Working on a LEGO minifig going to his punishment: death by lighter.

I know the toque needs some work. Figured if I didn't post this, I'd never keep working on it.

Tommyboy, that seems way too large to be a sprite, you avatar is a good example of a sprite. Also the canvas size limit is 150x150. Sprites are usually small, nothing but a static object or character. like this

also, I think a lighter counts as "an existing object just used as a weapon"


I'll post mine so far for the lulz

not too inventive, but w/e

S.P.E.R.M. (Super Powered Erection Ray of Multiplication) A ray gun used to impregnate your enemies! All you have to do is repeatedly pump the bottom part like a shotgun until it's fully loaded, then a burst of nano-molecular cells and sperm explodes on, and into your target. Using advanced technology, this gun not only impregnates your target, but speeds up the pregnancy sperm build-up process, making your enemies either die in pain from birth's process, or rendering them unable to do anything of aggressive nature (aside from screaming and yelling mean statements) until the baby is born. :D
Tommorow never comes why wait for it?

Ha ha, Mine would probably be pretty painful to smuggle in, but here is my WIP

What do you think? I call it the Air Hornet.

I don't have time to be entering the challenge, but a goofy idea did pop into my head that I wanted to flesh an animation draft out for. Wasn't worrying about canvas size/ratio since I'm not planning on doing it this week.

I give you... THE MISDIRECTIONINATOR

Confound your foes with a large zooka of a cannon aimed right at them! Confuse them when household animals launch out of it at lazifying speeds! Lock in the suckerpunch while they mock your fuzzy bullets with a 20 ton anvil instantaneously pooped into existence 30 feet above their heads! Zowie-wow wow.



:P

Rain marrowbone jelly and meaty goodness on your enemies with the fearsome pocket sized "Bonerang Bomber".  Straight from the Atari 2600 school of doodling.

Hopefully this one is in the rules. Big ogre-type guy using a chain with a skull at the end of it.

Okay, changing my entry, now it is a gun that transforms your enemy into energy for the gun, so as long as you have enemies, you have ammo.
For the smuggler bonus, it comes with a cake-shaped box to have a friend being in.
