The Immaculate Jim by dhulteen The Immaculate Jim by dhulteen
Okay… this one is the big enchilada. My work on the Muppet Madness competition [link] actually taught me some important things when it comes to digital painting, and I wanted to use what I learned from that experience on a grander level. This piece took approximately 40 hours to complete and was completely done in Photoshop with a tablet as well as some other tools. Inspired by Michelangelo’s “The Creation of Adam” found on the Sistine Chapel ceiling, and deifying Jim in only the way a real fan ever would, this is the culmination of years of training on my end. The philosophical implications are staggering on this one in my opinion.

WOW! This may very well be the best parody of the famous painting I have ever seen, not only that, but among the greatest fanart ever. It pays real good tribute to Jim Henson himself, the man behind the Muppets, his most beloved creation, Kermit the Frog, and several of his other Muppet characters. He did in fact bring these characters to life, and this picture shows that, not only that, but we have Kermit sitting on a cloud, and a rainbow, symbolizing "The Rainbow Connection". Lovely, lovely, lovely.
