Ah.. i wish I could draw as frequently as you do.. :( my job kills most of my time and energy...
but you need to care of your health too.. :D Once I tried to draw till late night and I had a severe head-ache the next day...
Yes.. I remember that... and the next thing you did was add me to your watch.... :hug:

haha.. i've only been drawing frequently because i have no job! i've been sitting at home taking care of my son, watching tv and drawing. when i get a job again i'm sure my postings will be half as frequent. sleep is overrated! no, really it's not overrated because i love sleeping. i have a 3 year old toddler-- does it really sound like i get any sleep?? haha...

thank you subh! you know, i stayed up until like 7 am to finish this drawing. it's something i do not do but for some reason i was so impatient with this particular drawing.

you know, what? that was your very first comment on my gerard way colored pencil portrait. you said you like the shadow of his bangs casting over his eye and cheek. ever since then we've been buddies. :D

thank you so much donna! i like looking evil-- i'm pretty intimidating which always gives me the upper hand in every situation.. not to mention my brutal honesty and confrontational personality. ;)

Haha, I'm so glad you took my comment that way...after I posted it I worried about calling you evil-looking...for a second...lol...then I figured you'd understand that I meant it in the best possible way, haha...:)
