Finally I got my Neopets Random Contest entry done.
My Cybunny disagrees with my team choice but whatever she’s not even paying attention to the Altador Cup.
I had issues with this.  First I tried to take the photo on some actual bleachers, but I couldn’t figure out any possible way to get the bristol board sign to stay propped up mid-air.  So I eventually just used my backyard and struggled with cardboard boxes and duct tape to get it suspended a few feet away from the fence.  That barely managed to stick.  Also it was overcast and I probably would have preferred it to be sunny, but it at least made shadows easier.
Then I took a couple dozen pictures to make sure I’d have a good shot to work with, and took the whole set-up down.  I started working on it and it turns out my video camera’s photo function only takes pictures in 640x480.  So, smaller than I would have liked to work with.
And then of course Neopets can’t handle more than 80k pictures so I had to compress the shit out of it.
Despite all that, I think it turned out pretty okay.
Now I can work on other things that people are bugging me to work on.
