As you may have noticed, I have been having trouble with uploading my pics.

Can any of you tell me how I can get my pics hosted without having to email them to MVP (or indeed any of you busy busy folks) all the time...?

I don't have a site of my own so I don't really want to start paying for space, I just need.. I don't know.... something!!!


Thanks for any help!



09 September 2004, 02:35 PM

09 September 2004, 02:37 PM

ImageShack (

09 September 2004, 04:40 PM
lol.. all i could think of was this... Photoshop.. 5 minutes.. Obvoious photo manipulation of the LOTR poster and bad picture of me.. yikes!. well.. it made me laugh.

09 September 2004, 04:54 PM
Cheers Conundrum, but it would seem that Dargon's one will be the one for me..!

Dargon, nice one mate.


09 September 2004, 06:32 PM
:wavey:well, I thought that this topic would be a good way to introduce you to my new avatar... I made the avatar yesterday, now it has a mouth, and eyes, and this kind of things, so now I can participate more easily in the avatar-related topics :cool: ;) (I hope there are more to come...)

pencil 15min, photoshop 1:30h

edit: I added letters (thanks to Ilikesoup, I didn't find myself comfortable making word games as I am not an english-speaker), I redid the background and cleaned up some of the scan dirt, now it looks more like a movie poster. the previous version is here (

09 September 2004, 06:35 PM
elmasfeo - love the new avatar! Also like your poster - good one!

Well done Elmasfeo!!Very funny but..why did u chose a foot??:D

09 September 2004, 07:55 PM
robinayles, thanks!
ilikesoup, lol, I was going to call it "the foot that loved me", or "the man with the golden toe", but that was a lot of letters to write down :D ... maybe I will edit the pic later and add all those tiny letters that movie posters have at the bottom, I will use your "sugestions" for sure!
andy... mmm... why did I chose a foot? I dont know, the idea was stupid enough...:shrug: :p btw, you've got a very well done picture :thumbsup:

I remember an old Bloom County strip where the punch line was Opus saying, "Hollywood is in a rut". They had made a film based on Thinner Thighs in 30 Days. Here's my tribute to Berke Breathed.

Andrewley, that is too funny for words!

09 September 2004, 01:55 AM
I want to see some of these movies...

Saw the photomanipulations of sagi_13 and couldn't resist sharing mine.
I'm not entering the daily sketch contest with it, so I'll just post a link to the jpg file.

It's a picture of my head on the body of 'Commodus' (from the movie Gladiator)
My best friend made it for me (Derby-Q Salano), I sent him the picture of me with the green leaves behind my ears and he made this picture for fun. So if anyone is to receive credit, it's him.

Hope you'll like it:


PS: some really great sketches here! I especially like andrewley's!

09 September 2004, 09:02 AM
This was an awesome topic, learnt alot.

Flash, 30 mins

andrewley - awesome as usual. love the idea, and the jesusmobile. awesome painting.

-andy- amazing painting, very real. Looks like the real thing.

el mas feo - hahah, cool idea.

09 September 2004, 09:17 AM
here's mine. Don't worry I'm a big fan of pulp fiction :)

bout 2 h, ps.

elmasfeo: haha I like your avatar man. Where did you get the idea to use a foot :scream: Nice poster too
roozelle: cool concept, it's a little empty tho.
augustus: cool man, really like it. A little more contrast wouldn't hurt tho.
andrewley Way cool! Really cool concept and execution.

09 September 2004, 12:57 PM
Thanks for the comments, I've just updated my picture in the first page, added some letters, redid background and cleaned up some scan dirt, I hope you like it.

Garma - looks really like an old poster, vey well done! did you paint over the original poster? it looks like you didn't, except for the tiny letters at the bottom...

Dirj - nice! that's cool! (btw, you are the first one who writes el mas feo separatedly :thumbsup: )

drawmonger - red X, it may be just me...

RobinAyles - good job, in "my other car is" you were piloting a starship, now you've got the world hunging from a rope...:argh: you are dangerous, children shouldn't be left alone! hehe...:D

Octothreat - great! I like your colors and brushes

andrewley - amazing job one more time, you make a lot with just a few strokes perfectly placed

roozelle - I like it, the idea, the composition, but... why did you use max? I think you could've done it much more easily in a 2D program...

-andy- it's very realistic, well done, I specially like the beard little hair

09 September 2004, 02:12 PM
Thank you, El Mas Feo. My mom always told me what a good baby I was, so now I'm making up for lost time and being bad! So does your username translate as "The Baddest" or "The Ugliest"? It seems that feo has more than one meaning depending on how you use it. I really like the changes you made to your poster. It looks great! And don't worry, your English is very good - far better than my Spanish!

There are so many good ones here - great job all of you!

Of course, we are all humbled by the continuing great work of Andrewley!

Garma, that Pig Fiction is pretty funny!

DrawMonger - all I see is the fatal red X

Andy - WOW! great!

