    Very difficult task to to reproduce the water splash. Great work.

  • Thanks. Water is hard to draw! I almost gave up on this one a couple of times before I finished.

    That’s pretty damn amazing, great work on the water

  • Thanks! I chose to draw this because of the water. I wasn’t sure how it would come out, but I am glad that you like it.

    That is awesome. It must have taken a long time to do that water. Very well done!

  • Thank you. Yes, this drawing is just one big splash. It took twice as long as I thought it would to draw.
