Awesome pic!  Some nice subtle touches, like Bender holding  picture of himself.  What creativity!  (I do have one question though.  Where did you get that background picture from?  It kinda reminds me of an anti-matter core from Star Trek.) wink

Bender-is-Great:
I took the pic (using the shutter timer) at the Space Quest Casino at the Las Vegas Hilton. It is actaully connected to the Star Trek attraction and Quark's bar & Restaraunt at the same hotel. That be me in the pic.

Nurdy:
That's a tough job. You sure you're up for it?

Teh mega-awesome, Cap'n!  I really like the Dumpster one ... it really struck a chord with me for some reason.  And of course Pirate Bender kicks shiny metal ass, as promised.  Keep up the good work!

Anatomy of a Fan Art

Where does it all come from? There are many ways to put together a piece of artwork. For my Futurama Pyrate pieces, I've been culling bits and pieces from various sources and cobbling them togther to suit the needs at hand. I may grab a few screen grabs and cut and paste parts into new poses, some stuff I just sketch in Photoshop using the Wacom Tablet and Stylus. With the exception of the Robot Devil and Zapp Brannigan, all the backgrounds are from photos that I took. I've never grabbed from other fan art. Yet. If I do, it will be soley with the reason of tributing the fan art in question.

When I did the Fry piece, I wanted to find a pose that I thought I remembered as a James Dean pose. (hinted at in the teaser pic with the blurry Amy in the foreground and Fry in the shadows). Appropos, as it is a well known fact that Fry's regular series clothes are actually what James Dean wore in Rebel Without a Cause. Well, I couldn't find the pose I was looking for, so I ended up using the pose from the promo picture for Giant.

While working on the piece, I kept thinking to myself  "Why does that house look so familiar?" Then I happened to catch the episode Where the Buggalo Roam on AS, and it hit me. - That's Amy's parent's house.

Yet another James Dean connection. I had wanted to include the house in the Fry Pyrate pic as a painting on the wall or something, but it just wasn't woking out, so I dropped the idea.
I do the pics in Photoshop using layers.
One layer is the background, then I have a "construction" layer where I assemble all the poses and sketch work, then over that is a solid white layer that I make transpartent to use to fade out the sketch layer. Then a top layer that I use for the final "Inking". When the black line work is done, I go back to the white layer, make it solid again (not transparent) and do all my coloring, shading, and maybe some lighting effects on that layer. (Erasing all the extra white from around the outside of the figure being done.) All this is done at 200 dpi.
When the piece is finished, I flatten the layers and resize the piece to the dimmensions I want, and reduce the dpi to 72 and save as a JPEG.

Here's a breakdown of the layers.
The sketch layer gets trashed.
The white areas seen below are actully transparent or clear when working in layers.
Shown is, the final "inked" or black line layer, then the color layer, then the color layer with lighting effects added, then the final image.


Thanks everybody for the kind words and appreciation of my work.

Awesome work, Cap'n.  Did you cut out that picture of you by hand and paste it into Quark's bar?

No. I really am in that picture, along with the Mrs. (she's behind Bender).
We were very dark in the original pic , so I used the dodge tool to lighten myself up a bit.
Funny, now that I think about it, the dodge tool in Photoshop is shaped like a...like a...
dare I say it?
A ball joint.

 And the actual bar pic is pretty dark.

And how come I didn't get anything photoshopped into my pic?  No Bender, no pirate robots, not even a balljoint!

Did the Durango ever make it home, by the way?  I read an article about the recall entitled "Chrysler In No Hurry to Fix Durango Ball Joint Problem."  That's fer sure.

And did you ever find that basket, or has Bender made off with your champagne glasses?

Ummm...Uhh...homina homina homina..
Working on it now?
The Durango made it home.
The basket with the glasses never turned up.
The owner of Rope remembered seeing us with it and said he'd keep an eye out for it.
We just haven't had a chance to get back over there yet.
(Yeah, I know it's practically just around the corner, but I am extremely lazy.)

The secret is to make it look like it's really there.
Now if somebody would kindly remove the juvenille
and poorly Photoshopped "I like penis", I'd be much obliged.

That's fine, I just don't want there to be any hard feelings because of me spamming your thread with a joke that probably wasn't even funny. The important thing is eggs saw it.

I'll stop with the talk of it now.
