'We'll get an anteater,' declared Kezia. 'For a pet'.

'It's no tifle,' explained Flo, 'it's at least three feet tall and six feet long, with great claws like a sloth's.'

'It's just like a bear, then,' said Kezia. 'Good'.

When I saw these awesome drawings on your blog I thought "how on earth can he draw like that in such a small size?", now I come to DevArt and see them again and even if there's been quite some time since then I can't think otehr than "HOW ON EARTH do you manage to work so wonderfuly in such a small format!?!?", I guess I'm dying with envy ;)

there were a bunch of typos in my previous post lol, sorry.

Yes, at Livejournal, I found it by chance when I was reading some comments on another user's blog and got shocked when I recognized your icon, had to rush inmediately to check it, lol; so, even if you posted them here first I saw them at livejournal (I guess Im not checking DA too often lately :( )

*Blinks.* Oh, dear. It was a good thought, but would be very hard on the flooring.

*Shaking head.* I can't count on an abacus how many times I've seen pictures ruined because someone can't master the look of a foot turned away and half-hidden by the ankle. But here you present it perfectly rendered, as usual, seemingly effortlessly. *Admires.* How do you do that? It feels like you've never had to practice drawing in your life.

Whoops! *Curls fingers away from keyboard.* Won't write another word about it. :)


Hours and days and months and years of practice, with the reward of a deft pen and sure transfer of images. It's logical... and no less amazing.

The little girl (Kezia, right?) is very endearing in her movements and words. She makes me want to take her out of the story and hug her! Hehe.
