Have any of you guys Just started doodling and completely lost track of time? This happens to me all of the time... i'll start off just on paper and just draw for hours on end. Am I the only one?

Nope. Usually I'm very aware of time while drawing. Most of the time is spent putting everything down and looking at it at a different light and saying. "Face it you SUCK! That is the worst pile of shit I've ever seen to disgrace the paper!" I then put down what I'm drawing and quit.

I run into it head first, for the most part - without really thinking about how stupid I'm being by drawing something, I sketch it out. slap on the lineart and viciously rip apart some colour. Well, usually takes me about 5 solid hours to complete something so it's quite calm for the most bit, but I tend to do it in one or two sittings.

Well, it was meant to be a piece to prove to myself that i could get back into drawing, but yeah, THAT one might as well go out the fucking window. I think I'll just quit on the piece - I'll just move on, although it's depressing to go another day without an addition to my art collection (yet another day) things can't be helped.

It did look horribly detached from the body, anyway.

I found it, as I always do, by accident. There's a slot machine in the club. Just keep using that, or jsut look at my profile to gaze upon my wondrous medal.

The trick is to win the slot machine without altering the odds. So yeah, don't mess with the machine and keep breaking it down, for the most part. You'll find out what I mean by altering the odds later in the game.

Has to be the most pathetic 2k post that ever existed >.>

I know what you mean - extra slow nets suck in every way shape and form, and I significantly go out of my way to blow something up after an afternoon spent wrestling with mine D:

But yeah, I'll look at the vid, so thanks for the link, Ash.

there is no edit button, makes you have to think before you post, or makes you kick yourself afterwards, mostly because you forget to post a pic, stupid button i always forget

Ok I feel stupid about this... there is a picture on the frontpage. Posted from itchrislife, it not good, but compared to other crap it's ok. But so many people gave it 0's. But I noticed the person is not scouted. Is this some kind of joke that is going way over my head? Or is this really some guy who somehow managed to get frontpaged and everyone is 0ing it because they really dislike it?

My questions are: How do you make frontpage? You can be frontpaged if not scouted? How does a picture stay frontpaged with all those 0's?

I looked at the rules, but I didn't see anything about frontpage rules.

Well, I know that moderators themselves put up art on the frontpage, and if anything it probably is just a fan-piece birthday to a moderator/someone a moderator knows. That sort of thing happens fairly often, and you don't expect art to survive their trip being on the frontpage, but if anything it really is, at essence, nothing more then a little chuckle.

Unscouted just means that it's a bigger chuckle. I've seen that sort of thing happen quite a bit.

Unscouted means they're not scouted, pure and simple.
FPing is just that an admin or art mod thinks it worthwhile making a distintion of a certain pic.

THERE ARE EXCEPTIONS TO THE RULE PLEASE DON'T MAKE ME CRY LIKE THAT.

In other, much less caps-locked news, I've discovered that a lot of the evils of using a big brush, at least the evils that happen to me, can actually be negated using a sharpen filter, even to the point where it emulates the look of vectors. That's cheating, I'm sure, but it's certainly magic :D
