Ok, I've been thinking of starting a thread for us to show our videogame/fanfic/fanpic/VGC related drawings/artwork/whatever. Hopefully there are enough artists here to contribute, but any skill level and type of 'art' (like crafts) is OK. Signatures you have designed are OK too~

 

Even can be mini stick figure comics with people kicking the crap out of each other, but let's have fun with this topic!!

 

In the meantime, I will try to 'sticky' topics that would be interesting for those of us creating works here. Feel free to share your attempts, no matter the skill level... we all love art! If you have any suggested links to place here, please PM me them so I can add them here rather than asking me within the thread...
