Re: Toast is super bread


We're all thinking it, but let me be the one who dares to say it. Toast is super bread.

Look at bread. Ordinary. A bit floppy. Pale.

Now look at toast! Super-powers: it changes costume in the toaster, it can fly (if the toaster is spring loaded), it's burning hot, and it can save any meal.

Here are some details:







This is six colors on blue. (Toast texture painted, not a photo) Please check out all the fancy schmancy details in the BIG VERSION here!


Thanks for looking! Please vote if you like this design

I like the addition of the "mask"

dont know how i missed this! real nice job spirit! i love the buildings and the toast on the ground, part of me wishes the toast in the sky was simplified like them, but the burn mark over the eyes like a mask is brillant. you rock.

It's a bagel!
No, it's a plain (piece of bread)!
No, it's Supertoast!

Re: Toast is super bread


Thanks so much for the comments.


@bassanimation, hey that's awesome. Thanks. I felt like there was a lot of fun to be had from this idea, even though I may have not nailed the landing. :p


@megsck, I take your point about the styles not matching. I was thinking the comparative realism of the toast hero would make him stand out in an funny way, but it could be too much.

I should probably have stylized the toast texture in a cartoony way.

Actually this whole design became a lot busier than I planned. It started out so simple and then grew more and more complicated. For instance, the buildings were just going to be doodles to give a metropolitan flavor but even though I kept a scrawly style they were drawn with multiple vanishing points on a curved ground plane. Ack.

Maybe this would have been better with just the toast and the toaster? I should learn to edit more.


I -am- quite pleased with it all though. Hopefully I can tune it up at a later date.

If anyone has a critique then by all means let me hear it. ^__^

Aw, I was sure this little guy was going to stay in the fog. Perfect balance of silliness and cuteness!

My favorite shirt ever was a Walt Disney writing shirt submitted but never made, about 3 years ago. This comes the closest.

I like this layout better than the simplified version, but I voted for both anyway.
