Fanart Bloopers...

Ever mess up on a piece you are working on, and either feel bad about it later, or laugh at yourself for doing it in the first place? If so, post it here! This thread is an attempt to look back at things we've done, and perhaps get a laugh out of it...

You can post the earliest art you've done when you just got started if you want...almost anything goes!

At best, this thread is an injection of humor in a day, at worst, a bit of a reminder to ourselves of where we come from, artistically speaking. So I hope all artists feel comfortable to share with us any mistakes they may have saved...

(PS: mods, I hope this thread is OK, if its in the wrong place, feel free to move it...)

sai if you increased the first "icons" fps it'd be cool. Go 1 text line per second. (granted the rule is 1 second per word but you don't want it to drag)

Thanks Jamie, maybe i will re-do it...someday :P

I think the funniest thing that got pointed out to me when i first posted it (around 2 years ago) was what the image focus was when it says "4 inches" :lol:

...all those terrible gutter minds :P

Aww Dream :P...I've made errors like that before...
I made a bunch of banners for when SN got renewed for Season three...and one of them I'd made said "Cheer up lads you got a second season"

*Facepalm*

I no longer have that one :P

This is a cool thread. lol

I may have a few piece I trashed or messed up with.

I shall dig around in my photobucket, see if I uploaded them. :lol:

Some of my early stuff:

My first avi before I had my trusty GIMP.



first avis and icons with GIMP:



It was used at my LJ. What was I thinking?! :bang



icons:











smaller icons I used at a site:

The scales were off, except the last one, I didn't like it so I made another version I used.

Early banners:





My first set:





Some animations I was tinkering, messed up and I trashed, these are my firsts:





More recent stuff:

Wallies I don't like but still posted:





banners:





a header I used at a community:



recent icons:









And the latest I am not satisfied with:



*cringes at them* What the heck was I thinking making these again?!

Yes, I am not satisfied with my things a lot of times. *sigh*

And yes, I mess up a lot.

Heh, sorry looks like I picspammed the thread. :blush :hide

Okay, for the record, absolutely none of that was 'bad'. Just so y'all know.

:P Sai, I think the most blooperish thing about that icon is that it's, you know, Jared! C'mon, 4 inches would be almost an insult to the man. ;) That's how I knew you were talking about something else, like his height! :halo


Okay, I really like this banner, but I messed up the lyrics. I was working on this banner where I used the lyrics from Blue Oyster Cult's "Fire of Unknown Origin". I'd finished the banner and then put in all the correct lyrics...except for the name of the song. I had "Burning for you" in my head and used that instead. *facepalm*


^incorrect


^incorrect


^FINALLY correct!

It wasn't a big deal, but I couldn't believe I'd flubbed the lyrics! I guess it was cause I was listening to both of them while making it. Oh well. I'm a paranoid artist (comes from being a perfectionist and having an unreliable computer) so I save my art at all stages. I just had to pull up the saved version with the correct verses, but minus the song title and put it in. :P Such drama! :lol:
