An illustration for Ericar's Tiny Story "Zombie Gentlemen."
Zombie Gentlemen by Ericar
Zombies are such gentlemen. They love you for your brain.
For this illustration of Blodnasir's "righttoleft" I made a projectionist the main character so that they could be depicted re-splicing film to make the heartbreak come first, and then the love come after (after the "reel change" - marked by the circle in the upper right hand corner of the broken heart filmstrip frame to add to the projectionist theme a bit.)
Here is the art only of "Goblin Ears: a tiny story" in case anyone wants to play around with the drawing or alter the text, etc.
Updated the previous version of this, "Invincibility: Tiny Story," with new artwork (based on work by The MOCKery) and replaced the stock broker character with a lawyer. Slight text revision as well.
Another idea for text would be: "In the courtroom the lawyer was invincible... but dead inside."
The invincible stock broker happened to be dead inside.
Based this concept a bit on jamignott's "Tiny Story: Death is Obvious." Originally it was going to be the zombie-like character (with business exterior) saying "blah, blah, blah *croak*" but then I shifted the concept a bit.
This is definitely more of a mock-up rough draft; I'd love to see others' take on this.
Here is the art only of "The Messenger: A Tiny Story" in case anyone wants to play around with the drawing or alter the text, etc.
An illustration for MadisenMusic's "Tiny Story: Hursery."
Tiny Story: Hursery
Ok I'll admit, I have a few skeletons in my closet; but they weren't skeletons when I put them there.
Jimmy Tuck sketched with booze & cigarettes.
But he only drew blanks.
REmixed MadisenMusic's "Tiny Story: Jimmy Tuck" and focused more on the "drawing blanks" concept.
Ways to add on to this could be to create an art studio that he's in, or create an easel in front of him. Just some initial thoughts...
Thought I'd do something a bit diabolical for Dee's diabolical "Clowns" Tiny Story. zeogle had some wonderful illustrations to remix in his "Circus Sketches" RECord.
Note: I left the text at the bottom so that the main imagery at the top would be easily remixable.
An illustration for MRT's Tiny Story "Robert." I decided to only show the side of his body with two arms rather than an entire figure so that it segued into the text more.
Robert by MRT
My friends always call me Octokid but I only have three arms. They should just call me Robert.
A philosophical discussion ensues during a fireside poker match-up between wirrow and I. Maybe some REmixers can roll in and play with this? It could use some colors, a background, more props, a sky, and maybe different dialogue and additional characters? Oh... and animation?
Artwork for "The Trash Collectors: A Tiny Story."
Day after day George and Martha picked up the trash at the grounds where people play.
But tomorrow was to be different, for they would scoop up the polluters. And throw them away.
Here's a drawing of how I envisioned The Magician in Part One of wirrow's "reverse magic" to look like: a bit old fashioned, a bit brooding, and totally sporting a tux and white gloves.
This is in rough draft, disproportional form as of now. The left side of the face looks like it got punched by a big dude and got super swollen. haha
"Part One. The magician is on stage..."
Artwork for JonMac's "tiny story - LGM"
The kids shined flashlights at the moon to signal the little green men who lived there.
Years later, the little green men came down to visit, but nobody believed in them any more.
* Note: This could definitely use a revamped UFO in the background.
Artwork for "Godard: A Tiny Story."
Studios used to give Godard a camera and let him go shoot whatever he wanted. I just got my camera online.
I drew an interpretation of "Imaginary Bob" from starkjanus' Tiny Story. I envisioned him as more of a valour-sweatsuit-wearing-swindler kind of imaginary friend.
* Note: I wanted to incorporate only a little bit of the car in the background, but I think that turned out pretty lousy. Maybe a graphic designer could extract Bob from this and put him into a cooler-looking background with a car and maybe some neighborhood scenery. ;)
I drew an interpretation of a member of "the glow gang" from wirrow's Tiny Story. I envisioned the gang member exhibiting a bit of high end fashion whilst carrying a very retro boombox up to his ear.
Artwork for "Like Ants, We're Marching: A Tiny Story."
I did a little soul-searching on a stroll through the sidewalks of the surreal city.
Walking beside me was an ant, presumably on the same existential journey.
And I wondered if we were listening to the same song on our headphones.
Here's a mock-up of how I envisioned "Dream Psychology: a tiny story" being illustrated.So if there are any illustrators here that want to see what they can do with this concept/mock-up, by all means gooooo for it!
Essentially it is of a boy or girl in bed sleeping holding their think bubble full of wonderful dreams like it's a pillow.
There are lots of visual collages on the site that could be used to make the thought bubble/pillow.
REMIX AWAYYYY!!!! :)
Here's a mock-up of one way to illustrate "Shady Shadow: TIny Story."
I like the overall arrangement and the characters (so far.) The text and the quote bubble could use some work (i.e. better placement and style.)
Perhaps the character has a prop or two (a briefcase with money leaking out of it a bit, or something suggestive of theft or whatever.)
The gun the shadow is holding could use some work too (looks like he is pointing as it's drawn now.)
Basically this is a rough sketch just to play around with if anyone's interested...
Here's a basic mock-up of a possible concept for the "Sleepyheads" illustration. You see the bed and the pillows... but not the couple. They're under the covers. Not sleeping.
I did include a bit of their feet coming out of the sheets, but surely this (and the rest of the illustration) could be done a whole lot better. Just wanted to throw this mock-up out there in cartoon style to see if anyone wanted to remix it.
