There seems to be quite an ongoing problem there, atleast from my point of view coming from Australia.. I came across so many wanting money you begin to get picky about who you give your money to.. In Seattle the week before I came across a man in the middle of the road asking for a place to stay or whatever anyone could offer for himself and his stranded wife all I had was a couple of spare coins and my leftover lunch which I gave him and he accepted graciously.. In my hometown, of Perth, Australia a bum or a beggar is an extremely rare occurance - I guess with our welfare system there shouldn't be any...
It was a shock to me in any case, and this is just one of the few cases and as you can tell these two aren't the hardest done by of all.. Oh well I contributed to their liquor fund in exchange for taking the photo
Well, I got bored and wanted to upload something, anything to dA, and this will probably go into my scraps sooner or later. I just found the Motivational Poster maker.
So, all I really want to say to this is, why are people so moronic? Do they expect great changes to happen in 38 days?
It took our 32nd President (elected in 1932) 100 days to pass a majority his New Deals and WWII (1941 - 1945) to bring us out of the Depression completely. Did I mention in those 100 days a majority of the Senate and the House were on his side as well? Did you know in his second term he had a Recession where the stock market crashed again?

Do you expect Obama to suddenly surpass FDR (Franklin Delano Roosevelt) with a good bit of Congress against him?
I say develop some patience and pick up a history book. -_- Your complete ignorance is what makes the world pick on us. We're in for a long ride and there is no quick fix solution to this crap.
Well, that is the end of it for my rant of boredom. If you see anything historically incorrect, note me. This is going in the scraps soon.

Note and Edit: I never supported Obama at first, so this isn't because I love him. But he is our President. We must support him as he is the leader of our nation. The saying "United we stand, Divided we fall." Wasn't just a wasted breath, you know. xP
Okay, moving step by step into Felix's cast by making actual drawing of one of numerous villains brought into 50's Felix tv show by Joe Oriolo. Since Master Cylinder is basically mechanized being, it was very easy for designers to push through numerous concepts of his appearance. What you can see above is one of many such ideas that were included into actual cartoon, yet I have seen this particular one on some of the intro's as well as some of dvd covers--and that may account for most recognisable design of all that were made. As for the drawing itself, it appears that simple-looking characters are actually the hardest ones to draw properly. I still wonder if I failed or had some little succes on this one....
Master Cylinder belongs to Felix the Cat productions, which belongs to Don Oriolo.
Fun fact: Lafayette was about the only person Washington would allow to hug him, and the young marquis took advantage of it a great deal!
This drawing was made as a birthday present for a friend; the two generals having a relaxed moment at Valley Forge. Goodness knows, there wasn't a whole lot to be happy about that winter.
Micron ink pens, Crayola markers, two Prismacolors (that's all I can afford), my new Bic markers, and one white gel pen. :3 No references used for this pic, but you will see the influence of a certain engraving in Lafayette's face.
This is also a call-out to *Cszemis. I miss you, my Laf!
