What Manny looks like

I don't know why but John Stewart always reminds me of Manny. Does any of you agree?

I can see it, though Stewart's head maybe a little wider compared to Flesh Manny's

Man, I must say, elbiolin drawings are legendary

Hi there. Long time no see.

I did.
And I'm working for one now. Powerful Robot Games.
Hard to believe, huh? Mostly because of where I'm living.
Anyway, the site just update the NEWS and JOBS part so you won't find me on TEAM.
Bye!

I doubt any game companies would care for the box art. Since Grim Fandango is barely acknowledged around Lucasarts.

plus elbiolin just mentioned he/she is working for Powerful Robot Games. This kind of stuff can catch a game companies eye when they are looking through a portfolio, and may even strike up a conversation like "Oh I LOVED Grim Fandango!"

Hence the moral of the story, MAKE MORE GF FAN ART!

Have you guys seen Casablanca, even if you dont like the movie itself (which is not possible!) Grim Fandango players will have fun seeing the connections between the two, especially the first part of the movie at "Rick's" and Rubacava.

Yes, the line between Manny and Rick has been drawn many times


We may have years, we may have hours, but sooner or later, we push up flowers.

Well while we're on the topic of who the game designers probably intended these charaters to be based off of, how about Sal as Che Guevara?

In our media studies classroom there is a casablanca poster, although i have never seen the film, i can relate all the characters to someone from grim fandango.
Hold on ill see if i can find it..

EDIT: Here it is

From Top Left to Bottom Right: Police Cheif Bogan, Hector, Domino, Sal, Haha Glottis, Meche, Manny.

You should watch the movie. After that you would associate that third character with a completely different character from the game.

EDIT: See if you get it

I just edited my previous post. Since you haven't seen the movie, you can try and guess if you get which character is being referred to. It's so much fun to spot bits that GF borrowed from Casablanca.

Thank you for posting your artwork, elbiolin! Your interpretations of what they looked like when they were alive are absolutely amazing.

I'd like to ask for your permission for something: may I please use some of your GF fanart for icons and such over at LiveJournal? I would give full credit to you. Rest assured that anything featuring your art would be tagged/watermarked to identify that YOU were in fact the one who created them.

Either that or Ren from Ren and Stimpy.

I imagine Manny as a sort of "Ricky Ricardo" style guy myself. Glotis is an older version of John Belushi

I was reminded of this thread out of nowhere and realised I had lost all of elbiolin's amazing pictures when switching to a new computer. What a relief and surprise to see that they're still up after all these years! And just as great as before.

Well, it's been a long time! Yesterday I was updating my blog and found some Grim Fandango pics in an old CD to upload and today I heard about GF remaster for PS4 and came here to look for those pencil illustrations I did some years ago.

I don't know, there's too much to say. It amazes me that VampireNaomi, like she says, still has my drawings and also, for those who said "nobody's interested on old games", I've been on three diferent videogame companies since then and I'm on the fourth now. Nobody saw coming games on mobile devices and a love for pixel art and flash social games back then. So it was a surprise for me too.

Anyway, just beacuse of the nature of this thread I'll let you with the link to my blog just in case you wanted to see something of the work that I was doing on the last years.
Take care!
