Well done - this one was a favorite I think.

Thanks for the great night. Such good reference photos. I had a hard time deciding which one to draw for tonight, but plan to get to some others later on in the week.

Really great work, Caron. Thanks for hosting the drawing event today I had a lot of trouble deciding which to do. I think you have handled this in a very economical way although it has the feel of the original. I'm impressed!!

tuarara-thank you and your welcome! I too had trouble choosing which to do even though I picked them! Kinda wanted to do them all! But this one really stuck out(and obviously with others too since it was so popular!) It was the light on his hands that really attracted me to it. It was so insense and illuminating!!
Irina- thank you!!! Well, I hope you can do something during the week and post. I would love to see it!!
imp-I was surprised to see you didnt make it. Hope it wasnt the time frame thing....but would love to see you do one. Im always so thrilled to see what you do! Thanks for you kind comments:)
Cathy-I was glad to see you joined in! I hope this is a sign that you will continue...it is very much like an art class isnt it? It is so exciting to see the different variations that come out of the same images! I really liked yours btw. Im really happy that you found it enjoyable:D
Surfina-it was popular!! I was hoping that some members would give it a shot-it was so cute but Im amazed at how many brave souls we have!! Your very welcome for the images and Im glad it appears to be a success!
Auntie and Artdudette-Im so glad you joined in! It is a fun night and a learning experience I think for us all! It really was rather fun hostin and hopefully will do it again. I really liked seeing what you did with the images. Thank you both for your warm compliments!
Ariad-I hope to finish it! Thank you for complimenting it! Kinda wish I had chosen a different colour for my paper but have never done skintones before so thought the paper would do the job for me! Now is that cheating or what! And Im also glad that you liked my choice of pics!!
Sundiver and Yielding-thank you for your comments! Im really happy with all of you for doing such tremendous work with these images!!
