    Funny how quickly I can draw sometimes when I'm really inspired. I haven't drawn anything for me in quite some time, so I took this morning and began and finished this drawing. I've never tried a background before, and also this wasn't drawn exactly to a photograph... I used a reference picture, but much of it was from my head.

    Wow, I love it! I am so glad I meandered into the creative corner forum.

    With your permission, I would love to set that as my PC wallpaper for a while. Let me know if that would be okay with you.

    Fab-u-lous! The sky looks so natural and you did an amazing job on the facial features. Your talents just don't quit, do they? What was your inspiration for this?

    Thanks Taralyn! I was reading a Louis L'amour book called Jubal Sackett. In that book it tells how the indians, in the 1600's, were being forced from their lands by the settlers landing on the coast and changing everything. So I got this picture in my head, of a lone indian looking over his shoulder at lands that would no longer remain unchanged... =)

    How sad.... and true.... I saw a quote once - "When white man asked the Indian what they called this great land before it was settled, they simply said, 'ours'." (not sure if that's the exact verbage but you get the idea).

    I agree. His face truly tells a story.

    Such talent, is there anything you can't do?

    I can't:
    -Bake a perfect pie crust
    -go one day without laughing
    -stay either warm or cold for more than twenty minutes
    -read all the way through Madame Bovary
    -sing tenor
    -play the cello
    -find the right girl

    There's more, but somehow I don't think you're interested in hearing about it. ;) But thanks Linda!

    verbal...

    i have no words... this is just beautiful.... your awesome, dude.. really.

    i have a stong indian heritage..and actually, the indians found it inconcievable that white men thought they could own land... native americans acutally felt like the great spirit owned it all, and we were keepers..
    shame to think how we have kept it, huh?

    your talent is beyond anything i could ever hope to achieve....your amazing.
