Anyone remember the video game Rampage? It was one of my favorites. So one of my ideas lately is to combine some pictures of Cincinnati with monsters. Last year on our staycation the wife and I went on top of Carew Tower (for years was the tallest building in the city) and I took some snapshots. Unfortunately the cloudy day didn’t make the end result of the pic that great. Yet when I saw the Fifth Third Tower in one of my pics it brought me back to pumping quarters into the Rampage game.
Now of course I didn’t use the exact monsters from rampage but did my own version of a giant ape and giant lizard beating down a building.
So what do you think? Not sure if I captured it well that they cartoon images actually belong in this scene with the coloring/shading choices I made. My wife didn’t think it mattered and loved it so much that for once she requested a print. Thoughts on making it better in future?
It’s nice that the self-imposed comic publishing schedule is off you so you have the mental energy to branch out. I’m with your wife. I certainly get the gist of it!
Trying new things Colleen and while my stats are half of what they used to be, I haven’t minded at all.
Great job, man! I love the coloring on Kong. You did well, everything looks natural. You should do more stuff like this.
That is the plan. I want to do an entire series.
Yeah. It works just fine. No need to over-render the cartoon characters.
Though, if you wanna try again, giving them a 8-bit look, in the future. That’d be pretty sweet, too.
I wouldn’t even know how to begin
I like it just like it is too. I’m no pro at this, but I know what I like.
Have a terrific day. 🙂
That’s what I like to hear. Thanks Sandee
RAMPAGE was the best damned game ever.
Ghosts and Goblins stole more quarters from me
Love this, Bearman! I don’t see what you are unsure of. It’s Great!
That looks really good Bearman! What I really liked about that game is the fact you could play the same time as others and opt in mid game.
No one ever opted in with me…they just let me die by myself.
Don’t know the game but then my gaming days sorta ended with Ms. Pac Man and my last quarter. Seen one Kong, you’ve seen them all.
Well there is King Kong and Donkey Kong….
I like the “combining” of “styles” that results from your coloring “decision”… Wait… WHAT!?!?!? All I’m saying is, I like it LOTS!
haha…I get what you are saying. Thanks
You’re tearing it up, Bearman! Love it!
I know this game. Me and my brother played this game 4 hours straight, and beat it.
BEAT IT…I never got passed the 2nd level
Oh but I did love that game.
One of my favs
Never heard of that game. I couldn’t help think that it looked like a biggest loser challenge. Who can make it to the top first.. My money’s on the ape
The lizard has claws to hold on though
Hmmm… Good point. But the ape has ummm….
Ok so maybe the lizard will win
The ape throws bananas too, which is cheating don’t you think? 🙁
Well it is that long since I played Rampage that I have probably got
that wrong but it would have been a good idea nonetheless 🙂 lmao
Well I bet you can guess my suggestion on how to make it better. But you never listen to me!
How about a Rampaging Wombie
You read my mind! Though a ravishing Wombie would be more apropos.
They are always ravishing. Send me a Wombania (er Canada) picture and we can see.
Okay, I will. But you asked for it!
Awesome. I love mixing the photos and comics. I hope you don’t mind if I borrow the idea for some local stuff I want to do. You have inspired me today,
As long as I inspire someone go for it haha
I do remember that game.
I traded games with the neighbor kid for a while. I played his Rampage and then shortly gave it back to him.
A couple of months later he, along with his mother, came over to the house and asked for it back.
I was frustrated and then realized why my mother told me never to borrow other people’s games.
Haha….I make sure to keep records of my friends borrowings h
I would be a whole lot organized about it now.
Why not have a giant Bearman on the rampage too?
No, then the cartoon would only have Bearman on it. 😛
Bearmans are a quiet bunch…we don’t rampage
What the ? Fifth Third tower? What does that even mean?
Finally someone asks
100 years ago the Fifth National Bank and the Third National Bank merged.
I like this Bearman. I have used one like this. The Booger Bears club house is in a real cartoon picture. Great job on the characters.
Thanks JB….Now I need to figure out the right sizing for printing in the future.
Works together great, it’s fun to mix media like that but don’t do it too often. Can’t wait to see what else you come up with in this series.
Thanks David. Love to see what you come up with
This is great, Bearman! All you need now is the Damage Counter and green helicopters. Thanks for inducing a childhood flashback!
I have a thought.
Feed the animals first next time.
It might just be me, but they look kinda pissed.
Toxic waste or something like that
Yes I do remember this Rampage game Bearman, erm just showing my age now me thinks but I actually enjoyed it though when one looks at it now it was rubbish, well as they say little things please little minds 🙂 lmao
Have a great Monday my fine friend 🙂
