Default Eddie and Elektra

I needed to de-stress after cleaning up some flooding in my basement (a lot of rains here in the Northeast) (not too serious a mess) and made this picture of my two favorites. It's a hand-made drawing enhanced by computer. I think it came out really nice!

Hi Dawn, hope the flooding problem is ok. By the way nice picture, that's a great way to relieve stress. Maybe I should get into art to de-stress!

You can have it for caudata if you really meant it.

And thanks for the compliment, Bella!

Thanks; I caught it happening, worked really really hard really really fast, and stopped it before it caused major damage. I keep my newts in my basment. If I'm not mistaken, some of my Tarichas were watching and were looking a little worried...I was covered with street-grade water. Then I was afraid to shower because I didn't want anything happening again...I'm all clean now, though. Someone's in for an upgraded sump pump...

Here, I fixed it; I was unhappy with my depiction of Eddie's prootic squamosal crest, and added a frame.

Thumbs up

It's raining pretty hard here too but your picture sure helped brighten up the day. I'm no good at drawing unfortunately.

I realize that I am coming in on this a little late but that is a very nicely done Dawn.
