I do art. It's what I do.
So, sketchy stuff and WIP stuff goes in here.
Starting with an August colored pencil test of me waiting in a waiting room:
I used maybe eight colored pencils? Something like that. I prefer to mix my colors instead of relying on buying 75+ pencil sets, and I don't trace—nor do I use an under sketch for finished pieces these days. I also don't melt or burnish my works to remove the texture, as I quite love the texture of colored pencils and do everything to enhance it.
And while I could finish out the edges of my works all neat-like, I don't really care to do so. I tend to be uninterested in accurate x-point perspective (or sometimes x-point perspective at all). I love color and illusions and that's my bread and butter art-wise.
I have a NSFW art thread, too, but mostly for nude figure drawing and... extremely suggestive... fruit art. I'm asexual, and do not want to engage in sex, but I'm (unexpectedly to those who don't know me) raunchy at times.
(I'm not ever gonna forget someone who took me to a burlesque show and didn't know it was such, and kept wanting to cover my innocent eyes. However, I already know what burlesques are, and I get an awful lot of sex jokes.)

And here's my colored pencil toolkit:
And more stuff including just about all the watercolors I use:
I'm a poor sick artist, so I buy a few high quality art supplies and make them work for me. And I later found out that I have few desires to increase the number of colors I have, and instead wish to find new ways to use what I do have, and to glaze/layer and mix/blend them into exciting new patterns and forms without following color accuracy.
My art party, everyone is welcome, the punch is not spiked.
