Pesky Parasites.

rilly cool. I like the color and contrast. I don’t mean value contrast but contrast of shapes… organic shapes vs. geometric… fine lines vs. heavy shapes. I’m really liking it. Someting about the color though that makes it really work.

The only thing that detracts from it for me is it seems to lean to the right. The orange section at the top and the yellow section on the bottom both go down to the right… then the “provacative insertion” is tilted to the right also…

cool topic. aren’t villi the little hairs that some single celled organisims use to move around… sorta relates to parasites… kinda..

inman

Nice work Villi - where’d the illustrations come from? I’m with anethon - those colors are badical!

fashionvictim

the little hairs are called cilia, i do believe

anethon

oh yeah, duh. good thing I’m not a biologist…

villi: 1. Biology. A minute projection arising from a mucous membrane, especially: a. One of the numerous vascular projections of the small intestine. b. One of the fingerlike projections of the chorion that contribute to the formation of the placenta in mammals. 2. Botany. A fine, hairlike epidermal outgrowth.

Villi

Villi is my name, short for Vilhjalmur. I´m thinking of changin it now after reading Anethons bioligical terms of my name :) I got the the illustrations froom a simple google search. Good old google :) The background is mostly done in Illustrator and then the colors are tweaked in Photoshop to give it a kind of sickly orange and green look. I also have a medical report overlaying the backround.

inman

It really is a spectacular image.

Villi

Thanks Inman. It was a slow day at work so I really could put some extra effort into it. I think it took me about 1 hour to find just the right illustrations then about 2 hours to make the image. The background was the most challenging thing to do I wanted it to convey a feeling of a spreading infection.

Lincoln

hey villi, sorry I haven’t responded. I know you said you wanted to do a quick one, but I like yours and wanna try and do it some justice.

plus my girlfriend’s in town.

I’ll be on it in a coupla days.

Villi

no prob. Sometimes girlfriends are more important than DSNLG, wait a minute what am I saying?

Lincoln

I was just trying to show Villi’s victim…um…Meaty here, as a parasite.

we’re all just parasites to Mutha Earth.

man.

provocative insertion…

huh huh huh…

pretty funny…

That’s all it took. Just one look. Tacosaurus loves insertions.

anethon

hehee, meaty. I’m imagining meaty as being especially prone to infections.. not having skin. He keeps having to pour anti-fungal and anti-bacterial solutions over himself. gets the seats wet with those solutions mixed with blood. poor meaty.

bharper

i wanna know what meaty is doing to the poor guy next to him..

what an odd guy meaty is..

tacosaurus

Meaty was Baiting under the table. He has the dreaded wahd fist for Jimothy Thornpe sitting next to him, right on the back, splat, whooo dats sicknin…

Some Highschool Slanguage.

Tacosaurus’ Sick. BIG UPS BOB DOBBS. give me slack.

tacosaurus

Was R.J. Fletcher the name of the network tv guy in UHF? Weird Al called me, he said he was pissed. His lawyer is pissed too. Sighting Sources.

Lincoln

Yea! Taco gets the prize. I love that movie

Villi

I´m still contemplating on my next move. hopefully I´ll have something up tomorrow.

Villi

The birth of Meaty.

creepy!

Is that a video capture from The Wall? ;D

Villi

Lincoln

I like this image a ton because of its simplicity and yet insane chaos. Feels very microscopic-view…which I love…

This is a very sickening DSNLG…and I like the visual breakdown of this one.

Lincoln

this logue’s all over the place. I wanted to do something to bring it closer to villi’s but it wasn’t working. this was just done using the spider on the guy in image 3 as a brush.

xavi

I’m attatched with the microscopic view but I miss some red color on it. I feel the composition as a blood parasite, but the background doesn’t make me think in blood.

Though, it could be a stomack parasite too… anyway, nice work!

Villi

hi Lincoln. Good to see we are in business again. I should have something ready in a couple of days!

BTW: happy new year

Villi

Parasite Man will make your blood boil :)

Mmmh, love me some gif pattern dither. Welcome back Villi!

