Okay, here's the deal - I have a website, Balloon-A-Day, that I've been twisting balloons for. Alas, I've slipped behind, mostly because I just can't come up with something to make. I'm used to working by request, after all. And thus, I turn to you!

I've got a fairly long list of things that I can do, which is in text form here: http://balloonaday.com/balloonlist.txt - choose something from there, or come up with something new.

However, I like a good challenge. Feel free to request anything you'd like to see. But I need to ask one thing in return: Keep it clean, please. Don't ask for dicks, or anything like that. I'll just ignore you. I like being able to show it off to family.

Here's a couple of challenges I've done:

Megaman:


Angler Fish:


Yoda:


Edit: Here's the current list of requests - I'll go through them in no particular order.
* Pikachu Done. With added Mudkip and action
* Unicorn Vs. Cyber-Dolphin
* Ostrich see Chocobo.
* Cthulu Done
* Mario Done.
* Goomba
* Ouroboros
* Hypercube
* DNA
* Grim Reaper Done.
* Hot Air Balloon
* Metroid Done.
* Poison Frog Done.
* Elvis
* Gargoyle
* Crow T. Robot
* Done.
* Headcrab Hat
* Facehugger Done.
* Shyguy
* Battle Axe
* Chocobo Done. Also, this one is basically an ostrich, just yellow rather than brown.
* Big Daddy
* Mosquito
* Yawnycat from my avatar.

hah, 3 requests already made - 2 on the site already - Dark Gray Fox, here's the Prince: http://balloonaday.com/2007/10/22/the-prince/

Ms. Manchair:
I'm currently working on the Panda - I've not actually made one before, telling little kids that a teddy bear is the same thing. Which, to them, it is.

So, here's the first draft:


I'm going to shoot for one a day, especially in the case of some of the more complex ones, like the butterfly guitar.

If we think of independent and discontinuous specific time as unified in the self, it becomes the concept of continuity in time. Nitrazepam fields forever.

The only detail I can imagine separating a ferret balloon from a wiener dog balloon is that faint "I used to smell like a festering colon wound" odor. Incidentally, that is the only problem I ever have with ferrets. I got a face full of a natural ferret's anger one time, and I can never forgive that genus (Mustela, very clever).

Late retroedit: Before I even read this thread I was posting in the "wiener dog chews off boy's wiener" thread. EERIE!

Oh boy, how do you make the mouth of the serpent devour its own tail?

Also, this would be awesome, especially if it can do what the GIF can do: 4th dimensional cube.

That's what I was hoping to see. If it's anywhere near as awesome as that angler fish, then I'm not even sure what the next level of awesome is.

That hypercube is crazy though. I think you're trying to kill the OP.

Edit: Once you have inevitably figured out how to mix Ouroboros and the Hypercube ( ), please twist up a version of my brain exploding.

The hypercube would be easy - it's all just straight lines.

The Grim Reaper is really stylized, I might give him a shot.

I can do Mario's face, surprisingly. But I've never done a goomba. On my list-to-do.

If you check out the list I linked in the first post, there's a bunch of stuff on there that people have mentioned - Eiffel Tower, for example. Also, look at my site - I may have already done something you've requested.

Oh, I have an idea on how to make him. It'll just be a big project. There's two ways to do his body, that I can think of. Sorry! Didn't mean to skip yours.

Surely you mean Ouroboros, then. Spuds was a bitch!

E: I'm super excited either way, if you pick one of those... but if you pick Ouroboros, I humbly request that he accompanies a Hypercube.

Sure making the hypercube would be easy, but making it functional wouldn't be. Click on the GIF to see what I mean.
