The Misfits by CrystalCurtis The Misfits by CrystalCurtis
36478327420 That is the number of '80s songs I listened to while I worked on this over the past month and a half.

IT'S THE MISFITS. This was a Christmas gift for my sister-in-law, who awesomely requested that I draw the Misfits for her cellphone wallpaper. Just now got to upload it. lol I've been wanting to draw them for a while now anyhow, so this really just gave me the reason! I took a couple of liberties with the designs, but they were only slight. I'd like to do another one sometime in the future with Clash and Jetta. A close-up shot of the ones at the bottom is coming up in a sec!

ALSO YAY FOR ILLOGICAL GUITARS!

And here's a close-up of the ones at the bottom:

2 requests:
1. I want to see Jem as a member of the misfits in misfit clothing and make up.
2. I want a group shot that features Jem in the group and it should be called Jem and The Misfits.

Thank you so much!! :) It's alright, I haven't been too active on here because I'm trying to pare down my watch list. I get WAY too many journals and stuff in one day and can't ever manage to find the ones I actually care about. lol So yeah, been trying to trim some people out, and with 1500+ people I watch, it's taking me ages! How have you been doing?

Oh yesssss! I totally miss this show, but whenever I mention it to my friends they all give me this strange look and and ask what I'm talking about.

Amazing work on the colours and patterns! Totally 80s! The expressions are just perfect!

...Our songs are better!

I hated those bitches. Always messing with Jem's awesomeness. XDDD
Their songs were better, though.

You have such a delicious colouring style, I totally want to lick the screen XD
Awesome poses.

Thank youuuuu! xD Pizazz did get on my nerves some, but I kinda loved Roxy! xD She seemed like she cared less about being the best band, or beating Jem. She just hated everything, regardless. rofl x) Thank you, glad you liked it!

Omg, this is so cool!

I love how you did the clothes and the effects/reflections in them. Especially the blue-haired girl on the left is awesome *_* It looks so plastic!

The composition is also quite nice ~
And the colors are so fancy! XD
Great pic, I bet your sister-in-law was very happy :D

As wonderful as this is, it's a shame not enough credit is given to the close details and time you put into this. If it were not for the closeup pic i would not have been able to enjoy the leagues of detail you painstakingly crafted in. Kudos!! :dance:

This is 80s tastic and colour wacko - loving it. They are groving those patterns big time. You also get points for a non-distrating background and an interesting composition.

CrystalCurtis Featured By Owner Jan 13, 2010  Professional Digital Artist
Thank you! 8) I was really worried about the background being terribly distracting, but I just chalked it up to being the 80s, and if it's a little distracting then so be it. lol I'm glad it's not, though!
