Although, I do think an over indulgence in work is on the forgivable list

The title is perfect too

Looking good - I love how this process takes form.

I guess in years gone by, a similar medium would have been those pen and ink drawings, with water colour washes.

Exactly that Mark, except I'm using translucent inks rather than watercolours.

I genuinely love watching stuff like this unfold. The best thing about the diverse talents that human beings have is that some people can do things to standards that others simply can’t. Being able to exercise the bit of you that’s “special” in a way that brings joy to others is awesome.

Me too. I love seeing dc66's work for example, or Mr Slug's bridge or Greg's pencil drawings.

Black inkwork done (it's actually a very, very dark purple/black - doesn't photograph that well.)
