Inspiration from the Photoplay by Joshi38 Inspiration from the Photoplay by Joshi38
My entry for the 'Be A Spark' challenge, in the Digital Category.

The theme of the contest was to portray things that inspired you, and I'd say that the things that have most inspired me in my life have been movies.

As such, I give you a picture of yours truly (kind of) surrounded by people/object/etc... from the movies that have truly inspired me in my life. See if you can guess what film is represented by each thing. Some of them are obvious, some, not so much. Hopefully you'll have fun guessing which is from which film.

There are roughly 30 separate films represented here (save for one red herring) and every single thing was painted by hand by myself.

If you're wondering why your favourite film, or more likely, why some huge classic isn't represented here, this is likely because said film hasn't had as much of an impact on me as the others... or I didn't have enough time to do them (I've put in the important ones and most of them aren't from some obscure film no one's heard of... most of them).

This was actually a huge amount of fun and I hope you have fun looking at this (in detail... download! ==> )

Joshi

EDIT

In a splash of inspiration, I've added one final movie reference (which, with the red herring not really counting, brings the total movies referenced up to a nice round 30). Only this one is majorly hidden (and really obscure) and yet fits in perfectly. If you can see it, comment below. First person to find it earns themselves... something... I'm not sure, perhaps a 3 month sub or something.

i like this one, really gives us an idea of what inspires you, you have captured all of the styles of art and its all so nicely blended! im pretty sure that thing on his shirt is from back to the future but i could be mistaken :P 8/10, the only thing i noticed was his left arm looks a bit too colorful for the rest of the picture, still its wonderful. good job!

Thanks. I see now what you mean about his arm, the colour is too intense and warm compared with the rest of him. Thanks for pointing it out. :)

I think I might've found where the hidden reference is, but for the life of me, I can't figure out what it might be.

Hah, this is like a game rather than a regular deviation =P

Too bad I read all the comments above me before even trying to figure out what movies were the images from :B

Yeah, I'm half tempted to try and hide Doom's comment, but I won't, he got their first, he deserves his moment to shine (or was it really that easy?).

Still, there's a couple he didn't get (if you can figure out the one with the sniper rifle, it'll help my ego since I've gotten comments from 3 people who couldn't figure that one out and I'm afraid it's because it looks nothing like the girl it's meant to... see this is why I don't do characters).

And yeah, I tried to make some of them somewhat obscure so it could be more like a game (and also because it's easier to paint a simple object than an entire scene from 30 different movies).

Well I don't really watch many action movies, so if I don't get it it's probably because of that and not because you did a bad job with the girl's face. The only chick with a sniper I recall right now is from the movie Nikita, but she had shorter hair so...dunno really :/

No, not Nikita. Oh well, I'm sure someone will get it eventually.

Evidently, I've edited the picture and added one final movie reference, only this one is incredibly obscure and it's also hidden because I'm mean like that. If you can find it first, 3 month sub coming your way. ;)

Spoiler warning I guess... :p

All right apart from "The Endin Story", close, but no cigar.

The Never Ending Story. It's odd how the brain sees what it wants, even when it's wrong.

I swear the word "never" was in there.

I was wondering about that, I've never heard of The Ending Story. =p

I've got no clue on what the sniper chick is from.

That's a shame, I was hoping that'd be more obvious, but clearly I didn't do a good job on portraying that actress.

The first thing that comes to mind is the animated assassination scene in Kill Bill Vol.1, but I'm pretty sure that isn't correct.

I've added one more movie reference, only this one is hidden and stupidly obscure. See if you can find it and you'll get yourself a 3 month sub on me. ;)
