Explodicus Jones by TVsKyle Explodicus Jones by TVsKyle
I created the character Spider to make a funny little music video to the tune of They Might Be Giants' "Spider". Turns out drawing a guy with a Spider for a head makes everyone say "Earthworm Jim" no matter how dissimilar you make their costumes. I've been wanting to design a guy with a cartoon bomb for a head, but every time I sketch it, it ends up looking like Spider... So I thought I'd solve two problems at once.

For those playing along at home:

Actually, Spider was one of my favs from yours, a bit sad to see him scrapped.

Not scrapped-- just changed up a bit. Really, I just replaced legs with a fuse.

A big guy with a bomb for a head, interesting mix. I can sense this character will have anger issues, in fact the expression that he's making here just makes me imagine him saying "So I gotta big body. Stop comparing me that dumb earthworm guy".

Man, I really like the color scheme you have here; the one in the most recent picture of Spider was nice too but the light blue and maroon looks even better, in my opinion. This new guy seems like an interesting character... does he have a name yet, or is he going to retain the name Spider?

Thanks! I thought his color scheme was too similar to what I was doing with Captain Carl and Helperboy, so I thought a nice red would play up his explosiveness. His name is the name of this deviation: Explodicus Jones.
