Nope, still no GIMP work as yet.
I downloaded it to my computer, and maybe 'cause my machine's an aged clunker, or some registry issues -- or maybe I just didn't load the proper version and runtime -- it hangs when I try to use it.
So, it's still coloured pencils and brush pens for the nonce. And I found fluorescent colours scan REEAL bad.
Warning: Puns ahead!
Here's the dialogue for the picture:
The Dread Colonel KLANK: So...if it isn't Ms PRISTICENE, come to stop me!
(Can't help it. The minute I saw the Princess's latest character and her name, I saw that oh-so-punny taunt, and KNEW it had to be used.)
Pris: That's Pris PUTTY, you mecha-JACKASS!
The good Colonel (and you can see he's a colonel, he's got his rank insignia right there on his chest) was inspired by a number of things.
2) Doga the Invicible and his henchman Darkstar from those animated Heinz UFO's (aka Space Spaghetti-O's) commercials I remember from when I was a kid. Hey, when you were five, Doga was *badass*.
3) Although, having just watched Heavy Metal (the original) after goodness knows how long, I also hear him speaking in the voice of the Loc-Nar.
Pris Putty is copyright Princess Loonia, and her recent depiction was drawn by Kidd-P.
(For those who might not know -- and there COULD be a few PLASticene is a claylike modelling product I played with as a kid, (but could very well have predated my knowledge of it). Hence the awful pun.)
