Nowhere, Kansas by manwesulemo Nowhere, Kansas by manwesulemo
Sorry I haven't posted anything in a wile but I've been really busy, thankfully I got some time off during the holidays. I wanted to do something different this time, so I decided to do a scene from one of my favorite cartoons off all time "Courage the Cowardly Dog". I tried to change things up to make them more realistic but I still wanted to keep it somewhat surreal.

nowhere is supposedly a depiction of Kansas during the Dust bowl of the 1930s huh?


or is it an area in Kansas that DID NOT recover from the dust bowl?

It is the fictional town where the characters from "Courage the cowardly dog" live in.

yes i know that but im just basing it off the fact that the real kansas is not a desert (but became one during the dust bowl).

Oh OK, I lived in Kansas for some time and it was always green so I think you were right that maybe the creators of the show based it on the dust bowl.

that is and always would be a good point. since I've seen many photographs of farmhouses during that time period.

and the episode "The house of discontent perfectly illustrates the situation that many people in Kansas during the dustbowl faced: Inability to grow food due to poor farming methods that turned the soil into dust.

There should have been an episode in Courage the cowardly dog where a dust storm as big as the ones in the dust bowl hit nowhere Kansas.

This is truly amazing, but remember the episode "Spirit of the Harvest Moon" where Eustace struggled to grow any kind of vegetation, so here I see that he succeeded :D

I have found my images being used in strange places such as a french radio station, but most of the time they credit me so I don't mind, this time however they didn't do that so thanks for the heads up :)

This is very good! I know there is a town/city named nowhere SOMEWHERE in Europe. Now if a new town was to be made in Kansas, let it be nowhere!

This is beautifully well done. The realistic look and feel of it leaves me astounded. This is by far one of the best throwbacks to an old Cartoon series ever.

I used Cinema 4d to make most of it and Photoshop for compositing and touch-ups.
