my lack of talent is matched only by my abundance of artist's block, and well, since request threads are the new personal art thread, i'll start my own!
just describe a character/scene/object whatever, and i'll take a stab at it!

here's one of my more recent pieces... a bowler trophy.
for more examples check out my art thread, link's in the sig, too

specify pencils or photoshop.

man... my art always seems to hit that sweet spot of "unimpressive".

not horrible enough to spark a flame war, not good enough to merit much praise...

but no time for a suggestion any of you 25 people viewing??

MY sig says 'Bush for president '08' in all caps. I don't think there is much debate on who the idiot is.
Also, since I left this out, I think the umbrella picture would be better penciled.

I disagree, i think that's what wrong with the pictures themselves ( The anatomy ). It seems to throw the pictures out of focus and makes them look like blobs off mess, That said your colouring is amazing :D so just work on the anatomy.

anatomy, wrong? why i .... okay. that is what's wrong.

especially the umbrella guy, i just kinda threw a few lines down and hoped for the best.

but what intrests me is that you say the coloring is good.
again, that was more of a... basecolorshadowsmudge-smudge-smudge kinda thing.

workin on the squirrel pimp.

You might not have gotten my PM, so I'll put it here. A madness character with a human body. You can see how it would look shaped if you read my PM.

Your stuff is pretty sweet dude. So I'm bookmarking this one :p

And a suggestion for a full page strip.... Draw a stoner looking out his window (On the left side of the page) saying "Ohh Shit E.T. it's Border Patrol!" E.T. is running towards a dogie door (On the right side of the page.

Couldn't come up with any original suggestins, so I figured I'd give the basics of something my friend drew a long time ago.

yeah... sorry that took so long... i had midterms all this week, and finally had a good art session.

its... more of a golem, but has the X and the mannequin shape-ness.

i love that glow... took like 4-10 layers to get it right enough.
