OP here. Hey, some tangential blather is at least a response. Better than nothing. Since there's no interest in being my artslave yet, I'll post some general concepts and see if that piques any interest before suggesting anything from my writings. It'll be like a second theme thread except the leader is a little crazier and has no idea what he's doing.
Here's a concept: Two board-tans (or other mascots) playing a sport together. It's a good way to show off some motion and action. Post on Friday (16th of October) or whenever you get around to finishing it. Anchor to this post. And if anyone is offering themselves for commissions, add some way to contact you.
