So I thought I’d do a little color practice…. with a bit of animation thrown in. Two hours total, including the eyes.
One day I’m gonna cosplay as this guy….. again. (Admittedly, the eyes came out a bit sloppy)
You cosplayed as Judge Doom? I’ve been wanting to do that for years. Respect.
In fact, my current trench coat/cowboy hat attire probably pays subconscious homage to characters like him or Darkwing Duck.
So I watched “The Identical” with a few buddies upon the absolutely glowing review from The Cinema Snob </sarcasm>.
It was awful. There was one scene that really bugged me, though. It’s the scene where we first see Ray Liotta’s character in the tent revival church back in the 1930s. Behind him is a quote from scripture written on a fairly large sign (photo 1).
I have a typographic eye, and when I saw this scene , I recognized the typeface of the sign almost immediately. It’s Poplar, also known to TGWTG fans as the typeface used at the end credits of the Nostalgia Critic series (photo 2). Poplar was designed in 1990, looong after the events in this scene.
Now, the font (according to MyFonts.com) was “designed from photographs taken by Rob Roy Kelly of the one surviving copy of an 1830 William Leavenworth type specimen book.” That’s all fine and good, but I was able to recreate the text pretty much exactly in Photoshop with just Poplar (photo 3).
This fall, warmer heads will prevail. Ransom 2. Rated R. Coming soon to a theater near you.
"You will not note my Father’s word, nor remember Cass’ camera. But you will not forget what we did here."
"We are coming 9/11/14."
Let’s do some improvisational comedy. NOW.
This has made me laugh really loudly, twice.
I’M FUCKING PRINTING THIS AND POSTING IT EVERYWHERE
I would laugh but ‘Dunne’ is actually my last name and I’ve heard jokes like this all my life and oh god my brain
