Finally... stupid lousy imageshack...


Pic is done - many thanks to everyone who offered fixits and encouraging words smile

It feels a little creepy, masturbating over something another bloke drew.
...Mind you, not creepy enough to stop.

Cheers Tedward - glad you like it big grin Wussed out on trying fancy lighting effects, but I like the way it turned out.

I could worry about heaping praise on the pic and inadvertedly sounding slightly perverted, but since Coldy has removed the bar I think I can safely say: Great pic Marcus, looks wonderful! big grin

In response to your PM, I do indeed finally have some more Futurama pics done smile
(I'm still meaning to do that FSB one for you...)





Hope you alls likes smile

Zed, those are absolutely fantastic. It's interesting how they're, if you don't mind me saying so, slightly grotesque and yet still incredibly easy on the eyes and so artfully done. How long did it take you to do those?

Cheers Tedward - glad you like it big grin Wussed out on trying fancy lighting effects, but I like the way it turned out.

I'd say it's as light as it needs to be. I guess we wouldn't want too many shadows obscuring the forms now, would we?  smile

Yay Zed-pics! big grin Frighteningly good hair, Leela's eye, and the warm, realistic skin tones. But is Fry about to sneeze, or cry, or is he 'turning japanese'...?

Amy's dressing gown and bedsheets are excellent, and... lookit, you've even done fingernails! She does look a little down, though...

1st pic's my favourite - wistful Leela wins it  smile

Leela has a flavor.

Purple flavor, I bet.
Someone sharper than me mentioned this, and pointed out I'd accidently drawn Leela the wrong way up in the pic... tongue

Cheers for all the very nice comments everyone smile

@Tedward: Cheers! big grin
I'm interested in what you mean by 'grotesque' - I don't take any offence at all; I am quite interested in what you mean by it though - I may well agree. smile
As for time... technically speaking not a huge amount of time. Since I've found out how to use layer masks it saves a lot of time, because I can make the outlines and shading around the edges as rough as I like, then use the layer mask to refine the edges with much more control. If that makes any sense? Certainly a WACOM makes it much easier too smile Still looking at at least a few hours - Amy was a bit longer because of the pinikity details.

@Coldy - cheers, though my apologies if I've really brought the tone of the thread down tongue
Technically speaking both pics aren't a reflection of my mood at the moment...but I am pretty miserable to be honest, in general.
I did this a few weeks back which *did* reflect my mood:


A sort of very rushed, very slap-dash self-portrait in the medium of a Futurama character. I did this before I came back to Uni...

@Marcus - ta, mate big grin
As I said the Fry/Leela isn't technically supposed to be a reflection of my current mood, though actually it could be in the fact that he's as you say either about to sneeze (he has a cold like me) or he's crying (as I am a fair bit just recently). I was fearing some people might think he may be climaxing, which is why I tried to make it clear he's fully clothed. But anyway. tongue
In truth his expression is based loosely on an expression created by Nikita Mikhalkov in an old Soviet film I like where he basically replies to spirit-crushing news with a silent "oh fuck no!". But I don't think I carried it. hmpf

But honestly the idea for both came to me quite a while ago, back when I was mostly happy.

I do have much more perky pics in mind, I will get round to doing soon! Cheers again! smile

'Rushed' and 'slap-dash'? Are you _trying_ to make us feel woefully inferior? It's working on me... big grin And och - the sneeze/climax thing was just a crappy joke, knew fine well what it was _really_ about! You pulled off 'oh fuck no!' nicely  wink

I dunno what Tedward's thoughts were, but I read 'grotesque' as a sort of caricature; an image of a well known person/character skewed or manipulated in some way to make it a visual representation of some intangible quality. Interestingly, from your own words, p'haps to demonstrate an emotion, or emotional state - an emotional haemonculus, an 'altered' visual representation of well-known characters, that reifies the the impact of affect on our psychological state.

(I must get back to writing for Pseud's Corner at Private Eye)

All of which is a world away from the x-toon critiquing I usually do, which comes down to 'less kit, more tit' laff

Yes, I meant something to this effect, but Marcus has explained it better than I would have. It’s that you’ve taken the Groening-style characters and distorted their appearance to be more “realistic,” I suppose, and in doing so given the subjects a look that is somewhere in between their original forms and a truly reality-based image (what with the interesting facial features and all). That, combined with the moodiness of the pictures, makes for a very interesting look. Perhaps I should have mentioned something to do with impressionism or expressionism as well.  tongue

And nice job on that emotional self-portrait, too!

Ah, cheers then smile
As for the rushed thing, I'm certainly not trying to make anyone feel inferior! It was rushed though, I mean look at her freakishly long hands and bad anatomy! tongue
Not to mention, I got her wristamjig upside down...

Ah okay. It's much appreciated! smile
To be honest I thought you may be alluding to the notion that has been lingering around my mind on the idea that you *can* take a 'realistic' depiction of a cartoon character too far - which is sort of what I fear I do with these. I can't seem to shade in Amy's face without making her look at least 10-40 years older. That and Groening style characters probably never were supposed to look entirely life-like - so trying to do so results in an image that is ultimately slightly disturbing. Reminds me of another artist who was trying much the same thing - taking various characters and trying to make images of them appear photo-realistic and while it worked really well with some, his depiction of Homer Simpson looked kinda off-putting.

But as you didn't mean that I shan't worry! big grin tongue

Well you know, before I start blah blahing once more about my weakened emotional state, which would warrant more face slapping, I'll just say at that time I wasn't using any references and didn't much care to be honest. But if, as you point out, they sometimes make the same mistake in the show itself, I feel completely vindicated! big grin

Actually, come to think of it, what with my drawing Leela in dresses, different coats, in armour, effectively naked, dressed as a member of the Russian Armed Forces, and otherwise completely out of character, I realised I very rarely draw her wristamajig at all... >_> <_<

Well, that is actually somewhat close to what I was saying, but there’s still no need for you to worry, because I do not think that you took the realism too far at all. Like I said, the more realistic style you’ve given the pictures, along with the moodiness, makes them quite interesting to look at and they still are very nicely done and aesthetically pleasing despite their more saddened tone. Again, good work!  smile

Directions: Pull up the full-size image and hold your face about a foot and a half from your monitor, with your eyes level. Then cross your eyes slightly until 2 "ghost images" begins to form. Align the ghost images so they are perfectly superimposed on eachother, then tell your brain "OK, that image is 3D"



Just doing some testing smile

No, it's not a Clock Raper. It's an actual drawing that you put effort into and use correct spelling that I promised I would make for her like a month (or it's probably actually closer to two months) ago.

But if you want I'll post a Clock Raper... That's a lie I wouldn't do that...
