Hello

I've been drawing for a few years now and am a moderator at another drawing website so some of you may either recognize my name or my work. I specialize in graphite and find hair/fur rather easy so I enjoy drawing animals and cats in particular. But I also can do skin adequately so portraits can find their way into my portfolio as well. I enjoy helping new drawers get started because sometimes information is rather difficult to come by and many artists guard their techniques like gold. We all have unique gifts so nobody can duplicate my work nor can I duplicate anyone elses so sharing methods and techniques makes sense to me. Here are a couple samples of my doodles. I'm not sure how attachments work here but I tried to show 3. Ken I don't like the way text works here - all formatting is lost when submitting. And my attachments disappeared. Oh well ... looked like an interesting site but if I can't upload anything then there isn't much point.

That is really great work.

I would like to see more of your cat pictures. I had a mostly white cat I would like to paint but been apprehensive to try it because of the lack of detail.

Thanks guys. Oddly I can't see any of the images I attached so I was thinking nobody else could either. Many people think it is impossible to draw a white animal on white paper with a black pencil and it doesn't seem possible in those terms, but it really isn't so difficult. Just make the white a shade of gray. Oh yeah .. the formatting gets jumbled on this site. I had this set up so it could be read more easily but I have to remember I can't do that here. Ken

This is the cat I wanted to paint. Looking through pictures he's got more color than I remember.

Once again I cannot see any attachments or thumbnails. This site needs work. I can see it is going to be difficult to use. I'm not intending to be rude here but I can't see anything you are talking about which makes it impossible to communicate. And clicking 'submit quick reply' does nothing - I have to go to advanced for the site to respond. I am not going to be active here I'm afraid ... at least not until they fix the site. Sorry. Ken

That's strange. I see the images I've posted as well as yours. I'm not very good with electronic things but wonder if the problem is at your end. I will see if I can get you some help.

Thanks. I probably am not at fault here - I owned and ran a computer repair facility for a number of years. It's always possible though. I'm logged in, checked my profile options but see no attachments - only large black text saying Attached Thumbnails. Yesterday I stopped by and they all were there but they never showed up for me on my first post or on any but that one subsequent attempt. Not very useful for an art site. I also see that the bold button has no effect meaning formatting of text is not possible. That will get in the way as well. And again, "post quick reply" is unresponsive. At least advanced works.

I did report the problem but haven't heard anything either.
