The first in another irregular series based on my South Parkesque versions of the Endless characters. I have submitted a couple of pics before. If you don’t get the jokes in the thought bubbles, you haven’t watched Bill’n’Ted’s Bogus Journey enough….
I loved this pic immediately I saw it in the DCG gallery and couldn’t stop myself having a go at giving it a simple coloring. This is a gift for Strangefish (who was kind enough to let me do a colored version) and also for Lady D (whom the original was gifted too) 😛 First thing I did after downloading the pic was promote it to a new layer set to multiply. I then added a new layer below this for the coloring. Using the lassoo tool to select the outline various areas to be colored, I built up the color starting with darkest shade first, moving inward with lighter and lighter shades. Before deselecting each area, I applied a small gaussian blur to soften the color changes.
Well i thad to happen didn’t it. Death & Dream visit the small mountain village of South Park. Death meets Kenny, who she thinks is kinda cool. But the course of true love seldom runs smoothly, and when they hold hands the inevitable happens. The rest of the story is pretty obvious. We have Death (with Kenny), Dream, Kyle, Stan and of course Wendy. I used the page applet to get the basics done, then tweaked and added stuff in PSP. Brought them altogether at the bust stop (which i extended a bit). I think the dialogue works well;) Info: Ryanarya posted this link to a page where you can create your own characters in the South Park style: http://www.comedycentral.com/southparkgames/character/
Ryanarya posted the link at the bottom in the no topic thread to a page where you can create your own characters in the South Park style. We had a big influx of pics of our very own artists done in this style. And I got a wee bit of inspiration. Thanks Ryanarya. Here we have The Endless (L-R Destruction, Delirium, Despair, Dream, Death, Desire, Destiny) This was a lot of fun to do. I used the page applet to get the basics done, then tweaked and added stuff in PSP. Brought them altogether on a nice hill under the stars. Hope you all like them.
Well, here is Rachel Leigh Cook as Death. The base pic was such a godsend, all i had to do to her was replace her red shorts. the whole layer was then desaturated to give her a deathly flesh tone. the lips were darkened using a red layer. the eye makeup was done using a vector layer set on multiply. i the ankh was drawn using the vector tool, then metalized using a filter. additional reflections of arms and pumpkin added manually. the pumpkin was one i found on the net, with the eyes and mouth added by hand and dodged to give a glowing effect. i added the shadow on her arm, and a faint orange glow on her arms from the pumpkin. the background was part of a larger pic i had, enlarged and smoothed to give a suitable moody feel. the text is Spirits of the Dead by Edgar Allan Poe.
