Don't you just hate it, when Kirsten Dunst just dumps you on the walk of fame? You ask if she has kept the cheerleader outfit from Bring it on, and baam, you're out!

I guess I didnt provide enough info.

Its a photo of Tom Cruise's star that I manipulated. I drew the RocketSeason Logo over the camera insignia in the middle, and just added my name above it.

PaemrI - are you starring in "Survivor"?
Yep, got to start from somewhere again, I guess everything started going downwards due to my ego after that Michael Jackson video I starred in, in the eighties...

robinayles

PaemrI - so I guess you'll be busy testifying against him at trial? :)

No avatar yet, so this is a self-portrait...um...sort of a loose one.

Ephesus - nice work on your logo integration there!
Vitriolic - nicely again.
Franky Mo - I like it

As some might know from my last entery, I just recently got a wacom... so I'm still getting used to it. It's the first time I'm doing a digital 2D character. As you can tell I still have a lot to learn about coloring. Oh well... I hope it comes with time. :)

Been out painting the town red, giving the papparazzi something to see. Andrewley turned all the water into wine and Mustardwash drank a bit too much. robinayles prefers her Martinis dry. Me, I just look good. :)
About 4 hours, Wacom &ps.

andrewley
10-10-2004, 11:37 AM
Ilikesoup - Love it - and oddly enough that's pretty much how last night went, with my good friend, Andrew Wong, decorating the streets of Manchester with his vomit.

(although I couldn't change water into wine, I managed to perform my amazing feat of turning vodka into bad dancing and cheesy chat-up lines :) )

Ilikesoup
10-10-2004, 07:29 PM
Andrewley-- lol, glad you like it. I figured that after all Jesus has been through he certainly deserves a night on the town with friends ;). BTW, hope your friend is ok. As Daily Sketch #111 demonstrated, hangovers are no fun.

ilikesoup - Cool sketch! Thanks for including me in your night on the town. I do like the maritinits dry....shaken, not stirred! :)

Poor MustardWash, can't hold his wine!

I think this is one of your best sketches (not just cause I'm in it) I really like the background too.

I never was much of a wine guy. You hit the nail on the head soup! Great picture! I agree with robin that this is one of your better sketches. (partly because Im in it :p jk) Keep up the good work buddy! :applause:

Vitriolic: Awesome! Havent laughed that hard in awhile. :thumbsup:
robinayles: great job and choice of faces. fits well
SalamanderCoral: Classic!!
Jasel: Great followup! Ingenious use of Taron

robinayles & Mustardwash, thanks so much for the compliments. Was a fun pic to do. :)

Keep an eye out, I might round up the old gang for the "What happens in Vegas" sketch, and since Mustardwash is a local he can show us around.

robinayles, nice sketch BTW-- I like the highlights on the raincoats. If I'm on your left, that means I'm Donald O'Connor, right? Gotta go practice! Moses supposes his toeses are roses. . .

Moses supposes his toeses are roses. . .That's right "Donald" - and Moses supposes erroneously! The real test is if you can do the "Make 'em Laugh" dance!

Also, thank you ilikesoup and MustardWash for the kudos.

umm... I know I'm several days late, I'm sorry, but I was out of the city in a four-day weekend, and I hated when I got back and saw that I missed this one, so here is mine, the new version of the oscar ceremony:
