I highly recommend (carefully!) burning works -- cathartic perhaps? Getting the sucker back for putting cramps in the hand?

Coming from you, that makes me want to fire up the stove and burn all my works! ;D

as I've mentioned to you on another site quite recently, I really love your work. The details of this creature's body's textures are fabulous. I also love the cheekbones. This is really great. Unique.

I'm guessing something to do with heresy. It's always heresy.

Variety is the spice of life! Laughing out loud

Love that old world codex feel. I want to know the story behind it being burned at the edges!

This has the feeling of an ancient naturalist documenting his or her fantastic discovery as carefully as possible. And it's just lovely, too! You work in a remarkable variety of artistic styles. I'm impressed!

Thank you Vera! I always preferred scorching to tea-soaking. Must be the pyromaniac in me.

That's a veyr original and interesting way of presenting. A lovely peice of art! What struck me as funny, is that I immediately found myself remeniscing on how me and my friend used to draw treasure maps, and burn the edges,wrinkle, water stain them, making them look worn and anchient. Ahh, brought some good memories.Smile
