And here we have a Tarantugun. (It’s “tarantula” + “gun,” get it???) These guys are some of my oldest “characters,” designed in third grade to be bad guys for Ultra Car to shoot at in spaceship mode. In other words, they’re older than basically everyone except Ultra Car herself, Danny, Joe, and Howard. They… didn’t look nearly as sophisticated as this, but they had this same general red, purple, and orange color scheme. Back then my coloring philosophy seemed to be “all of them.” I redesigned them to be sleeker for It’s Walky!, repurposing them as Martian sentries.
These days, Sal has one on her arm as a tattoo.
