Actually, no.  You get used to the fact that we have rules and a sense of respect for others.  People will review when they're good and ready.  Demanding comments right away when most of us like to look things over and take our time to comment appropriately is highly, highly frowned upon.

Feels kinda pointless since I don't actually do stuff at Gaia, so I'm putting it here.

Just pretend I posted an "Internet, Serious business" image macro, because I'm busy.

What, you can't whip one up in a few minutes?  I thought you were that awesome.


Petty arguments aside, we expect you to follow the rules while in our community, internet or no.  I'd like the next post you make to be a mature and respectful one.

Shock collars and group showers don't mix.

Bender's mauve shower cap is just darling. ;D I like the way you've done the water, too. I'd like to do some con-crit but I have absolutely no experience with this sort of grabpic-style colouring, so for now I'll just point and cackle.

Thought I may as well show this here, as it is a little more artsy fartsy than my usual images, finding my way around with the airbrush and with the help of some reference images.
Hows it?

I'll leave the construction stuff and get straight to the colouring:

I have quite a pale monitor, but I'd guess that the shading needs to be a lot stronger to stop the whole thing looking flat. You've already got where most of the shadows should be on the figure; they just need to be stronger, particularly on the hair, which is looking pretty scribbly. Figure aside, there should also be shadows* under the steering column, the chair and that ladder's handrail, and more shadow under Leela's foot to show that the heel's raised off the floor. Finally, the background highlights (reflection of the track lighting in the steering column, for example) look too lumpy for a reasonably undamaged surface – perhaps a harder low-opacity brush would help smooth things out.

Best of luck with future artsiness. :fry

* One of many artsy obstacles: the light source can be a git.

I was aware of all of those points you made, I just decided to not bother with them while I was making it.
Any newer images in that style should have some of those improvements cause I don't wanna spend too much time on the same image.

Pretty nice, Freako.

I like the lighting...  ;D

The shippers can have it.

Looks good to me! Nice colouring, and I don't see a lot of fanart about Colleen.

Over and over;
I'm a good hater
But a bad lover.
