Well, he's finally done! I hope you enjoyed his progress. I am very pleased with the result. I'm pretty happy with the photos. I had to do some fill on the background in Photoshop, and will need to get a bigger paper for next time.

I felt like I was using muscles I hadn't used in a while, but it was like riding a bicycle. The input and support of those following along was very helpful. Thanks to Stacie for kicking my butt and making me start and of course to Gin for purchasing him!

I already have an idea for another one. It will be the same basic size, and based on a costume rendering I did in grad school mumble-many years ago. A 17th century shepherdess wannabe, only she's a hippo!

Thanks to Ang and/or Gin for the monocle idea and thanks to Ken for the donation of the little lion fob! Now, if I can just figure out how to format better in Blogger!

I can't tell you how excited I am to soon be meeting this little guy. How spectacular he is! You've done a wonderful job and I'm amazed how soon you finished him!

I have loved following your progress and seeing the creative process in action, I hope you will continue to keep us updated on the camel as well as your next project!

Absolutely amazing. Love the small touches like the monocle and the fob. WOW.

Just amazing! Like you never got off the bicycle. (Credit due elsewhere for the monacle, I'm glad whomever suggested it!) The lion fob is so perfect. I love the second regal side shot, bravo on the yummy photography. So glad this will be with Gin so I can see it in person some time!

Hey I have been having this strange urge lately to suggest we have a St. Prozac's Piratte Bazaar reunion and jump start the shop. It's a crazy idea because I don't feel I have the time.... but.... wasn't that fun?!! (other than you having to manage all the administrative stuff...)

Thanks for your continual inspiration. I can't tell you how great it is to see you working again. I think seeing your creations was a large part of what inspired us pirattes to all the brilliant creative collaborations we did. Amazing considering most of us live thousands of miles from each other!
