  1. Hello all, I saw this tutorial from you.. and I got the idea for my Halloween pictures hehe. I have to admit, it became out a little funny, but it was a lot of fun while making it, thanks to you :) I really enjoy when I get to practice with your guidance, the small joys in this busy everyday life which we live in, are worth gold, and making my Halloween picture was just that hehe. But now back to the drawing and a glass of wine, I can do that right, it is my day off :D I wish you all a happy and scary Halloween.. Remeber eat, drink and be scary! – Nicolette -
