Household Appliances ! Animated or not, infact, any household domestic item (brooms, mops, toasters, etc etc)

Try and keep file sizes to a minimum (as always) and lets see how creative you can be

OK, this is what happens when you put me, Photoshop, household appliances, and a Sunday afternoon together. I've got to tell you folks, it ain't pretty.

Finally, the full extent of my Photoshop skills is revealed--how embarassing.



[Edit: This is the first time I've actually entered a sig contest, and this is only my second sig, so don't be too disappointed...]

Oops..I'm just an apostrophe whore I might fix that up later...

Actually, now I'm lookin at it again, I didn't think it was that ugly. It looked so much better in my sketch book. Arr well.

Not funny? Well, I'm in the middle of assignment hell right now so I'm bound to find strange things funny.

Nice drawing, Drac... that's a pretty forlorn looking toaster, I have to say . Although the idea is a bit odd (doesn't the toaster require electricity to toast food in the first place? I'm confused... ), that is exactly what I would imagine a toaster out on the street would look like. Or at least it is now.

I've always had a thing for toasters. I used to own four of em. They all had different names. I think I still have them in a box down in da shed actually. Have to pull them out one day and make a mini stop motion film with them. Hah! That would be fun.

Well, I was thinking of doing a blender, but I almost killed myself trying to crank out that pathetic toaster up there! If I had any real skill I would have come up with something a little more pleasing to the eye, but everything I do comes out looking either very stiff or very childish. I just don't think I have the artist's eye...

Anyway, here's an idea for somebody who's more talented than I: have your name (or a symbol that represents you) being blended up in a blender. It looks really great in my mind, but as soon as I try to do something with it it turns to crap. I've got the Midas touch, Schitzoboy style...

Then again, "household appliances" isn't just limited to "kitchen appliances." Oh my, I just had a very naughty thought (don't worry, I'm not going to act on it ).

I just couldn't help it with the toaster. I love toasters. Always have, always will.

It was either that or Mr Spam's arch nemesis The Can Opener.

Still I've never really been any good at the whole animated Gif thing, which meant the Toaster chasing a slice of bread idea went out the window. Oh yah, a toaster throw competition came to mind as well but again, me sucky animation...

I'll come to grips with IR one day.....

Edit:

Suho, Don't beat yourself down man. You got some keen skills there. You might have only made two sigs before but their both top notch IMO. Oh and remember, if your having problems with something just ask in the PS forum, were hear to help and learn from each other. And of course, to have oodles of fun. Oodles.

I like that word. Oodles. Just kinda rolls of da fingers don't it. Oodles. Oodles oodles oodles oodles oodles.

Ok, I'll stop now..... OODLES!

OK folks, here's my second (and last) try for this month (I don't have time to be messing around like this! ). It's pretty huge (69k), but I had this idea and I wanted to go with it. It looks pretty goofy, I think, but hopefully you can get a chuckle out of it.



[Edit: Ugh, my regular sig made two animated gifs in this post. I almost had a seizure.]
