OK ... Rebecca threw me the gauntlet and smacked me in the face really hard. Ouch!

I don't need 2 weeks unless I want to add a background to this.
BRING IT ON REBECCA! WOOOOOOOT!!





Photoshop: 4 hours (maybe a bit longer ... lost track of time)
I started this with a quick gesture drawing I did in PS with the default charcoal flat brush. Then cleaned up my line drawing using a standard round brush. From there it was just paint, paint, paint. The shirt is actually a blown up photo of some guy's ugly shirt that I found on the net. I painted over this layer to add shadows that fit my character rather than the dorky guy in the pic that I used.

Eventually I dumped the line layer after I had all the colors down. Flipped the whole thing because it just looked better this way. Finally, because I kept the character's skin on a seperate layer I was able to easily desaturate him when I was done. Tada!

hahah... nice one Kurt.... I like the poem. Is it the polynesian polyester that's making him so angry?

A little girl i once knew asked me "if everything used to be black and white in the olden days?". She'd watched some black and white films and it had confused her!

What could be meaner than burning a little girl's doll?

Great work everyone so far!!

Kirt,

I have a six pack now from laughing so hard. Thank you.

Ah, it is good indeed to know that there are others out in there in the digital community with a similarly twisted framework of mind. Rock on, my slightly off-kilter brother!

BTW:

Desaturated Grandpa Haiku
Like ripples outward
the sky
the lake
Nothingness
A pear
Bears!

paperclip,

At last! She emerges from the shadows! This piece rocks! Oh, I am having a most excellent morning. It is good to wake up to such cool dysfunctional funness! Desaturated Grandpas, Bonfire of the Dolls, oh my!

If you offer them a chance to express dysfunction...they will come... Thanks for joining the party, paperclip!

duddlebug,

Indeed it is fun to mess with little kids. J/K

Excellentage. This is going to be a good couple of weeks.

Kirt ~ I see your Desaturated Grandpa and I raise you *er, haven't thought of it yet*.

Ok, bye.
