Okay, so I finally taught myself how to use the drawing program on my computer.  The following is what crawled forth into the world from the strange corners of my mind. 

Unfortunately, I am largely clueless as far as getting those images to the AG forum goes, so it's just going to be links to a photo-upload site for now, and as I'm not even sure the links will post right, you may have to copy-and-paste them instead of clicking.  Fingers crossed!

Any critiques, comments, and advice on uploading will be appreciated. 

Major thanks to Cenere for technical assistance; without his help I wouldn't have even gotten my pics to the upload site.

What programme are you using? If you are not already you should use Paint.NET.

I'm just using the drawing function on my word processor, which is AppleWorks on a MAC computer.

The last one is the best, but the second one is good too. Maybe try doing something different than birds. ;)

Oh I will, I assure you.  Those are just the first ideas that I had, so I used them while they were still fresh.  I have a couple of other notions swirling about, but they may take considerably longer due to complexity and the fact that I'm still a rookie at this.  Stay tuned!  :)

Here's another Angry Birds pic.  Don't worry, I haven't gone back on my promise of new material other than the birds, I just still have a few bird concepts I want to hammer out before I forget.  Patience! 

This one's also my first foray into trying to make a 3-dimensional perspective, so let me know how I did.

Okay, okay, I know you want some new stuff besides birds.  If it's any comfort, except for some small "doodle" size sketches this is all for the birds right now.  Either way, ya'll should get a good laugh out of this one.

Two more entries for your enjoyment.  The first is some Angry Birds sketches I put together.  I was doing this late at night and I was tired, so they're not the best, but the convey the point.

And Now!... The Moment you've all been waiting for!... *drumroll with kazoo ending*  New art that isn't birds!  Be warned though: this one had it's origins in an undefined and unexplained brain fart.  So, you should get a kick out of it.

Afternote:  The print on that last one came out kinda small.  If you can't read it, tell me and I'll post a copy of it here.
