As the title states, I'm going to be posting my 50th drawing pretty soon. I'm working on #49, and I'm almost at the halfway mark with it. But what do I do for 50?
The answer is to copy Darkarax's idea and take suggestions. I know 50 drawings isn't anywhere near as impressive as Darkarax's 500 wallpapers, but I don't know if I'll ever reach that many drawings. Only time will tell.
I have no clue what I want the subject matter to be. I do know that I want my 50th drawing to be something special, but not too overwhelming.* I want to get it done before June 1, 'cause that's when I kick off the 30 Days of Art event. So, hit me with suggestions!
*When I say overwhelming, I mean like a poster. Kita once suggested that I do a "movie poster" for my story, The Rebels of Planet Aadau. Although I want to do it, I still don't know where to begin with that one.
So it's come to this....
You know how people around theO are taking requests and giving out surprise gifts? Well, I'm feeling crazy enough to do something like that. So, comment and I'll draw a picture for you. It'll be a surprise, but I'll do research to make sure it's something you like.
There is a catch, however.
You have to ask questions for my voice meme. I know I said that I wanted you to answer your own questions to get to know you better, but you don't even have to do that. Just click the link and ask some questions in my voice meme post (not this one).
Since MangaKid, Allie Elric, and alphonse13 already asked questions, they will automatically get drawings from me. Other participants will be listed below.
Let's see if this works.
Apparently, not too well. Actually, it's getting there.

This meme is getting a bit long, but it will remain open until I'm able to figure out how to record my guitar. Please be sure to read the questions before you ask-- someone might have already asked one you were going to ask.

I really, really didn't want to bump this without an update from other questioners, but this topic is slowly but surely making it to the bottom of the front page. The new rule that I've made for myself to follow is that I will bump this post either when someone asks questions or after I've made four new posts in this World. That way I won't spam my subscribers' updates too much.
I've seen this trend going around theO where people are doing voice memes. I was thinking about doing one myself. I'm not sure if it'll fly, though because my World has, like, one loyal reader.
So, I'm going to make this a bit more interesting. A lot of the people that I subscribe to have been doing voice memes, but I never asked them questions because I didn't know what to ask. So, in this case, when you ask me a question, I ask that you answer your own question. For example, if you ask "What's your favorite anime?" you tell me your favorite anime. That way, I get to know you better and you won't ask me any embarrassing questions that you wouldn't want to answer, yourself. The only exceptions to this rule would be if you ask a question that required an oral response such as, "Can you make silly voices?" or "Can you play me one of your songs on the guitar?"
If you can't think of any questions, I can give you some ideas. You can ask me about my art, my stories and original characters, anime and manga, the music I listen to, or the music I play, just to name a few. Heck, you can ask me something totally off the wall if you want to-- just be prepared to answer that question yourself. Questions are unlimited, so please ask away!
Special thanks to Allie Elric and elricbrothersfan for plugging my voice meme.

Hey, remember that post that Adam made about Google enabling random people to steal hi-res images and post them wherever they darn well please? Well, there's a petition for that. Sorry I didn't post about it sooner. I signed it some time ago. I hope some of you will, too.
I'd like to know what happened to a number of things.
First of all, what happened to the featured World posts? I liked reading those. Heck, I'm going to put "spotlight" in my tags for the sake of experimenting.
Second, what's up with promotions? We haven't had one yet this year. LGA775 pointed this out about a month ago and nothing has changed. There are SO many people that are overdue for promotions.
My third point isn't so much a thing as it is a person. Did alphonse13 deactivate her account? There's no trace of her anywhere. And she was so active, too. I was going to draw her a picture for asking questions in my voice meme (still open), but now I don't know if I can.
I wish theO was a more active community. So little has been happening lately. Then again, I'm not exactly helping. Stupid lack of scanner.
