Here's the rough design I did for the Dethtroll. He's in episode 4 of the first season of Metalocalypse. James Hetfield of Metallica did the voice (which was pretty much just screaming into the mic.) As you can see, he's approximately "8 Nathan Explosions tall." In the actual episode he ranged from this height to probably about 20 Nathans tall. Whatever worked for the scene. The design was supposed to invoke 80's metal album cover art. I used to draw this kind of shit on all my high school notebooks. I was the guy who would paint demons on the stoners' jean jackets.
We're working on the special features for the Metalocalypse dvd right now and writing for the second season has begun (another 20 episodes.) Brendon's working hard finishing up the album and it looks like we're going to do a full length music video for one of the songs. We haven't figured out which one yet. I have to say they all sound bad ass. The extended Mermaider gets my vote for now. So look for a bunch more Dethklok stuff this year. Rock on!
