Fourth Instar

A few more sections have been completed, and this piece is almost done. I made a boo-boo in the cobra and will have to doctor it with a bit of white paint. I've left it there for now for entertainment value to the type of person that likes to look for mistakes. I still have the outer side triangles and a few inside spots I want to add to. Five instars is a common number in nature, so watch for its fifth.

This is another sketch I made. I know, it makes no sense, but that has never been a limiting factor for me.  I do so like cephalopods. The title is "Oct-ane."  My friend Cindy is going to show me how to make etchings and I think this sketch will be the basis for that lesson. I'm excited, as I've never made prints that way before.


  1. If you make prints from Oct-ane, I definitely want one. He's gorgeous!

  2. Instar is realllllyyyy cool - how I envy your drawing ability! I can't draw to save my life, as my hs art teacher would attest to (much to the shame of my draftsman father) - I am very much a 3D person :) Oct-ane is cute - of course, he's purple in my mind :)
