"Paintings" of some favorite BBM scenes
« on: October 28, 2006, 07:11:51 am »
Our BetterMostian friend Toast has created 27 "paintings" of some favorite BBM scenes, one for each letter of the alphabet (plus a title painting).  It is posted on the ABCs thread, starting here:

http://bettermost.net/forum/index.php?topic=462.msg76452#msg76452

This is so beautiful!  Thank you, Toast!

Aw Shucks, Clarissa (Ellemeno) 'Tweren't nothing,
but here is a collection of some of the images I have done,
mainly for our posts at the ABCs (in it's 528th round and still going strong.).

In all fairness I have to admit that my computer created the images you see here, but I had a great headstart with the images created by Rodrigo Prieto for this movie you might have heard of:  Brokeback Mountain.



I love that movie and I hope it shows.

Thank you Toast (and Clarissa for starting this thread)!   :-*

It's wonderful to see all of your pictures together like this.  You have a talent for revealing the emotions in a scene as well as its sheer pictorial beauty.  These make me love the film and its characters even more, if that is possible.   8)

These are very beautiful and emotionally poignant. I'll be using them as the focus for my next Meditations on Brokeback Mountain. (another 27 down the hatch), three-hundred something left to go to reach 365.

Thanks folks for all the nice words
but when you start with frames from such an emotional film as Brokeback, the emotion is already in the picture.
I enjoyed doing them and I hope it shows.

MMMmmm maybe I should try some other scenes.
Thanks

Here comes a *bump* for Toast's fine art.

I can't believe I haven't commented on your pics yet. They're beautiful, amazing, poignant and truly a wonderful homage to Brokeback Mountain. Thank you Toast for sharing them  :-*.

And I'd definitely be in for some more .....

do lovely work...You know the scene, that i would love to see...*no pressure.  its one of my
favorites, even tho it is a very simple one...the moving to higher ground of the Back of Ennis, on his horse with the mules...I love that so much...  Thanks again publicly for allowing me to use your beautiful
picture in my signature.......                                                                        janice

Hey Janice !!
I think your thoughtful posts give my picture KNASH'S PICTURE a pride of place.
Looks good on you.

You have a great idea Janice
I have done the scenes that mean a lot to me
but why not send in some suggestions about scenes that you all love and would like to see 'painted'
So go ahead and I'll check in and make a list of meaningful scenes to present here.
That could be my belated New Year gift to you all.
Toast

EDIT EDIT EDIT EDIT EDIT EDIT EDIT EDIT EDIT EDIT EDIT
Janice and I have finally been told where her image came from
I actually gave her 'permission' use the aint_queer image, but later couldn't find proof that I had made it
Now we find out from knash that it is his fine creation.

^^^ oh, the little drawing in your sig line, that's something i did back in the fall of 06.. :D ;)  here's the original sketch before i colored it.

but i LOVE toast's fabulous manip "paintings"! i commented on them yesterday when i came across the thread.. just beautiful.

Sorry knash that I took credit for your work.

Here are his original images.

He calls this the drawing by Knash, and I say it's beautiful.

And here's the sketch by Knash - so cool.

wow, these are just great, Toast!

i love your use of color and how it can bring out the nuances of some of the darker scenes, like the faraway bar scene with jimbo. very beautiful stuff, i really liked the siesta bed, john twist, joe on the phone, the fireworks. the one with ennis and his horse looking outside of the lonely house is great too, you did such a great job at choosing some unusual and interesting shots! musing2 is also superb, i love the coloring so much, and the sledding scenes are cool too. i'm glad you posted these -- i'd never seen them before! thanks...

also, what progam do you use to acheive these effects? i haven't figured out a way do do such interesting textures in Photohop. i'm thinking it must be Painter?

hi toast, no apologies needed! it was just a mix up! ;) thanks for posting my ginormous pics, and for the info on the program you use. i don't have paintshop pro... waah...

so -- are you taking requests? one of my fave scenes i'd like to see you do is when aguirre steps out of the trailer to say, "get yer scrawny asses in here pronto!" there's a shot of him witih his hand on the door handle, and there's a bulletin board in the background. i think they way you amp up color to bring out detail would be cool with that shot (kinda like that scene where jack's walking to go talk to jimbo).

another scene, LOL (i'm getting greedy) is the thanksgiving table at monroe's. i did a version of that with my squiggly style, but i'd love to see what you come up with with the virtual painter add ons. that shot is also very rich in textures, with alma looking upset, ennis uncomfortable, and junior and jenny doing their best to bring back a little normalcy. (monroe's not in that shot, but the turkey is there, as well as the lamp. haha).

cheers!



 :D

End of the pics as I show them.





              Here is another great metaphor in art.  The ashen greys and solumn coloring here portrays very well the
burned up relationship.  With the only thing still in evidence is the ashes and washed out life.   Very evocative.
Great work.

It's high time we looked at these paintings again. They bring back such lovely memories.

And Toast has been away from these pages for 10 years! I miss him terribly and think of him quite often. He always told us he wasn't long for this world, still, I can't help but hope he's still around, just gone beyond Brokeback.  :'(

Does anyone have anyway to get in touch with him, and see what's up?


Tell him when l come up to him and ask to play the record, l'm gonna say: ''Voulez-vous jouer ce disque?''
'Voulez-vous, will you kiss my dick?'
Will you play my record? One-track mind!

I take it you found something out that was unpleasant?

Okay, I tried sending him an email. It bounced back.

He hasn't been active here for nearly 10 years.  :'(
