    Laur you are so talented! I love seeing all these updates and new pictures - I can't get enough of your work.

    I see Quinn in that last picture! She looks like a little bad ass, hehehe.

    Actually technique is my weak point. Everything I've done is just trial and error on my own and I think most art is just that. You can get instruction but really the only way you improve is just repetition, repetition, repetition. I drew literally CONSTANTLY as a kid. Even as an adult I do too. If I was in math class and had a pen in hand, I was drawing. It's almost involuntary. I really think that is what 99% of it is.

    However, classes certainly help a lot! Especially seeing people at work on their pieces and seeing how they do things. For example I learned to use a sponge on my watercolors and also to wet the paper beforehand this weekend.

    Mandy, sure! After all I owe you for Mia's wonderful collar that she wears every single day. :D

    OMG those are wonderful Laur! Can we still post in your other thread? I have tons of pics (of course) and I'd love to see how you interpret my crew.

    Also - if it really only takes you a couple minutes to do those sketches I think you'd do FANTASTIC on commission. I like those a lot and I'd probably be more willing to get those than color. (I hate matching stuff to other stuff - lol).
