Ok, so heres the idea. Every month, we can have a thread for all of us to submit a flash design, (similar to something you might see in the toodles gallery) that all fall within the same Theme. Then near the end of the month, approximatley a week before the month is over, we all vote for who we think had the best peice of Flash that month. Then, the winner will decide the theme for the next months thread. Now to keep this fair, this will be open to everyone, BUT (and I say this in the nicest possible way) if you cant draw for shit, and everyone tells you you cant draw for shit, and you pretty well know you cant draw for shit, dont post a buncha garbage here.

Please avoid posting in-progress or unfinished peices of flash, only post fully rendered images, and when you are quoting another person, try to avoid qouting the images. This will help keep the thread nice and tidy, and will avoid confusion come voting time. Also, only one submission per person, per month. Do not submit multiple entries, thinking it will increase your chances of winning, just stick to one. Also, when entering, please be sure that you are entering a new peice of artwork. This means, no entering pictures from previous months thread (this will show that youve put some effort into a new design). When voting time comes around, You cannot vote for yourself. You have to vote for another artists peice of work, or dont vote at all. This shows a little bit of respect towards the other artists on the board.

This is a great way to flex your drawing muscles and do some drawings of stuff you normally would'nt do.

If you guys have any other suggestions as to how to keep this thread from going south, or turning into a joke, or any questions of any kind regarding subject matter, or whatever, just shoot me a PM.

Last months winner was Ron (Hyena) with his fancy bird so he gets to choose this months theme, which will be. . .

AMERICANA

Now get Drawing!

I feel like a dick. Maybe I should have chosen an easier topic. I thought it would be fun. I have a submission but if no one else is going to enter then maybe someone else should pick a theme.

what are you waiting for Hyena.. submit. I enjoy saying that.. submit, submit.

I think this month's theme is quite awesome. I was hoping to see some diabolical hotdogs and overgrown cocks. ;)

You guys kill me.

Nice work LDG. Paul, you ain't right.

This month's theme is fantastic...I'll just betting that everyone is either on vacation, tattooing their fingers off, or procrastinating (like me.).
