ha, I love it! I was actually planning to create something along these lines, with cartoons of all the characters, but you did it much better than I could. I love all the little details, even in the background. Nice work!

they're not remaking it, they're making a prequel to it with the Norwegian camp being the focus.

I'm very surprised this doesn't have many fav's!
I really enjoy how you got each character in memorable moments.
They all remind me of different scenes of the film with important and specific details.
VERY well done!!! How long did it take you to make this piece??

Thanks. The major influence was those great movie posters that Jack Davis, Frank Frezetta and others used to create for screwball comedies of the 60s and 70s. The title should be "It's a Mad Mad Mad Mad Thing" but Deviant Art kept rejecting it for having errors. Oh well. I'd say it was about 40 hours of work. I spent an hour or so sketching individual elements with old fashioned pencil and paper just to germinate the idea, then a very loose layout sketch in Photoshop. Then ink, color layout and details.
