*freaking out* Is it wrong that I just LOVE that Paddington was included there!
That is one of the most amazing things I have ever seen! How do you do it?
... Considering some of the other images within the picture... perhaps it's only wrong that you NOTICED Paddington was in there. YOWZAH
*Strongly considers asking my trusted sources for a descript of this awesomeness at some point. Meh, Dave'll tell us later. *Shrugs. *Leaves thread.
I could have spent hours looking t this and I have a stiff neck from spending the amount of time I did looking at it.
We are verysimilar people.
Here are a list of what I found to be oddities but tht I totally agree with you on:
1. Empire Records
2. Jenna Jameson
3. Eureeka's Castle
4. Danger Mouse
6. Flight of the Navigator
7. Today's Special
8. Alton Brown
I think we are the same person. God just gave you the creativity.
It's a photo montage of... well, everything!
I admit, there are a LOT of things in there that I'd expect people to cringe at or dislike, but these are MY favorite thing.
So, here are a few fun facts about the piece:
• Elvis Presley, Liv Tyler, and Sean Connery are the only figures to appear twice. This is intentional.
• The size, prominence, or placement of characters has no intentional relationship to favoritism, with the exception of Jim Henson who is the largest figure (proportionally that is, Cinderella's Castle notwithstanding), and appears at the top center, presiding over everything else.
• Jesus Christ is also intentionally larger then most figures.
• With the key exception of Jim Henson, every figure was placed randomly throughout. However, Walt Disney was purposely placed next to Abraham Lincoln, as Abe was Walt's hero and favorite president.
• Two years in the making.
• There are 35 Nintendo Entertainment System games peppered throughout.
• There are 9 Smurfs peppered throughout.
• Sweetums is at the perfect center of the piece.
• Kermit was the very first figure placed.
• The Beatles were the very last.
• Out of all the figures, Chewbacca was the most time consuming to "mask".
• The artwork of King Hippo is my own piece.
• While I have no idea how many individual figures there actually are in the piece, the Photoshop file is comprised of over 450 layers, closer to 500 in actuality.
I've gotta say, Dave my man, you're really making me want to do one of these for myself. If only I had Photoshop...
Yeah... This kind of artwork is something everyone should try at some time. Cramming so many favorite/famous personages into a massive crowd cene. The only others that I fondly cherish are your own MFG piece and the Muppet monster/vampire/ghost/grouch Halloween piece from Palisades' forums that got shown on TP recently.
I want one of my own as wel but I do not have the skill. I can make list and pay you. Let me know. J/K... Unless you want to do it.
Hey guys... Thought I'd share a vonderful piece done by our artiste extraordinaire, Vic Romano.
Hope it's okay to post it here, have a good day.
Glad this was posted, thanks, Ed!
I can't say exactly what and when, but be prepared for a blitz of stuff coming really soon.
I was just going to ask that question.
Great piece with the Count Dave! And I'm looking forward to this blitz of things to come! I miss your work!
I looooooove that picture of The Count. It's so gorgeous and the pose is just delightful. Amazing job with that one, Dave!
I, too, can't wait for the blitz! Even though I sort of already know what's coming. I'll be in touch soon, man!
Please check out ToughPigs right now to see lots of new Muppet art!
I've said it before, and I'll say it again, man... Epic. Amazing. GORGEOUS. Every piece in there is just SO beautiful... I absolutely love it. Inspirational and That My Kinda Woman especially (for two totally and completely different reasons). I am also absolutely fawning over that gorgeous Dr. Teeth. I want a hat with that on it!
Keep up the AMAZING work, Dave!
Make sure you all listen to, and look at the Muppet Cast's new episode coming out next week! The blitz continues!
So... I was over at TP, and I started drooling over that AMAZING picture of Sweetums, Robin, Rizzo, and Pepe... which, by the way, is officially going to be the background of my computer at somepoint in the near future... And I saw, in the background, out of focus, Thog.
And you, sir, are a genius.
Bloody awesome stuff Dave - I could genuinely your illustrations adorning Muppet merchandise. LOVE IT!
Dave - as always you blow me away and I'm so excited your art is now on TP as well as here. I am not even sure which one is my favorite of the ones they posted - they are all terrific! Looking forward to what else you may have coming down the line!
