POTW Beta. Simple rules, there are no real rules. Just no ripping and no obscenity. Artful nudity is fine as long as the subject matter is tasteful, and a LINK is used instead of an image.

I'm tired of having this place devolve into the same type of gfx board I see at every other board. This place has produced at least a dozen GREAT artists, and I think some have potential to continue that tradition.

But these days, it seems all we get is 'lol siggy kfnx'.

What went wrong? What did we do to discourage creativity on a scale larger than 500x150? What can we do to encourage it once again? If nothing else, the desire to be a great artist drove people like us. There should be no incentive to expression.

But enough ranting. Bring it on. Bring your best, or don't show up. Plain and f*cking simple. Ratings are going to be done on a level par to tr42, sl, or dA. Well, not dA.

Yeah, so, ah, here's what I've done since last POTW, and what you've all seen before but I'll submit because I'm a quadrapalagic.

Good luck to everyone.
