soooooo if you haven't seen the sixth season of futurama, the last episode (called "reincarnation") is split into three segments, each of which spoofs a different animation style. the third segment, "action delivery force" spoofs anime, and features a couple of split-scene cuts (a la old-school voltron and whatnot) with the characters making hilariously dramatic faces.

as a birthday present for my boyfriend, i painted each individual onto their own piece of craft wood using regular old acrylic paints (oooh, faaancyyy), like so:


this is what the pieces looked like pre-paint, just penciled on:


you may have noticed that there is a penciled version of hermes, but no painted version. well, there was one. but my dog ate it. literally. no joke. he must have looked delicious.

some of the colors are slightly off (namely yellows, cuz i didn't have yellow), but whatevs. first thing i've ever successfully painted, so i'm pretty pleased with myself.

individual shots!

HAHA! I never saw it but I can see it, in my head. These are great. I'm sure he was a very excited little boy when he got these. He could have been. If he wasn't then he should be in trouble because these are awesome.
