This one does not want to get finished, so, here it is. It's basically, as an artist, do I create what I'm drawing, or does the picture itself take on a life of it's own and dictate what must be put down.

I may come back to this and finish it someday, as of right now I'm not that pleased with it...but, what can you do.

You idea is really cool. And to the previous commenter, this dragon looks nothing like Strong Bad's dragon. You obviously don't watch enough Strong Bad e-mail to know what you are talking about.

:-) Wayne D. Hingley replies: "Thanks. I've never even heard of "strong bad" as to stealing from him? If I was going to steal from anyone,it would be someone with an enormous amount of talent."

Dear Mr. Wayne D. Hingley
I am writing to you on behalf of a client who, at this present time, wishes to remain anonymous.
You are in violation of article 13 subsection c of the 1994 act against public usage of stuff strongbad creates* and unless a full apology and retraction of the offending content is forthcoming civil action may** be taken against any and all persons involved in the creation of the image including, but not limited to any outside influences which may have, through action, or lack thereof, infringed on strongbad's or any affiliates of hitherto mentioned strongbad's legal rights.
Yours angrily,
Dingus Squatford

*The dragon you drew is clearly a duplication of an original art work by my anonymous client.
**But probably won't.

:-) Wayne D. Hingley replies: "Well, at least you called me Mr. And to an apology and retraction...screw you!"

Very interesting concept. The hands are well done though I am not sure if the pictures thumb is angled correctly , possibly turned down the wrist a we bit more.
As too the first comment... it's too bad so few respect the purpose Thomas had in creating this site. to comment on, critic, and share art, and learn from each other.

:-) Wayne D. Hingley replies: "Thanks Laura. I've no idea what 'strong bad' is and if someone is upset over "MY" scribbled dragon, than that's their own problem. I love the sharing/critiquing/learning from each other, that's the reason I like this site so much."

Oh wow! Nice work here!

:-) Wayne D. Hingley replies: "Thanks Laura. I'll be over to your site...soon."

I gotta say this one i like great idea you draw verry well.

:-) Wayne D. Hingley replies: "Thanks. This was one I had just given up on."

Interesting picture.

I have wondered about that.
Been trying to listen harder to the picture to get it done.
But that only works for 2d/digital painting. For me 3d does not talk to me or I can't hear it yet.

:-) Wayne D. Hingley replies: "Thanks. Time wise (for me) it's harder to get pics finished."
