The Green Goblin by Sheridan-J The Green Goblin by Sheridan-J
This was intended to be a quick speedpaint, but I ended up taking waaaay too long due to a mysterious illness I have acquired since returning home from my trip which caused me to make a vomit on the hour for the last 3 days :sick:

The Green Goblin, inspired by his look from "Spider-Man: Turn Off The Dark", played by Robert Cuccioli.

Yes, I saw Spider-Man the Musical in NYC :|

And yes..... it was AWESOME :rofl:

Seriously, it's not bad. I went in with Low-to-"Meh" expectations, and was pleasantly surprised at how well they pulled it off (after its refurbishing). Visually stunning and clever (like a pop-out comic book) and the songs weren't half bad either. I'm not a U2 fan, but the rock style of music suited the show. No jazz hands here. One of my favorite ensemble dance numbers involved a squadron of military, government soldiers that broke out into a contemporary mix of marching and hip-hop dance.

Oh, and Spider-Man. Doesn't. Sing.
He only sings as Peter Parker. The suited up Spider-Man is only there for the flying/fighting/action/stunt sequences.......which is cool by me haha.

Anyway, I liked the design of the Green Goblins costume in the show; designed by Eiko Ishioka (who also designed the costumes for Cirque du Soleil's "Varekai"). And he was probably the most awesome thing about the show. He had a very Scar-like persona going on (from "The Lion King" musical; also directed by Julie Taymore) which made him very likeable and amusing :lol:

Would I recommend the show if you're a general Spider-Man/U2/Bono/The Edge fan? Yes.
Would I recommend the show if you're a fan of shows in general? Absolutely!

I saw this breathtaking musical when Patrick Page was the Goblin, and I think he was fantastic. He also played Scar from the broadway production of The Lion King, so that drawly voice~ <3

Simply fantastic piece of art!

Saw it last week with my family. They hated it but I can't stop raving about it: it's as close as I'm ever going to get to seeing a Toku stage show.

What was your favorite song from the show?
Sheridan-J Featured By Owner Jan 26, 2013  Professional Digital Artist
Sorry for the late reply!

Spiderman Turn Off The Dark was AWESOME :rofl: I'm a huge theatre buff, seen lots of the classics, but this one....was something else. Really! Haha. It did what it was supposed to do; entertain the hell out of me :lol:

My favorite song is a close tie between "DIY World", and "Pull The Trigger"! :)

I like how there's glow within the hand and face. Not to mention, the wrinkles in the face are spectacular! The spark of the Pumpkin gives it a nice flare!

Thanks :)

HA! I can't believe how accurate you got this. With a good old fashioned pumpkin bomb. Awesome.
I'm glad you liked it, but it is nothing compared to what it was before the "refurbishing" Ask anyone who saw it in previews, it was one hundred times better. And you know I mean that becuase I spelled out "one hundred". :nod: I'm still so angry over what the did to it. I cried. I would've walked out the second time and demanded my money back, but Patrick Page was still playing Gobby and I love him. I didn't know Cuccioli took over the role. Patrick will always be Gobby for me, but Cuccioli seems like he'd be pretty awesome with it.

Thank you for this picture. X) I've been hoping for some TOtD stuff since I saw it the first time. I love Gobby.:love:

I saw it as well and in spite of all of the problems plaguing it getting it ready for the public to see and the awful reviews (Usually a sign I will like it a lot :) ) it was very impressive and I liked it a lot better than the 3 films with Toby McGuire. I think Andrew Garfield did a much better job in the new film. I just hope that with the sequel if they use Norman Osborne and the Green Goblin, they don't have him wearing a space helmet like the last one and I hope that if this comes to pass you will do a spectacular painting of him to share with us so we can "Marvel" at your talent.

Yeah, you gotta admit, Turn Off The Dark is a damn entertaining show! :D

And I would LOVE to see Green Goblin make a return in the "rebooted" series. Dafoe was awesome in the first movie...but I agree about the silly Power Rangers costume. It just....didn't work for me. I like my Green Goblin :XD:

You know something ironic? Patrick Page, the original Green Goblin, played Scar in the Broadway production of The Lion King at one point! :D
