My Left Toe...

for a bigger scanner. It does nothing but get in the way, and get hit by door frames anyway :p And when I use paper bigger than A4 sized, I can never get a nice copy of it with the camera. One day a bigger scanner will be mine (no idea where it would go tho, foot stool when not in use?)

Finished these dogs, done in a very loose style, but that is what I wanted to achieve this year. Be looser and not so focused on detail in everything. Now, to focus on backgrounds :p

My foot isn't broken, yay!, but the cracking sound I heard was probably the ligaments snapping or tearing (ouch), hence why my foot hurts so much. As long as I don't do anything stupid with my foot for the next few weeks, it should be fine. But of course, I walk into the door frame today :/ hmmm might be a good idea to put foam pads on all of the corners...just to be safe :p

Foam slippers maybe? I hope your foot heals soon. I'd love a bigger scanner too. And a studio, big work table, easel.....
The dogs in your picture look great. Nice work!

Love the dogs. Yes "Getting Looser" (in a non-slaggy way of course) is what I strive for constantly. I tend to fail miserably though.

SNAP! With the damaged foot ligaments. Got a cortisone injection in mine today. Sucks being hobbled. Hears hpoing yours recover quickly.

Found you through Norma.....always nice to meet a fellow artist.

Does sound like maybe you should wrap yourself in a foam rubber suit....though. LOL LOL LOL

Oh, take care of your foot, glad it is not broken. It's the Domino Principle, once you hurt something, you try to compensate and then often more hurts result.
Nice dogs!!! (Loose or otherwise!!)

Hope you're foot is better. Ow. Solid footwear does sound like an idea.
As for a bigger scanner; do they exist? Tried to find one and couldn't.
With your camera, try for natural indirect light such as a slightly overcast day.
Great dogs! You've been so busy with art lately.
