    Summer vacation over here so I've have lots of...err...spare time to do mostly pointless things. While I usually draw fish this rattlesnake is coming along pretty well so I thought I'd share it. It needs some detail/erasing added in the back, maybe fool with the neck and rattle some more and then I'll add patterning to it...unless I get bored of it first!


    anyone else sketch during spare time?

    Very nice! That takes a lot of patience to do all those scales.

    I used to draw back in the days when I had time for such stuff. Maybe I'll post a few later on tonite after I get home.

    Well done!

    Very good.

    I haven't done any proper drawing since before university. I always wondered how some people can't draw though - you just copy what's in front of you!

    I used to draw a lot until I went to art school. Ironically since then I haven't done it much... I did it so much it put me off it for a while. Someday soon I'm going to get into botanical illustration.

    Very nice drawing Nflytrap and Jeremiah. It does take a lot of patience but extremely rewarding in the end. Hey endparenthesis, what school did you go to?
