Battle for the Remote! by Spectra22 Battle for the Remote! by Spectra22
Dib gets a little miffed when I try to change the channel.

Dib: No!  I wanna watch 'Mysterious Mysteries!'
Me: Dib, that's not even a real show!  Here, I'll put on... I don't know, 'Ghost Hunters' or something.

Stay tuned for more Dib in the real world ^^

Well, I've been drawing Zim stuff for 14 years now (holy crap that makes me feel old!), so I've had a ton of practice ^_^  Trust me, my first stuff wasn't very good :D

Could you tell me how to make a paper child?
I'm thinking of making some and stashing them all around my house :D

Yeah, no probs! ^^  For mine I always do a pencil outline first, then trace that onto card stock (get it cheap at most any store).   It's nice and light, but sturdier than regular paper, so you can still use a lightbox for tracing.  You don't HAVE to do this step, but I always like my final drawing nice and clean without lots of eraser marks.  Then I ink it, color it, and cut it out-- I use pen and colored pencil, but use whatever you like.  Then I set up the shot.  For this one I just leaned him against the remote.  Sometimes they're more complicated than this and involve a few different parts I need to set up (like separate arms or legs), and then I use whatever I need to-- glue, tape, gum, ect.-- to make it look right.  Just be creative and think of some cool poses to put them in, and have fun with it; try and think of how the character would actually react if they were that small and in that situation, and how they could interact with your environment.  One more tip: If you intend to do 'Zim' paper children, be careful when cutting them out.  They've got reeeeaaallll thin, tiny limbs!  Some really good scissors are recommended.  Hope this helps a little!

Yer welcome :aww:  OH!  Yeah, one more thing I forgot to mention-- Get yourself an exact-o knife, too.  Those are VERY helpful when it comes to cutting out certain areas.

Dear ol' Dib...:hyper:
The dynamic mentioned in the description sounds like a snapshot of a life with Dib as the little brother. Or as a guest in your home ;p

^_^ That was the idea, at least that's what I gathered from looking at other people's paper cut-out character photos.  That these characters were supposed to be hanging out in the real world and interacting with you like they were visiting from the TV or something.  I just loved that idea.

Yeah, Hi!!  Man, I'm sorry I haven't talked to you in years, along with many other friends of mine -_-  I'm so sorry.  Life got kind of... complicated for a while there.  I hope I can be around a little more often now, though.