09 September 2004, 03:44 PM
roozelle - I like it, the idea, the composition, but... why did you use max? I think you could've done it much more easily in a 2D program...Yes, it probably could have been done more easily in Illustrator, Flash or Freehand - but the computer that I use during the day doesn't have that software. So, I just decided to do it in max.

Thanks for your compliments - but - I can't really take credit for the composition - because the design is based off of the real movie "Funny Girl."

09 September 2004, 05:25 PM
had a lot of fun doing this bad boy...

Soz it's a bit late

Photoshop/far too long

09 September 2004, 05:49 PM
LOL -Thats awesome the ton!

09 September 2004, 06:04 PM
el mas feo--Nice! I've got some more bad puns ready if you need them:
Sue Laces
Fallon Arches
Leather Cortez (an old style of Nike sneaker)
Featuring music by Toe Jam

I like that you used the credits from "Jackass the Movie" :D

augustus--looks more like the cover of a poetry book, but I like it a lot!

andrewley-- Keeps blowing me away the more I look at it. Great color, placement and damn funny concept. Is there a plastic Jesus on the dashboard?

Octothreat--nice and creepy!

almost missed Malcolmvexxed-- a film that all of us can relate to! Like the b&w

robinayles--Robin Almighty? Just wait until the next avatar fight ! j/k

MVP--I just noticed (the menace) at the bottom. Funny, and I like your new avatar.

drawMonger-- there's already a movie called "X" (Sorry, I couldn't resist). I wanna see your picture, though :sad:

Dirj-- that's awesome! Nice composition, too

BAJAMAN--what's your movie called?

Garma--is that all from scratch? Very nice.

-Andy- Wow! How long did you spend on that? Great likeness.

conundrum-- your link just brings me to the Pic Server site, not to your picture.

Sagi-- heh, have you been in any other films I might have seen?

Xanthum Gum-- Buck up, little camper. Lots of people make bad films. Ever seen Ishtar?
Your pic has a sad look to it -- that's a good thing

roozelle--Not sure that I understand. Is she running with a pencil?

Nobody commented on mine :cry:

09 September 2004, 06:14 PM
Sagi_13 >>Even if its quick i like it a lot!
Xanthan Gum >>Nice! Personally i think u shouldnt use black so much(..just an advice:thumbsup:)
roozelle >>I love its simplicity!!well done!
Augustus >>Great work!
Andrewley >>Well i think you know my opinion about always!:beer:
ilikiesoup >>Love it!Are we going to watch this in theaters soon??lol
Octothreat >>AHAH..nice idea man!
Robinayles >>Nice concept!
mvp >>Funny!!
malcolmvexxed>>Great work
Drawmonger>> Red cross..:shrug:
Bajaman >>At first i didnt notice that it was a photo manipulation.Interesting!
Dirj >>WOW..great style!
Garma >>is that supposed to be Uma Thurman??...hahaha nice one!
The ton >>Can't stop laughing...Amazing!!

09 September 2004, 06:16 PM
Ilikesoup: actually i don't know how much it took but i can just tell you that I spent a lot of time there!:)

09 September 2004, 07:13 PM
roozelle--Not sure that I understand. Is she running with a pencil?
I guess my movie poster is a bit obscure. Since nobody seems to know what it is - I guess that makes me even more obscure than my poster reference.

'Funny Girl' is a broadway musical that was turned into a movie (both in the 1960's, both staring Barbara Streisand.)

I based my poster off the marketing design of the movie. I made changes - which included the addition of a pencil (because I like to draw.) So, no - she isn't running with a pencil.

09 September 2004, 07:21 PM
The Ton - hehehe, great!:thumbsup: :wip:

Ilikesoup - about the lack of comments on yours... your picture is well done, I started commenting everybody but got tired soon, normally I can't think a different comment for each one, it's like "great, awesome, amazing, well done, love it..." and when I have already used this ones, I run out of words, I dont like repeating...:blush:

robin - it's "the ugliest"... don't ask me why, it's like asking me why did I chose a foot...:shrug:

roozelle - I've never heard about that movie before, I've just searched it in internet, you had a good idea

09 September 2004, 08:07 PM

I get it! You're the Funny Girl (you are the funny girl, aren't you?:curious: ) and you're funny 'cuz:
You draw funny pictures
You're upside down

I know the film and the musical, but wondered where Barbara Streisand got the pencil and who tripped her. Now it makes perfect sense (I hope).

El mas feo-- No worries, didn't mean to make anybody defensive. I feel like a heel (get it?).

09 September 2004, 08:36 PM
Excellent work people, not too many replies but all good.

A special shout out to The Ton and Garma - very funny.

By the Goro mincing at anyone else in The Tons picture??

09 September 2004, 09:00 PM
ilikesoup - uh oh...I feel the gauntlet has been thrown!

The Ton - MOST EXCELLENT! Great idea and very well done!

There was no bad work on this thread at all - great work everyone!:thumbsup:

09 September 2004, 10:51 PM
thanks for the nice comments guys.. indeed it's done completely from scratch, with the orgininal as a ref, of course :)

Edit: the Ton, rofl! Saw the original yesterday.

