When is the banner due? I need to know so I can either keep/stop procrastinating and do it.

It seems, dear fellow, that I looked into the abyss a tad too long.

Time is fleeting, and so for weekdays, in short supply. In other words, now mainly active on weekends.

That's a pretty darn good cylinder, Shook.

I personally suck at shading, which is why you never see it in any game I've illustrated, so I'm very envious of people who can shade well.

The "always use an off-black/off-white" rule is partially for the benefit of the colors that might be around your sprite. Say if your image is on a website or inside your program or in a game that's full screen with a low aspect ratio (you get black bars on the sides), white and black are really common colors and its not desirable for your sprite's pure black/white to match up with something that's in the background.

The other reason is because whitish purple > light purple > purple > dark purple > almost black purple makes it-

I think you guys need help with your grammar and spelling. I linked something that I think you'll be able to understand.

There's a page there entitled "have got". They used as an example "I have got a doll". Eugh. The "got" is redundant.
I don't trust that site at all.

Have got is apparently common in spoken english in the UK. There's quite the confusing and convoluted discussion about it here: http://english.stackexchange.com/questions/120721/have-vs-have-got-in-american-and-british-english

I even noticed a few spelling errors, as well as missing capitalization everywhere.

It's why I used it. :P
