Whiskey Media/Futurama mashup :Updated with Matt Elfring

UPDATE: This is pretty darn late and hardly relevant since the Whiskey Media thing has been crushed under the weight of the buyouts and all that, but I've gotten to know Matt Elfring (Comic Vine's InferiorEgo) in recent weeks and realized he was a tragic omission from this. So to correct that error on my part, here is Matt Scruffy: InferiorJanitor

Matt Scruffy, InferiorJanitor

Finally got around to adding Norm (Normz McKenzie, The original Lego worm) and Tony "G-man" (Elzar... or I guess Gee-Zar). Here is what will most likely be the final version. I took out all the nameplates. They were a little distracting and since we're nearly at 20 characters, it'd be almost impossible to keep them in and have this retain any kind of artistic flow. I also took out the cheap "Will Smith" gag on Will's T-shirt and changed it to the Death Star. Regular Tested viewers will probably get it, if not then I suggest you Google "The Amazing Test: Bricked" and get in on the fun. Today's episode had some especially good banter between the guys. (i.e. they mentioned my Futurama thread and made me a happy nerd) (woo).

If any Whiskey person was left out, it's not intentional. I've been a regular visitor to the site less than a year and if you aren't a Quick Look regular, I may be unaware of your unique contribution to the sites. Please hit me up either on Twitter or a PM here and we can talk about it.

Hope you like it!

If you'd like to use this image as a wallpaper, this should fit nicely with any widescreen monitor:

If you don't have a widescreen monitor... it's 2012. Upgrade damn it!

Original post from here on out:

I'm not even going to try and explain how the inspiration for thiis one came about. But I still wanted to show it off to people who might appreciate it. So here is my Futurama/Giant Bomb mashup drawing. I hope you enjoy it. :)

Other characters that did not make the cut:

Alex Navarro/Morbo the News Monster as "Navorbo"

Matt Rorie/Scruffy the Janitor as "Rorry, the Janitor"

Patrick was going to be Hermes instead of Nibbler originally. But once I got the idea of Nibbler with Patrick's hair in my head I had to draw it. :P

Any of the girl characters as... Seriously, are there just no girls at Whiskey Media or am I not hitting the right site? I usually stick to Screened, GB, and occasionally Comic Vine. Help me out here community!

Also, before some smartypants shows up to tell me I misspelled Gerstmann's name on the jar, I'm aware of it. It's an intentional gag. Not a very funny one in retrospect, but intentional nonetheless.

If people like this one, I may make another with some of the left out characters. Not sure what kind of time I'll have in the next few weeks as I just recieved a new assignment, but who knows. I'm open to suggestions if you have clever mashup ideas. Feel free to leave a post.

Other places to see things I've done:

Deviant Art portfolio

YouTube channel

Say "Hello" on Twitter

A.H.C.S.

Someone asked if I had a version of this that could be used as a Wallpaper. At the time, I did not. But rearranging the layers and stretching out the background weren't much trouble, so I made a Wallpaper version. Anyone who wishes to do so, feel free to download it and use it. I also added "Navorbo" and a user suggestion; Sara Leela based on Comic Vine's Sara Lima. Hope you like it. :)

Uploaded here, but also kept on my Deviant Art page. LINK

:::Some suggestions from fellow Whiskey fans and a couple by Alex Navarro (Navorbo himself) and here is the latest version:::

:::Update:::

Added these new versions of the wallpaper in 2 formats. These contain all the current characters (for now). Hope you enjoy them. :)

Clever. Would Will Smith be the robot devil?

Posted by ZZoMBiE13

@ShadowConqueror: Heh, or maybe "Roberto" from "Insane in the Mainframe" HAH-HAAAAAAAW!

Posted by N7

I have the weirdest boner right now.

Posted by face15

Wow this is really good and hilarious.

Posted by Vexxan

Fantastic!

Posted by ZeForgotten

heh nice

Posted by KarlPilkington

Very nice.

Posted by ShadowConqueror

Or Will Smith could be the robot Malfunctioning Eddie. Someone corrects him on his pronunciation of "executable" and he says "WHAT!?" and explodes.

That's pretty brilliant duder. Very nice. :D

@N7: lol, thanks. I'll consider that high praise

@face15: @Vexxan: @ZeForgotten: @KarlPilkington: Thanks all. I appreciate the feedback. :)

Last time I checked, Sara (Babs) is currently working in comicvine

Posted by PenguinDust

As a Futurama fan, I applaud your creativity. Excellent work. Would have loved to have seen a one-eyed Leigh Alexander in the mix, too.

Posted by Video_Game_King

Wait, who would Ben be? The ugly giant voiced by Patton Oswalt?

Posted by kmdrkul

Awesome. I come to GB for stuff like this!

