Song improv based on the film 'Green Room'
100APC#12 Skeksie D/C
I had been playing D&D most of that day with some of my oldest friends. People I have been playing D&D with since I was 13, people I shared my first theater experiences with, people I performed in the Austin comedy clubs with.
That evening we took a break from the gaming table and went to down town Austin to The Hideout Theatre and watched this awesome show called "Savage Swords" it was an improv show based on the stories and style of Robert E Howard. It was awesome.
We were laughing during intermission as AC/DC was playing over the speakers in the lobby. I started joking that Bryan Johnson, the singer from AC/DC, sounds like a skeksie from that movie "The Dark Crystal." Thus the idea of Skeksie DC was born. I laughed about for many days afterwards. So when I was finally sitting down to paint, this was the result.
I keep seeing some buzz about a sequel of the Dark Crystal is coming out. I can only hope the skeksies break out into a savage version of Thunderstruck.
Thanks for reading.
