Awesome! You work so fast! I love how all your works have that thought process that you can see from sketch to finished piece. Wonderful!

Cool Claus. Good to see the drawing with all the basic shapes you used toconstruct him.

I really like it a lot! It's interesting to see all of the little changes you made on the way to the final colour piece.

GREAT piece. Do you apply txture after the piece is finished, or is it handled in Painter with paper txture affecting your marks as you make them?
