Kicking off the roaring 20s with the gang from @lackadaisycats !
Really proud of how this turned out :D
(oookay I was going for a whimsical, Gatsby kinda feeling for this drawing, but now it just looks like Rocky’s inviting you to join a cult as they dance around a ring of hellfire while the world is crumbling down around them)
Final result of the piece ive been working on for the contest. Im proud of this, and I like the two characters very much. #lackadaisycats #lackadaisy #mordecaiheller #halloween #art #halloweenart #cats #demon #angel #gif
To celebrate lets over analyse a Viktor and Mordecai moment ;)
I have already posted about this one a lot (obviously how can anyone not) but this teeny tiny flashback moment speaks VOLUMES about the two’s relationship by this point.
There is the most obvious point which is they had just concluded a very bloody shootout and the building was on fire. Mordi’s pince-nez were in the middle of the destroyed stairs. So its not as if Viktor could have just noticed them by chance. He would have to have noticed when telling Mordecai to leave that his distinct accessory was missing and then gone up the stairs to retrieve them. This was when at least one of his knees still worked properly but still…
Plus of course there’s the checking in and making sure Mordi did the sensible thing and got himself out of danger with that nasty shotgun shell in the shoulder instead of trying to do something stubborn, like trying to keep fighting to prove he is capable and not a bungling rookie. Something Mordi makes clear (in his snarky way) he is concerned about.
We perhaps see a touch of this in the panel below. Mordecai is looking at Atlas, whose own face and expression unsurprisingly is more concealed. But it seems likely that while the job has overall gone extremely well, with an entire rival gang being taken out by the boys and all their resources now in their bosses hands, he is probably the type to mildly reprimand Mordi for letting the cash take a shotgun blast ( to say nothing of Mordi’s own blood and never mind it was using it as a shield that saved his life.) It is also telling that in that same moment Viktor starts digging for the spectacles in his pocket.
Viktor obviously can’t defend Mordecai or speak back to their gang boss, but he can offer a small gesture of comfort and consolation. Plus there is the simple fact Mordecai is not in any way surprised or taken back by Viktor doing this. He just casually accepts the gesture. You could say this is just because Mordecai is indifferent to a nice gesture, being a sociopath and all, but I think its because they are just that comfortable at this point as partners. Just as Mordecai will do his best to make sure the grumpy cyclops does not catch a bullet while distracted, Viktor will try to look out for him in exchange.
Lackadaisy is a beautifully made world with fascinatingly complex characters and plot lines. Consider getting involved with the Lackadaisy Animation Kickstarter. Just six days to go.
Some Rocky roughs from the animated film project. I really love how much character this captures in such a short span of time.
Follow along and support us at the Little Daisy Cafe!
Yep, another Lackadaisy fanart. I just love the comic so much and all the characters and the art. And I’m glad it’s getting a kickstarter film! (Try getting involved with the kickstarter, only four days left.)
Finished my Mordecai Heller tribute from a few weeks ago. It didn’t help that Kit kept breaking him while I was working on his clothes--and every time, some Veggietales lyrics kept running through my head: “Mordecai is busted/ there are those who can’t be trusted.” But I’m pretty pleased with the end result.
