Danger 5!

Late last year I did some art for a fantastic Aussie indie TV series called Danger 5. It's a weird 60's inspired WWII action spoof with Nazi dinosaurs, German/Japanese supersoldiers and other off the wall characters, incorporating the best of old spy movies and the worst of Italian cinema. I was approached to do some art for the DVD and posters and had a ball doing it.

Below is the art of the Danger 5 team, there's also some closeup detail shots and lastly some of the sketches and previous layout ideas. I hope you enjoy these as much as I enjoyed producing them. And do yourself a favour, hop on Youtube and check out Danger 5. You won't regret it!

These images look like they were torn off the covers of 1960s paperback spy novels. Perfect!

Thanks Michael.

Matt- The DVD is available at JB HiFi, but if you're referring to prints of the art, I know there were posters printed but I'm not sure if they're for sale to the general public yet. Best bet would be to contact the Danger 5 guys through Facebook.

was this trad-media or digital (ala gouache and a touch of coloured pencil on bond or illustration board?)

Mega Fantastic work.

Someone left an anonymous question which Blogger blocked but I'd thought I'd paste it here and answer it-

Q- "Was this trad-media or digital (ala gouache and a touch of coloured pencil on bond or illustration board?)

Mega Fantastic work."

A- This was 100% digital all painted in Photoshop using some default Photoshop texture brushes.

This is amazing stuff, Chris. An early fan of 'Danger 5' since the webisodes, and you've captured a 60s pulp style which suits the series perfectly. Are you up for private commissions?