Posted by Mento

@Video_Game_King: The Planet Express ship. You know, because of the flying.

Impressive work, Mr ZZoMBiE13. As someone already pointed out, Sara Leela Lima works for Comic Vine if you felt like including a female character at some point.

I'd have loved to have seen Navorbo, myself. I'm thinking Drew would've made a better Scruffy though, since he's everyone's favorite taciturn techie.

@Mento:

But the ship is a woman. Also, it's inside Bender, I think.

Thats awesome, great job.

Amazing work! I believe the real Patrick wears a diaper too

Ry is pretty good.

First, thanks for the compliment. :)

Second, would there be any chance you (or anyone else) could direct me to a profile or maybe a video that features this person? I am still a bit new to the Whiskey Media family of websites and am not as well versed in it's staff as I might be. As a former Gamespot regular, I know a good chunk of the GB cast as their legacy is well storied among gamers. But some of the sister sites I visit only rarely and not nearly enough to really get to know the people there.

And also, thanks to everyone who dropped in to leave a comment. I appreciate the kind words.

I LOVE YOU.

@President_Barackbar: If there were some kind of award for awesome username, I think you'd easily take it every time it was given. Seriously.

+1 Cookie to you.

P.S. It's a trap!

I'll get you two, one of these days.

Also great job dude! Its times like these when I resent not being able to draw anything.

@ZZoMBiE13: She hasn't been seen much outside of her native site of late, but Sara used to appear weekly in the Happy Hour live show Whiskey Media used to have. Since you're a premium member, you can view any of them by checking the Subscriber section of the Videos tab at the top there and scrolling back a few months. Here's a good one to start you off.

Welcome to the site(s), by the way!

Thank you very much. I'll check them out ASAP.

Excellent work. +15 internets.

YAY! 7 more and I can cash them in for the X-ray glasses!

Wait, do people even get that reference or have I just shown my age?

Edited by Dylabaloo

Will and Norm need some love, and Gary Whitta.

Edit: I think Rorie would make a good Hermes, they are both hard-working fellows. If you can fit Zapp Brannigan somewhere in the mix i'd be happier.

Posted by ChrisTaran

Oh wow, I love it!

Do you by any chance have a larger or wallpaper version? Would love to make this my desktop background!

Well, no. But it wouldn't be too difficult to reformat it. Sure, I'll turn it into a wallpaper.

I added a Wallpaper sized version. It also has a couple of extra characters. You can get it from the first post, or you can get it from my Deviant Art page HERE. Enjoy!

Posted by ChrisTaran

@ZZoMBiE13: Awesome! Thanks so much.

Posted by TheWholeDamnShow

I don't want to be THAT GUY, but... Comicvine did it better.

Nightcrawler looks like Mr. Chow from The Hangover.

Edited by Yummylee

Ace stuff, really creative x)

For other Futurama-fryed cast members/friends of the site, I think John Vognocchi would suit Roberto. Ooooo, and Nolan North as Calculon!

Posted by ZZoMBiE13

@TheWholeDamnShow: Ha! That's awesome. Great stuff. Thanks for sharing that.

@Abyssfull: Nolan North as Calculon. That is inspired. Thanks for the suggestion! :)

Posted by ZZoMBiE13

Updated original post. Added Matt Rorie as Seymour, Dave as Zapp Brannigan, Will Smith as Hermes, and Special Guest Nolan North as Calculon. :)

Posted by SSully

Awesome job duder, that shit looks as good as the actual futurama stuff.

Posted by JeanLuc

Great job duder. You got some skills.

Posted by Milkman

Holy shit. This is absolutely incredible.

Posted by ZZoMBiE13

@Milkman: @JeanLuc: @SSully: Thanks to all of you, and to anyone who I didn't reply to personally as well. This thread and drawing have been fun. Mostly because of all the kind words by fellow GiantBombadiers.

Posted by Tireyo

Very nice... though I don't like Futurama.

Wow, really? Well I guess that's what makes this world great. We all have our own tastes.

Thanks for the compliment! :)

Posted by NathHaw

You should just keep this going as much as you can.

Posted by Flappy

Gah! My inner-child loves this waaaaaay too much. Good stuff, duder!

Posted by CharlesAlanRatliff

I like it!

Posted by N7

This is fantastic dude. You really drove this thing home. Really into Dave, that's just epic right there.

Posted by TruthTellah

@ZZoMBiE13: I really think these are fantastic. Truly. I didn't think someone could do it, but you've really done an amazing job.

My only gripe might be Professor Brad. To me, he just seems less fleshed out than the other characters. Though, it's only a small gripe, as the whole team together just works so well. I really appreciate your hard work on this. :)

Posted by the_OFFICIAL_jAPanese_teaBAG

This is great!  I really love Futurama!  Even though I havent watched it for 2 years....
