Thank you. I'm pretty happy with how the fox came out. Out of the three, I think the animal looks least like the source image, but out of the three it feels the most balanced. I have this weird compulsion where I think all of my drawings need backgrounds, because even though I can't draw realistically, I'm convinced that because there's a background to everything in real life, anything I draw is incomplete if they don't have one. Unfortunately, backgrounds are usually where I end up ruining a picture.

I tried to draw a mountainscape one time, and I think all I drew were three or four black lines on a single sheet of paper. Between you and me, I think extreme minimalism isn't really all that great art, but I looked at these lines I thought "If I literally do anything else to this, I know I'm gonna mess it up." So I drew an extremely minimalist piece, and I hate it because it looks halfway decent and all it took was about thirty seconds to make, so I feel like I cheated on it. I'll see if I can dig it out and share it on next week's Pubski if you'd like to see it.

I'd like that a lot! I think some minimalism can be good.
