This Drawing was originally done when I was a lot younger. I decided to redo it as a Christmas gift for my mother.

Medium: Watercolor and Color Pencils (Prismacolor and Crayola)

I really like this picture, well, what I can see of it anyway.

Unfortunately, the one thing I've got to complain about is the size. This is so large that

1. the huge file size is taking forever to load. When I noticed that it wasn't popping right up, I saw the filesize and hit my stopwatch. At 8 minutes of loading, it had loaded only to the bottom of his sleeve. I started typing this at 8 minutes, and it's now 11:44 and his lower foot isn't visible yet. This isn't with a dial-up modem, either, I've got a cable modem. At almost 30 mb, that's waaaay too large! :\ Done. Total time: 14 minutes, 40 seconds, not counting the time before I hit my stopwatch.

2. it can't be seen. In 'small form' it can. But if I bring it up to full size, I can only see a small portion of the upper left corner. I've got a 25-inch monitor and can only get half of the width of this on my screen. I can see lots of light and dark brown, and a small triangle of blue in the lower corner when I bring this to full size.

I love your work, as you know, and this isn't me ragging on you. People actually do this a lot. They forget about the resolution sizes on peoples' monitors. Mine is 1920x1080, so at 3850 wide, I can get about half the width on-screen, but only 20% of the 5016 pixel height. So please, if you would, please shrink the size down on this one. Just 'edit' the submission and submit a smaller version with a smaller file.

I really like this one! :D It's just massive! D: Five stars for the picture, half penalty, though, for the load time and size. :\

I hope this info helps. :)
