Real Ghostbusters Flip Side by UnknownX Real Ghostbusters Flip Side by UnknownX
Since it is the Ghostbusters 25th Anniversary I wanted to celebrate it and The Real Ghostbusters' DVD collection that came out sometime ago.

This is the Ghostbuster episode I remember the most as a kid and was one of my favorites.

RGB-#92 "Flip Side" Season 3
Investigating a bizarre tornado in Central Park, the Ghostbusters are tossed into another dimension, a strange place that is the exact opposite of New York City. In a world populated by ghosts, the heroes must evade capture by their own ghostly counterparts, the human-hunting Peoplebusters!

The synopsis was taken from the booklet provided with The Real Ghostbusters Complete DVD Collection.

In the future I hope to do more of these for each Real Ghostbuster episode. For those of you wondering how many episodes are there, there are 134 episodes and 13 Slimer! episodes. Enjoy!

Flip Side is my all time favorite episode. You've captured their look very well. The comics have recently incorporated the idea of the Peoplebusters and they actually have a version of Winston. I know he didn't go with them in the episode but I always wished he did (Winston is my favorite character) Enough of my babble, great drawing and keep up the good work.

I usually just draw and ink on a piece of paper, scan it on the computer, and color using Photoshop CS4. Most of the drawings in my gallery are of the same process.

Great, I first thought you were using illustrator or the pen tool in photoshop to ink it and then color it in photoshop.
I think that's the best way to keep the drawing very sharp or is there another way to make it better?

In a program like Photoshop or Illustrator it would be best to ink digitally to get very clean lines. Even my scanned inked art work has a bit of white speckles when viewed at closely. Using a Wacom tablet and the pen tool to ink in either Photoshop/Illustrator would have the best outcome. Personally I like paper and pencil/pen. That is why I am saving up for a Cintiq where I will be able to draw directly on the screen in the program.

Do you convert your scans in Illustrator with live trace?
That's probably the fastest way to make your scanned drawings into vector drawings.
Yeah, a Wacom tablet is the way to go but the one you mentioned is very expensive but probably the most enjoyable way to draw things.

I might try the method you described in Illustrator... Don't really use it at all since I am more comfortable with Photoshop but I will give it a shot. By the way I feel a RGB piece is in the making and will come out this month... Just a bit of a heads up.

Yes, I am one of the RGB nerdettes who has seen every single episode. I have been a fan of the show for 20 years. This is a really well done piece in that you have drawn the 3 "live" characters in your own form, but they are recognizable, and the 3 "dead" ones look just the way they did in the episode. I do look forward to seeing the entire series of episode-inspired drawings. In fact, I wish they had done title cards like this for the show.

It would be cool but, I think with the budget that they were working under it was easier/cheaper with the black backgrounds and text. Glad to know there are some female RGB fans. You go GIRL!!

That show was one kick-ass cartoon. It was intelligently written and still holds up after more than 20 years. Not very many 80s cartoons can lay claim to that.

True, true. Some of those writers work in the movies and comic book industry like J. Michael Straczynski. Having the box set has all the cool interviews and art that was well worth the price. Good times...

Oh yeah, I remember this episode. :D Loved the Real Ghostbusters when I was a kid (I spent much of my formative years wanting to be like Peter Venkman); this brought back fond memories.

Totally know what you mean. That's why I had to create this piece to commemorate that awesome episode. It was one of the episodes that my dad taped which I thought was the best episode of all time. Hope to do a picture for each episode since I watched all of it on DVD. It will be a slow and tedious process but well worth it in the end I think... Good times and glad you like it.

It's one of my personal all time favorite Ghostbuster piece I've made in a long time. Thanks for enjoying it and as I have said more to come in the future. Translation: When I have the spare time to do so.

Appreciate the praises. It might be a while until I get to the others since I will be graduating and have a lot of work to do. After wards though I should be able to do more. Glad you liked it.
