Well, I figure I've posted enough art in the general thread to qualify for my own. 

I worked way too long on this scan... Taken from the promo picture for "Hell is Other Robots" of course.  big grin



More to come soon, mostly because I have no life.

Woohoo! Fire! Hell! Robots! Potential death! Go go Gadget-enjoyment!

And if you have no life, don't mind if I send you a message via AIM, because I'm in your boat there.

heyho Kloudes,
the pic is really good. the fire looks awesome. How do you make these?

Only one thing i don´t like so. The lines are a bit to fat, so sometimes it looksa bit too scratched.

Yep really nice work there Kloudes. The fire looks very well done...

Thank you, all.  You're too kind. Especially everyone who mentioned the flames, which I'm extra proud of.

@Homies:  The fire started out as a simple gradient, then I used a very soft-edge brush to make the gradient less uniform.  Finally, I took the smudge tool to it, and Voila!

As for the lines, I agree and disagree.  I prefer thick lines myself, however, you're absolutely right about the scratchiness, or pixelation.  I think I'm going to do my next scan in Photoshop instead of Fireworks; see if  that helps.

I'm not sure if this'll work in Fireworks (never used it before), but if you can export at a determined size, you can try exporting bigger than you want, then resize it in Photoshop or whatever to blur the lines slightly. Anyway, very cool scan Kloudes, the fire looks great (as everyone already said). I prefer thicker lines as well.  smile

That's actually a great idea, and it'll work in Fireworks.  Thanks!


Beep.

Just a nice, simple, and clean scan.  Took me half an hour, so I can't be too proud, but it was hard to resist such an adorable framegrab.

Ha, awesome. I've said it so many times that it's probably lost all meaning, but I love those moments when the ship is played for laughs. Great scan, doing a great scene justice.

Thank you again, everyone.  Here's a new scan that took me... forever.  It was a real pain in the ass, quite frankly.  I hope you all like it.   big grin

Wow, the shading is really good, and I love the effect on the moon. Most scans don't capture the scene properly in terms of the effects used in the actual animation or promo pics. Yours do. Great job.  wink

Awesome. I like how the moon in the background is all fuzzy. The shadowing rocks like others said. And that jacket is the perfect shade of green.

Damn fine scans Kloudes, the promo pictures are a good choice to try out neat shading, and you've got the neatest shading ever, I wouldn't have a clue where to begin on something like that. Can't wait for the next one!

Thanks for the comments, everyone  smile  For the holidays, I've put together a non-Futurama scan.  I couldn't find a holiday screenshot that I liked and that also has not been done before that was Futurama based, so oh well.  If it's any consolation I'm also posting the crappy X-mas based Fuurama ficlet I wrote months ago.  Happy Holidays, all!

Oh, and as a side note, I've decided to take on the crazy task of doing a scan from every episode. I'm going to need to pick up the pace...


The night air was bitterly cold in New New York.  The snow curled and whipped in a gale, leaving the streets eerily quiet excepting the howling wind.  It was X-mas Eve, but there was no joyous caroling; no lights twinkling.  The whole of Manhattan was boarded in their homes quietly waiting in fear, alert and ready.  Children held their parents.  Parents held their guns.  He was coming.  The unspeakable adjudicator of X-mas, the technological monster of mass murder mayhem:  Robot Santa.
   
Tucked away inside their now steel-plated and sealed headquarters, the Planet Express crew was listening.  After their last two encounters with Robot Santa, no one was about to take any chances.  There were no deliveries to be made that night, and delivery boy Phillip J. Fry had bought a present for his unrequited crush weeks earlier.  The first and foremost thing on everyone’s mind was vigilance, except for Dr. Zoidberg, who was eyeing the candy canes on their palm tree eagerly.  Bender was pacing nervously, remembering his short stint of playing Santa last Christmas.  Leela’s eye was narrowed, a gun slung on her belt.
   
Seconds of waiting turned into minutes; minutes soon into hours.  By 2 am, Bender decided he could use some ‘festive’ eggnog, and the professor had tucked his magnet away and commenced the distribution of gifts.  Leela was just about to open the first present of the night when a sound from the roof made everyone go quiet.  The tinny sound of jingle bells and a very malicious, very mechanical “Ho ho hoooo… Ho ho hoooo…” was coming from directly above them.  Leela’s lightening reflexes had retrieved her firearm in seconds.  Fry cowered behind her, knees knocking.
   
“Professor,” Leela commanded, trying to sound brave.  “Activate cameras!”
   
Farnsworth teetered over to a wall behind the couch and pressed a small red button.  The wall retracted, revealing a huge built in plasma television.  Fry’s eyes widened.  “No one told me that was there!” he said, sounding offended.
   
The others ignored him, watching Farnsworth fumble around in the pockets of his lab coat.  They tried to ignore the incessant “Ho ho hoooo…” coming from the roof.  Finally, the professor uncovered a large remote control, and activated the screen, showing a view of the roof.
   
The crew gasped.  He was there!  Robot Santa!  He had come back to… No, wait.  That wasn’t him.  That was…
   
Leela, Hermes, Cubert and Bender turned and glared at Farnsworth.  Leela stepped forward.  “Professor!” she said angrily.
   
“Huh whaaa?”
   
“What is the meaning of this?!”
   
The professor turned to the screen, which was currently displaying a small, brightly lit and mechanized Santa, waving happily.  The professor smiled.  “Oh, I must have forgot.  I put that on a timer…”
   
The whole crowd glared at him, and left the room, grumbling under their breaths.  The professor took one last look at the screen before turning it off.  “I thought he was cute…” he said unhappily, before following out them out of the room.

say what now

Ohhhh! I love Linus!

I gotta say Kloudes, I love your work. I like the fat lines too, and the shading on the other pic was excellentay! Very professional- I can't IMAGINE how much patience that took. It came out really nice.

Oh, and the ficlet was adorable. Well-written and cute. I loved Fry's comment about the TV screen and the Professor's comment at the end. Awww, he WAS cute. I want one!

Nice work!

Hey! You end the fic there? Where's the horror? Where's the bloodspray? That's not what xmas is all about!

On a side note, that really was well written. In terms of writing ability itself you could very easily write a worthwhile full-size fic. Unless you already have, in which case i'm only embarrassing myself by admitting that i havn't read/don't remember reading it.

Thanks everyone! 

@ Venus: Yes, I end there.  You are not the first one to complain about that.  smile  I haven't written a full fanfic, the problem being I have no idea for a plot.  When I think of one, I promise I'll ooze it out on paper.  As for saying it's well-written... Thank you.  That means a lot to me, since that's really what I was going for when I wrote it.  I'm not very good at humor, so I have to compensate in other areas...

Short and sweet. Like all things that end in -let should be. Well, I guess triplets can be tall jackasses if they really want. And there should be some long bracelets for the fat-wristed.

So now you are contemplating writing a full length fic?  Good call; more people with writing talent need to do that.

Again, thanks everyone.  The fact that you all come here and waste your time looking at my worthless art makes me very happy.  Tongue, I don't know what you're talking about, but it was amusing me anyway.  And JBERGES, you're too sweet...

Well, I screwed Futurama once, but I can't continue this trend.  So without further adieu, here's a new, (and boring!) scan. I just don't have the motivation to do something cool and shaded right now.

I like the use of faded pastel colors to give it that old-movie feel.
