Don't worry I will pull this off. I don't think that you can see what it is yet.

Well I am not sure how to post it on here.

Perhaps it is too big. I was having trouble earlier trying to post a picture and I had to save it at 50% in order to get it uploaded.

It was too big. Now I have it small enough and it appears in my work in progress folder but it still not showing here.

If you refer to the puppy WIP, it is on the homepage, looks great so far.
So glad to see you back! How goes recovery? I was praying for you! :)

Yes that is the one, Bella the puppy.

I thank you for your prayers. I didn't have the implant turned on until Tuesday. I have not had any tremors since then. Still feeling odd.

I am so glad to hear the surgery has stopped your tremors. That is wonderful news.

Looking forward to seeing your WIP develop. What I can see so far looks like it is going to be great. I'm a dog lover.

Wonder why the system works for uploading it to your album but not to the thread....weird.

I found a way around the system. I was able to upload to my thread. I am a dog lover too. My ShihTsu loves my horses. I have to keep her from going under the gate and hanging out with them. My big dogs prefer to bark at them.

Moving along. Why is it when a dog has his tongue out just a bit he is about 1000% cuter? Are you doing this from a reference photo or from memory?

I really like the start of this drawing :) This doggy looks so cute already so when you'll be finish I'll probably die when I'll see how much realism and cuteness comes out of it :D You made me laugh with your comment about your dog drooling just :D

WOW I can't get my dogs to stay still long enough to take a picture no less get a good look at details and commit them to memory to do a picture. WOW that is impressive.

Yeah, the fur pattern and the shading that makes it hard to see the other eye are giving me trouble now.

No tremors? That's fantastic! I can understand why it would feel odd! Praying for continued success.

She is. She loves to give kisses, catch doves and gophers and despite weighing only 8 lbs she loves playing with Napoleon our 135 lbs rottweiler.

Bella giving Nap a lecture on why a small dog with muddy feet makesa better lap dog than even a clean big dog.

Here's a link to my you tube page where you can see the two of them playing.

Awww that was so cute. Bella just wanted to play with the Rottie and the bigger brown dog was trying so hard to get her to play we her. She was coxing with a toy and everything. I love dog watching. I have 4 and we currently have a dog house guest that will be with us until October.

The other dog is Daisy. She is Bella's protege. They're a funny pair. She taught Bella how to catch gophers and doves. Mommy got Bella to be an indoor fru fru. Daisy had different plans. We have a forth dog Macy. She's a loner and doesn't get along with the other dogs.

Artistic license. Every work I have done in the years that I have had Parkinson's I have left parts unfinished.
