Daily: Enforcer - Dave Pryor

When I read the topic, what came to mind was some kind of unrelenting, unstoppable force. I thought of Robocop. In this "enforcer" depiction, I was going for an armored vigilante cop look. Maybe this guy was a racecar driver at some point.

Predating Your Posts

It's become obvious that, though contributors may be submitting artwork for a particular date's topic, chances are that he or she won't actually be able to get the post submitted before that date arrives and passes. This is especially the case with The Daily Drip. We're all busy and can't be expected to stay up unhealthily late just to get a post in on time.

So I propose we henceforth predate our posts if we're submitting them after midnight of the due date, and specifically, I suggest we set that fictional post time for 11:59 PM on the final day of that topic's relevancy.

For example, The Weekly Stream switches over to a new topic every Friday morning at 12:00 AM. So if you're submitting a post on or later than that time, change your Post Date and Time to the preceding Thursday at 11:59 PM.

You can do this by clicking the "Post Options" link in the bottom left corner of each post form. Doing so drops down a panel that allows you to change the date and time with which your post will be displayed. Proper predating practices will keep all kindred posts together chronologically, which will be useful for browsing the Archive later on.

If you think this is a good idea, please say so in the comments. If you think it's rubbish, say that too. Regardless, I'm willing to do the dirty work and fix all the current posts if we decide to do so.

That is all.

Happy arting,

Daily: Knight - Dave Pryor

This "ghost knight" was influenced a bit by the new TR2N trailer I saw a few days ago. Not intentional - it just kind of turned out that way. Also, I think the knight is part of the horse - I just wasn't interested in drawing his legs.

Some sorta robo guardian enforcer bot. In the future, robots with hockey-stick legs are a common design...

Daily: Toaster - Bob Rissetto

This toaster was left on "10". Hope you like it crispy.

This first one is an unlikely pairing of personalities. The way toast pops up just lends itself to the "free spirit" persona while the cold metal box is more reserved and logical.
