Painting Parody

Art Challenge


The entries (and results) are in for our Painting Parody art challenge! Let's see the entrants first...

Lobo Mona Lisa "Lobo Nisa" by Yusuf Madhiya - Yusuf parodies the classic "Mona Lisa" in a brutal, Loboesque form! And, eww yuck, what did Lobo do to the artist's arm?

Death of Jericho "Death of Jericho" by Rachel Ehrlich is done after Michaelangelo's "Pieta." Rachel notes that she took liberties with Raven's costume, giving her the old blue one instead of the white she actually wore at the time, since Mary is usually depicted in blue.

Lobo Joker "Lobo's Creation" by Yusuf Madhiya - Here's another great painting parody featuring Lobo (and the Joker)! This time Yusuf parodies Michaelangelo's "Creation of Adam." Gotta love having the chain where the fig leaf should be!

Knighthawks "Knighthawks" by our contest's most reliable contributors, The Brothers Grinn. This work is after Edward Hopper's "Nighthawks" and it thoroughly captures the original while providing a bit of humor. (I always wondered if Batman needed a break after crouching above a gargoyle for hours on end.)

Nightmare "Nightmare" by Christopher Tupa, after The Nightmare by Fuseli. Christopher's painting is well done, and rather inspired. I have to say, this is the funniest thing I've ever seen Bat-Mite in!

The Last Supper "The Last Supper" by Larry O'Keefe, after Leonardo da Vinci's "The Last Supper". Larry is another newcomer to Fanzing, and he is off to a great start right out of the gate.

It's a cliche, but we say it because it's true: They're all good, and it's hard to decide. Our panel of judges went back and forth on it. All six entries were picked as winners by at least one of the judges, and we ended up breaking a tie.

For humor, talent and imagination, we went with Larry O'Keefe's The Last Supper. Well done, Larry! All five other competitors came in a close second or third.

Well done, each and every one of you.
