YOU ARE A TOY by TomPreston YOU ARE A TOY by TomPreston
I hear this alot. Gamers professing that their console of choice is NOT a toy. It's a multimedia storage device which happens to play games.

I'm sorry but no... it's a toy. And there isn't anything wrong with it being called that. If you have a problem with your console being called a toy, then you've got insecurity issues.

Personally? I LOVE toys...

I would say "it's too good to be true," but the fact is, it is true, and that is something many people have forgotten in the wake of new technology.

The detail on Woody and the Playstation 3 is beautiful. You managed to capture Pixar's original style as well as Sony's technical design. I really can't get past the fact that this is so well drawn while being so ridiculously true. It almost needed to be said. People constantly forget that the term "toy" applies to more than just inanimate objects that exist for the sole purpose of entertaining children.

The only thing I would have wanted some improvement on is Woody's hands. They seem slightly deformed, but nonetheless convey the dilemma at pun intended.

I await more of your future toy troubles. :thumbsup:

Though this message that the "PS-Trizzle" and other high-def consoles being toys and not something less childish-sounding has been said a lot, I haven't heard it in the context of Toy Story before. As for the drawing itself, while the shading and coloring is quite good and colorful, some of the edges look a bit unpolished, especially on the PS3, which looks especially unpolished. Also, Woody's expression doesn't look quite right for the context. The expression does have the right anger to it, but the body motions don't really match what I would think the emotion was supposed to be. Maybe if Woody was pointing, it would work better. Still, I thought that in terms of the message, the Deviation delivered it quite well.
