Hallo all. Cheesy I've been prancing around the shadows of this forum for awhile, so I thought I'd step out and post a few of my drawings. More can be found on my website. Feedback is very welcome.

They're very nice.  Do you use Prismacolors?  I only wish I could see a larger image (more detail) on the ebay auctions.  I know you want to protect your art, but perhaps a watermarked detail image would be good.  Wouldn't have to be of the entire piece, maybe just one or two focal points.

Oh my gosh, I love them!  I really like that, you could totally have a career as an artist (I mean, if you don't already   Wink ).  I would buy one right now, but I'd really like it to be larger than 4X6.  What would it cost me for a larger one?  8X10? 16X20?  If you'd like to im me and let me know that would be so awesome.  Thanks!

Thank you all for your wonderful comments. Cheesy

To Zephren: I'd love to illustrate a children's book one day. I'm in awe of most illustrators, I don't know how they do it! I'm so slow when it comes to art because I only work on a piece for about a half an hour at a time and then get distracted by something else. *sheepish smile* I fear it would take me forever to do an entire book. But hey, perhaps one day. Cheesy

To Lothruin: Yesh, I use Prismacolors. They're glorious. Thanks for the idea of using details. This is the first time I've ever listed my art on eBay, and I'm not really sure how much it costs to add extra pictures and such. I'll have to definitely look into it, since you think it would help.

To BebbyCat: *falls over* Thanks so much! Cheesy I'm actually a graphic artist for a newspaper. My drawings are more of a hobby, but I'm hoping to keep improving and advertising and one day make it more of a career. I'm flattered you're interested, and I'm off to PM you right now. And for everybody else, yes, I do have larger prints available, up to 12x18, they'd just take longer to ship because I have to order them first.

I thought I recognized the touch of prismacolors.  They are indeed glorious.  I couldn't ever use anything else.  I believe they are no longer made by berol, is that correct?  I've got three or four color-sets that I've had since high school, and they are one of those things that...well...If I was escaping a fire in my home, and I had time to rescue three belongings (assuming all living things had already escaped) my prismacolors would be one of them.

Since I've used them, Prismacolors have been made by Sanford...but then, I only discovered them about a year or two ago. I actually did an ad campaign on them in school, but I don't recall anything about Berol in their history. However, most of the pens and other writing utensils I use are made by Sanford and I never had a clue, so I probably still don't. Grin And that's hilarious that you'd save them while escaping a fire. Of course, I would probably do the same thing. That 120 set was expensive!

Like I said, I've had mine since high school, which was *&&#$^(*$ years ago.  (Ok, I'm not that insecure.  I think my oldest set is about 14 years old, and I got it as a freshman.)  They were made by Berol until pretty recently, I think.  So were the markers.  All my multi-color sets still say Berol on them, though I think I've had to replace my black and maybe another one or two since they switched, but I couldn't remember who made them now.  It isn't just the expense of the sets.  (Even back then, my 48 color set was in the neighborhood of $60, and I've got that and a 96 color set, plus a couple of 12 specialty or "new" color sets.  I've got a pretty penny invested in these things.)  Because I've had them so long, I've got a lot of emotional energy invested in them as well.  They're like an old friend.  Smiley  They've been with me longer than my husband or my ex husband combined.

Ooooh, you sound like you have quite the collection. *drools* I was lucky and found my 120 set for about $70 at the same website where I had to buy a damn expensive portfolio for my senior graphic design show. The portfolio now sits buried in my closet, but my pencils are proudly posing next to my bed. That's awesome that you've had them for so very long. What kind of artwork do you use them for?
