Topic: Saniss and Writhyn Present: Croconauts VS Astrogators

Just copying the conversation for posterity and accountability. We can post the images here as we work through them.

[Teague Edit: Colors and stuff. Read it from the bottom up.]

Saniss: I see a Sharknado-style movie.
BigDamnArtist: The thing I love about that is it could be a war movie, or it could be a sitcom.
BigDamnArtist: "They outlasted the dinosaurs. But can they outlast each other?"
Writhyn: Although I guess it's not really about humans. Oh well.
Writhyn: "They outlasted Dinosaurs. What chance does humanity have?"
Writhyn: Another tagline:
Saniss: I love that first sentence.
Teague: point being, "super-duper-thumbs-up," but. first way is funnier.
Teague: this sentence is fun for me in its impenetrability.
Teague: I am all the fuck thumbs over here.
Saniss: Just wait till Teague reads all this.
BigDamnArtist: I fukin love this forum.
Saniss: (When I say I can it'll probably be next week)
Saniss: I can work on a quick draft to have the main elements and text in place and we'll review it together.
Saniss: Sure. Thanks.
Writhyn: btw I'd be happy to help with background stuff (moon, stars, typography) or whatever if you've got a lot on your plate. I'm not much of an artist but I can definitely do that kinda stuff
Writhyn: because that shit is brilliant
Writhyn: And depending on how you like the process, you really should just make a second poster for Croconauts VS Astrogators 2: Tipping the Scales
Writhyn: or Asylum, at least
Writhyn: gains traction, hollywood contacts you with a movie deal
Writhyn: I'll bet if you made it available to buy from a print-on-demand, people would totally dig it
Saniss: I like it.
Writhyn: poetic ambiguity ftw
Writhyn: or "Whichever wins this race, ours is doomed"
Saniss: Heh
Writhyn: "Whoever wins the race, our race is doomed"
Saniss: This is happening. It might take a while, but I'm on board.
Writhyn: *moved to tears* It's beautiful
Saniss: With the moon in the background.
Writhyn: freaking yes
Writhyn: yes
Saniss: Possibly with lasers.
Saniss: What I'd love is an Apollo and a Soyuz spacecraft going at each other.
Saniss: Maybe.
Writhyn: Maybe just mirror this on the left with an alligator holding an "american" flag?
Writhyn: I see it. But I do think we should get an alligator in there, too. Cause of the VS part.
Saniss: With red eyes and sharp teeth
Saniss: Change the stars in the background with crocodile heads
Writhyn: That's awesome.
Saniss: Oh. Now this has got some potential.
Writhyn: and the only obvious differences between the two are: alligators have smoother snouts and concealed teeth.
Saniss: https://s-media-cache-ak0.pinimg.com/73 … b968db.jpg
Saniss: Think I can find one with more style
Saniss: http://www.madrimasd.org/blogs/Cienciay … onaut1.jpg
Saniss: There are several
Writhyn: hm...what's the gagarin painting?
Saniss: Wait, no, crocodile. Alligators are USA.
Saniss: Writhyn> I know I'm gonna take the popular drawing of Gagarin in his spacesuit and replace his head with that of an alligator.
Saniss: Yup, that's clever.
Saniss: Didn't know about the original expression.
Saniss: Holy shit.
BigDamnArtist: *bows*
Writhyn: you win the internet today
Writhyn: plus 5000 for "tipping the scales"
Writhyn: oh. OOOOOOOOOOOOOHHHHHHHHHHHH
Writhyn: with reptilian jaws framing it
Writhyn: ok. A bipedal Alligator and Croc, standing back to back with their muscled arms crossed, with two rockets rising in the background, and the moon at the top...
BigDamnArtist: Croconauts VS Astrogators 6: Tipping The Scales.
Writhyn: so I think we're good
Writhyn: which, to be fair, was brilliant
Writhyn: and USA/USSR
Writhyn: Yeah. I think we kinda exhausted it with the poster ideas
Saniss: (my reptilian lexical field is very limited)
Saniss: Croconauts VS Astrogators 5: "Houston, we have a reptile"
Writhyn: Crocon4uts VS Astrog4tors
Saniss: "Fight the Rebel scum!"
Writhyn: in '50s style
Writhyn: I've been alternating between "The Empire needs you!" and "Join the Rebel Alliance" posters on my PC for awhile
Saniss: Croconauts VS Astrogators 3: Colder Blood
Writhyn: Croconauts VS Astrogators 2: The people they killed...are back for revenge.
Saniss: That kinda stuff. Cracks me up.
Saniss: http://www.2tout2rien.fr/wp-content/upl … ace-11.jpg
Saniss: I'll think about the poster thing. I'd love to study the 1950s propaganda style.
Saniss: Makes me think of a zombie version. "From their graves, they shall rise... And they shall rise high."
Writhyn: "From the swamps of Everglades, and the mists of the Nile, they will rise"
Saniss: I also like the cold blood thing.
Saniss: Cool, that.
Writhyn: Croconauts VS Astrogators: Whichever wins, mankind loses
Writhyn: eh. Yeah. I'll think about it at work, but I'm serious. Make it, I'll buy it from a poster print place.
Writhyn: "Their blood is colder than Space"
Saniss: We need to work on a cool caption. Something along these lines but with a better payoff.
Saniss: "Whoever gets to the Moon first... Mankind is doomed!"
Writhyn: Do it. Please. If you make a sick as poster for a reptilian space race, I will pay to have it printed. One for you and one for me
Saniss: You know, in a 1950s propaganda style.
Saniss: I kinda want to make a poster for this now...
Saniss: caiman. Goddammit, why can't I write.
Saniss: Holy camian, Batman!
Writhyn: IT WRITES ITSELF!
Writhyn: United States of Alligators
Writhyn: Holy carp, that sounds badass
Writhyn: Union of Soviet Socialist Reptiles
Saniss: "Ever wondered what the R in USSR stood for? That's right. REPTILIAN."
Saniss: Oh man, totally.
Writhyn: I'd watch that
Writhyn: It's basically a violent version of the space race, where US and USSR has become anthropomorphized alligators and crocodiles
Writhyn: Fair enough
Saniss: Yes but the caption will sell better.
Writhyn: Isn't space inherently in their names?
Saniss: (in theaters near you soon)
Saniss: In space.
Writhyn: Astrogators VS Croconauts!
Saniss: I DON'T CARE
Saniss: Spacegator should be the name for a bigass mothership.
Writhyn: Since crocs and gators are different species...
Saniss: Croconauts sorta has a ring to it.
Saniss: Yeah.
Writhyn: That's just a mouthful
Saniss: Cosmoreptiles.
Writhyn: Astrodiles.
Writhyn: Astrocrocs?
Saniss: *Croconauts
Saniss: Corconauts.
Saniss: Spacegators.
Saniss: Send them to space.
Writhyn: http://www.theverge.com/2016/5/22/11735 … ator-study
Writhyn: And now its alligators are being replaced with NILE CROCODILES.
Writhyn: lol but yes, florida is a hellpit.

Completely unrelated thing: Could we do similar name coloring in the actual chat? I would make it so much more readable.

Was talking to Holden about that this very morning for that very reason. I think it can be done, I'm fiddling with it now.

Stand back. I am touching the forum on the inside.

Saniss, I whipped up a kinda-grungy mockup of the BG for the INEVITABLE Astrogator vs Croconaut poster: https://drive.google.com/file/d/0B34wSs … sp=sharing

Re: Saniss and Writhyn Present: Croconauts VS Astrogators

Writhyn is eager to see this thing done, but you can hardly tell.

Thanks man! I've been thinking about this, I can't wait to start working on it.
