What is that mean "Fairytaile Mashup" ?

10 October 2004, 03:50 PM
Take two or more fairytale characters and combine them (mash them up) to create a new character

10 October 2004, 04:03 PM
Oops, I took it as meaning 'take two fairytales and combine them'. Oh well :)

10 October 2004, 04:31 PM
ah yeah - thats probably more accurate

10 October 2004, 05:32 PM
PS + mouse. 1 hour 30.

10 October 2004, 07:53 PM
Boy I really should be working..

60 mins, Photoshop + Wacom
Had to look at a picture of a frog to see how the legs went.

10 October 2004, 08:04 PM
Crackdown, hehe, funny idea
Vitriolic, good work, both of them:thumbsup:

Here is mine,
15-20 min pencil on paper for the lines
45min OpenCanvas1.1 for the background
45min photoshop for coloring the dwarf and the shoe
it was an experiment, mixing both programs, and I'm quite happy with the result

edit: I forgot to say that I used reference for this one, an old disney book I found gathering dust

10 October 2004, 09:09 PM
PROUD GingerHood! One and a half hours in photoshop.

Great ones Vitriolic! I like especially like the expression on the frog :)
Made me laugh, Crackdown.
Elmasfeo, I like your oldskool-disney-style dwarf :)

10 October 2004, 11:17 PM
What a fun idea.
Ill/Photoshop about an hour
There are such talented people here!

10 October 2004, 11:47 PM
I wanted to stay a little more sketchier this time but that was harder than I thought. It's very hard to get things right without diving into details.

The carpet seems to "hang" in the air, I know, I also know what I did wrong its just that it's 2 P.M. here and I need to get sleep.

It's sort of unfinished. Hope some of you still like it.

10 October 2004, 01:52 AM
Photoshop CS w/ intros2 tablet for one hour.

Dopey dwarf (reference used for face) from snow white uses his oversized shirt to reach the bottom instead of that blonde girl with really long hair. :D Cant remember what that long blonde hair girl fairy tale is called... *shrugs* Enjoy! ;)

10 October 2004, 02:37 AM

How about, "Mirror, Mirror, on the wall..."

Here's mine - its hardly worthy to be in the same group with the rest of you talented people.
It is Billy Goat Gruff goes to the Gingerbread House from Hansel & Gretel.
1.5 hrs PS & Wacom

10 October 2004, 05:12 AM

(its alice in wonderland meets the sleeping beauty)

10 October 2004, 05:17 AM

About 20 minutes pencil sketch, 3.5 hours wacom & ps
No more "coloring" pencil sketches. Takes too darn long! Fun topic, though.

IO -- I like it! Great job on the cobblestones.

10 October 2004, 06:42 AM

You would not believe what is in that basket.

3hrs in PS7 (ouch)

Nice work everybody.

10 October 2004, 07:04 AM
Great topic! Some hilarous spins on familiar fairytale characters!
Here's mine: The Fairy God-Genie

15 min pencil sketch, 45 min scan + Photoshop.
I hate using the mouse to color...

Edit: Moved my drawing and now i've relinked it. Sorry about that!

10 October 2004, 08:43 AM
Stitch + Sebastian + Genie + Abu + Little Mermaid + Tinkerbell + Pinocchio

PS - a few hrs

Old mother hubbard finds a new use for the duck with golden eggs.
Far too long in photoshop, and yet not enough time...

Gemcap: brilliant idea! I can just hear him humming as he skips along...

10 October 2004, 09:10 AM
Hee hee, those last two cracked me up :D [edit: I was actually referring to Giant Red Riding Hood and the Fairy God-Genie, but the two that just got posted rock too :)] Great work everybody!

DreamMaster: Excellent colours, they set a very nice mood.

Garma: Great colour palette too, very 'arabian desert'. As for the carpet hanging in the air, maybe if you increased the effect of the wind it would give a stronger impression of motion.
(billowing cloak, leading edge of the carpet curling back, hat about to fall off, etc.) Still, it's a very effective image - wd!

