    My favorite little rat

    This is my cousin's grand daughter, I don't know what that is formally but I call her cousin and when she calls me "uncle George" my heart is captured.

    The original looks a lot better than the web version..

    The last time I kept an open mind,
    my brain fell out and the dog grabbed it.
    Now it's full of dirt, toothmarks, and dog slobber.
    No more open minds or dogs for me.www.gms9810.com/

    Endearing expression. I never could figure out about cousins/nephews/nieces either. "Cousin" sounds so generic. So if she's promoted yourself to "Uncle", I'd be charmed and flattered beyond measure, as I'm sure you are.

    So the question is whether you drew this from life or from a photo. Either way is fine for me, but doing it by hand with a pencil on paper offers an option of setting up in the same room and getting her to hold the pose. Naturally with portable devices they can do that with the software as well. But paper, pencil and a live model gives a different, old school experience I was wondering if you had here.

    Anyway, well done George!

    Alas, they had the nerve to move to Florida, the reference from that was taken on Thanksgiving. I have been drawing from life as much as possible lately.
