This week we’ve got a new canvas launching: Superheroes II: Supervillains. The Superheroes canvas we released back in the Summer of 2011 has been one of our most consistently popular canvases, and as we all know, every good superhero movie deserves a sequel – and a suitably evil rogues gallery. But this canvas came about in a rather unexpected way; it was created by a Say What You See fan.
Way back in July last year, we were contacted by a Say What You See fan called Harry Dyer. He told us that he was a big fan of the app, and that he’d created a Supervillains canvas for us to enjoy, and would we like to see it? Well of course the answer was yes, and so Harry sent it over – and we loved it. You can see Harry’s canvas here:
Now as much as we loved the canvas, we knew that we’d have to recreate it in the house style, and so we bought the canvas off Harry and set to work re-creating it with the help of artist Ryan Firchu, the genius behind last year’s Fantasy Movies canvas. Ryan is an ex-concept artist for the video game company Rare (The guys behind the Banjo Kazooie and Goldeneye games) so he certainly knows his way around geeky subject matter. Here’s a 10 puzzle sample of Ryan’s version of the canvas (believe us, it looks even better with all the puzzles on top!):
The results that came back were simply stunning, and we’re really excited to be sharing this canvas with you this coming Thursday. All your favourite supervillains from the movies are here, located (where else!) in their secret volcano lair. Harry himself loved the results:
“Say What You See was the first app I ever downloaded on my iPhone. I was deeply honoured when I proposed the idea of the super villains canvas to them and they responded. There is nothing better than coming up with an idea, sharing it with talented people and then watching them make it into something incredible. I hope you enjoy the puzzle and i hope SWYS continue to make more!”
This is a canvas by a fan for the fans, so we hope that you’ll support Harry’s amazing efforts by telling your friends all about it. And if you have a suggestion or picture for us, click here to send a mail to SWYS Headquarters, and if we like it, then you too could earn a bit of cash and see your work in a future Say What You See canvas!
