Well. This is it.
40 fuckin' weeks of Trig and the final test is tomorrow morning. Based on how well I preform on these practice regents (NY's "final state test"), I got like a 50/50 shot of passing. This all depends on how much actual trigonometry they put on the test, seeing as I'm good at some of the other concepts.
If I fail though, I'm forced to go take summer school classes for it before retaking the damn thing in August. If I do fail, I'll be considered a failure and probably have a horrible summer since that's literally two and a hald extra months of my least favorite thing on earth during my time to escape that bullshit.
Wish me luck, everybody. And may the state's questions grant me a 65 or above.

Greetings, loved ones.
I need to work on anatomy and adapting to other art styles, so I need stuff I'm unfamiliar with to draw. So, leave me a recomendation on what you want to see me draw and I'll do it for free. Afterall, knowledge is the best gift of all.
I'D REALLY APPRECIATE THE SUGGESTIONS!

There's the actual art thread since I've been doodling left and right all the time and haven't submitted a single fuckin' thing for people to look at and comment on. Tell any thoughts you got on 'em and hopefully I can get even better, because the world is catching up and I need to hurry my ass up before some young pablo picasso takes my spot in the future because he worked harder than I did. So, please, enjoy the smell of amature works and feel free to tell me what might make it smell less like baby powder and confusion.

I know I used to brag about my art a lot as a 9 year old despite my art actually being terrible. My art has gotten expceptionally better, and I've been working on it a lot this year and a couple years prior. I kinda fell behind though since I basically neglected my favorite thing to do for an entire year (last year). So, would anyone be interested if I perhaps made a thread? Honestly all I want to do is keep improving to make sure that I don't fall behind and that I can keep doing what I love.
Also here's a small sample of a random character I made. It took about 20 minutes total. Godhelpme.

So, I was at some weird college festival where the students show off their fancy young-people machines they made with legos, wires, and duct tape. A lot of them were actually really cool. I make my way to the "gaming and design" department, to which there's no surprise that this is the biggest attraction. Like, "You mean I can go some place to try videogames and learn more about them? SIGN MY ASS UP." Except they also had some Wacom Cintiq tablets that fuckless kids were fucking with, while meanwhile I was fucking amazed at that technology. I kept bugging some poor student about it until I finally just told her that I want to start in animation, and she responded by being the most helpful and enthusiastic person I have ever met.
She gave me lots of tips and insight, and also told me I should look into going to some college that you go to instead of graduating highschool. That idea sounded hella awesome to me. Problem is, is that I have no fucking clue if that;s what I should do. I already had a solid plan going for myself and this alternative is going to be more expensive. At the same time, I really want to learn more about what I want to do. I love to design characters, and I'd love to bring them to life. I'm stuck in a tough spot. And hell, I don't really want to ditch the friends that I have now. But I'd pretty much fuck 'em over the opportunity to follow my dreams.
The journey of life is reaching it's next step and I'm gonna need a little luck.

So, I don't think anyone know just how long I've been here despite only being like 16 in three days. So, here's my fucking lame-o origins story.
It was actually my dad who found Newgrounds when I was like six, because he had found Dad 'n' Me on some shit flashgame site called "heavygames" or something wacky. I actually remember a bonding moment between us being him picking up the poor animated kids and throwing them into traffic and us laughing like a bunch of sadists as they went flying. Afterwards, first thing my dad says to me is to never tell my mom about it and to never to play this. So, of course, as a rebellious six/seven year old kid decided "FUCK PARENTS" and hopped right on and accidentally clicked on the link to NG instead.
I was immediately thrown into a world of murdering Powerpuff Girls, shitting on things, swearing, and just more violence. My pure child-like mind was filled with wonder and confusion at this beautiful monster. I just kinda played flash games on and off up until '09 when I finally decided to actually make an account and be a dedicated member of NG. The story beyond that point can be seen in the cringe compilation that are my old forum posts and art section.
In short, I've been here since '06 when I was only about 7 and Newgrounds is basically a huge part of who I am now. It fucked me up as an already weird kid, but helped me grow into someone who ain't half-bad at that art and comedy thing and is actually planning to go into college for animation.
I might start uploading art on the forums too since the art portal set-up is weird, butwhatever.
HAPPY PICO DAY, YOU GLORIOUS BASTARDS.
