Gulliver and the... Sailors by DovSherman Gulliver and the... Sailors by DovSherman
In this previously lost, recently discovered, missing chapter from "Gulliver's Travels", Gulliver drinks the Lilliputians' entire supply of rum and passes out by the docks. When the Navy discovers Gulliver has taken all their rum, they decide that the least Gulliver can do is to serve drinks to all of them. The next morning, Gulliver wakes up covered in... sailors.

Wow, I am really out of practice! This one took days to finish but I think I'm getting back into a groove now.

I always preferred a Glumdalclitch situation but, it this were perhaps the punishment it would work well.

"Hi, sailor!"

Well, the sailor's unique interests should come as no surprise. You know what they say about sailors leaving for sea duty: 100 sailors go out, 50 couples return.

Dov, I was watching Gulliver's Travels the other day and all I could think of was this picture which has always been a favorite of mine (I enjoy this picture a 1000x more the that movie too)! This picture is truly creative and extremely fun! Anyway, Gulliver looks like he'll ... I mean she'll be a great serving wench for the sailors, haha!

I realize your just getting clobbered with praise right about now, But I really can't help myself but mention how much I really enjoy your work. It's the attention to detail and your complete mastery of digital coloring that I find so very awe inspiring.

Beautiful perspective on the city and on Gulliver and even all the little sailors seem perfectly fitting into the world your creating. Your drop shadows run wonderfully and realistically and I love the knockouts and colored line you've used on her (His) hair.

It's just a wonderful piece over all. I'll stop with all the gushing now. I very much look forward to your stuff in the future. Keep up the good work.

Totally amazing in concept and execution. The concept is very original, and your characteristic fine detail brings it to life. Special mention to the sailors using timber bracing as they stuff Gulliver's left boob!

I suppose that'll teach them to keep all of their alcoholic beverages in containers that easily accommodate giants.

They don't like to advertise it but that's the exact reason that airlines only have drinks in tiny bottles.

Oh wow I must have been sleeping not to have noticed, glad to see you picked back up your paintbrush dov, welcome back and this is an incredible piece!

Love the level of detail in it, especially all the various jobs the sailors are doing to make Gulliver look pretty, the spinning wheel for the curls, the mopping on the makeup and I love the intricacy of the framework for improving his bustline! :)

Just gorgeous, jaw-dropping work as usual thanks for sharing :D

For me, the best part of the piece is the clever concept. I would never have thought of using Lilliput in this genre, but it clearly works.

I was also reminded of a Where's Waldo piece, in that I found myself looking around to see what all the tiny figures were doing. In fact, I think that is a good idea for a future piece; tiny figures up to various TG activities, with perhaps something special for the viewer to look for. :)

WHAT ON EFFIN' HECK, YOU'RE BACK, GOSH DARN AWESOME.

Marvelous picture. I love the creative concepts you put to work on these drawings, and this one doesn't disappoint. It's very nice to see an evolution on your style; the backgrounds are filled with details, and they do nothing but to enhance the experience. Love the clean, crayon-like tone of the town...

Funny how'd they just HAPPEN to have all the necessary stuff to turn a giant man into a giant waitress.

Does this happen fairly frequently to them?

:icondovsherman:
DovSherman Featured By Owner Mar 22, 2010  Professional Digital Artist
It's all stuff they already had. The corset is a ship's sail. The blouse is stitched together from lots of bedsheets. The boobs are just wood, cotton, and a fabric cover. The giant bow is... um... yeah, I don't have an explanation for that one. ;p

Neat pic, though :D

It's not quite isometric. There's a bit of perspective there too. But the high angle is very similar, yep.

I owe you a big THANK YOU Dov.

It was your art that inspired me to upload all my deviations. It was mostly personal stuff. But after I found your DA site in 2007 I realized I should share it.