09 September 2004, 11:26 PM
Hahaha dope pic by The ton. I love how the backgrounds has that pop art style.

09 September 2004, 11:32 PM
Well this would definately be MY movie... hope it doesn't suck when it finally comes out :curious:
Imagine a live-action Transformers movie directed by Steven Spielberg...

Painter, Phshop, worked on it off and on, couple of hours.

The Ton: that is very funny :applause:

Good job everyone! Yeah,yeah you too andrewley (that poster should bring back the kids to church :) )

09 September 2004, 01:10 AM
directed by Steven Spielberg...
Oooh, rather not, thank you very much. Now directed by anyone else, so they didn't make the robots cry at the end...

Great pic BTW! lurve it!

But the winner this week (so far) definately has to be the Ton! Gotta love that! So by my position, I'm guessing I'm Brad Pitt! I can live with that!!

And I think Goro's wincing at Oritz, by my guess. Does he smell?

09 September 2004, 02:43 AM
HAHAHA....hey, The Ton, that's very cute, thank you! Kinda took my by surprise to find me up there....very funny!

09 September 2004, 02:58 AM
>> Red cross..:shrug:

When my producers heard that I'd leaked an image from the movie they went ballistic and pulled the plug from my server...

fixed now.

09 September 2004, 04:40 AM
Oh, a little late....anyway, felt like making one....

20min/photoshop CS

09 September 2004, 05:21 AM
Hey Taron, that's wicked!! A real sense of mood and energy. You really are one of the stars of the group :buttrock:

09 September 2004, 06:03 AM
Wow! Thanx a lot, Drawmonger! I'm learning a lot from the stars here, that's for sure!
I kind of take this as a great welcome message from you! :beer:

09 September 2004, 08:16 AM
Oooh, rather not, thank you very much. Now directed by anyone else, so they didn't make the robots cry at the end... :D

That's exactly what I thought when I heard the rumor that Spielberg wanted to make the movie... :cry:

Glad you lurve it mate!

Taron: great drama, beautiful colors and mood.
(scene reminds me of the avatar fights... you crawling back after a beating...)

09 September 2004, 09:08 AM
BAJAMAN--what's your movie called? Hmmm, never gave that a thought, you know. One of my nicknames is Darth Lowen. I had an entire story behind that name, something like:

"Darth Lowen, son of Karaguin, heir to Mardogath"


Nobody commented on mine :cry: Awww, well, it's really very nice! :rolleyes:

09 September 2004, 10:46 AM
Cheers everyone for da praise!! Glad y'all like it!

We aim to please.... :)

Dargon, I thought I'd put you in the Pitt spot seeing as you helped with the whole hosting thang! Cheers dude!

Taron, I think your place in the stars is well deserved after that pic! Nice one!

Everyone else who commented, ta very much... I feel like I'm.....sniff......part of now...sob......!!


09 September 2004, 10:57 AM
Wow,another masterpiece taron, congratulations!!Love the colors btw.

09 September 2004, 12:50 PM
Everyone else who commented, ta very much... I feel like I'm.....sniff......part of now...sob......!!
haha.. I'm sorry but not after you are baptised first. Let me crush a bottle of paint on your head now.. :twisted:

09 September 2004, 02:52 PM
ilikesoup - I'm sorry that nobody commented on's your official comment....

I like the tribute to Berke Breathed. Very true to the idea that Hollywood is in a rut. As for Berke Breathed and the Opus cartoon, all I can say is that Brethed USED to be funny.

09 September 2004, 04:48 PM
As for Berke Breathed and the Opus cartoon, all I can say is that Brethed USED to be funny.
Too true! He used to be wonderfully silly, and his political/cultural satires were so dead-on accurate IMO. Now he's just a big meanie with little in the way of humor. Did he go through a bitter divorce? alien abduction? I'd pay good money to find out, because Bloom County WAS one of my all time favorites.

09 September 2004, 06:40 PM
yep me too - I even have 2 Opus stuffed dolls, one where he's wearing a bath towel and shower cap and the other where he has antlers with christmas balls hanging from them.

10 October 2004, 04:17 PM

10 October 2004, 04:56 PM
wow, that's really cool, jeroentje. i like your clean style. what a pity that your postings are a quite rarity...:) keep on sketching!

with kind regards

10 October 2004, 12:35 PM
well I dont know what to say all of these are really good, I'm still learning to do 3D.:shrug:

You're kidding me, aren't you? Or else I sure hope that's a typo.

10 October 2004, 03:11 PM
You're kidding me, aren't you? Or else I sure hope that's a typo.
sorry not kidding, well i am only on GCSE's at school.

10 October 2004, 05:47 PM
not the best art i've seen but funny.. haha or some :D..

10 October 2004, 08:57 PM
This is some golden shit

10 October 2004, 05:53 PM
This is some golden shitThats an odd way to explain what you think of something I'm sure.

10 October 2004, 09:08 AM
very good! I like you.
