Just a great job, could not ask for more. Background looking good, I have come to love that 9xxb. You have mentioned that sometimes you have put in as much as 4 or 5 hours in a day, that alone amazes me. At best I can do 2hrs and that is in 20 to 30 min and then rest. Your skills are just at the top, congratulations

Thank you Bob. As far as time...I tend to take breaks, but I also get so 'INTO' the drawing (this is truly what I love about it, the focused, meditative flow state) that time just passes without my awareness. I put something like 7 hours into this one late Saturday into the very late evening. I simply couldn't put it aside until finally I forced myself to stop around midnight and then came back the next day (yesterday) to finish.

Thank you for all your support and encouragement!

P.S. I just sprayed both this one and the Oppenheimer and put them with my other drawings..... feels lonely without her looking over my shoulder as I type....weird....but expected after 5 years I guess....time to find a new image! :D

Thank you Bev! Much appreciated! Strange the five-year delay on this one. :shock: Feels great to finish it! Need to find a next drawing though....
