The first one in 2012? I know that you have published plenty of stuff before this year. I guess this is supposed to be the first one of the year in chronological order. It certainly isn't arranged that way. Yeah, you didn't need to make any more timelapse drawings. I was thinking you were doing this whole thing for a calender entry. You usually mention when something's part of a contest.
Of course, this whole thing may not have been for any contest. Personal projects are the best. I have a lot myself and you could even count all these reviews as one. That doesn't seem too bad for a crown of thorns. You appear to be in a cave maybe?
