One of my favorite Twitter accounts I follow is Supper Mario Broth, an account that tweets out weird and tiny details and facts from various Mario games. Recently they tweeted about Mario and Luigi’s incredible eyes.

Your challenge this week: Do something with this eye texture.

You probably expected something cake related? Well, while I did create something terrible on my personal Twitter account featuring cake, I decided to go a different direction because well, the internet has already done so many great cake ‘shops. So we are doing weird, special eyes!


I already cut out the eye for you. As always, you’re welcome.

Next week I’ll pick a winner and hand out some awards!

Please note that the image submissions rules have changed just a little bit. We’re looking for images that are 800 pixels wide now!

How To Submit — Instructions

1. Create your ‘Shop and save it to your desktop. Images must be at least 800 pixels wide.

2. Go to the bottom of this post

3. This brings up a comment window. Click “Choose file” if you’re uploading your ‘shop from your desktop

4. Alternatively, you can upload the ‘Shop to a free image hosting service. I suggest imgur. Then paste the image’s URL into the field that says “Image URL.” Note: this must be the URL of the image itself, not the page where it is displayed. That means the URL ends in .jpg, .gif, .png, whatever.

5. Add editorial commentary and hit submit and your image will load. If it doesn’t, upload the image to imgur and paste the image URL as a comment. I will look at it.

6. Large-size images may not upload properly, though we have seen some animated .gifs upwards of 5 MB. If you’re still having trouble uploading the image, try to keep its longest dimension (horizontal or vertical) under 1000 pixels, or the whole thing under 2 MB.
