Well, since this thread's been pretty dead today, thought I'd show you guys how the coloring's been going on my piece. Granted, "coloring" isn't the right word here. Everything is actually clipped from photos. Some of them are easy to recognize, obviously the sky was sky and the water, water. The Max spores are photographs of rabbit fur, and all the metallic things (Skunkape's ship, or at least the half of it I already filled in, the Maimtron, the black part of the DeSoto that's done, etc) are all real metal.
Some of the interesting ones- the Future Vision is actually a pill bottle cap, Sybil's suit is a gasoline can, and the Statue of LIberty is a kitchen countertop.
I know part of it's hard to see right now- Norrington and Sal in particular are hidden behind the textures. Once they're filled in with their own colors, they'll be visible!
