That really is nice. I sent you a request to have this in one of my group folders. We have a contest going on right now called "Big and Small". If you would like to join my group I can enter this into the folder for that contest.
Hey I totally understand..just woke up myself. I'm running on barely 4 hrs sleep...husband was out late on a fire call last night so of course I had to be nosy and stay up to listen in on the scanner! I'm on the dept as well but I haven't been feeling to well so I didn't get to go on the call...damn it!
Anyway hope you like it over at AllAquatic. I will switch this piece over to the contest folder.
Oh, lovely! I've done some pointillism (technical drawings of archaeological objects, the images don't belong to me so i haven't posted them), so i have some idea of the work this was. I'm always amazed at the subtleness one can achieve with dots. Great work!
I know what you mean! It can be quite compelling work, too. I think this piece only got finished because I would fall into a trance of dotting, and the compulsion to carry on a bit longer overcame the urge to stop and have a break.
Ah, the photo reference helped. I didn't mention the photo ref did I? (Bad Hare). Yes, I got it from a book. Possibly 'Whales, Dolphins and Porpoises' I think. My memory is full of holes. I did one without ref before this and it was poo.
