Latest Update: Final Image: Possum Toss 'em
http://www.cgnetworks.com/challenge/entries/8/5714/5714_1116488036_medium.jpg (http://www.cgnetworks.com/challenge/entries/8/5714/5714_1116488036_large.jpg)

Behold the latest art rebellion!

I call it Neo-Raunchy-Dudism.

The blob on the left is a notorious drunken barbarian warrior poacher from the Norweigian lowlands.

The blob on the right is his wive, whom he kidnapped when she was six, and chasing racoons in her native woods.

The hairy blob in the middle is supposed to be an opossum, tossed into the pit of green frogators at the bottom.

The warlord poacher detests weakness, and in an attempt to toughen up his already battered mate, he forces her to throw her pets into the gullets of carnivorous jumpin' toads. In this scene, she heaves an old wise, yet blind opossum.

Several years prior, her turtle snagged onto her dress, pulling her partially over the cliff. She was lucky to loose only her right leg.

Perhaps this will be the last animal sacrifice, as she coated her pet's fur with skunkroot, a little known vitamin, highly toxic to amphibians and rock lizards.

Indeed, oneday, her blind rodent will return, and gnaw off the smelly warlord's preferred drinking hand.

Or maybe just trip him one day while he visits his reptillian horde.


Phew!

Neo-Ruanchy-Dudism is a perpetually time drain.

I'm going back to Etch-A-Sketches.

Thanks to everyone for politely helping me waste more time.

Even masters have masters, and servants must be subjected to the tyrany of both -- or be the scapegoat.

For example, a carnival bear that rides scooters might be tethered to an ungainly fellow wearing a zorro mask, who fancies himself a beastmaster. When this carny tries sneaking away with the scooter-bear to start his own self-employed sideshow, the carnival foreman congeals from the shadows, quick draws his colt .45's, motioning for everyone to get on back in their tent.

The Zorro imitator begins to snivel, jerks his thumb back, telling the foreman it was the bear's fault, the bear told him to do it.

The foreman spits back that it makes no difference. The carnival and all its attractions, however feeble, belong to him. Now back to bed or there's gunna be some loud bleedin' and gut squirtin'.

Later, after the dejected Zorro cries himself to sleep, scooter bear scratches off a tick into his cellmate's pile of hay, sensing that some masters are more convincing than others, and the lesser of two shouldn't be without parasitic bug bites.

Another silly angle. Maybe if everyone were neked, and a bearded lady were centerstage stradling a gattlin gun, smoking a dozen cigars, I could trick people into thinking I done did something nifty.

Upright bears wearing beanies, standing in front of undersized tricycles just doesn't have enough esoteric, subconscious, omnivorous subtext.

Plus, nobody can tell what anything is, 'cuase I draw like I've been recently thawed from the neolithic era, and am more concered with ridding the blank page of evil spirits, than makin' fierce pictures.

I s'pose, then, I entered this drawing contest to advocate scribbling as a way of life.

Yep. Now me try again.

The servant gives back some disrespect, for his own enjoyment.

The more \"sketches\" of this scenario I do, the less I care about it.

Blood and guts and sexual suggestion is far more amusing than anthopomorphizing forest creatures.

Hola, madman,

:bounce:

Thanks for the encouragement. That trophy under your name makes me feel as though I've already lost. :) :shrug:

I think this time around I'll get the initial hyperactive gobbledygook out early, and hopefully get into a more productive mindset. Right now, as you can see, I've done little else than fart with my fingers.

Also, I can't believe you didn't finish in the top two with your MachineFlesh entry or that other, more recent contest, Space Oprah.

Perhaps this time, everyone will fricken' realize, holy crap, that guy's inspiring. Let's give him some loot!

So, begin your image stampede. Try to impress yourself, this time around.

What makes the servant necessary? If your're an opposum, about to be tossed into a bone littered pit of slobbering, snapping lizards, then you can tell the old bat holding you by the tail, that you'll grant her three wishes if she lets you live.

