the original, but I'm glad that you can see the inspiration and that he does the original "justice" *-* Aw there there. *pats back awkwardly* Don't cry.
omg sooo cute! Lorelei is so gorgeous and little Cliff is too cute for words!!! Super sad though it was like whoo adorable story...and she dies haha but still so well thought out! none of your art ever disappoints!
haha no problem! I love that you take the time to really make a story for your characters especially since the story is always so good! the kids look great though even if they were difficult: Reid is so cute with his expression like dad why you no pay attention to me xD
D'aww, another darling family! Lorelei looks so beautiful (loving her net coverup especially), Strom is a handsome sea devil, and the two A-DORABLE guppies there are to die for. Seriously, cute like that shouldn't be legal. Oddly enough, I'm really liking that Batman doll Cliff's got too; there's something about the doll's pose that's making me giggle. And I had that Spiderman onsie as a kid! 8D
Final note: Strom's shirt logo's bugging me. It seems so familiar, like a beach brand I've seen, yet I can't place it!
I was gonna draw the Faye clan... but then I realized just that. It's a freakin' clan. There's like 20,000 of them >.> Though if I do, I suppose I'll do a bbq where naturally Marius would be invited and look way out of place and albino. Hmm... might make Claire invite Reid. And Strom is a handsome sea devil--but he's super awkward with his words to people he doesn't know in a sense that he does not use them. I had WAAAAY too much fun with that batman doll. Seriously & My kid's going to have an Ironman onesie--well when I actually get a kid, and a husband XD.
Lols yes. It is a beach brand: Quicksilver, makes beach wear like surf shirts and boardshorts. C:
Husband first, kid next. And an Iron Man onesie like the video Iron Baby? XD And my gosh, I remember those costumes/PJs so well. I had a Spiderman one and a Robin one. I'm grinning just thinking about it!
...come Halloween, this family so has to be decked out in Superhero gear. It is a must.
Of course Husband first! :3 I wouldn't want to have a kid alone. Or conversely, with a guy that didn't want to have a kid. >.> No, not like the video Iron Baby! XD That just seems uncomfortable, and I would never subject my child to something that metaly! Think of the child danger My mom did not approve of dressing me and my siblings up as superheroes on a regular occasion. So we had a lack of interesting onesies. Did have Awesome PJs though ^^
Aw~! Thank you so much And yeah her death's kinda why he has a huge crush on Marah; he imprinted on her--like a baby duckling--when he small and she was nice to him. At first he didn't like her like her... but then the weird crush thing grew and now Cliff's all she's gonna be my Wonder Woman. Like Lorelei was to Strom.
