Have a dark elf.

Bonus version without the shadowed face, for comparison. I think I prefer the shadowed one, makes him more sinister, but please give your opinions.

Unfortunately won't be able to attend this Sunday. Hopefully I'll whip up something cool during the week instead.

That's excellent news!

And no-one here ever apologised for posting non-Groening stuff.

"So beautiful. So bloody beautiful."

Pollution, the White Horseman from Good Omens, seen here doing what he does best. I tried drawing this very scene way back, never thought it was good enough to post. May post it for comparison once I'm back at my home computer.

Con-crit welcome! More cartoony version (with his three pals) here.

It's a good pic, Chris! The lines are a bit too faint, but I can see it fine. In terms of concrit, only his right hand looks a bit awkward, but the pose and the face look pretty good to me.

Thank you very much! I may make the lines darker when I have the time.

Initiation. One day, I might write the story about this chick.

Con-crit very welcome!

EDIT: Reuploaded with some slight improvements upon con-crit.

I shared my opinions in chat already, but it's an impressive piece of work, Chris! The little anatomy fixes you make did improve it. She looks lifelike and the face and hands look really good.

Also, I neglected to mention this before, but I'll be unavailable for rewatch and creativity this weekend, as I'll be visiting my family. I know that we've started hearing the first ep of Dungeons and Daddies, and I've already caught up to the first 50 minutes, so no idea what you'll want to do. If you want to hear the rest and let me catch up later, it's fine.

After the "The Good, the Bart, and the Loki" short came out, I just had to do something with Clobber Girl and Thor!Lisa, so I found a Hulk vs. Thor cover to recreate. Didn't quite work out like I wanted due to the differences in character proportions, and I'll admit I cheaped out on the background, but overall I like it.

Already said this in chat, but great concept and execution. The colours are very Simpsons, and the effect around Mjolnir is cool.

I remembered I had suggested this idea to May once, and decided to run with it myself on account of it being the month of Halloween. Nightmare Before Christmas has always been one of my favorite movies. I tried going with thinner lines and the scratchy shading to give it a Burtonesque vibe, and I actually really like how it turned out. (In hindsight, I probably should've done the same shading with their mouths instead of filling them in pure black, but that's hindsight for ya.)
