Forgotten Freshness #3

What a bunch of posers!!!

Now I could pull out my hype cards and tell you all about how I have some of the most spectacular poses in the history of heromachine.

I could.

I could tell you how I pulled out my trusty clicker finger and dove, head first, through the depths of the old post, and brought back treasure the likes you’ve maybe never seen!!

I could! I could do that…

What I can’t begin to describe to you though, is that feeling…
of joy
and bewilderment
your gonna get, deep inside, when you think back to the day…



#3 came out!!!

*Pauses for applause*

My friends…

Without further ado..
This is:

Challenges, Challenges, CHALLENGES!!!

Lets be honest… We all face ’em.
For some of us getting out of bed in the morning is a challenge.
Deciding what to wear… School drama… Work will get you down. Family matters… the list goes on, right?

Luckily for you guys…!!! 😀 :d 😀

What I have for you isn’t!
This is not a challenge. I repeat. THIS IS NOT A CHALLENGE!
Was at one time maybe… but not anymore!

That’s right guys today I’m highlighting some of the most ever, best in the world, entries from:
PoP Quizes, CDCs, CCs, FNFs, HOTMs, DVDs, ABCs, 123s…

I digress…



Are you guys ready?!?!?!

Gallery Grabs- Nug

Ok, so, after covering Iscarioto last week, now I’m going to follow up on the suggestions that everyone made two weeks ago. And we’re gonna take a look a Nug to kick off.

One thing I have noticed in looking through peoples galleries for this series is how peoples styles change over time. It’s really interesting to just spend a bit of time and go from start to most recent in someones gallery and see how much it changes, though obviously make sure you have a spare hour or two if you plan to look at any galleries with over 50 pages.

Anyway, on with the show.

Gallery Grabs- Iscarioto

So, last week I asked everyone who I should cover this week on Gallery Grabs and there were some great suggestions, so naturally I’ve ignored them all (for the time being anyway), because one of my favourite creators just decided to show up again after being M.I.A for around a year. So you really think I’m gonna pass up this opportunity to revisit his gallery?

Warning, I go all odd half way through this. Sorry.

Gallery Grabs- DeliriousAl

So, moving away from our Canadian contingent now, we’re going to take a look at someone whom has a thought train much like a Salvador Dali painting, if his comments are to be believed. However, whilst the stuffffffffffffff that comes out of his mouth might be a tad… odd, his art is, well, it’s the stufffffffffff you’re gonna see below the jump.

Gallery Grabs: DJuby

So, as last week we had one consummate Canadian as featuree, why not have another one this week. And as we had a theme of shading last week, lets go with costuming for this week, because, if you haven’t twigged yet, we’re talking about djuby this week, so the word costume is going to appear a lot (and I mean a lot). So buckle up, you’re in for a ride.

Gallery Grabs- AMS

Ok, so after covering two underrated (I.M.O) members of the community in the last two Gallery Grabs, this week we’re going to cover someone who is rated just the right amount (i.e. everyone agrees he’s a freaking genius). Just so we’re clear here, AMS’ gallery has 83 pages to it at time of writing, and this is AMS we’re talking about, so each and every one of those pages has something brilliant on it, so some stuff is going to be left out. Best thing you can do is go and look though for yourself, because it’s worth it. Even if it does take an unreasonable amount of time to look through (my gallery is even longer, so I can’t talk).

Warning: This post will contain the word shading many many many times.

Gallery Grabs: Vectorman316

So, as promised Gallery Grabs has returned after skipping a week. And me being a complete contrarian, actually was planning to cover someone else this week, but changed my mind because it would have been too predictable. So instead I decided to go with Vectorman, who, like CantDraw previously, is one of those ‘machiners whose work is always consistently awesome, but who for some reason doesn’t always get the plaudits afforded to some of his peers. So lets rectify that by taking a stroll through the best of the best of his art.

Gallery Grabs: CantDraw

While I’m waiting for a few people to get back to me on the PUP: Redux front, I thought I’d do something new. The idea is, I’m gonna randomly go through somebody’s gallery on the forums and pick out my favourite pictures of theirs and talk about them, sort of like Character Of The Week, but for a whole gallery. This week, I’m picking on CantDraw.

Tell me what you think of the idea in the comments and, if you guys like the idea, I’ll bring more. Not telling who I’ll pick though. That ruins the fun.

Awesome Art After The Jump
