So let me explain the joke I tried to craft from pebbles:
The chicken-vamp’s also a cockatrice, right? So the chicken would kindly ask the horse to be turned to stone. The horse, being a polite house guest obliged and is very quickly petrified. The chicken then asks the horse if he may drink from the horses mouth... I mean blood, but when the cockatrice puts his fangs into the horse statue all he can taste are pebbles.
The moral of this Aesop is to not do things without thinking what will happen.

Firstly, no art is bad art.
Secondly, it’s really hard to tell what you’re shading. It looks like you’re using black/white/transparency (doooooooooooon’t) which might be where the trepidation of your shading comes from.
Look at your banner, the blue of the girl’s dress isn’t a blacker blue, it’s a deeper blue (more blue is used in it), so try that instead of your current shading with (are you using a painting tool? Neat! But it’s not really a substitute for proper shading).
Firstly, that's debatable.
Secondly, the proportions of the creatures scare me. They're far beyond my own capabilities, but I feel they could be done better with practice and time.
The backgrounds (aside from the tree roots) are nice enough, though. The clouds are pretty.
I don’t think she was responsible for the line art...
But I remember the most frustrating thing for me starting out as someone who
With color was the shading.
Because color is evil. Eviiiiiiil. Evil.
I hate color.
But it’s sooo pretty.
Anyways, I overcame that hump when one of my teachers was like “oh, hey, don’t be an idiot,” and suddenly I wasn’t.
Well, I was, but I was less of an idiot.
On that note, I have developed a new joke based on our poll:
A horse walks into a bar when suddenly a woman runs out hysterically.
The horse, dismayed, turns to the barman and says "It's so hard to find a stable relationship".
I never liked adding color to my drawings. I could never make it look the way it did in my mind's eye.
I found it easier when doing 3d renders etc than actually hand-drawing.
That may also be because I expected I wouldn't like the results so never invested in good color media.
[quote=auphelia;35185308]Yes, you lost everything you owned, and then everything Alice owned.
Is that what she told you? She got loaded and left the bag of goods on the casino floor. We studied what happened, and we decided you grabbed up the booty. We let it go since I convinced Alice you would probably build a dungeon and entertain us all for years.
