Help Me With a Cool Graphic

Postby The Inanimator on Sat Jun 03, 2006 2:55 am

I made the marinara FSM with a graphic in mind that I could use some help with. I want to make a wallpaper with FSM floating with "Obey" spelled out as if FSM wrote it on the screen with his noodly appendage. I could do it digitally but it would never look as good as if it was actually spelled out with tomato sauce.

All I would need is a photo of "Obey" smeared on a window with a white piece of cardboard or foam core taped to the other side of the glass, (paper might be too translucent). I don't have the resources to do this without making a fool out of myself, (Imagine if you walked by someone writing "Obey" on windows using tomato sauce).

It would look something like this but with way cooler text and I'll drip a blob on his appendage tip:
Image

If you do this keep in mind the composition in the image where it's a large "O" an "y" and a small "b" and "e" to leave space for FSM. Also, regular tomato sauce might be too runny so tomato paste might be better, although a little runny is good, it's supposed to be intimidating :wink: . I think this could be a kick ass graphic if I could get a little help.

Thanks,
The inanimator.

Hmm, I'm having a problem with this looking a bit too threatening. I don't think that the FSM means to be so scary. Is there a way to make it more friendly? Maybe lighten the sauce to a merrier orange color around the edges so it looks more saucy and less bloody.

There are threatening depictions in every religion. This wouldn't even be that bad. Argumentum ad baculum, it's a powerful thing. How can we convert God fearing Christians without it?

They'll make good FSM fearing idjits. No religion is complete without its own branch of zealots.

I still think we should let the other religions have their idjits. y'know, make FSM get the good genes, and the others the not so good, so soon we'll be the only religion. not by conversion or genocide, but by our good buddy 'natural selection' :D

brilliant plan, eh, no?

Use a scrap window pane. You can do it on that and lay it on white (fillin whatever material here) and take a picture without messign up your window.

Ok, help me think of something other than Obey that can be used in the same way? If FSM could say one word to the masses what would it be?

Depending on the branch of the faith...

"Educate." (Bobby's original letter/revelation)

"Reason." (The Gospel) -- or "Cogitate" if you want 'em all to rhyme

"Tolerate." (Pastafarianism as developed in this forum)

I like "TolRate" with the "R" backwards.

You could use a sheet of plastic, such as a cheap clear shower curtain. :shellfish:
