It is Friday, and another fantabulous Fan Art Friday is here, and we have two new submissions to sate your thirst for…..well, gremlins fan art!
We have a Sports gremlin, drawn psychotically by Harley S, a returning Fan-artsy-person, and the first of a couple submissions by Luis P done in Paint!
Now I know the title probably got you all excited for a Gremlins 3D film, but as some of you may remember, one of our readers, known as Matt, made a CGI Gremlin model a while back. Well, now he has the finished fully rendered Gremlin for display on his website, as well as an awesome picture inspired by the first gremlins film!
http://matt-painter.co.uk/ Hop on over and see what he has cooked up! Keep in mind these were done from scratch using 3D modeling tools on his computer, and are in no way related to any past ,present, or future official Gremlins Product! I have received some concerned emails regarding his previous effort, saying it was from “the making of Gremlins” or something, and I can assure you it is his own product. This says quite a bit for his skill, when people confuse it with the genuine product from a film. You hear that, Warner Bros? Hire him to get this supposed CGI Gremlins film done right!
Anyways, I do have to apologize for the lack of updates, but the reasoning is twofold. Firstly, there has not been much action on the Gremlins front in quite some time, even the merchandising has slowed to a crawl. This means there is not much to post on a regular basis, and what does come through is often uncorroborated rumor.
Secondly, and more importantly, my wife and I are having a little gremlin of our own soon, so we have been getting prepared for this momentous (and rapidly approaching) occasion, and many hobbies have been shifted to the back seat.
Those things said, Do Not Fear! Gremlins Online is not going anywhere, and if plans go through as….uhm…planned, 2008 should be a great year for Gremlins Online and Gremlins in general!
Christmas is coming soon, and that means it is time to break out the DVD/VHS/Betamax/Laserdisc of our favorite Holiday movie,
SANTA CLAUS CONQUERS THE MARTIANS! Er….I mean GREMLINS! (Though Santa Conquers The Martians is a fantastic holiday cheese wheel of film!!)
So watch gremlins a few times and get inspired! Send in some Holiday-Themed Gremlins Fan Art and we can have an awesome Fan Art Friday on Tuesday, December 25! (Which really makes it a Fan Art Tuesday)
I have been keeping my eyes open for new Gremlins T-Shirt designs that usually launch around this time of year, but there has not been much happening there.
We shall see where the winter winds take us!
