I added a picture I did back in 2008 to my fan art archive – I sure got a little enthusiastic drawing fan art over the years. Earthworm Jim Battling a Dragon. This picture never got completed, but it was based on a pretty epic dream I had once.
One of them was a picture I didn’t want to show anyone, but going through my back-ups today, I’m not entirely sure why. It’s got two of my favorite things in it – a big explosion and a dragon. Sure, my art could be better…that’s partly why it was abandoned. I view that as a constant work in process.
I remember thinking about how Earthworm Jim’s abilities might work – how his “Manta shield” (which is a secret move in Earthworm Jim 2) might be used in combat.
I’m sure if a bunch of clever artists got their heads together, they could easily expand on how his suit works. Who knows! I think it’s kinda fun to think of how the world could be added to and expanded from the originals.
