Wow, really amazing. I love the deliniated linework and colour, especially how you've used the paper. Yes, inspiring indeed, as an Australian I am aware of the relations between both our countries, and the effects the US has open the globe. I sigh a breath of relief that Obama is has one the election, my regards to those in the US.

yeah well now we are all scewed because hes in office still im depressed
alzith Featured By Owner Nov 7, 2012  Hobbyist Digital Artist
don't be depressed. i was, but then i realized that we have to accept it, and even though these next four years will be really hard, you can't lose your motivation because that will be the arrow to america's knee. I decided that i'm going to make these next 4 years even better than the last. Make the choice of how you will let the election affect your success.

Thanks ;) that is exactly what my parents said we'll its better to have him in for the four years because if Romney won we would be considered racist and there would be riots and stuff but yeah I guess that we will have to stick it out with mister socialist / communist

Hi, I am Teddy. Once you read this you
cannot get out. Finish reading this
until it is done! As I said, I am
Teddy. I am 7 years old. I have no eyes
and blood all over my face. I am dead.
If you don't send this to at least 12
people I will come to your house at
midnight and I'll hide under your bed.
When you're asleep, I'll kill you.
Don't believe me?"no"
Case 1:
Patty Buckles
Got this e-mail. She doesn't believe
in chain letters. Well, Foolish Patty.
She was sleeping when her TV started
flickering on and off. Now she's not
with us anymore. Ha ha patty, Ha ha!
You don't want to be like Patty, do
Case 2:
George M. Simon
Hates chain mail, but he didn't want
to die that night. He sent it to 4
people. Not good enough George. Now,
George is in a coma, we don't know if
he'll ever wake up. Ha ha George, Ha
ha! Now, do you want to be like George?
Case 3:
Valarie Tyler
She got this letter. Another chain
letter she thought. Only had 7 people
send to. Well, That night when she was
having a shower she saw bloody Mary
in the mirror. It was the BIGGEST
fright of her life. Valarie is scarred
Case 4:
Derek Minse
This is the final case I'll tell you
about. Well, Derek was a smart person.
He sent it to 12 people. Later that
day, he found a $100.00 bill on the
ground. He was premoted to head
officer at his job and his girlfriend
yes to his purposal. Now, Katie and
him are living happily ever after.The
have 2 beautiful children.
Send this to at least 12 people or
you'll face the consequences.
0 people- You will die tonight
1-6 people- you will be injured
7-11 people- you will get the biggest
fright of your life
12 and over- you are safe and will
have good fortune

Don't worry about the drooling moron. I'm guessing that 50-90% of American civilians don't understand why the United States is having trouble.
You ever wonder why we got a nonwhite president now? So that we could blame him for shit. Conspiracy? Nah. The government is too divided to organize one.
trome9412 Featured By Owner Dec 21, 2011  Student General Artist
wow... :fellarectum:
TheMilwaukeeProtocol Featured By Owner Dec 21, 2011  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
LOL It's just an idea. Another idea is that it's less scary to criticize a president than insurance companies and banks. We can't control the latter with a simple vote.
tayswift13 Featured By Owner Jan 21, 2011
Oh my...this is beautiful. The way you used color...the detail, the eyes..the white...the paper...the expression on his face! everything! I love every aspect of this!

I can't say I agree with Obama's policies himself, but his likeness here sure is charming! You did an amazing job giving him a lifelike appearance with a lot of pizazz. The pencil work here is awesome. :)

Wow... and with the exaggerated features you managed to make him look like he's actually all the way black! Nice job with the illusion there!
Mykaelous Featured By Owner Jul 16, 2009
I dont like the guys policies, but the drawing is great. It doesnt look presidential, but more of a "what obama would look like if he worked a 9-5 job" picture of him.
