athlete's foot cream? Like lotrimin? It's supposed to help with jock itch, not just athlete's foot.

The faces are somewhat "distorted" I guess I would say. They're off from what they would look like in real life. Also, if you're drawing from a picture, it makes it harder to get the perspective just right. It's best to practice from a live model or practice drawing yourself while looking in the mirror. (I accumulated lots of self portraits lol) Also, where you've outlined the guy heavier in the second image, it's going to tend to flatten your image if you do that.

The dog looks a cross between pastels and watercolors. Pastels are fun to blend too. I like the way you did the shading and coloring on the dog - especially the chest area.

A hydrocortisone cream.

Oh my gosh, this is SO good and I never thought I'd eat black beans. Shoe peg corn is a little lighter and has longer kernels. It's in with the other corns as the grocery store and says shoepeg corn, but there's usually only one brand of it and it's 3/4 the size of a regular can. But, there's no water in it to drain out. I'd never heard of it either until this recipe was passed on from a co-worker. I've since tweeked it to my taste preference.

That's really neat. A very striking drawing.

They are a good start. People are always more difficult subjects to draw, but practice makes perfect. The only thing I'd really critique is that the perspective is off. I was a fine art major in college and it took me forever to get people's faces in perspective, but I finally manage it toward the end.

I really like the cartoon of the guys. That's really cool. The dog is interesting too. Did you use pastels? I think it'd really look neat in watercolors. For some reason I could always paint better in watercolors than anything else.

I don't know. That's what we've always called them. Maybe it's a southern thing? They're also called no bake cookies, and probably several other names as well.
289  BATH AND BEAUTY / Bath and Beauty: Discussion and Questions / Chocolate Exfoliating Body Wash + Chocolate Mint Foot Scrub Recipes on: August 09, 2005 08:51:42 PM
Here are two recipes I came up with recently. The body scrub smells like chocolate cake. Mmmm. The foot frosting is a bit messy though - all that cocoa. But it looks like frosting!

Chocolate Cake Body Scrub (c)

3/4 Cup Liquid Castille Soap
1/4 Cup Refined Shea Butter (Under Butters & Waxes)
1/8 Cup Ground Pumice (Under Bulk Ingredients)
1/4 Cup Apricot Kernel Meal
1 Tablespoon Cocoa Powder
2 Tablespoons Dark Brown Sugar
1 Tablespoon Avocado Oil
1/2 Tablespoon Vitamin E Oil
1 1/2 teaspoon Chocolate Fragrance Oil

Melt the shea butter over low on the stove or in the microwave for about 2 - 2 1/2 minutes at 60% power until completely melted. Combine with the liquid castille soap and mix well. Stir in other remaining ingredients, being sure to break up brown sugar completely so they're are no clumps. Fill an 8 oz. Plastic Jar and screw on lid. (I used a measuring cup with a pour spout for this.) Allow it to set up completely - it will thicken - for about two days. You'll use the remaining body wash to create the Chocolate Mint Foot Scrub Below.

Smoothing Chocolate Mint Foot Frosting(c)

Remaining body wash from Chocolate Body Wash Recipe
1/8 Cup Ground Pumice (Under Bulk Ingredients)
1/2 teaspoon lavender 40-42 essential oil
1/4 teaspoon peppermint essential oil
1/4 Cup dark brown sugar
1/4 Cup liquid vegetable glycerin
1/8 Cup cocoa powder
1 teaspoon Chocolate Fragrance Oil

Combine all ingredients and mix well. Pour into a 4oz. plastic or glass jar. Use the scrub to exfoliate the rough skin on the heels and bottoms of feet.

I've been decorating cigar boxes lately. They're mostly very simple though. I do have a really cool cigar box thought that has snaps to hold it shut, so I'm going to do something really creative with that one. Hopefully, anyway.
