Mad Open canvas Stuff

An englishman, irishman and scotsman open up Opencanvas.

The irishman asks: "Where's the toolbar?"

Cool! Stuff like this is really fun. I got an idea: why don't we open a open SECTION topic and get together in groups to post some of our sessions there, it will be an experience, don't you think?

Snailisa look awfully happy for a creature that will end in the bouillabaise together with the veggies... or maybe her snail-ness makes her even more of a vegetarian and she looks upon the giant vegs as her friends?
Anyway, nice and confusing  ;D
But what's that thing connected to Snailisa's "ear" that looks like something unmentionable?

Close Rich.

The vampire watermelon (that looks like a gherkin) was started and coloured by me and shaded by Pat and Graham. Pat did the hat, referencing Alucard from Hellsing, and Graham managed the pot and carrot. I did both the anime girls - angel girl wasn't going to be an angel, but graham drew a halo and forced my hand.

Pat did all of snail Lisa apart from the gun and the headpieces, which were by Graham.

Finally, Graham did the star wars scene.

Basically, this is a wings pic - snail wing, vampire wing, angel wing and X-wing.

It was so much easier to blame it on Them. It was bleakly depressing to think that They were Us. If it was Them, then nothing was anyone’s fault. If it was Us, what did that make Me? After all, I’m one of Us. I must be. I’ve certainly never thought of myself as one of Them. No one ever thinks of themselves as one of Them. We’re always one of Us. It’s Them that do bad things. - Jingo, Terry Pratchett

Vampire Watermelon mayhem in angel's kitchen! Empire and Rebels join forces with winged heavy weapon snail Lisa (8 )!

I had the privilege to be present at the making of this chaos drawing... all right, so I wasn't actually looking, I was studying Latin poetry in the room next door. But I could almost taste the creative juices flowing.

My guesses for the artists were largely correct: Steve for the Vampire Watermelon and animé girls, Pat for Snail!Lisa, Graham for the X-Wing and TIE Fighter. (I saw Graham drawing the gun, so that doesn't count.) Couldn't guess who did the cookpot and carrot, but when I found out it was Graham I wasn't hugely surprised.

Are you really gonna take it like that?
Riding on the missile with a cowboy hat?

Oh, well the world is gonna end
So dance around the fire that we once believed in
Oh, wanna tear it down again, now
'Cause there's nothing left for us to bleed
Give it up, the sons of anarchy
So come around and have another round on me!

DANCE, F***ER, DANCE, LET THE MOTHERF***ER BURN!

You mean, this was a team effort? It took three well renowned super-talented artists to make this piece of work? Must have been one slow weekend.

Oh, and I second Tommy's concern about the phallic object. Maybe it should be edited out or pixelated or something.

Wouldn't pixelating it be an admission that it's actually phallic and not, as I've already pointed out, just your gutterminds seeing what isn't there? :P

So, what you mean to tell us is that it's supposed to be subliminal? ;)
