hey it’s spy. im glad i spent three hours on this or whatever. this is on a 7 x 7” board.
you know what’s frustrating is when your best shit is motherfucking fan art. this is just an under painting but still
E: seeing it in thumbnail form made me realise how huge the shoulder is, so I just went back and scrubbed that part of the silhouette down. you’ll be able to see it in later photos I’m sure.
wow medic that is NOT sanitary
here’s a scout from the same sketchbook page, while we’re on the subject
e: the cutoff at his clavicles makes him look like he has baby shoulders. whoops.
do not go bar hopping with soldier
i’m sure people have contemplated which actors would play what class if tf2 was a live action work. it’s been in my head for a little while, i just wanna know who you’d cast.
Shia Lebeouf as everybody.
On a more serious note, Eliza and I once started putting together a sort of mental live actor cast, let me see if I can remember what we came up with…
Hugo Weaving as RED Sniper, Hugh Laurie as BLU Sniper.
Jason Isaacs as RED Spy, Vincent Cassel as BLU Spy.
Did we get any farther than that? Nathan Vetterlain is still one of the Scouts…
Samuel L. Jackson as a Demoman. He wore a kilt in Formula 51, and an eyepatch as Nick Fury, just put those two together.
Christoph Waltz as one of the Medics, I forget who the second candidate for perfect Medic might have been…
I got nothing else.
Pyro: Margaret Cho [RED] and Yvette Nicole Brown [BLU]
Demoman: Samuel L. Jackson [BLU] and Wesley Snipes [RED]
Medic: Christoph Waltz [BLU] and Stephen Colbert [RED]
Engineer: John C. Reilly [BLU] and ???
Heavy: Ron Perlman [RED] and Daniel Craig [BLU]

Razorback is a classic of Ozploitation horror cinema, the story of two men’s quests to avenge the deaths of their loved ones at the jaws of a giant, mutant, feral pig.
What’s amazing about Razorback is both the directing and cinematography. Both are remarkable beyond belief for this type of film. It absolutely feels like a high-end “A” movie that cut no corners nor spared any expense. At the helm for this impressive feat was Russell Mulcahy, who has directed everything from Queen music videos to the Dale Earnhardt story to an upcoming 3D horror flick titled Bait. He also directed one other little film of note that you may have heard of – Highlander.
Directed by Russel Mulcahy, who also directed Highlander, the surreal cinematography and oddly serious undertone of Razorback is what elevates it from a simple smash-n-grab monster movie to something worthy of its current cult status. The pig itself is a splendid, full scale animatronic model, the sets are ruddy-dusted outback masterpieces, and the acting is far better than it has any right to be.
Why TF2 fans may be interested: I suspect the aesthetics of Razorback strongly informed a lot of set design and palette decisions in TF2, and the character of the vengeful, sharp-shooting old pig hunter (played by an oddly authentic Bill Kerr) is basically an elderly Sniper.
He even lives in a van.
I’ll be streaming this on Sweatshop tomorrow at 6pm PST.
Content warning: blood n’ gore, attempted rape, multiple deaths by pig (including a child), sadism, possible animal cruelty (some of the scenes with pigs + dogs are a little questionable).
Now my pocket demo and I have linked sprays.
I’m going to keep making them for my friends so they can all be sprayed across a wall in a chain and be suuuper obnoxious.
Source Filmmaker has been out for less than a week, and I’m already impressed with all the stuff it can do.
HANDS UP LADIES WHO LIKES FAN ART
Seriousness isn’t the issue at all. TF2 was never serious. What it was, though, was internally aesthetically consistent. Jiggly christmas tree-shaped hats in neon fucking colors, and lazergunz!!!111 with far too many polys and inappropriate color palettes and game-breaking stats really screwed up the extremely effective “look” of Vanilla TF2, not to mention the play. I mean hats are fun and whatever, it’s just that so many of them are incredibly ugly. It’s like endgame WoW shit—everything’s constantly neon, pulsing, smoking, glowing, rotating, and so on and so forth.
New content is necessary to keep old games going, probably, but it doesn’t have to look like a grade schooler’s themed birthday party at a paintball range. There are a ton of new weapons and hats that keep kosher with the game aesthetic, too—the new Spy and Scout shirts are gorgeous, as just one tiny example.
