    THEME:
    There's no doubt that everyone here loves X-Men: The Animated Series. It was THE show of the 90s and to this day no other cartoon has come close. The challenge is to create a manip by merging the TAS world into the movieverse. As in giving the movieverse characters their costumes from the cartoon and making it look believable. In X1, Cyclops said to Wolverine, "Well, what would you prefer, yellow spandex?". Let's see if we can prove him wrong.

    You can do a variety of manips whether its just costuming or reenacting a scene from TAS with or without the TAS costumes. But there still has to be some indication that it's based on the cartoon.

    Recasting certain actors are allowed to better suit the TAS personalities. You can also cast new characters that where on the show but that were not in the movies.

    Please do not use action figures, statues, cosplay or comic art in your manip. You can use certain parts of them but not the entire thing. For example, you can use parts of Wolverine's mask from an action figure but you can't just paste Hugh Jackman's head on the action figure. Also, I'm afraid to say but manips based on X-Men Evolution is not allowed. Not even that crappy pilot Pryde of the X-Men from 1989.

    Remember this is supposed to be fun. Be creative and take your time. :up:

    I'd say the swimsuit theme was harder but maybe that's because I had to do everyone :oldrazz:

    If you actually want to come out with something good-looking and not over the top, I think it is. The line between corny and badass is very narrow in this case.

    well it wasn't that crappy at the time. But looking back at it I'm like :whatever:

    well you could use parts of the statue but just not the whole thing. It's so tacky when someone puts an actor's head on a statue and say it's a manip.

    You're right actually. Cuz I'm looking though pics and realizing that it might not work. I got too carried away after doing my AoA manip.

    But the costumes don't have to be exact. You can alter it and make it look like something ppl can actually wear. The problem is the colors.:csad:

    I think the best thing to do is start with a nude model and then paint the clothes on them. Thats what I'm thinking of doing at the moment.

    That's what I thought too. That requires some time (a lot of time), at least for me.

    Neto, one question: you say we can recast and all, but you say movie characters. Does this mean no Gambit?
