25 Cent ID by JeyBarnes 25 Cent ID by JeyBarnes
This came out looking way more Symbolic and Portentous than I intended. What you up to, subconscious?
I am obsessed with those little 25 cent toy-vending machines. To the point that they feature prominently in my dreams at least a few times a month.

Now it's time to leave the capsule if you dare.

Hurhur look John I did it.

Yeah, you drew this three years ago. I'M STILL GONNA COMMENT.
Do 25 cent machines still exist? I can only find 50 cent machines.

I really, really like this. I...don't really know why. I just do.

Holy crap I can't believe it's been three years.

They do! At least, I see them around here. Most of the time they just have candy, but some have the lowest of the low-end cheap toys. And sometimes I see the same toys from 25 cent machines elsewhere in 50 cent ones. I am a connoisseur the quarter machine market.
And thanks!

Come on, stop coming up with awesome things and executing them beautifully! To qoute Mr Bennet of Pride and Prejudice "Let the other young girls have time to exhibit"

Honestly. Too awesome. :ohnoes:

Man, I should just get like a hundred of those capsule things and make something crazy out of them. They really are the neatest little things. :D

Hawhaw, those things are so fun. I hope you're not suggesting you have a value of 25 cents, though. <3

I envy how you draw transparent stuff. And that bee is awesome.
You look tiny and sad and as if that capsule's gonna keel over any second.

This is such an awesome idea, man I loved those vending machines. They used to have such cool stuff in them. Now the only ones I see are full of fake teeth and bling. :[

I KNOW RIGHT. I used to collect lizards from one that they had in the local Food-4-Less. I still stumble upon ones with swanky loot, though! You just gotta hunt for them. :sherlock:

This kind of stuff from you always makes me smile and WONDER. Which is great. :)
I love those little toy machines too, and I'm a sucker for dream imagery, so this is awesome - the icon bee is a great touch.

waah D8! The problem is that I'd end up spending SO much money to finally get your capsule. All I'd probably get are stupid temporary tattoos and those rubber sticky hands.

This was an awesome idea, m'dear! :D

It DOES look all portentous and symbolic! It also looks really snazzy, and I love the idea. You're worth at least 50 cents, I'd say.

I'd think you would be worth more than a mere 25 cent!

But awesome picture, as usual :3

I used to ask my parents for change every time I saw one of those machines.
