Broken Picture Telephone

Postby willaaaaaa » Mon Jul 02, 2012 10:32 pm UTC

Rules:

1. Open the spoiler in the previous post.
2. If it is text, then draw what is described to the best of your ability (MS Paint works just fine). Post the image under a spoiler.
3. If it is an image, then describe what is in the image using words. Post the description under a spoiler.
Additional rule: No posting more than once within a span of six posts.

The idea is to see how the scene evolves over time, just as in the children's game Telephone--the only difference is that instead of whispering words, we alternate between words and pictures.

I'll start:

didn't whoever that is see JestingRabbit's big warning at the top of the other thread, not to post in other threads apart from that one?

There's a big green t-rex on the right with his mouth a-gape and saliva shooting out, forming a puddle on the ground. A scientist guy with messy hair and a lab coat is bending over and measuring the temperature of the puddle with a thermometer. He seems pretty happy about it.

A baby, dressed in a white diaper and a blue bow, is crawling and stares wide-eyed in the shadow of a large pile of large hot-dogs with identical condiments. Meanwhile, a black ghost outlined in purple wielding a giant ax and a Jack-o-lantern face floats poised to chop the innocent baby to pieces. The scene is very joyful.

seems darvince and vieto posted at about the same time, both with text. Doesn't matter much because although mine illustrated vieto's, it doesn't do a bad job of illustrating darvince's too.
