The Holophoner by pogopuggie The Holophoner by pogopuggie
Most views to this image come from people google searching the word 'Holophoner'. There is an explanation to what one is below, just for you.

I made this in Photoshop 7.0 a long time ago and the only reason it remains in my gallery are for community and improvement measuring reasons. Moved to scraps, because it is a scrap.

Phillip J. Fry woos Turanga Leela with the Holophoner's art.

Most people are familiar with the 'last' (before first cancellation) episode of Futurama "The devils hands are idle playthings" but this one was actually inspired by "Parasites Lost" for me that one gave off a much more romantic atmosphere.

For those who don't know what a Holophoner is:
A holophoner is an instrument made up by the creators of Futurama. It's much like a clarinet with an imaging device attached to the end. Playing the instrument properly will produce melodic sounds and accompanying imagery depending on the focus and control of the player.

Oh Parasites Lost was an amazing episode. The holophoner scene was so beautiful and you definitely did the imagery justice! It's beautiful. I was a bit disappointed in the last episode that the holophoner music wasn't as romantic as it had been in parasites lost, but the very last scene completely made up for it.

Again, love it!

:aww: It's mushy and gorgeous, every time the holophoner pops up you know there's going to be some warm-fuzzy content :giggle:.
Even though the music wasn't as romantic I loved the whole opera enough to watch it so often I can practically recite it :blush:
So happy you like it!

I love it! So whimsical:)
I used to watch Futurama when I was younger but I recently 'rediscovered' it, and I'm completely obsessed...I loved both of the holophoner episodes, Fry's so sweet! In his kinda dumb way:aww: Can't wait for the new eps!
But yeah, sorry I tend to go off topic...what was I saying? Oh yeah, I really like this pic, it's a totally different style to see Fry and Leela in, and the effort you put in was completely worth it! Instant fave:D

I'm so happy you finished this!! I remember seeing it in the February art thread before I'd made any submissions and I was really hoping you'd finish it eventually. I see you fixed Fry's arm too! Only thing is I'd imagine Fry having a bigger nose and a lump on the bridge, because I think those are some of his character's defining features. He looks a lot like my brother in that sense. In fact, my brother dressed up as Fry one Halloween, and it was indeed a perfect fit--but I digress. I think this is absolutely :awesome:!

I fixed those shitty arms up about a week after i put that up, i couldn't stand them anymore haha. but ...yeah he had a bigger romany nose and as I kept working on it it just -shrank :(. He caught shrink nose. heh up close in the pdf there are bridge definitions that don't translate to this size but MEH! hehehe maybe one day I'll come fix this bastard and everything that's wrong with it... chances are that I actually will too :hug: awesome input, thank you!
lol@'but I digress' I WILL DESTROY YOU!!

OOH! Thank you for faving also hehe :excited:

It's quite possible that you're a bigger fan than I am! Is there any episode you can't quote? haha!
Yes :aww: "He's TOO grumpy!"

We're gonna argue about who's the biggest Futurama fan? It's Fry versus Melllvar (note the 3 Ls) all over again :p

I've never seen a snail that's too grumpy.

And the episode I have no quotes from is "Hell is other robots" but I can sing the entire torture song... well not sing, but certainly mutter in my irritating voice.
