      Theme: Vector. No renders allowed*! Everything must be a brush or a cutout!
      *You may use a render to add texture or effects (like a C4D render or using a regular image as a clipping mask), but the overall image must be made with vector brushes or ones you make with the pentool. If you really want a person as your center, you can use a render and put a color over it (see the banner for this thread), or use a brush of one, which can be easily found on DeviantART and other brush resource sites.

    So every Thursday night (or Friday OMG EARLY morning, depending on your time zone), I play music, back to back, with very rare interruptions. Now, I love my music, but I also LOVE playing request! Don't care what your genre of choice is, if you have a track you want me to play, or a mention you want me to make during the show, post it here! Or if you have an idea for a theme night, I'm open for them! I have a quirky, if mainly rock-based selection of music, but really like branching out and doing new things.
