Between all the Joe Mad! comics I've been reading and all the Mighty Mouse cartoons I've been watching, I had a strong urge to draw something more cartoony and dynamic than usual. And I'd been meaning to draw this angry little man for a while anyway.
For those out of the know, this is Murky, one of the main badguys from the old Rainbow Brite cartoon. What's interesting is, when I was studying the reference picture I realize that this guy has elements of both Mario and Sonic to him, and he came before either of those two were fully developed.
He once killed a man in Reno just to watch him die. Swear to God. OK that probably isn't true. What is true is that the actor who did Murky's voice is the same guy who did, and currently does, the voice for Optimus Prime. I poop you not, check out IMDB.
