    I'm going to want one too, but I'm waiting until I do my pet sitting job next month so that I can pay for it myself without Josh's help

    Here's the two: I don't know why they're so neon looking. I could not fix the colors, they're not as neon in real life. lol Also bad scans and I need to re-flatten the paper

    Working on Logan and Dogs6 crew now! I'm going to try to get 4-5 of these simple ones going at a time. I'm really limited waiting for them to dry.

    Yep that's charcoal! I would definitely be open to more charcoals. They're the most fun and I do them the fastest. They are a good break from all the ink work.

    I got the scanner working FINALLY! I can FINALLY have the real color show up in the pics. FINALLY can see the detail on the charcoal! Only problem is it's smaller than the pics so I'm having to crop a bit. I had hoped to get more done yesterday but then we had tornados so I was busy all evening just making sure everything was going to miss us!

    Here we go, all scanned in.

    I just had enough time to do some inking so I went ahead and did those two easy ones. I still have Sass's ready to paint and want to get a few more inked so I can stagger them a bit. The biggest time consuming part is just letting them dry. It's easy to overwork that paper and ruin it.

    Those look gorgeous, Lauren! You should totally open an etsy shop--you could easily charge 3-4x what you charged us.

    Woo look at my puppers!! Laur I sent you a pm asking about a charcoal...can you put me in the lineup for another (the $50 one probably)? I have to find a good picture first and it might take me a little while.

    Here's what I've got going right now (plus Sass's but I need to take a pic of that since it's too big to be scanned).

    Thanks for your patience, guys! They're coming along slowly but surely. I had a broken brush pen so that put me on hold a few days then I had a couple days of really bad artists' block. (So I drew Mumbo Jumbo and it seems to help) I didn't want to give people crap drawings lol. I had to re-draw Ryan's like... 5 times. :eek:

    Also, I'm going to try to sketch these tomorrow:
    Tempie- MHMR
    Whisper- DC (by June 20th)
    Oakley- DC (by June 20th)

    And then color them all in one big swoop with the others. IT's easier when I have a lot going at once.
