Exquisite Corpse 2


Log in to view the full-size image
Caption / Directions
For those of you not familiar with the process known as the "exquisite corpse", here's how it works:

You start with a base image, seen on the left. The first person in line to work on the corpse takes the bottom 200 pixels of the first image and uses them as the top of their image. That person's entry should be the same width as the previous image (in this case 500px), though it may vary in height. The next person in line takes the bottom 200 pixels of the previous entry and uses them as the top of their entry. Rinse and repeat for however many images are involved.

Once the contest has run its course we should be able to overlap the entries so as to create one giant image. Check out the first Exquisite Corpse graffiti, from late July.

If you want a turn, post "I got next" or something to that effect in the comment box at the bottom of this page. All other comments should be made in the forums thread.

Voting will be set to begin once the entry limit is reached. The limit will be 15 entries this time, and the 15th entry should attempt to tie back into the top of the first entry.

Again, if you have any questions or comments, please refer to the thread. Have fun!!

Nice idea and execution. Love the shadow in the back which gives it the little extra.
Grabthar 10/19/05 - 05:46 PM
When the original first went up I was not the least bit inspired. You have gotten it off to a great start.

Well since I'm used to playing off Jango's entries already, I guess it's only fitting...

I got next!

Ha! If I remember correctly, I was following your entries.
JangoFett 10/19/05 - 04:37 PM
I admit I saw the face not the first time. Nice!
Grabthar 10/19/05 - 05:46 PM
I didn't notice the face either, until I looked at the combined chops that you put together. Then it jumped right out at me. Very cool.

I made the mistake, last corpse, of working on an entry before calling next and got bumped. Glad to see you did not suffer the same fate. Very Nice.

The candy corn spaceships are waaay cool!
JangoFett 10/19/05 - 04:38 PM
Hmmmm... candy. Now one doesn't even have to stand up to get some.

: Whoa. I expected something different after mine but that's sweet!
Grabthar 10/20/05 - 04:53 AM
I was all set to turn it in to an upside down moonrise/space sort of thing. But then thought that angle had already been played enough, and more creatively at that.
PegLeg 10/20/05 - 04:19 PM
I thought the next one (when I didn't know it was you) might make a pillar out of the right part. But I really, really like that smoke.
Grabthar 10/20/05 - 05:02 PM
Groovy!

EDIT: D'oh, didn't see the dates -- minor detail. So no strange timestamping afoot...

That's so beautiful how you took series back to the candy corn element.

You've got a real gift for putting your ideas in pictures :)

Speechless.
Grabthar 10/22/05 - 05:07 AM
Such imagination! I love it!
Dali's Llama 10/22/05 - 12:09 PM
So that's how they make candy corn. Candy Corn is People!!
JangoFett 10/22/05 - 01:24 PM
Soylent Corn now available at your local grocer.
fray 10/24/05 - 10:16 PM
it's moving. in my mind. but it's standing still. WTF? You are amazing. this evokes such dynamic participation by the viewer. the details are outstanding (the drops of red paint on the rollers!) and the concept is flawless. If grafitti's gave a 10, this would be it.
khonshu 10/24/05 - 10:25 PM
