Hard to do those.

I worked for months and months to figure out ears. Then they suddenly "clicked". All the fussyness suddenly disappeared, and it became a fairly straightforward job.

My biggest problem is to be able to put all the disparate elements together, with the correct foreshortening, and without making any draughting mistakes like making one ear bigger than the other, or whatever. This STILL gives me problems.

Needless to say that since I went to all that despairing trouble myself once, I admire someone like you who is willing to do all that work to allow the inner artist to come out. Its not easy.
Hammer away at it. It may never stop being "work", but the joy which you exhibit in your sculpture will quickly become manifest in your drawing, and at least become "fun work".

Bob,
Thank you for the touching compliment and words of encouragement! It has proven tougher by far than I thought it ever would! I am surprised, and yet not, that you would be interested in art. But looking at the dedication you show in your armor, I don't doubt could create art too! Thanks for continuing to keep stopping by, I don't have the time to post nearly as often as I want to! But the semester is almost over!!!

oh, and thanks Joanne, didn't mean to forget you like that. I was actually very proud of my eyes! They are the first thing I notice in people.
