        • Killer job on this! Great concept.Great blend.
        • It seemed obvious, but hey...prat falls do the trick sometimes when you're in a pinch and there's no other gag available to you.
        • Thanks. I'm just disappointed I couldn't find a decent pic of Batman to go with...he's always cut off...guess someone on the camera crew had a crush on Robin.
        • The manufacturer of this photo distortion accepts no liability for arse removing laughter and is unable to compensate the arse-less in any way. Please view at your own risk.
        • Very interestingly done, great idea of putting Robin here it looks real

        • I really liked this entry previously, but it did need something, so I think you're on the right track, but the giant mouth ain't it. It's not funny, visually appealing or difficult to pull off.

          My 1st suggestion would be to re-color or remove the white around the hole to which she is holding on. Second, I'd warp/liquify/whatever your software calls distorting the rope at the bottom so it's not so stiff (you can get away with it when you can't see the bottom or top, but it just looks weird when you can see one, the other or both).

          After that, takng all the blank/negative space and doing something with it is a good plan. You need some sort of focus, though. What quick story can you tell in one frame with the space and scene you've set thus far? The mouth tells me nothing other than you had space to fill, so you filled it in the easiest and most useless way (no offense...just sayin') possible.

          You got 87 hours. Think of a concept that makes sense (or, if you're gonna go weird, go REALLY weird...acid trip the velvet painting acid trip from the 60s/70s weird), and then execute on it (which you obviously can).

          I don't want to give you a concept, because there's no fun in that, but if you want a sounding board on which to bounce off ideas, holla.
