Having thus been motivated and inspired by all the other cool entries at Seventh Sanctum, here's another entry.
Taken from the Grimoire of Questionable Spells ~Cosmic Incantation of Crossdressing~
...this could be very addictive...
Reading top left to bottom right:
George W. Bush - empty headed neo-con media prop that has yet to succeed at any of the several opportunities given him; he's never actually earned an opportunity...
Condoleeza Rice - least rich member of the Bush administration; she has an oil tanker named after her, yet she claims there is no conflict of interest; and she claims that a document written before 9/11 called: bin Laden to attack the US, meant nothing...
Dick Cheney - he has a constant snarl, and a bad habit of repeating debunked facts in order to scare the public shitless over terrorism - which should seem ironic given that he was one of the people to declare that we wouldn't allow the terrorists to cause us to live in fear...
Donald Rumsfeld - he supports the troops... with rhetoric... instead of the armor they need; our armies are stretched to the breaking point thanks to his incompetence and lack of planning, but don't worry, when we invade Iran, it looks like will have a policy in place to just use nukes instead of soldiers...
Bill O'Reilly - pompous media blowhard that claims to be a journalist; he tries to make his point, except he lies a lot, which makes his points - pointless; if you catch him lying, then that makes you evil for some reason...
Jimmy Falwell - he claims to be a religious leader, but he wishes all kinds of harm to people he doesn't like, as if God was his personal weapon; he claims that every hurricane that hits the American coast is there to wipe out homosexuals, except that a hurricane hit his own head-quarters too...
Karl Rove - he's a liar, a rumor creator, a media manipulator, and a traitor to the American nation, so of course, he's George Bush's right hand man...
Rush Limbaugh - he screams about how poor people shouldn't get help, how much of a patriot he is, how drug offenders should be punished most severely, and how privacy is only for criminals; he's taken federal handouts himself, avoided serving in Vietnam due to an 'anal cyst', was caught abusing drugs, and now wants his privacy protected from law enforcement...
Roberto Gonzalez - he's protected Bush from serving time for every illegal thing he's ever done, and now he heads the US Justice Department; though we are knee deep in two wars, terrorism, corporate fraud, and natural disasters - his main priorities are fighting 'obscenity', and fighting a federal judge that ruled the word 'God' is unconstitutional in the US pledge of alligence since you shouldn't have to be a Christian to be an American - I guess Roberto disagrees...
This is an entry for Seventh Sanctum's 'Silly Season' contest. Based on a character tossed out from the 'Humorous Fantasy Class'...a bartender/warlock...(I'd probably toss him out, too). He's the kind you might find in one of the darker inns, the kind who leers and invites you to 'come in and sit down for a spell...'
This was done for DragonScholar's lates contest found here ---> [link]
I like the color halftone flat colors on this, because I like the old school comic book feel it gives. Though I may come back and color it the way I normally would tomoror night. I'm not sure. Anyway enjoy.
Oh...yeah I used the Silly Super Hero Name Generator and got Brothers Bureaucratic.
I didn't want to post this until I had gotten the cards mailed out, but Kinko's won't have them done till tomorrow at six or so, and thus I will not be able to mail them till Monday, and thus they're going to be really, really late, I'm sure, and thus - what the hell, go ahead and have a look at what you'll be getting in the mail.
My character Vincent with Vincent
We've both been meaning to draw a pic of them and I just got it done first Shes working on hers too of course.
Both Vincents are along the same level of weirdness and we both figured they'd get along nicely Anyways, enjoy
*Im not sure if her Vincent has a last name or not so...yeah Mine doesnt really have a last name
I've been lurking around this one random generator site, Seventh Sanctum ( [link] ), for quite some time now and they hold contests every so often where basically the idea is that you have to use one of the generators and draw or write something based on your results from the generator. I've never entered one of the competitions before (mostly because I'm lazy), but the current one looked like fun so I decided to do something for it. This particular contest could probably be summed up simply as "draw a pretty person-thing" and since two entries per person are allowed I thought I might as well go with a gimick and put two in one (because, honestly, what makes one bishonen look prettier than another bishonen?).
Anyway, I ended up using results from the "Fangirl Fantasy Fufiller" generator which were as follows:
"This artist experiences gender confusion (but doesn't seem to suffer from it). His silky hair is the color of desert sand. His mysterious eyes are like two setting suns. When he speaks, he speaks each word dramatically and clearly."
"This teacher is cool and elegant. His scarlet eyes have a hyptonic quality you can't resist. His ash-gray hair is bound by a single black ribbon. He tends to speak in short sentances."
I'm still tweaking some things with it before I submit it, but for the most part it's done.
[EDIT] Ok, just uploaded the final version (well, at least I'm pretty sure it's the final version). I tweaked the colors and applied some filters and what-not to make it look a little better.
This is the final painting for my portfolio!
Yes yes, it is my “Forbidden City” layout, painted and tended to with INSANE amount of detail... well, insane for me that it!
Anyhow, props for working opaquely and applying the atmospheric-perspective-tonal-value rules! No computer effects were added to this one to dull out the background and contrast the foreground- that was done in the process of painting!
Dance! Dance and bask in they glory!
Anyhow, yah. So I love it. The scanner didn’t mess with the color this time, and the prints… oh dear god, the prints GLOW!
I'll probably add cartoon characters in the scene as well later on. It's odd to look at the layout and see the floor illuminated but no sources… that’s where the people come in. Gotta hand it to them layout painters… they good!
Anyhow, it’s time for me to clean up and put everything in order!
