Thark Thursday: Artist - Operation GutterBall

Okay, I have no idea what this dude's real name is, but in just a few strokes of a sharpie marker he's rendered some really inspired illustrations of our favorite green martians. I particularly love how the eye defines the shape of the head--gives a good alien-from-another-world feel. And while that's not the first time I've seen a Helium-style helmet on a Thark, the overall effect with the roundish head is magnificent.

Great work on the physique too--quite believable compared to others I've seen that come off a little forced. Getting those extra arms in there can be tough!

Finally, we have an action shot:

Great stuff, head over and check out Operation Gutterball's other work!
