Myopic Growth by ChaosKatie Myopic Growth by ChaosKatie
9 x 12 on Smooth Bristol Board, Graphite H - 9B
______________________________________

Been working on this for the last couple weeks. It's definitely my favorite to date. Anytime I worked on it (short, hour long bursts due to lack of free time) it felt like I only completed a tiny section (2"x2"). But I just kept chipping away, if I felt I wasn't into it, I stopped. For fear of messing it up. I have a tendency at rushing through the end of a drawing just for the sake of finishing. What winds up happening is that I rush it and mess up horribly in the very end. I am trying to vow to myself, to stop doing that. Put it down and come back, when patience has returned.

I really have been sitting back, studying art from those I admire and find inspiration from, and absorbing technique. I think I now have found my passion, style, and feel I am turning a new page. I feel real good in my life and I have a few of you to thank for it, as well as my amazing husband. So thank you for your art and imagination. You all inspire and amaze me.

Thank you for the kind words and I am very happy my image inspired one of your stories.  However, you should probably use a little more discretion in such actions.   There are a lot of artists out there that would not be appreciate being told their art is being used without prior approval.  I think you may fair better by asking first in the future.  I, on the other hand, am ok with it.  So I thank you again, but please keep that in mind from now on.  People can be very sensitive to the usage of their artwork. ;)

I'm sorry. I'm new to this community and I saw other people posting comments along the lines of "You've been featured here" followed by a link. I didn't know whether people check up on these, so I thought I might as well post and then ask. However, that said, thank you so much for letting me use your art and letting me know. I think it was brilliant! :D (Big Grin)

Looks fantastic. The amount of work was well worth the effort. I love the look of the honey comb/web texture, not sure what to call it. But I specifically like how there are two layers to give more depth. That must have been very tedious. Excellent job!

Well thank you very much, I wasn't sure what to call it either. We can go with "sticky tissue substance", lol! :D It was pretty tedious but well worth the patience, I must say. Thanks again for the kind words. ;)