10 October 2004, 11:42 AM
didn't manage to put as many references to different tales as i would have liked...

painter / 2hr30min

Edit: OK...maybe i don't have a life...but i've always wanted to draw the dwarf that laid the golden egg :) + 15mins

10 October 2004, 11:48 AM
the tortoise and the beanstalk...

might look like 10 mins but it took me 2 hours in painter :scream:

10 October 2004, 01:43 PM
It was Hellboy who saved RedRidingHood And Grandma...

Holy cow, this one was a lot of fun!!!

3h, Painter, reference Hellboy comic for outfit.

It's not really a meshup, but more like a meshup of two worlds.
That of the old and that of the new fairytail world...

(ok, my first idea was Hans as Gretel in front of the magic mirror :) )

10 October 2004, 02:14 PM
Mate that's badass! :beer:

10 October 2004, 02:35 PM
Excellent entries everyone! There continues to be so many great ones, it becomes almost impossible to pick a favorite sketch.

iamintricate - That is the most clever and very well done! I love the fairy dust in the air!
art2 - I'm not so sure that Hellboy is technically considered a Fairy Tale, but excellent work!
ilikesoup - I love the look and especially the cow jumping over the moon in the background!
drawmonger - WOW! Really nice sketch - especially like the dwarf that laid the golden egg! :)
lightfreeze - go easier on yourself, Painter takes a while to learn
mahir - love the Fairy God Genie...and boy does he look angry!
gemcap - beautiful work! I bet the wolf doesn't give HIM a hard time!
IO - really good sketch, as for crits, her body looks a little flat, could use more form, the rabbit's nose is too flat, but other than that, REALLY nice work!
dreammaster, really nice work, Dopey is my favorite dwarf!
unraveled - that duck looks really scared!

sorry if I missed anyone.

10 October 2004, 02:43 PM
robin: you're probably right, but you could see it as a form of modern fairytail... :D
ok ok, I had this idea of Hellboy wacking the big bad wolf (I thought that would be cool, hehe)
vitriolic: :beer:

10 October 2004, 05:00 PM
art2 - is that the noob-eating wolf i see?

10 October 2004, 09:23 PM
What's a noob-eating wolf?... sorry, my understanding of some english words is sometimes a bit flawed :)

I know a noodle-eating wolf, speaks damn good japanese as well :D

edit: Do you mean a wolf that eats newbys?... in that case I consider it a great compliment
(I think... 'cos I still consider myself a major newby... ack! he'll be eating me then!)

10 October 2004, 11:14 PM
Thanks for the feedback Robin, unraveled, vitriolic, its amazing how much a few positive comments help the struggle

in that vein:

Sampo, I really liked the style of your GingerHood

Art2, very nice look on the hellboy/wolf combo

Vitriolic, really liked both, the emperor for the laugh and the frog for the clean execution

obviously there are more that deserve comment, but those particularly caught my eye.

10 October 2004, 03:52 AM
hi, this is my first daily sketch.
photoshop, wacom. about 40 mins.

10 October 2004, 04:16 AM
art2 - oh, i thought you were the guy that did this:

i guess not though. the resemblance between your wolf and the noob-eating wolf is uncanny, however.

10 October 2004, 08:22 AM
:scream: I'm first to admid that my wolf design is not that original... it's pretty straight forward
(except for the red head-gear :) ) , done by many people.
Now I come think of it: Hellboy, the Wolfs of Saint August. Just reread that story a while
back and maybe Mignola's wolf stayed in my unconsious... as the big bad wolf.

Hope you liked it anyway.

10 October 2004, 09:31 PM
Hahaha great work guys!!! You really amuse me:)

10 October 2004, 12:49 AM
This is not late.. cause I made it on thursday really, but here it is..
Oh sorry. photoshop and mouse, used refernce,... hm 30 -45minutes?
