I really have no idea what this :) It's a suggestion from Donal so if you dislike the choice...blame him :twisted:

Just kidding from what I've researched after he suggested it, it seems like it could be a pretty cool thread.

Hey man, refer back to last week's thread, I revealed this right from the get go. Even before your suggestion. I just post them in the order I get them. Donal PM'ed about this weeks ago. I love the suggestion of the Rocketeer, and we can totally do that next week. It was not a dis by any means, just following standard procedure.

EDIT - My bad Dave, you did make your suggestions prior to me posting what's coming up, but like I said this Cobalt 60 suggestion was from weeks ago.

Dave, look at the first line of this thread :)

I knew this wasn't going to be a popular choice, because it seems fairly under the radar. I think even Donal would agree to that. I never turn down a suggestion though, especially to someone that's contributed gorgeous artwork in these threads over and over again.

I was looking at Donal's blog last night and saw his Cobalt 60 piece(btw its AWEsome) and got interested in the character. So I googled Cobalt 60 besides getting pages on radioactive material I found Bode's son's website where he sells Cobalt 60 tees and comics. Looking forward to what everyone does with this guy.

A post-apocolyptic merc with a machine gun, a sword, and a mutant dino-thing to ride on isn't fun to draw?

Hush yo mouth! A dude slaying an army of mutants isn't as exciting as drawing a guy in a jet pack flying? Next you'll say Conan isn't excting to draw!

Conan would fucking rock!!

But, honestly my opinion on the character changed when I did a google search for the character so I can find an image to draw from. The posts earlier were more of a knee-jerk reaction, more of a "Who?!?!?"

But it might be a successful thread, it can't be as bad as the Kick-Ass thread.
