    It really is Liz, even drawing other people's pets when they have passed away, I get a bit emotional about it, when you draw them you really get to know them, getting their eyes right is the hardest part. I don't think I could focus so intently on Hugo for a long time yet.
    I feel like my heart has been ripped out of my chest, saying good bye to him this morning before going into work, he stood so quietly for me while I wept into his beautiful silver mane. He was probably annoyed that I got eyeliner all over his white coat!

    Very nice work!

    I'm so sorry to hear about Hugo. I hope things get easier for you quickly. You gave him a great life while he was with you, and I am sure he appreciates every bit of it.

    2 more commissions confirmed and deposits paid today, and one enquiry.
    Sheesh, no rest for the wicked! At least between work, and doing these commissions, I'll be kept busy for a little while and none of them are horses, so even better

    What do you do at uni? (if you don't mind me asking)
        02-04-2012, 09:00 PM
    At the moment I am working at the uni in the international student office, doing their admissions into the university.
    I started a bachelor of environmental management, but am going to transfer to a Bachelor of Law and study that part time externally so that I can keep working and living!

    Geez talk about artists block. I am getting a backlog of commissions, and really haven't felt like picking up my pastels in a few weeks. I have half finished a client's dog, am really not happy with it, I'm finding the colours really hard to match, the fur is not working.... I just want to tear it up and ditch it!

    Then I decided to finally go to the dr the other day and get my wrist looked at, it's been bothering me for a few months now, just getting very achey... it woke me up the other night and I was in so much pain that I finally gave in and took pain killers. Turns out I've got tendonitis in my wrist/lower arm, probably from a combination of so much time spent drawing, and the fact that my 'day job' is spent sitting as a desk on a computer, with my wrist doing repetitive movements.
    Not happy!!!!

    Oh Kayty! That sucks!!! Make sure you get some wrist rest! If you have to delay your commissions for your health, then you must, even for a short while. Customers will understand. If you push it, it could do more harm. Get well soon!

    You know the other day I had an achy back and some niggling thought told me it was the drawing. I've only just got back into it aswell!

    Look after yourself! Xxx

    Can you incorporate several different animals into one photo? I have a few really important animals in my life.. and id like them all to be together in a portrait. My first question is, can you draw snakes?.. id like my horse to be in the center, with my pitbull and my chihuahua on either side of her sitting next to eachother. And my cat, whom passed away 5 years ago.. on the other side of my horse. And my snake below my animals. Sortve like they are standing on grass and my snake is relaxing in it. I understand if that is something you can't do. But I figured it was my only chance at getting them together at the same time. I know it probably sounds complicated. Im sorry. I just had to ask. I have a lot of good pictures of them all for reference. Except my cat.. I only have 2 photos of her as I lost them all many years ago.. but I am hoping they are good enough to draw.

    I am in no hurry.. I know you said your wrist hurts. I just wanted to find someone willing to do it.. I can't wait for however long is needed..

    I will send you a private message about your request, I would certainly be willing to give it a go, though as I said, I am quite busy with a line up of commissions so you would be looking at a couple of months wait on the portrait.
