    Warren’s REMAKE/REMODEL meme is one of my favourite things. I plan to keep it running – a fresh thread every Monday. Artists need a place to show off, Whitechapel should always be It. A handful of entries will be showcased over on BleedingCool at the end of each challenge.

    Professor Zomax (courtesy
    (thanks to the splendid “Lady, That’s My Skull” Blog, for images and info.)

    THE RULES:

    This challenge is for ART ONLY. Any pen-portraits, or crappy scribbles padded-out with words, will cause a deployment of my newly-trained Urethral Attack Maggots. Also a banned account. No stock-photo manipulation. No half-arsed bollocks. Anything deemed to be piss-takery will be nuked from orbit. Original photography is fine. No more than ONE submission by any one person.

    INSTRUCTIONS:

    PROFESSOR ZOMAX – Nature’s Grudgebearing Catamite.

    This guy’s pure gold. He appeared in just a single episode of the Fantomah strip in Jungle Comics in 1941, but his origin story is too brilliant to pass-up:

    Professor Zomax Has A Shit Day, Part 1

    Professor Zomax Has A Shit Day, Part 2

    So what we have here is a guy who has been crippled, soul-destroyed, humiliated, and quite possibly repeatedly-sodomised by Nature. Capital N.

    He’s the anti-eco. He’s all the skeeviest, most self-destructive fantasies of the climate-change denialists made flesh. He’s got an all-consuming grudge against, hahaha, his own fucking planet, and he won’t stop building his ridiculous doomsday machines “until every animal is dead”.

    Full information HERE (again courtesy of "That's My Skull, Lady").

    Your job is to redesign, revamp, reinvent, remake and remodel this character into something that would work for the 21st Century.

    Here is Math:

    Frothingly insane heavy-lipped cripple
    + obsessive loathing for the Natural Order
    + 21st Century crazytech

    = Go.

    It's Cheney. He'd find a way.

    He'd probably do it in liquid hate.

    Professor Zomax

    Let's get the ball rolling with this ipad doodle. If I have time along the week I may replace it so pretend it's a placeholder! When I read his description, I imaged Professor Zomax as a man so hateful of everything living that even his underwear is made of endangered panda fetuses.

    Zomax The Worldkiller remake remodel by Oxbrow

    Divorced from his super roots, like The Atomic Man before him, he seems like a 50s apocalypse B-movie villain. So...

    Insanely enormous version for the morbidly curious

    @Hartter - The "periodic table of kill-ements" makes me very happy.
  7.  (10151.18)
    @sobreiro...nice start...like the menace of his eyes.
    @hartter...period table of kill-ements....I'd learn that in school.

    Wanted to get this out ot the way early. Professor Z, the nature hater guest starring some animal characters of mine who I still need to name....I wished I could've coloured it better but ran out of steam and no more time.....back to work

    @mojo - Love the girl in the penguin suit. Love all the professor's various disfigurements. Love the corset! Nice one.
  8.  (10151.20)
    @seb...thanks, really went and disfigured the poor guy. No wonder he's got a grudge. dunno about the corset..supposed to help support his ribs/spine...I made it up.
