    Revamp - Battle for a Pimp My Character!

    Edit by Arshes Nei - this thread is now "Pimp my character" Post the best sob story you have along with a pic that needs fixing. See who will be the most charitable to Pimp your character. Be aware if you can't convince your fellow CA members to make your character shine, be prepared to be ridiculed


    Well yeah , ive seen divinenibru's Threat and thought i could try that too^^
    I know my Picture isnt that interessting as Nibru but....er....yeah XD
    So that is one of my OC's , hes a Sharkman and a little bit...insane ^^
    I dont think to get that many Replies as Nibru , but its worth trying. Im happy about everything i can get =D
    Best Regards , Jack

    The Things that should remain are the Zigarettes , the tattoo and the Head Design.
    You can also design his Clothes the Way you want =D

    Funny how this guy gets bashed for this but I already know everyone is going to be all over Randis' post. Don't get me wrong, I love Randis' work but I just find it funny how different people doing the same thing get treated differently.

    It's called, 'biter'. An old school phrase. Biting ones style or another person's idea even when the idea isn't dead and buried and relatively new.

    "Everything must serve the idea. The means used to convey the idea should be the simplest and clear. Just what is required. No extra images. To me this is a universal principle of art. Saying as much as possible with a minimum of means."
    -John Huston, Director

    sorry buddy, we'd love to contribute, but as has been pointed out, the Nibru thread was a one off. rarely happens. it was just a moment of genius on behalf of one of our resident pro's that sparked it, and so anyone else trying to get something done for them in the very same style will most likely be denied as its now faux pas.

    seriously, it was like the planets aligned, or somethin like that..

    Randis' is a more creative spin off, this is like the sequel to Matrix.

    Lyrics:
    *moaning, growling*
    Yes, you have met the dangerous 208 year-old uncle of dr. octagon.
    I myself mr. gerbik. half-shark, half-man, skin like alligator.
    Carrying a dead walrus. check it.

    Verse one: mr. gerbik

    With my white eyes, gray hair, face is sky-blue yellow
    Sideburns react, my skin is colored lilac
    My skin turn orange and green in the limousine
    People think Im mixed with shark, drinking gasoline
    Underwater I breathe and let loose on my sleeve
    Walking down hollywood boulevard with a credit card
    Three alligators behind me, feel my skin is hard
    Transvestites, and people watch space parasites
    I left his head in the store, legs in the street
    Body in wilcox, with blood dripping off my feet
    L.a.p.d. through gray clouds couldnt see me
    I first turned rainbow, closed my eyes, watch my brain glow
    People got scared and ranned away they think Im weird
    I was born this way, halfsharkalligator
    Is he weird? ?

    Chorus: mr. gerbik *singing*

    Half-shark-alligator-half-man
    Half man, half shark!
    Half-shark-alligator-half-man
    Half man, half shark!

    Verse two: mr. gerbik

    My vomit fluctuates, covers your skull like protoplasm
    Lightning bugs turn pink, on my tongue catches spasms
    Green elephants, I battle streets with a zebra
    My mechanism is more than dionnes psychic voodoo
    African beads, snakeskins, cold script through you my medical passes
    You cant see, with greedy glasses
    Carbon dioxide, pour right through em with gases
    My description dinosaur
    I was made half-shark-half-man, my skin is like razor blades
    Seven-oh-seven, mr. gerbik
    Verbally no one change my thoughts, animals fly from philly
    My appetites more big its time for wildabeasts
    Adjust my skulls, seven eyes switch hydraulic scribbles
    And shrimps, mack gorillas like a pimp
    Half-shark-alligator-man

    Chorus 2x

    Verse three: mr. gerbik

    In my real world, orangutangs dance for thanksgiving
    With skeleton bones and skunk tails, is my mission
    Holding backward raps to all my power packs
    Babboons clap, and girl horses wanna hit the sack
    Were too bold for ocean water, monkeys sniffin ice
    Contact jupiter pools martians bring my rice
    Im out flyin with purple capes in the twilight
    Oooh ooh ooh, tonights the night
    My oxygen regions, new york to california
    Half shark alligator half man!

    Outro: pbs nature

    It takes a supreme feat of strength to swim through
    The water plows while dragging two hundred and
    Fifty pounds on your back... the crocodiles teeth
    Are designed to seize and hold, not to cut through
    Skin. during all the hours the somber lay in the water,
    But are unable to penetrate the deers tough hide.
    The crocodiles make a few token objections; but in the
    End, give up the struggle.

    Unhappy

    Poor guy

    If the other thred was so good why we cant have 2 of them 3,4, or infinit?
    Please a little of positivism

    I know that the other one was more intresting, and this one looks like an street shark (Btw hahah i whatched those cartoon when i was kid), but the other one looked like Diablo Zombi so--

    I think this idea of "Different interpretations of the Same Thing" it can be a good activity if it was so popular


    heres my super duper quick doodle..

    It has nothing to do with favoritism or hating on other people trying to have fun. We have a "different interpretation of the same thing" every week called Character of the Week in the community activities section. It's a bit more formal, but it's the same exact thing.

    Divinenibru worked out so well because he was kind of like a cute puppy presenting you with a chewed up sneaker for the first time. He really didn't know where to post and was oblivious to how we usually treat things like that. So instead of getting the typical lounge rat cynicism, a pro that rarely posts stepped in and indulged his request. This action warmed the cold hearts of all us lounge dwellers and once again restored everyone's confidence in peace and goodwill at CA.org.

    It was a once in a lifetime thing. Epic threads are epic because they are unique. If you want to go spam the same thread over and over in a frivolous attempt to recreate the big-bang, then go to 4chan. I'm sure they'll get a kick out of it.

    "Astronomy offers an aesthetic indulgence not duplicated in any other field. This is not an academic or hypothetical attraction and should require no apologies, for the beauty to be found in the skies has been universally appreciated for unrecorded centuries."

    I think the main thing was Wesburt wanted to teach him and the rest of us a lesson - that any idea can become great if it's well thought out and skillfully executed. Now the lesson's been learned. Why be redundant?
