Here we go - a day late, but whatever. I was busy stuffing my face with glorious thanksgiving food yesterday.
I'm probably going with sketch # 1 or #2.

Thanks to everyone for sharing your input!
The pinup character with a rediculously high ammount of votes was Yoko Ritona from Tengen Toppa Gurren! I'll be drawing her shortly so keep your eyes peeled for updates in my gallery. <don't worry - the picture below is an old facebook graffiti of mine - not the pinup>
Anyway, if your character didn't win, and you strongly wanted me to draw her -- no worries!
These are all some of my personal favourites, so if anything I'll draw at least a few sooner or later. ;)
Here is a list of the results:
1st -Yoko - Tengen Toppa Gurren (18 votes)
2nd - Sheva (resident evil 5)Midnaand Faye Valentine(cowboy bebop) tied with (8 votes)
3rd - Lady Morrigan(7 votes)
4th - Jessie (from Pokemon's Team Rocket) and Ivy (Soul Calibur) tied with (6 votes)
5th - Felicia (Darkstalkers) (5 votes)
6th - Crimson Viper(Street Fighter) (4 votes)
7th - Princess Ruto(Legend of Zelda) (2 votes)
8th - Carmen (Gun x Sword) and Shiva the Ice Goddess (Final Fantasy) tied with (1 vote)
Thanks again everyone for your support!!
I'll try to have a sketch posted by Monday the 12th -- which is also Canadian Thanksgiving! ;D

So I thought that maybe I should switch things up and ask Newground's opinion on which pretty ladies you would want to see me draw most. I plan to do another fan art soon - I just can't decide what!!
Please choose ONE pinup suggestion from the list and comment to tell me your vote!
I'll try to post a tally of everyone's choices this FRIDAY - and with any luck, I'll have at least a sketch up by thanksgiving!! (that's on monday, f.y.i)
Faye Valentine - Cowboy BeBop (8 votes)
Yoko Ritona - Tengen Toppa Gurren (15 votes)

So my younger sister, Mel / "Pickletoez" ended up making a Newgrounds gallery just recently..!
Following in her big sis's footprints! *cry* lol
She's very talented - but her gallery needs a little more work submitted to it, so make sure to keep an eye out for the next little while - she's got some pretty great work! :)
Now get over there and give her a nice warm Newgrounds Welcome!

HEADS UP GUYS - THERE'S PEOPLE SCREWING WITH THE ART PORTAL:
My Alien hominid pic that was frontpage yesterday was deleted, i'm now 'unscouted' and several other artist friends of mine are experiencing the same weird changes.
HALP US TOM! D:>
To all you hacker-types out there; this old graffiti I found in my art folder is conveniently for you:
It's personal, mutherfuckers. D:<
p.s: please re-scout me. <:C

So this morning i woke up to an offline MSN message telling me that I had frontpage on Newgrounds. (thanks Jake!)
I CAN'T EVEN BEGIN TO DESCRIBE HOW PSYCHED AND SURPRISED I AM!
I've been so damn loyal to DeviantART for FIVE YEARS, and then join newgrounds, being like 3 months old, AND I GET FEATURED ON THE FRONTPAGE! <3
FUCK, DO I EVER LOVE NEWGROUNDS!! :DDD
... MY FEATURED PIC DIDN'T EVEN HAVE BOOBS! 8D
So.. Does anyone know who is in charge of featuring art on the frontpage? I want to know who to thank. :D

PIXEL AVATARS ARE TAKING OVER DEVIANTART AND IT'S ALL OUR FAULT!
Okay, well, my friend Steve had the idea and made his static sprite first; then I went through with animating it and invited a bunch of other friends to do it. Basically we both started this Pixel Crew fad and we're getting WAY more attention for it than we ever imagined.
Seriously. They're fun to make, and EVERYONE and their hamster is making one now. We've even got our own CLUB because there's just too much to keep track of. o_o
Anyway - here's basically the EXACT SAME THING I JUST SAID; but from Deviantart. Check out my D.A for more!

It's a day and a half after Miracle Treat day, and the tallys have all been added up. Our Dairy Queen alone made and sold OVER ONE THOUSAND BLIZZARDS.
Today is Miracle Treat day, and I work at a Dairy Queen. On Miracle Treat Day, some of the profits from every Blizzard go toward a donation for a local Children's Miracle Network Hospital. This morning, from 11am-12 noon, TWO HUNDRED AND FIFTY SEVEN BLIZZARDS have been pre-ordered via. the internet. That's only within one hour of the store being open. I work from 5-10pm. D: If that count keeps, and TWO HUNDRED AND FIFTY SEVEN BLIZZARDS are ordered every hour, I'll be making ONE THOUSAND, TWO HUNDRED AND EIGHTY-FIVE Blizzards today. FML.
Don't forget to stop by a DQ and get a Blizzard now, kiddies!

Sorry in advance if there's anyone trying to get a hold of me for the next two weeks, I'm gone to Mexico for some volunteer work. I'm going with my younger sister and some other people from the community to build houses for the poor, work in orphinages, soup kitchens, etc. Will be back on August the 1st!
With any luck, i'll bring back a nice tan, rather than skin cancer and H1N1. *badum-pish*

So I've been here for a good couple days now.
Settled in, posted stuff, rated stuff, trolled Newgrounds to no end, watched some kickass flash collabs and played some great games, but i've noticed (or maybe I just haven't found them yet) that there's not really any artists' challenges or contests going on!
Anyone aware of some? .. Like, i'm not talking just a little contest held by a regular user (sorry) I'm talking full-blown Newgrounds Art Competitions! Even an art COLLAB would be okay -- I just really wanna do something to get myself involved and noticed here. lol
If anyone knows where to find any, or who to talk to in order to get one rolling, give me some feedback! :)
p.s: Went paintballing yesterday. I'm definitelyfeeling it now. We played against a scenario team, and they obliterated us! I was the second-last man standing, and ended up surrounded, so eventually I got nailed in the head, neck and ass. D:>
Got a whelt from another round too, my friend ran around a corner, saw me, freaked the hell out, and shot me in the knee from like TWO fucking feet away!! D8> FFFFFFF.