Of course, she'll say make it as many wishes as she wants.

Okay, you'll say. Just please don't feed the scaley beasts of the lower canyon.

Hence a deal is struck. The servant is allowed to live, while the master wishes for burly princes, golden toe nails, indestructible mammaries that can be enlarged at will, infinite knowledge of erogenous zones, mighty buttocks, immunity to cheese, eternal youth, eternal fitness, eternal peaches and strawberry scent, erternally clean urinals, x-ray vision, ability to shapeshift into a well-hung knight, chickens that cook their own eggs . . .

. . . After a few hours, when the master complains that none of her fantasies have been fulfilled, you can tell her you only made that wish nonsense up to save your hide, then bite her calf, and run away to a more enchanted mountain range.

But, for a few tedious hours, you'll be in her service as a wishbringer, wishing, yourself, perhaps, that she let the lizards have you.

Ilikesoup,

:applause:

I'm happy you remember me. I stopped the daily sketch group after about a month, I think, when it suddenly felt like I was writing daily reports on the elasticity of beef using esoteric equations that were originally designed to calculate the age of the earth if a woodchuck could chuck wood and peter piper pecked his picker with a pickle.

I lost consciousness for a spell.

But this contest has rudely stamped out my free floating anxiety, so I'm compelled to sketch again.

And I'm glad to see you have as well.

Let's make somebody throw up!

If a boy were ever named Peacock Pencilrub, he would read lots of esoteric Canadian periodicals from the 1970's (like Moose Tracker), counteract farsightedness by wearing thick bifocals, grease down his hair, maintain a wide-eyed gawk of disgust, and talk with his upper lip flexed as though he could smell a fart which twasn't his own.

For fun, he'd pretend he were a trash compactor / bug jar, constantly roaming the playground, scooping up all the discarded bubble gum wrappers, cigarette butts, fruit cores, and wayward bugs then hide them in his mouth.

He'd pretend to be master of nature's outcast, the protector of all that needs love. The trash and insects -- servants to keep him company, and provide some nonessential protiens if arbitrarily swallowed.

But, to outsiders, he'd be that kid with a fistfull of bugs, kissing a petrified dog turd.

Later, Peacock would mature into an entymologist and marry a nutritionist who resembled a mantis. At one point, they'd try and raise Moose for meat, but quickly give up.

So, if your last name is Pencirub, please don't name your kids Peacock.

Or Moonskunk.

Thanks for saying so. Perhaps one day you can laugh while drinking milk, and have it trickle out your nose.


Jezzarts,

I should probably choose one to get harsh on soon, but scribbling nonesense is fun, especially when somebody admits to snickering at it.

Though I'd prefer vomit. :shrug:



bardakos,

:love:

I'm sure you don't mean that, but many thanks. I think the Zorro imitator (whose real name is Ralph Bunyon), is already spoken for by scooter bear, who, one day, will probably tear his head off when his affections are rejected. :applause: .

Hi ravioli_rancher

38 days remaining:

With 48 days remaining, my can opener broke.

With 47 days left, I felt really hungry, and lost all desire to draw and paint.

For nine days, I rolled around the house, inhaling bugs and dustweeds.

Yesterday, I found a quaint hand-powered device with which I can now poke holes into cans.

I had some baked-bean juice.

Still, moral is low.

I plopped into ZBrush for a quick study in volume, then traced over that with goopy black lines in Painter.

I'll continue on with the opossum jive.

Instead of a magic rodent, though, it will be a simple pet, loved by one owner, detested by another. Here, we see it thrown into a pit of garbage disposal reptiles because he who detests it says it, "Just smells like dirty shanks," while, she who loves it is afraid she'll get whacked in the face with a hammer if she doesn't do as she's told.

The 'possum survives, of course, then chews the face off he who hates it, marries she who loves it, then, tragically, is hit by a rogue wagon wheel while foraging for nuts (vehicular verminslaughter, by the way, is the leading cause of 'possum estrangement.)

