kischi, themissinglink - guys, that's great to read! Thanks for the encouragement!
Some more pencils:
Ah! I've seen some of these pictures before, and I've been wondering who painted them. Thanks for the link!
Kim - without question, that is the most terrified-looking animal I've ever seen.
Awesome work - truly, truly awesome. I'll add my voice to those requesting process pics (with explanations!).

Onwards to an awesome 2007 (where maybe, at some point, I'll make it to another meet... but don't hold your breath)!
Punchy update! I love the reindeer.

Thanks for dropping by my SB the other day - making a return visit.
That jester's looking alright atm, not sure what kind of mood\finish you're going for. I'd just watch the weight of her hips,...
Values, saturation, contrast... *headaches*
Happy Winter Solstice, everyone (exact time was 0022, but better late than never)!
