Tom and Crowe’s Un-Excellent Adventure – 9
The Saga Continues… (triple feature!)
Inspired by Dr. Who and MSTK-3000
When we last left the team, it looked like Tom and Crowe were safe aboard the Tardis (someone’s Tardis… ) and that Gypsy was about to get them home. But no such luck! Crowe T. Robot messed with the controls and now they’ve gone careening through the Vortex on a mad trip to – - – who knows where or when? Zounds! Will they ever see the Satellite of Love again?
An experiment in comic-book art:
Panel #1 is from yesterday’s post turned into to a colored sketch. There are “Actions” to do this but I no longer have them on my desktop so I used the Cut-Out filter in CS2.
For Panel #2 I used a photo of my model Tardis, placed Tom Servo in the window (again, from a photo of my mini-fig) and placed it in a custom background taken from another project which I did in CS2 some time ago. You can barely see him, but he’s there! lol
Panel #3 is from a photo of the two figures which which I took in front of my monitor with a space-scape on the screen I also did in CS2 some time ago (here)
I converted the photo to a drawing using poster-effects.
This series started out with snapshots of my figures but then evolved into a series of experiments in Photoshop. It’s purely for fun – none are for sale – but somehow, when I’m “only having fun” there’s a tendency to be more creative – try new things, new methods, more than I might otherwise. WHY that is, who knows… It really is a lot of fun! And because I have so many images to use, it’s not as time-consuming as it probably seems. No idea really, where I’m going yet with this (I confess, the story wasn’t planned so the characters are “winging it”)! ~ but we will see. Stay tuned for more: hope you’re having fun with it as well! :))
Tom’s Dramatic Moment (closer view)
Fine, then – Crowe insisted on a close-up too!
(The “Cut Out” effect isn’t perfect but I think with some clean-up and manipulation it would work for converting photos into digital drawings pretty well – maybe I will try some more)
