yeah another animal of the zodiac. hehe you are getting close to the end now. i wanna see i pic with them all alter ok?
hehe well better we talk about the current animal. i know a lot of people fear the snakes. well i think they are not bad at all. i mean they are not evil. they bit people when they are scared, not for fun. heh well and i can see you drew a pretty nice snake. its not a big one but its body ( well that thing is its body at all.. ) is very well done. the head and the snake tongue are pretty well done. and as always i love the coloring job and the shading. awesome pic sweet. cant wait to see more of those.

It is indeed ;P I'm just glad you got the joke! I envisioned creepy scenarios in which you were puzzled by my exclamations and asked for elaboration, and I then had to explain the mechanics of it all in graphic detail... :bleh: Thank you for saving me from that :thanks:
