Wow thank you all so much. With all your help I’m beginning to feel for the first time I actually mite be able to pull this off. *blushing madly* all I need it to find a good style, some strong character designs, and an editor eventually (dyslexia’s a bitch sometimes)

By the way if I do disappear over the next few days please forgive me, I’m in the process of packing and moving/graduation so I’m a bit…well busy, but ill be back I promise. I loath finals…

In the meantime I thought I would through some sketches up I did for a friend of mine. There from an rp I’ve been into and star mostly one original character and one from a pre-existing series.

Yes but most of the stuff is so old, and I really don’t like a lot of it…

Good question. I actually have thought a lot about it, but don’t yet have a name I like…if anyone has ideas I’m open to suggestions, but I wont lie, I’m very picky when it comes to naming things

Added after 3 minutes:

Oh, and here is something a little different, just for fun. (same two rp characters as before)

The kid with the glasses reminds me of Conan Edogawa from the Case Closed series. Any inspiration there?
Too good for you.

I think it's some of the best drawing ever done by one person, and it deserves to be up there with all the other comics.

Alright you all, now my face is a vivid bright red, but I’m honored you all like them so much

To Acktoo: *fangirl squeal* DC is my guilty pleasure. The rp started as one for either people with very developed characters or people who wanted to try taking on a pre-existing personality, thus you have the ragdoll candy (the original) and Conan/Shinichi (from dc). The rp can get out of hand, but sometime there are just moments that beg to be illustrated…so I do…I’m a nerd

To Rockwell: I am in school for fine art. I’m an oil painter mostly, but have worked in marble, ceramics, and tradition drawing materials. The thing is, my professors would have my head if they knew I was still illustrating and ‘goofing around’…its not really smiled upon for an artist to actually enjoy cartoons, so that’s why I’m here bugging all of you.

I bow down to your wisdom and greatness. I would try and help you with your coloring troubles, but I'm afraid I'll just make them worse -__- I'm horrible when it comes to helping people who are obviously better than me. I do hope you find a coloring technique suiting to your style :(

P.S. I will be watching you from now on >:3

*blush* ahh thank you...I’m beginning to think part of the problem lies in the program im using. I really need illustrator or a photoshop program...it stinks being poor

Ok because this is a snafu and because I let everyone know my guilty pleasure here is my version of little Ran (or Rachel to those of you who know it as Case Closed) in bleedmans glorious style.

You say you are bugging us with your art?
There is an error in your logic:
We enjoy this art, especially since it's so well done.
