I was just browsing ebay, and found this rather interesting item. Anyone seen this before? Is it original?... I kinda don't think so, but it looks pretty proffesional and cloolsome  cool http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&category=551&item=3724208889&rd=1

Heh, I love what it says:

'KISS MY SHINY BUTT!'  anybody that knows anything about futurama knows this is the famous saying of Girder bending robot "Bender" !

Ideal for any true Furturama collector!

Oh...and they were so close  roll eyes

Valuation: 650.00
Somehow i doubt that, it looks like a painted scan-art basically.

Looks cool.. and the starting bid is .99 pounds...  Is it wroth 650? I doubt it.  But would be kinda cool to have.  Although as slater says, you could prolly make one easily yourself and hang it in your living room...

yeah, and If you used a straight edge ruler, You could acomplish the same thing, and It'd look alot better.

And those don't look like oil paint strokes, they look acrylic, w/ a fat assed brush. You can see the sloppy brush strokes. As well as coloring mistakes, chunks, and smears. Sloppy, rushed work doesnt make it "expensive", just crappy.

650.00 pounds, My Shiny Butt. Give me 650.00 and I'll make you a freaking life sized Bender out of Aluminum and Sheet metal.. .. hell I could even wire the eyes, and make the chest cavity work.

.. I didn't ask you for a completely reasonable excuse, I asked you to get busy..

Art is generaly valued by size (unless the artist work is in high demand). Thats probably how they came up with the price.

This work however is not worth the canvas it was painted on. Its rushed, sloppy and unoriginal

If you can make the chest cavity work as shown on the show (hold more than physics dictates it should be able to, and whatever the situation needs), then you're on! 650 pounds is what, ten bucks Canadian?

About the painting: It looks cool enough that I would be proud if I made it, but no way is it worth paying money for. Especially to someone who gets the catchphrase wrong.

Kurt Black sometimes paints similar (better) paintings of Fry, Bender and Simpsons characters under the label pop art... There are a lot of bad paintings on ebay for a similar small starting bid, this one is 20 with postage. Also I suspect the silver is acrylic, not sure about the rest.

I comissioned Kurt Black to do two paintings for me (links below). Bender is for me  wink and Stewie is a gift for my cousin. They look great in person!

Yep, it is acrylic - I've got a scenery paint shop cupboard full of the stuff  smile

It looks really sloppy - I mean, I could paint that. That's not saying much.  smile
