    Beautiful!  I am assuming that what we have previously seen from you has been drawn from scratch, though?

    You (and the other artists) should post this sort of thing more often.  This is a sadly under-used part of the Community.

    Our herring gulls are red listed birds.  Think about that the next time you hear some flaming idiot calling for a cull of them.

    What an interesting idea and transformation step by step from start to finish, just beautiful Seymour and something we could all have a go at doing.   As Clare says, it would be lovely to see more threads like this :)   I for one love seeing such talents and creativity.
