Hey, remember when I said I would do a Boogerman fan art contest? Well thanks to me changing ideas three times and much waffling, I finally present you the results of my confused efforts. The contest isn't happening, but let's look at what we got.
First, I had contacted people on Deviant Art who had posted Boogerman fan art unprompted. Let's start with them because they are the true fans.
hip hip hooray for nostalgia!!! well since we are visiting memory lane i thought we'd take a nice stroll down boogerman land!! we'll have a "pick and flick adventure"!!! yes here he is in all his nasty glory :D hope you like it... farts are funny
Obrigada, Denisio. É muito bom relembrar coisas que marcaram nossas vidas. O Boogerman me proporcionou muita diversão e faço questão de homenageá-lo com desenhos. Abraço!^^
Aaaand... that's it. Only two people wrote me back to tell me I could use their art. Hence the half-assed idea of a contest here, which in the end won't happen (but don't worry, those who participated will get compensated for their troubles).
Triforcebun was the first to send me his art, and he didn't just send me one, or two, but FOUR... arts!
In his words:I was first exposed to the gooey glory of Boogerman in some revolting multi-page ad involving a long, cartoony booger with various things stuck in it. It wasn't until about a year later that I played the actual game on my cousin's Genesis, and my ten-year-old self couldn't believe the majestic, Ren-and-Stimpy-esque stickiness flowing forth onscreen. I last caught a glimpse of this phlegmatic flamboyance in Clayfighter 63 1/3, where our loogie-hocking hero threw down against Earthworm Jim and Sumo Santa. If video games were a family tree, Boogerman would be the creepy, unwashed uncle, and that's how he likes it.
Secret_Tunnel followed suit after asking me if Shops were acceptable. They indeed are! So here is his inspired take on Garfield minus Garfield.
In his words:Being held prisoner in Auschwitz, the only two things that got me through the pain were the weekly Garfield comic strips and Boogerman on my Super Nintendo. Ever since then, I've been searching for a way to repay my two lifelong heroes. Boogerman Week has finally given me that opportunity.
Secret_Tunnel is not the only one with photoshopping skills. Look at what came out of the imagination of kriswright.
Carlosrox participated as well, and here is entry, finally!
And finally, latecomer Jamie Pogue offered us his version of the classic hero (lol) in his own style.
And that's it! Sorry for the relatively bland page. It's already been surprisingly time-consuming to put up! I hope you appreciate it, and give those artists their dues! Especially given the source material they had to work with, haha!
