The Futurama Cast Picture Progress Thread

Post by Kif White » Wed Jul 05, 2006 12:14 am

Hi all. :)

I mentioned in chat a few days ago that I was beginning to work on a Futurama cast picture, somewhat like that large 360-odd character poster of The Simpsons cast from the first 8 and a half seasons. Since it's a huge project that will probably take a while (probably more than a year in fact) I thought rather than just release it when it's done, I could post the progress over time for all to see how it's shaping up. I'll try to update each week, assuming there's a decent amount of characters added that is. Anyway, here's how things are so far  :)

Seymour! Hedonism-bot! Hermes! And A Cast Of Thousands!

Excellent (and extremely random) cast so far. I'm particularly happy to see Angleyne and the Were-Car, for some reason.

Very on-model. If I have a nitpick, it's that Seymour's ears are quite small. Looking at framegrabs from the episode, they should reach a bit further down the sides of his head. That aside, good luck with the project! It's going to be pretty awesome.

It was nice to know ya
We've all been damned!
C'mon!

Great work so far. Don't forget to add Blinky, he actually did appear in one episode.

Very nice! I liked Craterface, because any show that does a "De la Terre à la Lune" parody is something special. And Robot 1-X, as you well know, just happens to be one of my favourite one-time characters.

Technically still good, but if I can make a constructive comment, I think 1-X should be floating above "ground level". He did that on the show most of the time anyway, and besides, that might fill up a bit of the blank space over the Were-Car.

EDIT: But then, there'll be more layers anyway, so I should have thought about that.

Thats going to be a lot of work. That could make for a fantastic wallpaper or something of the like.

Take your time, its a lot of characters but it should be fun. I'm surprised no one's done this yet.

Updated the file again this week with the following change...
  • Moved Robot 1-X to a better position, hovering higher up instead of being rather low to the "ground" (as Chris suggested).
And the following characters have been added...
  • The Troubled Badger (in Robot 1-X's old spot)
  • The Grand Midwife
  • Betsy the Buggalo
  • The President of the Network
  • Human Friend
  • C3P0
  • The Basketball Court Owner (from "Time Keeps on Slippin'")
  • Fox Technician (from "When Aliens Attack")
  • Robot Elder #5
  • Doug the Demon-bot
  • Lrrr

Getting big now. Hm, I'll have to see about that upgrade.

you realise you'll have to add a bunch of new characters as the new series starts to be broadcast, don't you? (assuming it gets broadcast... who knows?)
Our choicest plans have fallen through, our airiest castles tumbled over, because of lines we neatly drew and later neatly stumbled over.

Well, when it gets too big, I'll either reduce its size for the updates, zip it, or host it at FM:TLZ.  :)

Yeah. I'll probably still be adding the original ones by the time that comes along though anyway  ;)

It's the President of the Network! Kill him! Pull the plug on him!

This is starting to look, if you pardon the gushing, totally awesome. And thanks for heeding my suggestion about Robot 1-X.
