IF: Poise



























I know this is a stretch but the only one with poise in this is the little blue birdie with the spinny hat. And this is one reason why I need Photoshop! The length is 19 inches, too long for my scanner (so here's the two halves plus the full length painting). Hopefully one day soon I'll be able to purchase it and begin learning. Is that the only way you can handle something this size?

You have a lot of great illustrations on your blog, and this is no exception. :) Great drawing skill and great colors.
Photoshop definitely is an amazing tool. Hopefully you can get your hands on a copy sometime.

More gems added to your blog, I see! These are all just wonderful!

I finally, recently, broke down and got an oversized scanner for a cheap 180 (most are 2000 and higher!)- just arrived today and hope it works. Now I can scan sketches and send them to clients SO much easier!
