The Swine flew by priteeboy The Swine flew by priteeboy
I've been wanting to make a...let's say "satirical political stab" at the whole swine flu thing before it got old (if not already, hopefully it will go the way of the almost forgotten bird flu and SARs :pray:) I considered a digital painting of a similar scene, but that would require too much human figures running from the pig blimp (or "pimp" lol :ekud:) so I figured it was about time to make another emoticon ayway :nod:

So by all means I'm not trying to be insensitive to anyone who has contracted the disease or knows someone who does since yes - it is deadly...But I guess I'm showing how futile the world leader's efforts were to keep it contained. The disease was as blatantly obvious as this bright pink curly-tailed zepplin here and it's no surprise it spread - Man can't control all aspects of nature and diseases will spread, wer'e just delaying the inevitable.
Still, these emoticons got over their sickness as most of those who get swine flu do. The amount of lives claimed is high but the survivor rate is higher, it kinda shows how fear can be brought to the lives of many by media propaganda :fear:

Not sure if that made sense or not, I'm no genius on the matter, I just wanted to back myself up in the event of any smartass comments I get...So just enjoy the flying pig already :dummy:

Edit: made it a bit slower as I mentioned earlier.

Edit2: Wow! thanks a lot for the Daily Deviation to all who suggested it and to `CookiemagiK for featuring it! :woohoo: Uuuh, I will admit emoticon's aren't my "main" so enjoy the few I make lol :hug:

Daily Deviation

Given 2009-12-05
My inbox was flooded with suggestions for this piece! The Swine flew by *priteeboy is not only a clever parody of the swine flu disease, it is also brilliantly animated and very nicely detailed including many funny elements. ( Suggested by TimberClipse and Featured by CookiemagiK )

I love when people make jokes about serious disease.
As that is what you are doing, are you not?
But it's all fun and games i'm sure.

I'm taking a wild guess here and saying you did :dummy:

Daily Deviations are special features chosen by the staff/admins around here, they don't come easily but they're always a really good thing for the artist who gets it :happycry:

Lol, usually the bigger and faster something rises to a global scale thing - the faster it then disappears and becomes something we all laugh about :giggle:
