    Very beautiful and nice reflective surfaces.

    Could you hold my beer while I dig out my license?

    nice one Sammy

    this was originally done for the freehand frenzy challenge, but its been elevated to a 'serious' piece as work in progress, so here it goes...

    barb stroke shape throughout

    'artist at work in progress' even

    what can I say ?
    it is better to say nothing and appear a fool, than to open your mouth and confirm it is so
    and a donkey is always best left to bray alone...

    I'm impressed with the amount of humor and expression you have in the image with a few lines. Well, maybe there's alot of lines but only a few shapes.

    thank you Nancy

    mostly lines as you say - shapes in the eyes

    there are 355 lines in total - most milling around the body waiting for something to do - but its only a first take give 'em time

    cartooning is shorthand - well it is the way I do it anyhow.... that's why for me the control of the pen is so important - no second chances with fast and free spontaneity - if you screw up you just has to play it again from the top and hope you don't go stale...at roundabout reshoot #23 that suddenly becomes difficult

    Lol, I look forward to what those lines do when you give them the go-ahead

    Thank you Bill, Burpee, Steve J

    Steve J - I'll second what Burpee has already said. You have an excellent knack for providing expressions to your drawings with the minimum of strokes. The picture looks complete just with the expression. Great skill.

    Sammy, I love the egg. And Steve's drawing is brilliant. This card is more or less finished, just needs a bit of tweaking.
