I Have Drawn You

While mucking about on the web I came across three instances where people took badly drawn celebrity fan art and photoshoped the celebrities face to actually look like that art and here they are:

I found these images irresistibly hilarious and therefore created one of my own:

I know mine isn’t anywhere close to as good as theirs were but I thought to post it non-the-less. I also plan on submitting it to the website where I found the art to begin with to see if they like my attempt to make him match his art.

They accepted my work so here is the link: http://terrible1dfanart.tumblr.com/

EDIT: I realized that two of those images said “I Have Drawn You” on them and assumed it was a meme. After a “I Have Drawn You Meme” google image search I found that I was sort of correct but only a couple of images came up so while I was able to find more I do not believe that it is a meme. Here are those pictures which for some annoying reason won’t upload in their original sizes:

I also found this one after googling “I Drew You”

Woll Smothing

There is an internet meme called the “Woll Smoth” meme where you take pictures of celebrities and shrink certain facial features. It is closely related to another meme where you give celebrities tiny faces. In all cases, they misspell the celebrities name to include more O’s, normally in the place of other vowels. Here is the original Woll Smoth picture that started the meme:

I don’t know about you, but I find that pretty hilarious to look at.
Here are some other “Woll Smoth Meme” pictures that I found online, collected here for your enjoyment:

And lastly but not least, here is a Woll Smoth photo that I made out of Ed Sheeran after looking at the meme… Err… Well I guess that would be Od Shooron 😉

Here is another photo that I edited (Harry Styles / Horry Stylos)

Clever Tattoos

Firstly, I would like to warn anyone planning on getting a complicated tattoo to look into the artist’s history and actual ability to draw what you want pasted on your body. Otherwise something like this may very well happen:

That aside, here are some amazing tattoos that I found pictures of online:

And lastly some clever ways to cover up name tattoos after breakups and old tattoos that you no longer want. I’m posting these so you can avoid cover ups like this one:

I’m just not sure how they’re going to cover up their cover ups 😉

 

 

Blacklight Tattoos

I stumbled across something called “Blacklight Tattoos” last night while browsing the web. These are tattoos that will only appear under a blacklight. I’ve seen numerous places online where people have misunderstood the concept and believed them to be “glue in the dark tattoos”, they are not. A blacklight is a special kind of lightbulb used in various clubs and at raves. They are also used when you are carded at the door of clubs.

At first I thought these were amazing, you get to have whatever tattoos you want, but they won’t interfere with your employment as bosses, coworkers, and the like will not be able to see them.

However, after looking into them a bit further I would strongly recommend avoiding them completely. Most tattoo artists will refuse to work with the inks as they can cause severe reactions and the long term effects of the ink has not yet been discovered. Also, while many places will claim that it has been approved of the FDA this is not the case. These inks have not been properly studied, and the ink will stop being invisible after exposure to the sun after which it will be brown or black. Even during the stage that the tattoo ink isn’t visible in the sunlight sometimes the tattoo will scar your skin, leaving the words visible at all times as shown below:

Not to mention while many places will offer blacklight tattoos they have never actually worked with the ink and can mess up pretty badly.
Blacklight ink costs more than normal tattoos which people are less likely to react to, have been approved by the FDA, and have no long term side effects.

Warnings not to get these tattoos aside, here are some examples of blacklight tattoos that were done well and look great:

Starting to Take a Look at Online Comics

I have decided to take a closer look at the various online comics that can be read for free online. Here is a list of the online comics that can be read for free along with a bit of information on each.

I would like to be very clear on the fact that I have not read all of these comics and cannot be sure of their ratings. I am hoping that everything I link you to is PG13 at it’s worst and never past that. I am very sorry for anything inappropriate that takes place in the following webcomics as most are comics with which I have not yet been acquainted.

Something Positive:

Image

http://www.somethingpositive.net/index.html

The first online comic that I took a peek at today was Something Positive. However, my firewall says that something malicious may contaminate my computer if I view it today so I’ll just put that one on hold until they figure out the problem and repair their site.

Although it can still be viewed here in the meantime: http://somethingpositive.wikia.com/wiki/Something_Positive_Wiki

I’ve looked at it in the past however and I remember thinking it was hilarious, though in a rather cynical kind of way. They have a bald boneless cat named Choo Choo Bear who is pretty amusing. The characters do develop over the course of the story, and that art changes as well. The comic artist started favoring more simplistic designs and has stuck with them lately.

This comic has it’s own Wikipedia page: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Something_Positive
 along with it’s own wiki: http://somethingpositive.wikia.com/wiki/Something_Positive_Wiki

As you can see on the Wikipedia page this online comic has won awards in the past for both “Outstanding Character Writing” and “Outstanding Dramatic Comic”.

