On this page are my contributions to the exquisite corpses at the most excellent le cadavre/exquise/boira/le vin/nouveau.
That site is now not running (no more new corpses that is), but Shae has started a new site for more corpsing. I should start having corpses there, too.
The most recent corpses are at the top, and favorites are marked by "**".

One of my very favorite ones.

I don't think I was too inspired on this one. I like how Santa's pipe/hand merged into a woman's head.

I went really messy with this one. I like that I used a golf ball for a head/hat.

This one looks great. I couldn't figure out how to extend the strip on the left, since the details were just so messy, so I put in the frame right at the top, and "continued" the gingham below. Fortunately, the frames were a significant part of the corpse, so it all looks good.

Some of my crudest work, but the corpse is nice.

I like this corpse a lot.

I like the way this came out. Nice corpse.

I couldn't really get this to look the way I envisioned. A very eclectic looking corpse.

I like the results of trying to match up the wrappers in this.
0339(3) Feb 20 2006
The strip didn't give me much to go on, and I was short on ideas. Blegh.
0321(4) Jan 3 2006
A rather silly looking corpse, I think.

I wasn't overly happy with my contribution, so it's probably best that it wasn't followed up on...

Meh. I got a strip of muck, so there wasn't much I could do. After extending it, the green in it reminded me of an old image I'd made with POVray with green bumps, so I incorporated that.

This came out great. I used three different Durer works for my section. The strip I got was all black except for a chunk of white stuff on the left and some white blocks on the right. The left chunk had a black line of pixels on the bottom row, so it had a built in seam. I managed to make up for it by adding black lines through Durer's Man of Sorrows. This was actually one of my faster corpses.

I got a mostly white strip with some green stuff on the left and a built in seam on the right. I decided to just be as abstract as possible. I used a slow shutter nighttime photograph for part of it (that yellow stuff).

I really didn't feel too good about my section, but the corpse in toto looks good. My strip was just a bunch of fuzzy color patches, no shapes or lines. I did the usual "extend the strip" thing, and then wrapped the result around POV-Ray cyclinders.

One of my favorites so far, and my most complicated piece to date. A picture of Lilian Gish, a couple old bicycle photos, combined with what I thought was a picture frame

Another POV-Ray one. Umbrellas above a purple speckled planet. I made the umbrellas using corpses of other people, but nobody seems to have noticed...
0197(4) Sep 2 2005
One of my least favorite. The strip I was given had a built-in seem, so there was nothing I could do to make it continuous. I guessed at a "hoof" theme, but guessed wrong. Got a little practice at making "drop shadows".
0188(3) Aug 22 2005
I like this one. The collage method looks good here, I think. Nice smooth, interesting transitions.
0167(3) Aug 15 2005
I didn't have a lot of ideas for this one. I used a level curves graphics that I made a long time ago to filter the strips to get that "ribbon candy" look.
166(3) July 25 2005
After extending the black section, all I could think of was blackboard.
158(4) July 29 2005
A messy corpse overall, and my strip certainly was. Used POV-Ray to make the bird sphere.
** 134(1) June 29 2005
I like the idea of abstract corpses, so my top piece here is just that. Made using a photograph of a gone-to-seed dandelion projected on some grey blobs which cast shadows below them. Nice smooth transition by Mofy to the second piece.

I was banking on the bricky stuff being a giraffe. Since it wasn't it came out pretty well. I had meant the black giraffes to continue smoothly to the left - I don't know what happened.

Uggh. I had no ideas on this one. Abstract, but not very appealing. I guess it at least made a decent connection between sections 2 and 4.
Old edition of the corpse site (before the CMS (Corpse Management System)), before the long hiatus:

This one was a very messy strip, and my GIMP skills were primitive, so I continued the strip in a fairly obvious way, and put the resulting image over women-with-bicycle photos.

I like this one. I really practiced my Photoshop skills here, getting my brother Chris' missing head to meld with that thing in the first panel.

One of my very favorite contributions. Done with POV-Ray, a photo of Buster Keaton, and words from a sign indicating how to use the photocopier in our department.

A POV-Ray created starter piece. Pretty nice overall.

A bit of automated strip extension here, using a METAL basic program, showing a bicycle underneath. The whole corpse doesn't flow very well, but each part looks nice.
