Ha! I tricked you! This isn't a picture a painted miniature.
This is my first serious drawing. This is an ink over pencil drawing of a Samurai. I have always enjoyed drawing but I have not done anything serious for MANY years. Back at the beginning of December I started going through my daughter's art supplies (she was an avid artist who created lots drawings and paintings). Seeing the huge amount of stuff she had got me thinking about it all going to waste...then I starting thinkung about all the drawings she left. I could hear myself telling her that if she really enjoyed something she should just do it and worry about it. Inspiration hit and I decided to follow my own advice. For the last couple of months I have been drawing almost daily and going through various books I have aquired.
Don't worry, this new interset is not going to replace my miniatures...but I think that in time it will prove to be very helpful. I have already learned a lot about how to SEE things. From time to time I will be posting up one of my works, if I feel it is worthy.