Garfield Minus Garfield:

Image

 http://garfieldminusgarfield.net/

This website takes Garfield comics and edits out Garfield leaving his owner talking to himself like a schizophrenic. He has gotten permission from the original creator of Garfield to do so, so no hard feelings. It makes for a pretty amusing read, although I should probably warn you that it starts to get depressing in large quantities.

 

Twokinds:

Image

http://twokinds.keenspot.com/

This web comic has it’s on wiki http://en.wikifur.com/wiki/Twokinds and it was from here that I found a description of the comic as I haven’t started reading it just yet, “Twokinds is a webcomic created by Tom Fischbach, following the adventures of Trace Legacy and his companions, Flora, Keith and Natani. The story focuses around a love interest between Trace and Flora, with side plots ranging from Keith and Natani’s relationship to the internal and external obstacles that they all face on their travels together.

Twokinds won the 2010 Ursa Major Award for Best Anthropomorphic Graphic Story.

As of February 2010, the comic is updating once a week, generally on a Wednesday.”

This web comic, along with it’s own wiki : http://twokinds.wikia.com/wiki/Main_Page has a Deviantart Group for fan art : http://twokinds.deviantart.com/ and a forum for it’s fans to get to know one another : http://steamcommunity.com/groups/TwoKindsForum

 

A Redtail’s Dream:

Image

http://www.minnasundberg.fi/This is another webcomic that I have not yet read. Here is a description of the comic as found on it’s homepage, ” ‘A Redtail’s Dream’ is a webcomic which updates every day except Sundays (because that’s when I sleep, apparently), telling the tale of a young man and his dog on a very much involuntary journey on the other side of the Bird’s Path, in an artificially created dream existence. As the only ones aware of their unusual situation, the duo has been given the task of bringing their fellow villagers back into their own reality before their souls are passed on to the realms of Tuonela. And the two are attempting to do so with zero enthusiasm.”

From what I have read on other websites this comic holds a great deal of Finnish Lore. From what I have seen, the artwork is incredibly impressive. Don’t believe me? Just click on “New Reader? Start Here” on the comics’ website and start paging through.

This webcomic has a Facebook fan page that you can like or follow for more information and for updates on the webcomic :https://www.facebook.com/pages/A-Redtails-Dream-webcomic/136782976447885 and you can find fan art for it on Deviantart (Though it didn’t seem to have it’s own group).

 

Homestruck:

http://www.mspaintadventures.com/

A friend of mine has been wanting me to read this for quite a while and it seems to be one of the more popular webcomics. I would like to warn you however, that it is not a comic for the indecisive. I have not been able to read it properly because it asks me to choose a name for the character and I cannot (though my friend has told me countless times that it makes no difference).
Homestruck has a Wikipedia page if you are interested in doing research on the comic before reading: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Homestuck but I would advise avoiding the “Plot” section as there will be spoilers. The webcomic is somewhat animated, as it is interactive, and has over 6,000 pages along with a complicated plot.
This webcomic also has it’s own meme http://knowyourmeme.com/memes/subcultures/homestuck and it’s own wiki : http://mspaintadventures.wikia.com/wiki/Homestuck

Due to it’s popularity you can find a great deal of fan art online, along with fan videos on youtube, and fan posts on websites ike tumblr, reddit, etc. Homestruck has a Facebook Fan Page : https://www.facebook.com/pages/Homestuck/134211469925249 and it’s own fan forum : http://mspaforums.com/forum.php?s=0f3bb2d3ca3ba6920a7bd1618720fe3a

xkcd:

http://www.xkcd.com/

“A webcomic of romance, sarcasm, math, and language.” this site features simple drawings and focuses more on the dialogue. It does have characters that you will start to recognize and seems to have a sort of simpler sense of humor. I have seen posts from this webcomic being shared on Facebook but didn’t know that they were from until now as it’s style is much less recognizable than Cyanide and Happiness (which I should probably include in this list as well).

This webcomic has a Wikipedia page, found here :http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Xkcd and the comic’s creator and writer has a Twitter : https://twitter.com/xkcd

xkcd also gives you the option to purchase any comic as a poster.

 

Cyanide and Happiness:

Image

http://www.explosm.net/comics/3192/

This webcomic can get extremely inappropriate. Every comic can be read as a stand alone without having to start from the beginning. They have a youtube channel with Cyanide and Happiness animated shorts : http://www.youtube.com/user/ExplosmEntertainment?feature=watch a Wikipedia page : http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cyanide_and_Happiness and a Facebook fan page : https://www.facebook.com/explosm

If you are a fan of any of these comics and can think of something I forgot to include please notify me via email. I would be more than happy to learn more about these comics.

Also if you know of any web comics that people should look into and read please feel free to suggest them in the comments.

 

Starting a Blog

I have decided to start a blog. I will be using this to post about all of the various things that have been on my mind. I hope you enjoy reading what I have to say now that you have found this, and I’d like to apologize ahead of time for how incredibly image heavy I can be from time to time.
