    "Intbel" ... aka Raymond. "Can't" is not an option.

    Compliance is futile. Resistance is futile. Just do your own thing an' ignore 'em.

    Very well rendered, we'll be standing in line for lessons, thank you very much. Like the texture in comparison to the first post, very skin like, this one, whereas Princes Di felt like she was a Barbie doll, well she's a doll, just not a plastic one now. I'll be sure from now on to tuck my hair behind my ears, as it is the only thing that has any room for improvement, and you may argue with me, but for once, I really am right.

    Nice expression on her face, bit of a smirk, did you tell her a joke you couldn't post on the forum?
    Every day's a new day, "draw" on what you've learned.

    You are right, of course, the ear isn't right (neither are a few other things, but what the hell, I'm just learnin') and the highlight in it is a bit much, but then, would you approve a picture without bling?

    >sigh< no pleasing some folks is there?


    No - never told her a joke, just whispered suggestively in her ear.

    I think she already knew Charles wasn't wearing anything under the kilt, as has been discussed on proper kilt wearing in the Xara Graphics forum. Under such circumstances of embarrassment, the ears normally glow red and have stronger highlights, so there, darn it, you are right after all. Do you ever get tired of it?

    An impressive drawing - but I too like the work done on the hair. How it's drawn with limited lines, yet has a realistic appearance. Nice.

    You made a better job of that picture than Rolf Harris made of his portrait of HM
    Queen Elizabeth. IMHO.

    Thank you Valery ... and thanks for not pointing out the not-so-good-bits in the face (I know they are there and what they are)

    Yup, even though I say it myself I also like the hair. Crowning glory an' all that. I have posted the .Xar file for the hair here.

    LOL! Thanks, Norman. I haven't seen Rolf's picture of Liz ... what'd he use, a pot of B&Q's best emulsion and a six-inch brush?

    OK, for us non-Brits, what is the story behind Rolf's portrait of the Queen?

    Will, it was just a wee joke at the expense of Rolf Harris he is an expat australian comedian/singer/artist
    who really is a very good artist. Queen Elizabeth posed for him to let him do a portrait, opinions are varied on how good or bad it is, or as the man with the wooden leg said it's a matter of opinyin.