Possums make bad pets, and even less reliable husbands.

Look! I made an anatomically incorrect carnivore! Rarrr!

I tried painting, but passed out in frustration, woke up, and did it in zBrush.

Just a resource image based on another resource image.

Perhaps one day further down the road I can use it in a scene promoting swamp ecosystem dung heeps.

spacesnail,

I've had zBrush since it was 1.23b (pre zSphere, texture master days). But, since every revision is a brand new program, I'm basically a new user too.

But, opossums can't play possum. Rather, they enjoy pantamiming gluttony and futility on the street. Which is another reason their mortality rate is sky high.

This little guy, though isn't a corpse. He's feelin' his oats, and the poor crocodiles are about to get a lesson in romance. :love:

The greatest benefit of the single pixel brush is you cannot turn it around and start stabbing yourself in the eyes after scratching lines for a whole freakn' week.

No.

I hereby decree this the single most dispressing, waste of time, wad of pixels in the history of the internet.

This includes all obscure pornographic matieral ever "published."

Two weeks on THIS?

I need therapy and a reeducation.

Also, I'm engaging on a single pixel brush boycott crusade. It is the worst tool ever programmed. Blech! Ptooie!

I'm going to dangle upside down from my roof and expunge all bitterness leftover from this "experience."

Then, maybe with two days left, I'll paint something else.

Or throw my wacom and photoshop disk, straight into the swamp, then chase tad polls for most of the summer.

After seeing Walrus', Enya's, SpaceSnail's, and, oh three hundered others AMAZING work, I realize, I'm merely a caveman with a stick, drawing lines to pass the time away.

Blech! Ptooie!

You pull this off and EVERYBODY will want their own single pixel brush! Keep fighting the good fight. And thanks for checking out my thread. It keeps me from goofing off.

While hanging upside down, I swallowed some sort of tailed insect, and nearly choked to deat. Hence I will stay indoors from now on and work on this spit tower of pixels.

And I think your entry is coming along superbly. Course, in a field of 10,000 other amazing entries, it's easy to get squeezed down to obscurity. I too have gathered few views, but, in this case, that's fine :applause:

Here's a nauseating flat color experiment. Notice my desperate use of dark blue to establish mood.

Note too that its not really the mood of the picture, just mine in realization that I'm actually going to color this stupid thing.

I've also run Painter's woodcut filter on it.

Not surprisingly, since it was already an "etching" it didn't do anything. But, at least I'm giving it my most frantic effort.

Rather than chase frogs and choke on swamp gases, I opened painter and found the cheatin', good for nuthin' cloner function that nimrods and wannbes use.

Then it hit me. I'm a wannabe nimrod. I can use those.

So I dumped my zBrush moon in Painter, than dabbed it's 3d shank with a flat oil cloner.

I hate this stupid image. and decide to cram it into the painter woodcut shredder, which fixed it a bit. The Detail has returned, and the ZBrush look has finally vanished.

I decree this a personal triumph and debacle -- The work is much improved, thanks to the demoralizing discovery that stupid filters make better painters than me.


One day, I'll buy some watercolors and be done with computers. Until then, I'll fondly press the woodcut button on ZBrush Models that have already been Cloned with Painter brushes.


Thank you all for continuing to post kind words during my psychoses. Makes me feel like a pet fish.

Clearly, some participants spent lots of time hiding under the piano, pretending to be a foot pedal, instead of learning something about two dimensional painting.

Cory you sly dog, you went and finished when we weren't looking. I was a bit worried you wouldn't come through at the end.

Good luck on getting the file up to the ftp server. I am in the process of waiting for the render of my dumb image. 6 hours to go till contest close... maybe I left it a bit.

Behold the latest art rebellion!

I call it Neo-Raunchy-Dudism.

The blob on the left is a notorious drunken barbarian warrior poacher from the Norweigian lowlands.

The blob on the right is his wive, whom he kidnapped when she was six, and chasing racoons in her native woods.

