Larfleeze: Greed and Loathing by ECTmonster Larfleeze: Greed and Loathing by ECTmonster
"We were somewhere around Barstow, on the edge of the desert, when the avarice began to take hold."

There is a green lantern comic where Larfleeze wrecks havoc across Las Vegas, and I instantly imagined this when I read that. Sure with lantern powers Larfleeze can fly at supersonic speeds, but I'm sure that Glomulus, as his energy construct, advised that he rent a very fast car with no top. I had a lot of fun coloring the orange lantern acapulco shirts, and yes, those ARE batman symbols in the sky :B

This is a page from my sketchbook cropped and colored. It still makes me giggle to think of making an entire comic based on this.

Glomulus, Larfleeze, and Batman are Copyright DC comics

My first reaction to this picture was a uncontrollable fit of laughter while uttering " We can't stop here it's bat country!"

It's always a surreal pleasure to watch (or read) Fear And Loathing In Las Vegas. For me it is as outlandish as it is alluring. I think this is a beautiful tribute to both Hunter S. Thomson and Ralph Steadman. The warm colour scheme in this picture is gorgeous. Using Batman's logo as hallucinogenic bats is brilliantly creative. I love how you where able to mimic Steadman's peculiar style of detailed malformed characters. All while ensuring that both Larfleeze and Glomulus where recognizable to fans of the Green Lantern series.

Larfleeze rents something? I'm sure that would go over great.

He'd probably through a room party with all of his constructs, in a nearby hotel, and tell everybody nearby that they aren't invited.

The watermark (like all watermarks) is there to discourage wanton downloading, though if you really want it as your wallpaper, have at it, I guess. :wink:

Mostly, yes, but for artists on here who don't enable downloading of their pieces (which I usually don't) it helps keep people from drag-and-dropping their work off the web all willy-nilly. Like I said, though, if you really like the piece and want it as a wallpaper, go for it.

You are making me want to actually check out this series something terrible. I don't even know these characters, but I still laughed.

The Blackest Night series single-handedly created my two favorite characters in DC comics, Larfleeze the orange lantern, and Atrocitus the red lantern (haven't drawn him yet, but I will soon) I can definitely see you having fun drawing the Red Lanterns too :D

I remember loving the idea of red lanterns when I was looking this stuff up a year or so ago! The only one I remember is Dex-Starr, um.

I guess technically Gotham is bat country, but I had to put this joke in there.
