The Bunny Elf

Bunny Elf: "What are you looking at?"

Sorry, my scanner is giving me troubles so had to take a pic of it. Damn my scanner. Oh, well. It's inspired by Haruhi for those who know and if you don't then you can look it up on google. Later.

New Topic is a bit Elfish...

Since OmegaEye won the tie breaker, he decided that this week's topic will focus on ELVES.

There's all different kinds of elves: warriors, kings, regular folk, Santa's elves... whatever.

OmegaEye does specify that you can only draw original elves. Characters like Link or guys from Lord of the Rings do not count. You can use them as references, but you cannot draw them as your entry. Elves of your own design only!!! Also, do not draw gnomes, trolls, imps or leprechauns, they don't count as elves.

The due date for this topic will be Wednesday (July 30th) at Midnight!

Damn... Another Tie

Well, the votes are in & we're stuck in another tie (God, I hate it when this happens...). This time, it's between ~Em & OmegaEye. We gotta break this thing somehow, right? Right!

OK, I shall ask a trivia question & whoever answers it correctly first will choose the next topic. Remember this question is for ~Em & OmegaEye only!

*This'll be an "open-book" question: you are allowed to use the Internet to find the answers. I'm not a teacher, so I don't care where you get the answers from, as long as you answer them correctly. You've got one chance to answer, if you answer incorrectly you lose your turn & the other has their chance to answer.*

Here's the question:

List all 9 planets in our solar system from largest to smallest (Pluto included!)

You two have only 24 hours to answer the question. If neither of you answer correctly or answer at all, then the next topic shall be chosen randomly. & make sure to think of a good topic for next week when you answer so I don't have to wait for you guys to think of one afterwards. Good luck!

My Carlin-esque Faddah Time?
Cheshire's ivy-covered Mother Nature?

Mother Nature Entity

I originally drew this on paper and scanned but as I started to clean it up, I decided to completely retrace it and redraw some parts (hands, eyes, nose, lips, hair). If I had drawn the Earth on top I don't think I would have finish it in time (just consider it an extra, and it's a cool pic of Earth too).
Oh, and she's laying down and holding the Earth up. I guess you can flip around as well.

The Young Father Time

This is my much much younger father time. I drew him young because I figured if he was the 'Master of Time' that he could control how he ages. I messed up coloring him with colored pencils so if u want to see him colored go to my blog. I think the link is on the right some where.

Mother Nature, Father Time and their baby

I only have 4 words to say to this.... SON OF A BITCH!
The color came out so wrong in the scanner... rrrrggggg what ever here is my entry...
It is Mother nature, Father time and their Baby boy.
As far As I read.. mother nature and father time are married.
So I think it made more than common sence to say that they have a baby together... because father time passes on his job to a baby boy on January 1st....
But he cant just asexually reproduce and make a boy... he must mate with his "wife". Thats how science works....
But not so happy since the color is off. X(

Mother Nature

My interpretation of what Mother Nature might be like...tried to make her blend as part of the willow tree. Everything was drawn out at work, each individual ivy leaf and all. I would have colored it in the blends that I had planned, but that would never have photographed well. lol

'Faddah' Time

Here's my interpretation of Father Time. Apparently, he's late for the early-bird dinner special at Howard Johnson's.

You know.... when you look at him closely, he looks kinda like a cross between Willie Nelson & George Carlin.

'Time' for our Next Topic!

The votes are in, & Cheshire wins this week! Congrats to her & ~Em for their great entries!

Cheshire's topic will be a fun one... for this week the topic is to draw your own interpretation of Mother Nature or Father Time. Adding a background is completely up to you, but I'd suggest you guys should just draw the character alone so all attention is drawn to him/her & not what's behind them.

Due date will be Saturday, July 19th @ Midnight.

Cut!... Print!... Vote!

OK, three great entries this week! Although the topic details did come off as confusing to some, I hope we'll be able to come back & do a topic somewhat like this one in the future. But I digress, 'cause it's time to vote!:

Will it be ~Em's entry with Mickey Mouse?
How about my"'Night on Bald Mountain' from Fantasia" entry?
& last (but not least), Cheshire's Lord of the Rings comic entry?

The polls will be closed Monday afternoon @ 5 o'clock PM!