Lincoln

Meaty! you’ve come back! that means it was meant to be looks good

inVZbl

Kinda reminds of those stereo pictures. Ive been looking at the picture for the last 20 minutes trying to find the hidden one… all im seeing are lil devils and maggots. I think i forgot to take my medication.

Villi

Lincoln. Don´t make Meaty rot too long ;)

Lincoln

plah

Nice detailing on the type here.

thadwiddle

ew.

nice work…i wish i could make myself look at this longer but i think i’ll loose my dinner ;)

Villi

this logue seams to have taken a trip to the morgue. Is meaty finally dead? stay tuned!

tacosaurus

those lips are incredible lincoln.

Lincoln

are you hitting on me?

tacosaurus

ohh dear, no….

Great composition. Strangely beautiful. I like it.

Lincoln

wow, that’s very cool. nice textures and forms. it looks kinda tree-like. is this some surreal eden reference or something?

Villi

One body two heads but wich one is the parasite, feeding of the other one? soon the body will be to weak to sustain both and the snake will finish the job.

Lincoln

aaah aight. Siameaty.

creighton

Siameaty…heh.

Yeah, these last two images have been hott.

Lincoln, told you already, but loved the type treatment and general composition/focal blurring and overall feel. The 8-bit dither has me.

This last image is very Giger-esque…the snake very nicely integrated…getting very eerie here. The additional textures in the faces are great. Would like to have seen a bit more done with the space to the right of the right face…a little smudgey…but i’m just nit-picking. These look fabulous.

Villi

you are right creighton the space on the right is kind of smudgey. I blame it on my stinkin monitor. I thinks its time to buy a new Apple 23” LCD.

commudesmax

I’m looking at your image with Apple 23”LCD. Except the snake it’s sharp, the rest of the color is more …….pixelated. Can anyone tell me how to fix this problem? PLEASE!! (incase it happen to me in the future)

But Villi, the composition as everyone said, it is beautiful. what is that 2 horizontal bar thing on the left, right beside the eye?? Little small bow to u^_^

creighton

The “pixelated” effect is from an 8-bit dither from having reduced the pallete…There’s more subtle gradation in the faces and what-not (rather than the contrast-y nature of the snake), so you notice the pixelating effect more. At the same time, this looks to be a combination of a dithered image masked in places over a non-dithered version. Am I right?

g3aR

i love that snake touch lol

Villi

Come on Lincoln give me the coup de grâce and let it be done.

commudesmax

Yo, Lincoln, get your shit done ^_

Lincoln

you know you stumped me with that last image, villi. its really good and I don’t know what to do with it.

Lincoln

…okay, just cuz commudesmax pressured me… and its supposed to be dark but if its TOO dark, blame creighton, cuz my monitor’s too dark, and I adjusted off his computer…which I think is too bright

and anything else that might be wrong is probably Inman’s fault.

basically I can’t be blamed for anything wrong with this image.

all the stuff I did was cool.

this image is great. the darkness works well because the content is dark too. i like how you kept the most interesting shapes from the previous image.

nice job.

Villi

Great Image. Great logue, thanks Lincoln. R.I.P Meaty

Beerad

Cool nice final two images here.

commudesmax

See Lincoln, all u need is a little push by me, then you have a great image come out.

Although I do wish to see more detail of this image, but it is great as it is.^^ Awesome^^

Would you like me to spank Creighton’s monitor for u?

RevDrLuv

nice!

inVZbl

you are a troubled soul… but looks good none the less.

which one of your personalities did this one?

creighton

I fucking love this image. You shoulda heard my high rant after I saw it on his computer. Then I suggested we take it to mine to see how the color/levels were. They were way off. So he adjusted it. Then took it back to his.

Now i’m seeing it for the first time on my computer at work (LCD monitor). It’s dark. But this monitor always condenses the black/white points, causing uber-contrast. There are definitely a lot of subtleties missing here due to the darkness…but it’s still a wicked piece and a good follow-up/closer to this DSNLG.

Diamantis

I like how it looks like a fresco painting. It sorta reminds me of a master renaissance artist’s interpretation of Hell! Mmm… I’m hungry … could you pass me the ketchup please!
