Yes... for the fucking love!

*please read this one! LOL*

I started out wanting to do a lot more with this picture... but, ever had one of those moments where you think... "aaah. fuck it! Lets scribble all over the damned thing!"
- Forget about trying to create some fantastic concept... who needs a good character... stuff the background... nevermind the anatomy... forget about all of it, and just draw something that you like.

Art is supposed to be FUN after all! Sometimes i forget that when im trying too hard.
So this... is just me enjoying painting/drawing something that makes absolutely no sence what. so. ever!
And by god it was fun! I should do this more often...
Anyway.. the title comes from my love of the goo goo dolls. I can sit and listen to their music for hours on end.. and that's exactly what i did. :)

I WAS going to disable comments, but i guess i dont mind. Enjoy my oh so crappy smudges of FUN. :D

I can't complain. The girl is actually quite cute. Doh! I love the tattoos.
It's a good thing I'm too lazy to look for your mistakes, but rather just enjoy your style.

You are a fantastic colorist! Your lighting is spot on with rim lighting and bounce.

I know this is old but I just love this idea so much! I absolutely agree with you - Art is meant to be fun! I think this should be common practice among all artists to just throw all their worries aside and just paint. =)

This looks AWESOME. I love how it looks like there is a window you are seeing the girl through and the shadow of the writing. For a scribble this is FANTASTIC

Did you feel that? That was a bunch of people Quiting DA because of your messing around and having fun :no: if this is scribbling then they should be closing a few art Galleries cause those guys are obviously not capable of holding a pencil,paintbrush,mouse,etc let alone scribbling at this level. your scribble has wonderful eyes and a marvelous expression :w00t:
