    Wow! That is an excellent painting! Great detail, shading, creativity. The ring looks so real and the detail in the diamond creates a great touch to the whole painting.

    Your use of Painter is wonderful and the sketches are so much fun. I especially like the last one with the huge teddy. I would love to see that one in color.

    He’d better not break of the engagement. He’s not likely to get a ring that big back!

    Cheers,

    This is a treat, love the humor and the action, that big ring he’s about breaking his back with, I hope she’s worth it.

    It is apparent that you like to draw and animate-Your work has a very lively feel much like the characters found in books like the Illusion of Life. Great work and best wishes.
