I have a very simple premise for you all. I'd like to have a picture available for my use, an animation to be specific. Sadly, I lack the artistic talent to do so myself. That's where you come in.

I'm placing no specific limit on dimensions, filesize, or number of frames, but keep it reasonable. 400px by 150px should be plenty of room to work with. Compress it nicely into a GIF, but don't sacrifice too much in the way of quality.

The picture itself is simple. I want a Jigglypuff, working at a computer. From there, you have free reign, bounded only by the subject matter of "Site Maintenance." You can have the Jigglypuff do a headdesk, start swearing up a storm (@&*$!!, etc), have the computer burst into flames, get beat with a hammer, I don't care.

What I'm after here is a picture I can use to express general frustration over making something work for the site; the joys of being webmaster.

Make a post with your intent to enter the competition, and edit in the animation when finished. Contest is set to end at the end of April, or when all those who have expressed interest have submitted their work.

The winner and runners up will all be handsomely rewarded for their efforts.

When you said it could be a picture or animation, which did you prefer?

Um, yes. Animate, meaning to move. Anime, meaning some kind of moving Japanese cartoon thing, *slaps head.* And I thought I was slow when it came to technical terms. ;)

I changed it completely. I hope you like it. :D

EDIT: I changed it slightly. Don't worry, I promise that this'll be my last change.

Oh? And are those you're custom sprites? The backround and everything? Jiggz never said to give credit to anyone.
Lol, nice idea-making Jigglypuff go to his computer, it saying some sort of spammer alert and jigglypuff catching on fire. Looks a lot like mine.

Just a reminder that this contest is coming to an end. I'll give it a few more days since there's some people who haven't posted a pic yet.
