The pink I can't stand, but it is a pretty pink.

My stomach just likes to turn at anything pink. I'm wierd like that. I also get that fingernails-on-chalkboard sensation whenever I come into contact with cardboard boxes. How wierd is that?

I have the same reaction to cardboard. I remember in third grade when I moved to a new school and they didn't have straws for the little cartons of milk. I had the hardest time drinking it straight from the carton. It took me a while to get over it, but it usually doesn't bother me anymore.

By the way—cool drawing, Thor.

Jon Boy, you've helped me feel not as wierd as usual. Thank you!

What do you think causes that sensation? It's so foreign to most people.

I have absolutely no idea. I'd also never met anyone else who had that reaction. Hmm. Maybe I'll start a thread about it.

It's not foreign to me. When I see pink and orange together I get rather nauseated and revolted. And pink is just a yucky colour on its own depending on the shade.
Blue on the other hand makes me happy and feel nice.
And I did like that drawing. [Party]

Funny, I don't see pink, I see a red wash. In addition, the diagonal composition gives a dynamism to the piece.

The color composition is daring, especially with the stark, white, cartoon of the head, focusing the whole work on those peircing eyes.

An excellent rendering, showing what is truely breathtaking about American Sequential art.

And, artsy farts aside, I like it.

Great job T.

Ashes over Earth

It really does feel like I'm dieing.

(((I made this in photoshop combined with Maya)))

or if you want something a little less "I'm dying, I'm ****ing dying."

how's this...

The attempt at a sincere response to the thread is hilarious for multiple reasons.

Wow. Thread necromancy for spam that's almost beautiful in its perplexingness.

I whistled it, since neither of you guys mentioned doing it.

Side note: wasn't Silverblue Sun the alt of a hatracker who died a few years back?

Oh! Such poetry! Clearly we behold genius before us.

Foods that help lose weight climbed up the mountain,
What is the best way to lose weight liked to play ball,
Foods to lose weight was running to the,
Whats the fastest way to lose weight the mouse ran for its life,
Fastest inexpensive way to lose weight the horse was brown,
How to lose weight extremely fast in the cave she,
How to lose weight super fast the lion roared all day.
