    I finished up the inking the day Ronin passed. It was just really, really sad to hear about him. He was such a pretty boy. And I'm really glad you like it so far. :)

    Just letting you guys know my new job is 10 hour days plus almost 2 hours commute. So I'll probably be working this mostly on the weekends for now. (sucks, I'm sorry!) I'm gone from about 6 am to 6 pm right now then pretty dead afterwards. But I have 3 day weekends every other week so hopefully those weekends will be really nice and productive.

    Quick update!

    I finished Breeze's first because she needed them sooner than everyone else. I didn't get pics but I mailed them off (hope she can get pics of them lol). It's been slow going guys, working 10-12 hours trying to get caught up on my job lately (out of town training and fun stuff like that). Will keep plugging away though, trying to do a couple hours a day minimum and have laid down the base coats of all the ones I've got inked and posted here. I should have them done in a couple days. :)

    Not trying to make excuses, just explaining. Thank you all for your patience again! My three day weekend is coming up and I am going to try to paint 8-5 on sunday and monday at least. :)

    Laur did you ever get my last PM? It was a couple weeks ago and I've forgot since then. Apparently USPS ****ed up. If you didn't get it I'll PM you again.

    Okay here's the update... sorry it's so slow. :(

    I really underestimated the amount of time each takes and I've only had a couple hours each week to work on them.

    But enough of that, here they are so far. I'm very happy with the final result.

    The final part of Taqroy's set:

    Ryan's- I just noticed that the ear bled a bit too much, I will fix that!:

    Sael's:

    Sizzle's- I will get a better scan- yours is too long to fit on my scanner, plus Ronin's neck I tried to fix a bit and so it's still wet and that's why it looks weirdly dark. I'll scan it again this afternoon.

    Here's the update (colors look WEIRD on this photo, they're much much better in real life!):

    I finished it! Once it's dried I'll get a picture. Pip makes me smile every time I work on him. I really love the paper it's on too. It's the first time I've done one of those on real watercolor paper and it makes a world of difference. I'm still mad the colors are coming out wonky in the photos.

    And in other words, I just stuck my paintbrush in my iced tea.... Doh.
