Patrick seemed really hyped about GiantBomb's theme this year being "Solving The E3 Mysteries", and I also thought that was funny.

Someone made some fanart and I got really itchy about the idea of them as like a 50s children's book, and I thought "I better fucking get this down before someone else comes up with it first!!!"

Reader hold tight, you are in for a fright!

Tell me how to improve it if you have any suggestions, cos I don't wanna send these guys any fanart that doesn't look like them or is drawn bad. I'm havin trouble getting Jeff to look like jeff, and I think I'm gonna do Brad's outfit again to make him look more vintage. I'm thinking about going in Photoshop and going over it as a painting, and making it look more legit and have like spooky rim lighting and yknow... cos vector art doesn't really... aaahh maybe it's fine...

Trivia: It had this sticker, but I took it off cos I thought it was distracting. Also Patrick used to look like this but I changed him cos I thought I could be nicer. Oh and an alternate title was this.

Amazing!

Now this needs a Kickstarter. :)

I picked the right time to wander back into the Off-Topic forum.

Amazing. Well done. Beautiful. Head shot. Amazing.

...sorry about that.

But that is pretty amazing, I'm not so sure about the background though, nothing about it really says E3...

With that said though, this could (or should perhaps) easily be the official E3 2012 Giant Bomb poster.

Looks great. The only thing that sticks out to me is Patricks chin is pretty big, other than that it looks fine.

#7 Posted by deathstriker666 (1337 posts) -

That's fucking perfect

#8 Posted by Scrawnto (2454 posts) -

Nailed it. The 50s-style short shorts and polo shirts with sweaters are perfect.

#9 Edited by AssInAss (2663 posts) -

That's excellent!

Jeff's hair, just change the color and no need for those lines.

#10 Posted by Shikon (176 posts) -

Where is Adam Sessler tough?

Or is that the mystery?!

You've never read a choose your own adventure book have you? The background is perfect

#12 Edited by I_smell (3924 posts) -

Nah I think it'd be funnier if the background was the LA convention centre, just with regular people walking in and out of it.

I just didn't spend long looking for a picture.

#13 Posted by beepmachine (618 posts) -

Awesome idea, it looks really cool. The one thing that looks off to me is the flare from the flashlight. I think you could remove it or soften it. You could also apply a filter in photoshop to make it look done with tradiitonal media if you don't feel like painting the whole thing digitally.

#14 Posted by PatVB (331 posts) -

That's really awesome! Nice work, duder!

#15 Posted by ZZoMBiE13 (338 posts) -

Priceless. I'm pissed off that I didn't think to make one of these! :D

Nicely done.

#16 Posted by BraveToaster (12589 posts) -

Jinkies!

#17 Posted by vonFlampanker (329 posts) -

Really, really nice.

Since you asked for suggestions: Maybe a condensed sans-serif font for the "Adventure Bunch Five" part? It's a little equal in hierarchy to the "Electronic Three" main title. Maybe go with a book cover format? Something fun could be done with the author's name.

#18 Edited by I_smell (3924 posts) -

Yeah I kind of already tried to. Don't know if Ryan and Jeff's poses LOOK FAMILIAR or anything!!! but then I drew the other characters and it got too wide with all the stuff I had to squeeze on. so I was like aaaaa... this'll do. I'm not tryina hit perfect parody or anything, the main thing is that the joke is there.

#40 Posted by pseudomyxoma (108 posts) -

Just came in here to post how awesome this is. I really hope that GB uses this as their theme this year, too fucking good not to

#41 Posted by Soulblitz (350 posts) -

This is fucking gold. It has to be part of the E3 theme this year!

#42 Posted by Demoskinos (15007 posts) -

(nah I bet they'll come up with something way funnier and nuttier- they'll probably ACTUALLY DRESS UP as the hardy boys, right?)

#44 Posted by Bones8677 (3263 posts) -

@I_smell: As an artist I'm really critical of other's artwork. But that is legitimately great.

#45 Posted by SpartanAmbrose (834 posts) -

Flawless victory. Great job, duder!

#46 Posted by Ravenlight (8040 posts) -

Someone needs to be dressed up as Velma from Scooby-Doo. I'm thinking Ryan.

I'm demanding my sub fee back if GB doesn't use this as their E3 image this season. You're a God among men,
