If you don’t know Ren and Stimpy, then I genuinely feel sorry for you. A 10 year old boy came up to me on the beach, looked at them, said they were really neat, but who are they? I told him about the show, then asked him to go back to his folks, point towards me, and tell his folks “That man says he is going to report you to Child Protective Services for not showing me Ren and Stimpy shows.” Well, it made me laugh…
Of course, I had to make Ren wearing Stimpy’s mind control helmet from teh “Happy, Happy, Joy, Joy” episode, featuring the song (by Stinky Wizzleteats). Which, of course, achieved cult viral status by pointing out the insanity of the pollyanna political correctness of the 90’s.
Someone on Wikipedia sums them up best: “Ren is a scrawny, violently psychotic, emotionally unstable Chihuahua dog, and Stimpy is a fat, stupid, dimwitted, good-natured Manx cat. They are often at odds with each other on the show, though they do share moments of closeness together.”
These photos also show how important lighting is. The one above shows details great because it is in the shade. But it is unfinished, I was still working under the umbrella. Below, it’s finished, but I removed the umbrella and the sun washes out the detail.
