Edit: To everyone commenting on the 'unoriginal concept': I credited the original artist in the description when I originally posted this photo. I never claimed to be the creator of the 'egg' concept, this was a school assignment, not done by choice, lay off. (Had you not been so lazy and bothered to read my description box before posting you would know this). Most photographs are 'copies' if you will of other photographs. It is a matter of finding a photograph that inspires you and remaking it to be your own creation, as I have done here. Critique the photo all you want, I love constructive critiques which give me an opportunity to build as an artist. However please do not leave ignorant comments, that will accomplish nothing other than getting you blocked from commenting on my work. Thank you to everyone who has left something either positive or constructive.

Suggester says: Absolutely outstanding idea. This photo was made to be hilariously adorable as the mean savage eggs force the scared one to plunge to his cracking death in the frying pan. I love the split shot which gives it a comic-like storyline. ( Suggested by JacobRM and Featured by hellfirediva )
Originality: I have seen a lot of eggs marked out there - considering this is one of them, I'd say in that perspective its originality is a mere 3 star.
However, this photograph has its own distinctive theme to it which differentiates it from others. Thus a good 4 star for it.

Vision: Love the 2 picture photograph. The first depicting the famous pirate "walk-the plank" scene and the 2nd picture slot depicting the sad, final scene. Hahah, hilarious, it is however.

Technique: Quite a simple technique, nothing fancy or glamorous here, so a good 4 stars for that =)

Impact: Haha, it had a great impact on it - for starters, it inspired me. Makes me wanna pop open the fridge and start marking those eggs! Hahah, I like how the artist attempted it through a totally new way, and not just by drawing a face on it and photographing it!

Thank you picturize for wasting 4 eggs on this, cause it is totally worth it :lol:
What do you think?
The Artist thought this was FAIR
107 out of 116 deviants thought this was fair.

Vision: Whatever you originally envisioned, this does it justice. 4.5

Originality: I haven't seen many blunt, ironic pictures like this, and the only eggs I have seen are squeezed ones in midair. The concept of execution by falling into a frying pan is quite original to me. 4.5

Technique- the bluntness is what really makes the picture. I was confused for a second because it looked like the same photo, then the lightbulb came on. 4

Impact- After a moment of confusion, it really packs a punch! 5

School project, huh? A trip to the school counselor in your future...