The hairy blob in the middle is supposed to be an opossum, tossed into the pit of green frogators at the bottom.

The warlord poacher detests weakness, and in an attempt to toughen up his already battered mate, he forces her to throw her pets into the gullets of carnivorous jumpin' toads. In this scene, she heaves an old wise, yet blind opossum, who goes by the name Orville.

Several years prior, her turtle snagged onto her dress, pulling her partially over the cliff. She was lucky to loose only her right leg.

Perhaps this will be the last animal sacrifice, as she coated her pet's fur with skunkroot, a little known vitamin, highly toxic to amphibians and rock lizards.

Indeed, one day, her blind rodent will return, and gnaw off the smelly warlord's preferred drinking hand.

Or maybe just trip him one day while he visits his reptillian hoarde.


Phew!

Neo-Ruanchy-Dudism is too demanding.

I'm going back to poking the dirt with twigs, with maybe quartly visits to the Etch-A-Sketchers Society.

Thanks to everyone for politely helping me waste more time.

Soapy,

:bounce:

Thanks for the carefull avoidance of a critique. I'm grateful. It stinks. And that's just fine. I . . . uh . . . wanted to make a stinky image. It's all part of a carefully . . . planned load of crap.

Sly dog, hmmm. I prefer to think of myself today as a mangy rodent, sifting through refuse for rotten fruit.

Hey! I found some!

:bounce:

I won an old watermellon! I'm a winner! My picture's a real winner!

Hooray!

Crap.

Thank goodness I submitted a final image. The really awful images won't leave anyone alone until someone says, "look, ugly, it's time to get submitted."

So that's what I did.

Also thank goodness the FTP finally worked after FIVE HOURS.

Good night to all and to all a bed bug!

Thanks again, soapy. :buttrock:

No problem Cory, actually I wasn't avoiding critique I was just brain dead from endless hours of staring at my junky image. I know just how you feel about your image, I am hating mine too. I can't tell what is good and bad at the moment the contest seems to have polluted my mind. So I will just throw in a 'hey great image!' and a 'nice job and congratulations on finishing'..

You should get a prize for the funniest thread.

Well now that I have had my coffee and calmed down after a night of insanity, I will say that you shouldn't beat yourself up too much. You pumped out a fine image. At first I didn't like the surface finish but I am starting to warm up to it, I think it suits the image a lot. It has that double licked art of the insane Van Gogh intensity goin on.. The close ups give me the feeling that the full res final looks a whole lot better than the shrunk image. The same thing happened to my image, ie; the small image feels a bit noisy. I think your z-brush method thing is kool as hell. And finally, your stories and comments are a hoot. Cheers man, its been a slice.

Cory,

Well, you might not have made anybody vomit like you had hoped but you've impressed and entertained many, myself included. You've got a wild imagination, my friend, and the resolve to have seen this thing through to the end. Oppossums, alligators and circus bears beware, for there is a new sheriff in town.

I salute you! :applause: :buttrock: :arteest:

soapy, 1st_angel, sepphora, Ilikesoup,

You're all way too positive. :bounce:

I assure you, were this a scractch and sniff contest, it'd release the stink of possum fries.

In any event, I appreciate your extraordinary politeness and encouragement.

Now listen to some industrial goat rock in reverse, to generate some rage, then beat up some old llamas, get arrested, and break out of prison with a stick of dynmite hidden under your tongues.

You dont have to tell much about the stories of the pictures that you made.
They are telling enough.
Just release the minds of people who stare at those.
Maybe a breeze comes from childhood, pulls them somewhere,
else.

kuzgunoglu,

:cool:

Your generosity is appreciated.

And I much agree that the less said about this entry, the better.

Except, of course, to say that it has nothing to do with breeses from childhood. More likely, a gas leak from the biohazard waste plant tendrilling in beneath the screen door.

The inspiration it provides is endless and progressively delirious. :eek: :argh: :cry: :drool: :applause:

Look for it in a deserted factory near you. :bounce: :p