Lord of the Rings: What Really Happened

I'm fairly certain only fellow "Tolkein Nerds" would really get this one, but, I took the scene from Lord of the Rings: Return of the Kings, where Frodo is leaving the Shire with Gandolf and them so that he can travel with the Elves. Now, in the movie they were all there as a group as if planned like that. In the happened very differently. Frodo was trying to sneak off like in the "Fellowship of the Ring" without the other three knowing. Instead of them Eavesdropping...this time Gandolf is the one to tip off the other hobbits of Frodo's departure so that they can say goodbye. Bringing back the classic stick-figure comics XD

"Night on Chicken Mountain"

Since Fantasia is my all-time favorite film, it was quite a treat to actually drawn upon it after such a long time.

At first I didn't know what scene to do.... the Chinese Mushroom dance from the Nutcracker Suite?.... Mickey conducting the stars in The Sorcerer's Apprentice?..... Ben Ali Gator swooning over Hyacinth Hippo from the Dance of the Hours?..... what could I possibly do?

I finally decided on the one sequence I've never considered drawing from before... probably one of (if not the) most frightening scenes in all Disney film history: the Night on Bald Mountain sequence! I substituted Chernabog with Cannibal Chicken & two spirits with Steve-O & Randy just to make things a bit less scary.

EM-innie and Mickey Mouse

I couldnt think of ANYTHING! AT ALL!
My favorite movie was Across the Universe... but I couldnt think of anything.
So .. my second favorite is ANY DISNEY MOVIE!
and who is Disney's icon? MICKEY MOUSE!
I know I am not wearing my glasses in this picture... but it still looks like me. And who wears their glasses on a date?? (except if you really really need them)
so I drew me as Minnie mouse and I am going on a date with Mickey mouse!
also more of this stuff will be on my blog....

Guess what...

I win! Big whoop....

Anyway, it's time to choose the next topic.... uhhhh.....lemme see.....uuuuuuuuhhhhhhhh-OH!.... how 'bout Cereal Mascots!, we haven't done that one ye-... oh wait, we did do that already, didn't we?...... damn it......

OOH! I GOT IT! (This'll be a goodie!) For this week's topic, the assignment is to draw a screengrab from a scene from your favorite (or one of your favorite) movies. For this, you should try to draw it as close to the original image as you can, but don't completely copy the image as if you were tracing it! Add your own style or flair to it, make it as if it were your own! If you have any of your own characters, substitute them with the actual actors if you wish! It's all up to you, as long as you have fun with it!

Due date for this week is Saturday Night @ 12 Midnight!

Sold Out! Time to Vote!

I hope you all had a great Fourth of July! Although it's been a pretty slow week because of the holiday, it's still has been a decent turnout. Now who do you think should win this week's Toon Platoon?

1) Dumbo + Rambo I = ''Dumbo: First Blood'' (Michael J. Ruocco)
2) Saving Private Ryan + Romeo & Juliet = ''Saving Private Romeo & Juliet'' (~Em)

Polls shall be closed Monday @ 4PM

Saving Private Romeo and Juliet

This is the tragic tale of 2 lovers only wanting to be with each other.
Tom Hanks as Romeo gets called to war which will seperate them even more than being either a Capulet or Montegue.
Will Juliet kill herself when not with her fair Romeo? Will Romeo die in war? I SURE HOPE SO!
Call me crazy but this sounds like it could be a real movie LOL.

"When I See an Elephant Kill"

What do you get when you cross a baby elephant with big ears with guerrilla warfare in Vietnam?

Yes, I'm sick that way...

Tuesday, July 1, 2008

Glad THAT'S over with.... back to our regularly scheduled programming...

The idea for out next topic came to be during a conversation I had with Cheshire & GuitarMonster a few weeks ago. I thought "What would happen if you combined two totally different movies into one, for example: if you combined A with B, what would you end up with?...". Well, we ran with the idea for a good 10-15 minutes & decided that it would make a great topic someday. Well, today's the day!

So this week, you have to create a movie poster/screenshot based on a combination of 2 totally different movies of your choice.

Due date is Saturday, July 5th @ Midnight!

No..... NO!....... IT CANNOT BE!!!....

Sadly, it is...... we've got a THREE WAY TIE this week! & you know what that means..... TIME TO BREAK IT!

Although it is a three way tie, ~Em is a away on a brief vacation & won't be availiable to participate. So technically, the tie is only against GuitarMonster1994 & myself. Here's what we're gonna do:

Another member shall ask a random trivia question & whomever answers it correctly first wins!Since Cheshire isn't in the tie, I think it would be appropriate that she asks the big question! Cheshire, you may post your question in the comments of this post & we'll answer it there.

*This'll be an "open-book" question: you are allowed to use the internet to find the answers. I'm not a teacher, so I don't care where you get the answers from, as long as you answer them correctly. You've got one chance to answer, if you answer incorrectly you lose your turn & the other has their chance to answer.*
