Gmod Far Side Cartoons
I decided to recreate some of Garry Larson's Far Side Cartoons using Garry's Mod for Half Life 2, and this is what I came up with.

I don't know why he's complaining. If I saw someone made a rendition of my cartoons like that I'd be amazed and thank them.

It's hilarious how just a few hours ago, I was talking to someone about how I wished more comics were like Far Side or PBF. Now I have absolutely no respect for f*cking Larson. Sigh...

"any suggestions on music?" yeah hi I have a suggestion. How about after you spend hours constructing your image, you put about 1% of that time into picking out a sound that not only suits your YTMND but enhances it! What the point of a YTMND if the sound adds nothing, or worse, annoys the viewer?
September 19th, 2006
(0)
it loses some of its pizazz without the shoddily drawn characters. But far side ftw.
September 19th, 2006

The translations are awesome. The music...definitely needs work. Might I whore one of my sound loops as a suggestion? http://content.ytmnd.com/content/7/b/3/7b3181d627831a8e309c0bf38b7aeb0b.wav It always makes me think of comic strips, Gary Larson, etc. Used it on http://ytmndtime.ytmnd.com a while back.

great, right down to the backgrounds.
September 19th, 2006

I'm going to dissent and say that the gary larson originals are SOOOO much funnier than the HL2 versions. if the funny is not preserved or enhanced, what's the point? this is all a testament to the true genius of larson's cartooning.
September 19th, 2006
(0)
also the font you used.. not nearly as funny as the deadpan sans-serif of the original cartoons. this ytmnd is an awesome demonstration of how larson's humor was in the subtle details of his presentation.
September 19th, 2006
(0)
Oh please. Gary Larson's success was not due to his chosen font. But they're kinda right, this is more impressive than funny.
September 19th, 2006

Nice
September 19th, 2006

I don't think his success was due to his font, but of course presentation is key. font is a part of presentation. typography is the word you need to learn about.

Call me crazy, but I think you can leave out the original cartoons and just present the gmod ones and it would play out Much Funnier. The FAR SIDE format is well known enough as a premise, showing both (to me) is like telling the joke twice. You've already laughed at the cartoon joke, the new one becomes merely interesting. You basically split the laughs among the two. Just my comedy opinion, 5 stars anyway.
September 19th, 2006

I think I agree with money-gay. It doesn't need the original cartoons, and probably only serves to diminish yours.

just a suggestion no one has mentioned. i agree, get rid of the originals, but also get rid of yours. maybe leave the music, and instead show a screenshot of you deleting your YTMND account
September 19th, 2006

Dr. L337 (gay name) your ytmnds don't even have a 3 rating average (lol) and you're telling this guy to delete his account. lol irony wins.

You copied Gary Larson's cartoons in a way that makes them less funny. Thanks for reminding me how funny the Far Side was, but if you're going to spend your effort on something like this, then at least take the time to spell the creator's name right.

Amazing, you have done an excellent job of recreating some of the classic Far Side comics, and you did it with skill. Not very many people can make GMod comics, let alone good ones. The only thing I noticed that was odd was Father Grigori's pose inside the boat, he seemed a bit small compared to the boat. The inflator STool could aleviate that problem. Also, if you can consistently pump out work like that, might I suggest you move on to PHWonline.com Facepunch is no place for a good comic maker like you.

Since Gary Larson wrote such a respectful request, I think the best option would be to remove the far side comics as I don't think those are necessarily covered under fair use. However, leave your GMOD parodies up, just without the originals attached.
February 8th, 2008

What he said.
February 12th, 2008

That sounds like the most legal option. You can have your parody version, just not the original cartoons (which are not parody in and of themselves).
