I can tell you have great depth perception because i've been drawing (from my imagination) with pencils and colored pencils and colored pens,not paint,for like around 25 years and I've saved every one of them,but I dont know how to try and do anything professionally with them,or how to get them seen,because I dont know anyone in the art world and i'm weary and hesitant about putting them on the internet for fear of someone copying my ideas as their own...

It's a great pic, it has great composition, color and humor. And painted by our favorite Kiwi painter and person depicting himself? woohoo.gif

Designing and drawing magazine art or whatever else art for a job would be a dream come true for me and I would hardly ever have to leave the house while working and I could set my own hours and schedule...

Some of my color drawings are incredibly detailed and took me months to finish drawing a few hours a night...

What size is your painting in this thread?

Our birthdays are so close and we are so much alike in most respects. I work from home doing graphic art, I am my own boss.
Nice work when you can get it.
