THE 2011 MESSAGEBOARD ADVENT CALENDAR!!!
« on: 01 December, 2011, 12:36:42 am »
It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas, thrills in every store! Oooooooh, it's here, the highlight of the year, 2000AD advent calendar!!!

His lordship Buttonman has asked this thread to be kept comment free and just be full of juicy Thrillpower so I'll start a new thread here: http://forums.2000adonline.com/index.php/topic,34798.0.html for comments!

Right! December 1st and I have TWO treats in store for you! The first is my annual shitey film, this year I've chosen to do "The Christmas Alphabet" and you'll find it here: http://youtu.be/FPGGyeVXwGU

Secondly, I've made a PC-based app (sorry Mac users, use it on your gran's) called "YOU be the Judge!" which you can use to make brilliant(!) pictures of yourself, your postie, your dog or even your penis into various 2000AD characters - PLEASE post some of your creations on the Advent Calendar comments thread (though not the penis ones...)

Hopefully you'll find that here to download and unzip: http://www.mediafire.com/?6zvbwm2wwcy82w6. Here's a couple of examples to whet your doodahs...:


Wells


Watson

Burdis

Merry Christmas everyone, I can't wait to see what you come up with!!!

"He didn't think them too many"

The perspective on that chairs all wrong

Merry Christmas everyone - a glass raised to Pete Wells Block for the idea. Also to Mr Burdis who I modelled the judge on (the badge does actually say Burdis). Also look out for my awful scrawl on the 21st with Van Dom and the 24th with Dash Decent ;)

Have a Dreddful Christmas everyone.

Dumb all over, a little ugly on the side.

Happy Christmas, everyone. So, this year my mission to spread the word of the good book, 2000ad, through the gift of Thrill-power continued.

I chose to leave "Brothers of the Blood" some where around Ireland. Not only is Brothers of the Blood a great introduction to Judge Dredd, it has also got some fantastic stories and great art too.



A note was left inside this, wishing them a Happy Christmas from the forum and inviting them to come and join us here to say hi. Even though this didn't happen previous years it may happen this one.





Then it was left for someone to get an unexpected dose of Thrill-power.

Two from me... due to a panic Sunday thinking it was my turn then, realising I'd left the file in work and rattling off a quick plan B.... before checking and seeing I wasnt up till today.

Any-hoo.....

I hope the youtube link works as I've tried to make the vid the main one on the page but I think it failed. Click here:- Merry Christmas

[Emp edit: Direct link: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SV7EqDSIC_o ]

If that failed then click on the pic below



It would have been longer but two factors got in the way, I aint Ray Harryhausen and Tharg couldn't bloody well do as it was positioned  ::)  :-[

Anyway, Merry Christmas to you all  :wave:

Here's how it went down.

After the unqualified success of my arthouse series of 'Having me dinner photos...



...I thought I'd maintain the theme for the advent calendar and dispense with the rather tacky Microsoft Paint daubings.

Annie Leibovitz was hired for the shoot with the set taking many moments to assemble. The initial shots were fanatastic...



...but perhaps lacking a certain seasonal something. Special effects gurus were flown in form Hollywood with frankly great results...



...but where is the family element that makes the whole season worthwhile? Happily Seti was availble between cat food and things on sticks photo shoots...



Regrettably Seti began to voice some creative differences and the whole project ended as he delivered the ultimate critisism...



So there you are a beautiful series of portraits to warm your seasonal cockles and far better than some crappy Paintbox scratched out daubing. What? You want one of them too? Hmmm ok seeing as it's Christmas...
