Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!

So: I've been lurking for a bit, touched the doodle thread a bit, but I haven't tossed up my own thread yet here at the AC. There's a lot here so I'll divide it into sections; so far nothing really nsfw but I'll change the title if that changes later on.

For the last week or so I've been having trouble finding time/patience to actually draw, so I've been putting aside ten minutes a day to fill a 500x500 pixel canvas. somehow these are the LEAST horrifying of them:
the first one, which actually took closer to 15 minutes and that I'm only throwing up for comparison months from now (one day I'll look back and be comforted with the fact that, at the very least, I'd be better then than I am now. and then I'll hurl myself off of a building)
with this one I just threw on as many details as I could onto a figure. i see that she looks as uncomfortable being drawn by me as i was drawing her
AHAHAHAHA SO CLEVER MENSCH
so yeah i realized the skateboard was terrible just after then ten minutes were up
lastly: images that actually took effort
setting down the references for a racer girl I'm trying to finalize (and her pet ghost)
pointlessly throwing song lyrics onto an image is this thing i like to do
a wip!! trying to get values down, WOULD REALLY LOVE CONCRIT on this especially
another wip, but based more on texture (think a dog crossed with a pig crossed again with a worm)
in conlcusion, the present i drew for my The World Ends with You obsessed friend:
