Oh, I love your idea, Smkie, and I LOVE "Potlicker Mary" even more :D I wish you could have seen Bimmer with his head down in the round Blue Bunny ice cream carton the other night ;)

This is the pic i did it from:


I used to draw a lot when i was young , and loved it. want to get back to it. but have a lot to learn. Practice , practice.

Necterine..my puter has been down so i am sorry if i am long in getting back..i am so HAPPY You posted your sketch!!! I know we have lots of talent on this forum and so far you are the only one to join me....you sure captured the expression!!!!!!!! What a wonderful piece to come back on line and see!!!!! i once had a teacher tell us a school wasn't a teacher and a bunch of empty vessels..instead it is a group
of people all growing in the same direction..sharing in each other's successes and learning from each others stumbles..i hope the others join us soon..i have a few to post soon..just quickie studies which is where the true learning is done..and boy am i rusty. I drew a couple men sitting on a bench while i waited for aaron to get out of his appointment..and a halloween card i am toying with

That's a really great drawing! I also love art, and I have many drawings of animals. I will gladly post them, they may not be as good as yours, but I am only 15, and every year my drawings improve. :)

I will post them as soon as I get them uploaded to this computer...

twilight your sketches are so much fun..a lot of people do not realize how hard it is to draw another artist style..that is why you can often tell when it isn't the original..your work is very good! i would never know that spongebob's creator didn't draw this!
the very best thing about being an artist is you never but never get worse..each piece teaches you something new and your ability just keeps building. Thanks for posting!!!!! soon as i get my scanner to work i will post some more..i ought to dig up some stuff from my teen years to share where i was back then..omgosh
