Finally I go.
Mister potato sings his love to Miss potato. But it is "flat" and it is "cruciform". is their love possible?

06 June 2004, 07:34 AM (

he is "cruciform" and she is "flat".
This time, their love becomes really impossible...:cry:

06 June 2004, 07:58 AM
Mr Potato Needs some lovin':cry: im crying coz im laughing so hard. I love the concept, very funny indeed.

I would suggest that Mr potato hasnt given up with his current "Phillips Head" attachment. You could show a trail of so called attachements that havent worked, some Allen Keys, chissels, drill attachments, routers, grinders etc. its endless. Keep the updates coming.

Oh and WELCOME! to the competition:thumbsup: :beer: :beer: :beer:

A small cleaning.
Following stage: the layout.

06 June 2004, 03:30 PM (

A small test of colors before passing to the "serious" things...

06 June 2004, 04:43 PM
Gotta love how the fleshy bits are riveted to the metal bits. :)

All this potato business has got me hungry for some deep-fried spud.
Maybe when Mr and Miss Potato work things out attachment compatibility wise you could throw a few of their offspring in the deep-fryer for me.


06 June 2004, 06:30 PM
I really like the idea in this one. It looks like the perspective is off on the philips head though. Usually on something this cartoony it wouldn't bother me; however, it's pretty much the main focus, so it's bugging me a little.

06 June 2004, 10:08 PM
Just a little "pervert" critic : your characters seem to be robots disguised in human. Especially the hand color treatment.:curious:

:thumbsup: I wish I had been able to realize such a funny picture for my own machine flesh .

06 June 2004, 06:53 AM
Thank you for all these comments ;)
Even if that will not be seen in the next stages, I will take account of your good remarks. :beer:

(if I write little, it is because my English is monstrous :blush: and that my potatos await me :p )

06 June 2004, 02:35 PM (

inking in progress. One applies, one applies...

06 June 2004, 06:53 AM (

ouf! inking is finished!
now, let's go to the color!
(Argh! 11 days...)

06 June 2004, 12:46 PM (

that gently starts to take life...

06 June 2004, 01:15 PM
Dear Hephez,

very cool concept.....can't stop smiling. I'm glad to see this sort of perspective of the brief. You've obviously got a great sense of humour.

I like the execution....very appealing!


06 June 2004, 02:21 PM
thank you Paul
Coming from a Master, that touches me much!! (excuse my English) :thumbsup:

06 June 2004, 03:38 PM (

Mister potato is happy : its love takes colors... :blush:

06 June 2004, 01:12 PM (

Now, I put potatos in scene. That will be the final format. I will finish the Miss before occupying me of the details. Like one advised it to me, I will integrate other elements for Mister potato (a corkscrew, a key...)

06 June 2004, 02:30 PM
Great stuff, one of the most original entries I've seen on this forum! Stronger colours would be nice maybe?

06 June 2004, 02:38 PM
Thanks for your comment fishermanDavis! :beer:
with regard to the colors, I will carry out some tests at the end, promised! :thumbsup:

06 June 2004, 12:38 PM (

All is in place. like one suggested it to me, I have densified certain colors (thank you fishermanDavis). Still some nuances on the tools (thank you sketchfiend) and I will be finally at the "final coloring".
Yeah!!! Still 8 days !!!

06 June 2004, 03:48 PM
Thanks bud!! i loved what you have done in your entry. Whit so many serious and dark and disturbing themes coming through in the entries its very refreshing to see some thing with a bit of it!!! Goodluck with the rest of the image.:bounce: :thumbsup: :D :beer: :beer:

06 June 2004, 02:09 PM (

yes yes yeeeees!!!
I go to the end! Still some details here and there. Then, I will be able to spend my time to look at the progression of your drawings...
Hurry up, guys! Only 7 days!!!

06 June 2004, 04:58 PM

I wish you the best !

Good luck !



06 June 2004, 11:53 AM (

Hurrah, I succeeded!!! I post the final image! thank you all those which sent their comments to me, and... good luck to all !!!!

06 June 2004, 05:17 PM
haha, great to see a little humor here. Everyone is so serious (including me) with these dark grotesque ideas. This is great, however, I don't think this couple is compatible as he has a phillips head and she has he flathead, :p


06 June 2004, 03:02 PM
good and funny idea :) i like it!


06 June 2004, 05:01 PM
:bounce: extremely funny!!! Nice to see such a concept among all those monsters here!! Congratulations!!:applause:

06 June 2004, 12:24 PM
I don't think that anything of what he have would fit her needs ;)

06 June 2004, 12:18 PM
Too funny! Great concept man.....The colors are great and the expressions really tell you something about the characters....great piece!

good luck in the voting!!

06 June 2004, 12:27 PM
Goli, feeesh, Drumwhore, ioio, sun_olya, Sandpiper and all those which encouraged me : THANK YOU!! :beer:

I am glad to see that of my potatos you like the adventures. :p

Good luck to all!! :thumbsup:

06 June 2004, 01:36 PM
Ha- haaaa!:D :D :D

haha sort of reminds of the mathquest books i had way back when i was in elementry school, only they had a bit more of a mild subject matter.

good luck to you.

06 June 2004, 06:49 AM
Hi hephez,
What about the potatoe chidren to come ? If Mr & Miss Potatoe can reach their goal... ;) This is one of my humorous favorites.

Wishing you good luck.

06 June 2004, 07:01 AM
Oh yes Spacesnail, it's a good question... What could resemble the children?... Chips? fried? "pommes de terre sautées"? :p
Humm! if they succeed, I keep you a baby? :thumbsup:

Thank you and GOOD LUCK! :beer:

06 June 2004, 08:39 PM
:D Great entry and a real departure from the rest of the morbid bunch....

I await the animated series and merchandise deals...

I'll never look at a potatoe in the same way again...

Great stuff...Good luck :applause: :applause: :thumbsup:

06 June 2004, 10:19 AM
Very funny. It's refreshing and a nice cartoony style. All the rest is so serious....

Great stuff!!! ...and good luck!!
