    Where to even begin...
    • Is dripping Toffee Apple a good shade of housepaint?
    • What made the artist think "this painting needs a set of dentures the size of Texas" ? #dontdodrugs
    • What is that mouse thinking? (squ-eek!)
    • Is the lad in the coffin looking for a hug? ...or his missing chompers?
    • Is the door-to-door axe salesman wearing proper ppe for a visit? #wearyermask
    • Will Crouching-Spook-Windy-Puppet take someones eye out when a breeze kicks up?
    • Why are there no witches? #witchesmatter

    * Please hold off on revealing further game content. Cheers :)

    Amazingly it's almost exactly what I saw...


    ...no, honestly!


  • Moderators, Social & Fun Moderators Posts: 48,672 Mod ✭✭✭✭ Necro


    Wow, try describing that in 10 words :eek:


  • Registered Users Posts: 12,540 ✭✭✭✭ Deja Boo


    Like Buile says, there was quite a bit going on in the Original Pic. All in all, not an easy image to describe in only 10 words.
    M31GtbD.png

    Our first describer, Trigger, who coined "UFU sucking volcano" opts for the realistic over surreal in his description, and says, "Couldn't get everything in, so went for the most prominent."
    Knocking scarecrow holding axe
    Massive ghost, spider, teeth, more decorations


    ...will Hooky the Phantom Balloon be blown away in the wind?
    ...what moar decorations should we expect? ...stay tuned
    :pac:


    alien-4-icon.png Well done summarizing Trigger! :)


  • Registered Users Posts: 3,258 ✭✭✭ Killinator


    I pity anyone having to describe that opening pic :)

    Triggers description: Knocking scarecrow holding axe. Massive ghost, spider, teeth, more decorations.
    vtlR09P.png

    Our first painter, Neowise delivers the goods in this masterpiece entitled "Spectre and the Scarecrow come aknockin'"

    FxulJl0.png

    Here we see Axeman, the footless scarecrow, looking posh in his mourning suit, replete with stovepipe top hat and fashionable poof bodice, accented by the ever so cool "midriff straw" and the heavy mascara all the goth hipsters are sporting this season. Axie has cleaned off the oul weapon and moved on to a fairy lit house (without that pesky cobweb clutter and dripping blood).

    We bid farewell to the bats, mouse and Hookie the wind dancer (who magically mutated into :eek: Willie the ghost.) Arm-y the corpse has been killed off (seems appropriate), while Spidie and the Choppers drastically shrink in stature ...and go on the hunt. #save.spidiepus


    Thumb-Up-icon.png Well done Neowise, our first painter!

    With his newly accredited art critic training, our rookie describer Ted_YNWA assessed the situation with the skill of a master, sharing these insights:
    Ghost with Axe wielding strawman at door. Falseteeth chasing spider.

    Ted's taking bets on the "false teeth chasing spider ending up being a spider with teeth." :D


    l2oNLic.png ... Great job, Newboo'sTed ! :)


  • Registered Users Posts: 11,235 ✭✭✭✭ Purple Mountain


    Trigger's use of the word 'knocking' and Neo's interpretation of it was clever.
    That automatically lead to the door being kept, good job both.

    To thine own self be true



  • Registered Users Posts: 4,822 ✭✭✭ Homer J. Fong


    Falseteeth as one word? Bit of a stretch there!


  • Registered Users Posts: 5,181 ✭✭✭ Lady Haywire


    I'm reeeeeally wondering where parts of my image evolved from!!


  • Registered Users Posts: 12,540 ✭✭✭✭ Deja Boo


    Teds description: Ghost with Axe wielding strawman at door. Falseteeth chasing spider.
    vtlR09P.png

    After careful deliberation, aaronjennings opted to put the axe in the hands of strawman rather than "the ghost holding an axe in one hand and wielding a strawman in the other" #commasmatter

    RESIZED IMAGE:
    dzBgcWK.jpg?1
    FULL SIZE IMAGE HERE

    Aarons colourful imagery includes all the elements of the previous paint, with Strawman assuming a supervisory role (after that unfortunate axe weilding accident severed his knocking arm.) He is now left to ponder the deep questions, "do these jeans make me hips look big?" Mrs Ghosty remains unimpressed with his act of straw-chismo, but stays silent (she has no mouth.) Instead, takes the "I told you so!" stance ...one can't blame her, ghouls can only take so much !

    And "NO!" the humans inside shall NOT answer the door for these larger than life trick-or-treaters, NOoooo, I say! (why? do you ask, well, I'll tell you...) Clever Carpenter Aaron installed a peephole (or is that a doorbell ? you decide)... Thru the fancy window they peer and ring the Garda, warning them of ravenous Gumby (with a sweet tooth) on the loose, chasing after SpidiePoo, their pet chocto-bonbon.

    ...Will there be a "Boss Strawman and Mrs. Ghost" sequel? ....stay tuned for upcoming attractions.



    spy-icon.png ...Brava aaron, brilliant paint !

    Haha. That original pic is a thing of genius.

    Just catching up now, as the pj thing took longer than expected. Laughing already though.
