    Howyadoin: that'd make a nice design for a writing pad.

    My thanks to Kevin, Twist and Greasemonkey. And yeah, I like that pad idea.

    That is totally tentacular. Beautiful brushwork.

    @kevinmellon - Thanks much, I appreciate that. A lot of people don't pick up on those subtleties. Also, I dig the perspective angle you're popping in the most recent piece above. That's a great shot.

    "My Little Cthulhu" piece, shown at full size. I did it as one of the demo pieces of what quality one will be getting once I put my $5 Icon Art commission option live:

    @kevinmellon: love the perspective and action going on there! Also, I really like your lines :)

    Little comic:
    By Amalgamated Biscuit

    I need a new sketchbook. Am I right in thinking that the Moleskine works with a nib and can take a bit of ink/watercolour?

    @ Greasemonkey: Re: your SNOM question about the stencils.

    Basically, I'm doing a small multi-panel painting based around the pattern of a Nautilus shell. Background is Tri-Art Liquid Mirror and iridescent stainless steel, with washes of phthalo blue and green. Then I stenciled the pattern on in phosphorescent paint (Tri-Art again), laid down a coat of gloss gel, and now I'm building up shapes on top of that with more gel. Once that's done I'll add more blue-green washes. In the dark the phosphorescent shines right through everything.

    Sounds spectacular. I trust you'll be showing the final result when it's done.

    @ Amalgamated Biscuit- You have to get the moleskin with the cardstock pages. The regular sketchbook moleskin can't handle anything wetter than ballpoint.

    @RanRan Really? I've seen people who use a fountain pen on the Sketchbook Moleskine, does it bleed a lot? I don't mind if the paper buckles a bit. I'm not sure about the Watercolour Moleskine, it's a few quid more and I don't like the shape.

    @biscuit I guess I'll do a test to destruction on one. And show the results here.

    @Brendan McGinley & @CHris G - my wee lassie, Alice [2], saw those grand colourful hero drawings and went into orbit, she loves them!
