I thought I'd share something Richard was kind enough to do for me. Apparently the mail was a bit of a b**** to do. Big Grin

Very impressive, indeed! I can't quite make out the individual rivets in the rings, though... Happy

Others got here before me about the drawing looking a lot like you. Big Grin

Considering the few lines used in the face it still looks exactly like Patrick: Very hard to do as one must get the essentials with so little i.e. no help from shading !

Nice work also on the rest of it: The body language / posture feels right as if it has mass and not just an outline of a person just floating there. Wink Cool

Not anymore. Wink

After spending 1.5 hours a day, five days a week, in the gym for a bit over a year that 's now pretty accurate (thank god!) Rick offered to do this for me out of the blue and I appreciate it.

As much as it pains me to say this.....Patrick has done a darn good job of losing tha ol' spare tire. I've seen it first hand. Drats, I hate some people. Razz Laughing Out Loud

Richard - great job!!!!

Not one shred of evidence supports the notion that life is serious.

Thanks Dan and yes, I am. In fact I'm feeling better than I have in years and close to being in the best shape of my life. Better late than never I suppose. As I'm sure you know, mail is very unforgiving of the physique and wearing it on a regualr basis was one of the things that motivated me. Big Grin

It's also very satisfying, in an alpha-male sort of way, to see 20 year-olds in the gym who can't keep up with you. Evil
