Tad Williams' Otherland: Lots of nice VR stuff in there. And pretty good books if you haven't read them.
Eoin Colfer's Artemis Fowl: Think cyberpunk faeries. Also good -- well written kids books.
Arthur Clarke's Rama: Nice alien landscapes to draw the characters in, if that's what you intend.
Forgotten Realms: Wealth of different characters/races/whatever here.
Rama's the only one of those that I'm familiar with, and none of the characters are particularly compelling to me. With the possible exception of the little robotic Shakespeare characters. I'll give it some thought, though.
Hmmm, let's see...
CRFH has nicely iconic characters (see also: icon).
Have you ruled out Star Trek DS9, Voyager, and Enterprise?
Never saw more than a few eps of any of them, so I'm fairly inclined not to bother with them.
X-Files? Um, Fight Club, anything Stephen King, but particularly The Stand and/or Dolan's Cadillac. Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid, anything Clint Eastwood (Good, Bad and the Ugly, Dirty Harry, etc). Moulin Rouge could be wicked cool. The Muppets. Roswell. Alias. Um. Now I'm running out of ideas. Oooh, monster BSB's from the "Everybody" video would also be awesome. No, really, they would. =D
Also, how did Caspian not make your Narnia list? =(
Of those, I've only seen Fight Club (well, read that too), Moulin Rouge, and possibly the Muppets. If I can come up with decent ideas, though, that's fine.
And the character list has been solely (well, at least primarily) by suggestion...
Allow me to suggest Caspian then. ;-)
Done. I've got it on the list, which I'll probably update later tonight once I've given it some more of my own suggestions as well.
pete & pete seconded, and mystery men you should draw the bowling ball. because it has a *skull* inside.
omg you bastard. you havent seen b5, red dwarf, or dr who, and you dont know if you want to draw lumberjacks in lady's knickers? WHAT IS WRONG WITH YOU, OF COURSE YOU DO.
get to watching b5. that should be NUMBER ONE on your priority list of LIFE.
also additional suggestion: Boy on a Stick and Slither
I'm working on Battlestar Galactica right now. Ssh.
As for Pete and Pete, well, I've seen probably two or three episodes of that total. I'm not sure I have sufficient knowledge of it to do fanart at all.
I'll list by number:
1, 5, 6, 8, 10 (if an homage to the original Roahl Dahl illustration style), 11, 12, 20, 21, 22, 23 (as long as it's not from the cartoon series), 24, 25, 26 (I assume we're talking the card game, or a gamer-munchkin), 27, 32
Well, yes, but what I need are additional suggestions. I'm trying to fill this list out to 100 different fandoms so I can match them against the 100 prompts.
sorry I obviously misunderstood
Do you have a list anywhere of what anime series you've seen / TV series you like / video games you've played? I think something even approaching that could help a lot.
You know, this is a very good point. We've basically gotten to the point where people just fire random ideas and hope I've seen them.
On the other hand, if I had such a list made up, I'd probably have a good portion of my fandom list filled out. I'll give that some thought.
Of course. I've done two pieces of fanart for SM before, but I don't think I'm in any danger of running out of characters or ideas.
Battlestar Galactica. XD Esp the sexy Cylon.
I have no idea why I didn't mention this earlier: The Dragonriders of Pern. Dragons galore, and dragonriders (Lessa! F'lar! F'nor!), and the li'l fire lizards. :D
Good Omens: Adam, the Four Horsemen, Anathema, Crowley, Aziraphale, Dog... XD
Endless stuff to be done with Final Fantasy. XD Esp the original one for the NES.
And on the topic of classic NES games and other arcade games -- Bubble Bobble, Super Mario Bros (Princess!), Joust, Space Invaders, and Pong. Tetris, if you can figure something out for it. XD ... Prince of Persia, too.
Nick at Nite: Get Smart. Bewitched. I Dream of Jeannie.
Fairytales (non-Disney): Cinderella (fur slippers!), Sleeping Beauty, Snow White (and Rose Red!), Rapunzel, the Frog Prince, the Little Mermaid, etc.
How about The Wizard of Oz?
More later. :D
*giggle* Making fanart out of really old games would be fantastic all by itself.
And I haven't read Pern for so long, but I'll give it some thought. Lessa's a lot of fun, though.
As for the fairytales... ...meh? If something good occurs to me, sure, but I have to admit I'm not paricularly enthusiastic about them in general.
I'm definitely going to have to do some Aziraphale/Crowley art, though.
Bahaha, that's exactly what I thought, re: classic games. :D
Um, if we want to start REALLY stretching the definition of "fandom," haha, there's always figures from history. :D (e.g.: Alexander the Great + the Gordian Knot)
For individuals under existing fandoms, I also add Nimue and Guinevere and Lancelot and Morgana to the King Arthur saga.
I have to ask (since you're miang
's friend and would be exposed to it): do you mean that "/" as innocent or no?
...Heh. I'd intended the "/" itself as innocent, but the overall idea was... unspecified. Heh.
Also the modern Prince of Persia!
And Homestar Runner.
FARAH vs. TROGDOR: FIGHT!
If no one else has mentioned it (and you've read it of course), what about some characters from American Gods? I'd think that some of those guys would be fun to draw, and you could put such interesting things in the picture...
Indeed. Not only that, but Norse Mythology itself is rather conspicuously missing from the list...
Aw, man. Someone add that to the list. That's a treasure trove.
It will be done.
I'm allowed to add things myself too, after all. :D
Have you ever read the His Dark Materials Trilogy? Starts with GOlden Compass, then Subtle Knife, then Amber Spyglass. If you haven't you should, it's arguably the best fantasy series ever. Ask Rachel, she'll tell you.
I've read the Golden Compass. I've got the others on my list of books to read... but yeah, that would definitely make a good addition to the list.
Also, Mrs. Coulter.
You had me at #1
But really, how about something from ?
Monkey Island, Full Throttle, Sam and Max, Grim Fandango, all good choices.
