Some of my recently finished work. Sorry for the quality - no scanner, so I took a photo of it. It looks better in real life, and the paper is a bit curled so bits are out of focus.

Wow! Better than I could do! That is really nice!

Very nice work

Some guys have talent like you do. And then there are guys like me who can't even pull off a stick figure. Very nice.

thanks for all the compliments! I started this as a commission for someone I met at NAFA, but then they decided they couldn't afford the original so I will be sending them a print.
Now I need to find another one to work on...

hmmm, Sorry Emily, this morning there wasn't a pic when I looked at the thread...just a box with a red X in it.

It shows up nicely now and its a very nice piece of art.

Ben that is fabulous!
One of these days I mean to try a head study - so far I've only done whole birds.

Anyone got a photo?

Great work guys! I can hardly remember the last time I sat down to draw something. I tried painting, buts it just not for me.
Heres a pencil I started for a friend awhile back but never finished.

Don't you have a RT on a dark burnt orange background?

and can you put it or is it on a t-shirt?

i have a good friend of mine that is a trained scientific illustrator. the stuff that comes off of the end of her pen and pencil just blows me away!! she started a mirror for me with a Coop and associated scenery around it. one day i will get her to finish it for me. great work though guys!!!
