    Here's something a bit topical, apropos to this recent development in copyright litigation:



    You'll have to forgive how crappily I covered over the speech bubble - I still haven't gotten the hang of the clone tool in GIMP...

    The importance of having "Fashion" as one of your strengths:

    Nice job on the arm, especially. That was probably the most work to fill in.

    The blowup thread is getting pretty backed-up. But at least the print ad provided some good clean art-source material.

    Decided to give one of these a try, not sure if this should have been a motivator.

    Had to fiddle a little with the image since the motivator generators don\t allow for images that wide, hope it is not noticeable

    Nice one!

    One technical tip: You might want to try using some techniques for reducing the file size (like reducing the color depth) to save on bandwidth -- here's a description of how to do that using the GIMP (note: I recommend trying some of the dither settings instead of "none" as the author recommends).

    At this point, the division into two threads is more a historical relic than anything else, so don't worry about it.

    Something like this?


    Originally posted here. I tried it without altered dialogue, too.

    It's not exactly a motivator - I was trying for something a bit different that time.

    And I recommend GIMP as a Photoshop alternative - it's free to download.

    @TigerHunter: Excellent take on "Outrun"! Now I need to de-coffee my keyboard...

    That hopeless feeling is the feeling which demotivators are meant to evoke.

    I've decided to try my hand at making a Demotivator. Here's my first try:



    I was going to put a caption that says something to the effect of: "Well, Stanley has been doing that to me figuratively since he became Overlord...", but I decided to go the "less is more" rout.
    I seem to have the ability to misinterpret the most obvious of meanings and to completely miss the points of statements for no obvious reason. Just a warning.

    Is there a demotivator generator available that will include the proper art credits?

    I doubt it, but you should be able to save a copy of the image, add them, and host the result on some other image site. (Personally, I just put everything together in Paint Shop Pro.)

    Or if all else fails, attach the credits in text.
