I usually gripe about what I call revisionist history, but tonight I did some of it myself. Five years ago my wife and I went to see the movie "Avatar." I know that some people hate it and others like it, but I thought it would be a funny parody to put together with Futurama. I remember rushing through it that night to get it posted, and that rushing really took it's toll on the quality of the piece. The idea was cute, but it was really badly done. I don't think anyone will miss the original, because it was awful. Now, may I present the remade masterpiece. At least it's much better than its predecessor Avatarama . I look through my gallery quite often, and I would cringe every time I saw it; this new one is much more representative of my artwork. Enjoy, guys.

Marge Sketchdump 1 by Gulliver63
Marge Sketchdump 1
Out of all the sketchdumps I've done, I don't think I've posted one of Marge Simpson. As you can tell by the commentary on one of them, I've spent a lot of time getting my car fixed (Bill, our main garage guy, is getting to be like a member of the family). Marge has a most interesting face for a cartoon character, and it can show a wide range of emotions.

     As you can see here, there are many ideas in my sketchbook that don't quite make it. For my Simpsons Dune project The Dune Simpsons, I kicked around the idea of having Mr. Burns as the God-Emperor, and also here as the Baron; the Baron concept is really comical, as the character it's based on weighs about 500 pounds, and Monty here is just a bag of bones. If I could have done it as a show idea, you would hear the beeping of a truck in reverse every time he backed up. Even though I didn't use the idea, I still wanted to share it.

     Also shown is a sketch that I developed with kiff57krocker.deviantart.com/ of a kung-fu Marge, and an unused "Jurassic Marge" idea - "It's vision is based on movement."

Steampunk Morgan by Gulliver63
Steampunk Morgan
The bony old Professor shook his fist at the bureaucrat. "You are probably the meanest person in the whole world!"
     "Be that as it may," she answered, "this zeppelin doesn't fly until you've addressed these violations. Good day, sir."

I've been wanting so badly to get involved with steampunk, and just haven't found an opportunity. This is my first attempt at it in five years  since Steampunk-arama It's funny that I have been so alienated from it, as I used to draw steampunk aircraft back in high school in the late 1970's (it wasn't called steampunk back then). My first realization of what this was came from a Game Designers Workshop game called "Space 1889" about 25 years ago. At any rate, it sure is fun, and I really want to get involved with it. I'm already dabbling with a story where Turanga Leela ends up in a universe called the "Steamverse," and it's been quite fun.

     Doesn't she look natural like this? Heck, Matt Groening's character of Morgan is halfway Victorian as it is.

The Valley of Giants by Gulliver63
The Valley of Giants
Another film project that Lois Griffin co-starred with Marge Simpson on, "Valley of Giants" also included an appearance by Gil Gunderson as the circus director. "Ya gotta give old Gil a chance," he says in the movie, "the circus is almost on its feet. Just give me three more weeks..."

     The other day I ran across some stills for the 1969 movie "Valley of Gwangi," and literally laughed thinking of what I could do with it. It was a wonderful memory from my childhood, filled with Ray Harryhausen animated monsters www.youtube.com/watch?v=hyl4MU… . What kid could ask for more...cowboys and dinosaurs. Now we have giant savage women and dinosaurs. They capture Lois in the film, and you know that there is going to be some serious butt-whooping when she breaks free.

     I own none of the characters in this parody of a Warner Brothers film.

The Tribunal by Gulliver63
The Tribunal
"Do you understand the charges that I've just read you?"

I got this idea from a great movie a while back called "Jack and the Beanstalk" where one of Jack's descendants went on trial. The movie scene was so neat, and even provided a platform where he could address the giants. One of the giants, BTW, was Daryl Hannah of 50 foot woman fame. They threw in a bit of forced perspective and camera angles and came up with a really nice movie scene. 

     I don't know what the defendant did, (someone who looks amazingly like Zapp Brannigan), but it must have been serious. Lois is even poking him in the belly.

     I put most of this together at about 4 in the morning after a rough night sleep.

I own none of these characters, or the scene from the movie.

Not a problem. It was such a neat situation...more than just a "hi and bye" thing. I got to chat with him. I told him that his short story "The Hated" would have made such a great Twilight Zone episode. He responded with, "You know that I knew Rod, didn't you?" He told me of how he used to commute from his home in Syracuse to Hollywood every week through the filming of the show. 

    Being from Cincinnati, I'm also very proud of the fact that Rod's first radio job was at WLW radio there.

I was going through some old Looney Tunes commercials. You prolly seen these a million times but incase there's that 0.01% chance. I like the first one where they're lined up marching together in song. The reason being is I wonder sometimes how consistent their sizes are in comparison to one another.  I could have sworn hippety hopper is actually bigger than Sylvester and the same with Speedy and Tweety. This is in the 60's so unfortunately Henery Chicken Hawk is no longer loved.  I wonder if Kent Rogers were alive through World War II how the voice acting industry would have been with him still around because he was actually the one who came up with a lot of voices before Mel Blanc took most of them over. 

Mel Blanc's Elmer Fudd is something foreign to me, I'm not used to watching the more recent Looney Tunes cartoons from the late 50's on lol.

Elmer started out looking very different...a lot bigger and fatter, and it was definitely filled with WW2 jokes about wartime taxes and victory gardens. Elmer is really fun to draw.

I really liked World War II Elmer when he was actually really round and plump and looked more like a fat human being than being originally modeled after egghead which the character was still great, but I thought it was more humorous when it looked like he looked more like Curly from the Three Stooges. It's more fun to see him animate as well.

I'm a big fan of the "old school" Bugs Bunny, with his flattened head and more pronounced Brooklyn accent. I love how he enters the scene saying, "What's all the hubbub, bub?"

Hey Man my Friend Lorin and I have struck a deal to turn my writing into comics. I write the scripts up and cover the costs of her materials and she provides the illustrations to me. This is the first work we've done together just in time for the Holidays. rockhead1989.deviantart.com/ar…
