    Off the top of my head:

    -Guache (sp) paint, oil paint maybe.
    -Toned paper sketchbooks
    -All of Ashley Wood's Popbot series ( got my hands on #3)

    More to come maybe...

    1. A less hectic class schedule.
    2. Prismacolor markers. I go through about two sets of warm gray a year.
    3. creta Color aqua monoliths. The best water color sticks available. I tried them two years ago and now I'm hooked.
    4. Penny Bond white paper.
    5. Painter 8. I still haven't upgraded.
    6. White pigment markers, paint markers etc. I use those exclusively for highlights.

    Other than that, I can't think of anything.

    Dunno, all I know is that at the place I work at has none. Might bug the manager to see if she can order any in.

    -Painter 8 upgrade
    -some dvds (for inspiration of course)
    -one of h.r. giger's books (haven't decided which one yet)
    -external hard drive, because im running out of room for "reference" pictures

    -some spiral sketchbooks (these two held together by glue are not durable)
    -large pad of newsprint, so i can practice larger drawings
    -some woodless graphite

    and hopefully, some sense of time so i can draw more, and do less: of schoolwork/staring at the art on the forums

    alla prima would be nice. they're out of print (right?), so it has to be bought from someone - not sure if i can trust $150 to someone just yet...

    LEGO.

    Prisma color markers and pencils.

    A lightboard.

    Artbooks such as intron depot, starwars...

    A game console.

    Painter 8 and PS 7 or CS.

    I might buy myself a color laser for my tax refund, perhaps a Minolta Magicolor 2300 W.

    Some hero points to buy a higher initiative stat, I'm too lazy.

    ....oh, and a hot pantyclad babe that pops out of a cake.

    Well, a tablet would be cool or a scanner. But I doubt I'll see either unless santa really does exist... I always kick myself when I realise what I could be spending my car payments on... fancy cars are fun, but damn... there are better ways to have fun.

    I am glad I found this place. I have not done much of anything since I left college eight years ago. I really needed the comradre and friendly competition that comes from being sorrounded by other artists. I have therefore decided to use all of you as a means to motivate myself and get back into creating.

    A good 21" screen. My current 19" is making my eyes bleed.

    An A3 colorprinter would be cool. And an A3scanner to go with that.

    But thats just wishfull thinking, i know exactly what i will get, for i get the exact same thing every year, sketching paper and underwear.

    Depending on a girlfriend to be your muse or motivation is as silly as depending on a forum of strange artists... oh wait...

    YMMV but my girlfriend does not assist in the proliferation of art. We usually find other things to do.

    I wonder what percentage of CA members made the same comment I did... the old, "thank goodness I found this site. It will so motivate me. Blah blah blah." I also wonder what percentage of members have scrawled,"I suck!" somewhere in their sketch book. I bet many of them do not suck as badly as they believe.

    Secretly I want a spell from some sort of necronomicon like tomb that steals all of the mad skillz from people like Zhang, Feng-Zhu, et al and then dumps that marvelous loot into my wee noggin. All the skillz and abilities without all of the work and dedication!
