JB>>Beautiful, yes. Byrne, no. Juliet Jones by Stan Drake.<<

Small interruption to note Stan Drake's "The Heart of Juliet Jones"  is still available.  That guy could draw!

Carry on with cool thread.

John, I paused before posting, long enough to acknowledge that it'd be embarrassing if it wasn't you who drew it.

Although it turns out that it wasn't, I hope no offence was caused. The face is beautiful and I do see enough similarity to have convinced myself that it was done in your hand. I do hope that comes over as complementary.

I'll now need to investigate the artist mentioned, who, till now has been off my radar.

Having Stan Drake's work mistaken for mine is a GREAT compliment, Darren!

Back when JB mentioned the "buzzards" I started taking Darren's hard work in gathering all the "pearls of wisdom" and started putting them into a document/PDF in case the thread was delet-i-fied. Well, the September "issue" is available and if anyone wants a copy, just send me an email and I'll send you the latest version* in PDF.


* I am constanty fiddling with it. Latest version may vary.

Something, imo, JB knows about for sure! I've long admired how John handles wheeled vehicles, ever since I saw this image, in fact.






[Edited to fix Link]---Thanks Eric.

Darren, the cropping figures link is broken. Looks like you double pasted part of it.
