Somehow you took every aspect of my reaction to this pic and compressed it into a single word  :D .

Anyway, bloody amazing vicky.

Tell me about it...

Vicky, you've put us all to shame. Are you sure you don't work for Rough Draft or something?

Bloody hell! That is freaking amazing. I agree, you have put us all in shame, or at least me. ;)  Nice pic Vicky, it will be a great addition to the calendar. I mean the calendar will be a great addition to your pic. ;D

There's no word invented yet that describes the sheer awesomeness of your sketch alone.  :o Brilliant!

Heh, I won't build a shrine to you or something, I'll just say I liked this picture a lot. :)
Keep it up, Victoria! You can draw damn well.

I do say. Simply awesome. Too many good things to comment on here, but I like how there are posters for Life In Hell and Futurama on you-know-whose office wall. Well, I'm lost for words. I can't wait to see it coloured.

And since I realise I haven't commented on it, OB's "Maggie and SLH in the snow" picture left me speechless as well. Adorable subject and excellent, original colouring.

This calendar will certainly be one of a kind.

Wow. One day, maybe I'll be half that skill!

How? How could such a complexly detailed image just pop in yer head? I'm amazed by the progression and pace that Simpsons art is going.
All the effort you put into that pic is gunna be so cool for the calander, good job! In fact, exelent job!

[EDIT]
Upfront, Sorry to intrupt the replys to Vikki's wonderful picture, just ignore me :)

How long ago did I say that? Well, months and months later, I guess I gotta keep at least one of my promises this year.

Its overdue, incredibly rushed, and with the little talent left in me, "could do better" Springs to mind.
Well, b*ll*cks. I'm tired, hungry, and damn lucky I'm botherd to bleep bad words. I got another one to do after this. Mine. Woopy friggin doo...
Hope you like it. Even though, I'd probably stick with the sketch than use this... thing.

Good luck to the others :)

[ANOTHER EDIT] Cheers Chris, fixed that problem, amazingly easily. I thought it would take ages! Also, I added 'Ekko' at the top corner, and did my coloring for my calander pic.
I'm very disapointed with my calander picture. So much so, I'm just going to link it.

Its so plain and boring. I knew I should have left this to the profesionals. Omar, do not use my coloring unless I dont make a better one.

Still a great picture, and the colouring is good, though I think you went a bit over the top with gradient. (Hmm... gradient and I don't seem to work well together.) Still, I like Captain McCallister's bluish hair. Also, you misspelt "crisis", but that shouldn't be too hard to change. (EDIT: And there we go!) The different costumes and the dialogue are still hilarious.

well, here's the sketch of what I'm planning. I'm sorry :'( . I tried and tried to make it february themed, but it wasn't working. Then I tried to make it a character other than you-know-who, but again it wasn't working. Then I spotted a wonderful drawing of a horse I could use for reference in a 'how to draw manga' book and, well, it all fell into place. God knows what homer did to have to buy her this to make up for it...

I think you should swap it with one of mine. I've suddenly had a great idea for february.

All will be revealed in a couple of days...

yeah, sure. Or if that doesn't work out i guess I'd be free to swap with any other awkward months too.
