Hey look, it’s that series that I make one thing a year for! Next in the Lordi Girls series is Evilyn, based on the song of the same name. I still love the concept of what I’m doing, but not so much the way I’m making them anymore. So this probably isn’t the last ever Lordi Girl that I’ll make but the next one’s probably going to look a little different. Maybe. We’ll see.
Part three in the slowly progressing series of girls based on Lordi songs. This one’s based on ‘Good to be Bad’. Which I did originally draw something for many, many years ago, but that monstrosity is buried in the depths of the internet, hopefully never to be seen again. Trust me. This one is much better.
Post about the first two here
There’s this band I like called Lordi – you might have heard of them, they won Eurovision several years ago and they’re all dressed as monsters. I love them a lot, and have wanted to make some work inspired by them for a long time. So, I’ve started a series called ‘Lordi Girls’, and so far I’ve made two images, each one inspired by the descriptions of various women and girls in different Lordi songs.
The first image is called ‘Girl Next Door’ and is based off of various lines from the song ‘Deadite Girls Gone Wild’, specifically:
“She lures you in with intention
Looks like the girl next door
But it’s blood and sticky floors
That really turn her on”
The second image is titled after the song that it takes inspiration from, ‘Girls Go Chopping’. This one was a more literal interpretation of the concept of the song than Girl Next Door, but I still like it. I’ve got plans to make more of these, as there are plenty of ‘Lordi Girls’ to choose from to make into illustrations. I also made a process gif of how I created ‘Girls Go Chopping’, which you can see at the bottom of the post if you’re interested.
