    started off ok

    Then marking out the scales went to absolute poop!

    So decided to try and salvage the pic by doing a bit of scratch erasing, so out came the pointy bamboo skewer and about 6 hours later I ended up with something a bit better

    Finished piece looked ok in the end I think :)
    A4 synthetic paper with Com-Art paints using the Timbertech AB, probably took Me about 20 to 25 hours all told :)

    Looking at the reference I don't even know where I would start. Pretty sure I wouldn't start. It's just so much detail packed into a small size. I have no patience for that stuff.

    I have no patience for practising lines and dots, so doing something complicated seems to help Me get to grips with things :)

    that sounds like something I would say....
    or
    take a big bite and start chewing.
    or
    jump in the deep end and start swimming
