Aaah, one of my kin in North American Nativity:
Well, I am from the Cherokee, but all tribes are brethren and sistren. I have founded a new tribe though, called Nohian.

This is most certainly not sloppy! It's absolutely marvelous. If I could draw half as well as you I'd never put my pencil down.
Faved for certain.

You and I share the same thing in common..We're both sloppy artists. :lol:

I have to say, you got a touch for old people. I think that's awesome!
