    Very good my friend. I like to get the pencil out every now and again. Will try and dig some out.

    Very nice! I LOVE the brachy! What medium do you use primarily? I've been drawing and painting dark stuff from my imagination for the past few years, but many people have told me to go back to my roots. As a kid I would obsessively sketch every type of insect or Arachnid that I could find. My freshly molted G. pulchripes would make a great oil pastel drawing.
    ugghhh! lol I currently have a huge black and white Maine Coon Cat Noisily yelling/meowing up at me, wanting his soft food. He was my alarm clock today!

    Thank you and I am really jealous of people who can draw from their head. ....I can only work from stills :(
    I mainly use coloured pastel pencils or just normal pencils. Not done any for years now as just can't seem to find the time anymore. Really miss not drawing though as very therapeutic.

    i should take more time to read these posts i guess :p they canned my co-worker 2 weeks ago, i'm still trying to catch up from that. Doesn't leave much time for forum browsing. Figure another week and everything they slacked off on will be settled and back on track, then i'll be the dirty almost-old man lurker again ;)
