It's been a long day...

Well, Loyal Legionnaires, it was such a long day that my dog was even feeling neglected. That is until I bought him a new rawhide bone at the market. My day started this morning at three thirty....a clap of thunder signaled the oncoming storm. And with my last lightning strike costing me a bit of money and trouble, I didn't want that to happen this time. So I got up and ran around unplugging electronic stuff. And since one of those things is satellite tv, I put in a good stormy weather dvd.....the one and only King Kong. I watched about half and then decided it was time to get to work..... finished the Phantom for the second time, finally late in the day. And also did some prelim work for another KiGor piece. Then I remembered I needed to grayscale this piece for the KiGor story. So just another busy, and productive day at Lightning Legion Secret HQ.


  1. Awesome! I call that a perfect piece to work on, when it's raining.

    If you don't have them, get some surge protectors for your electrical devices, and your sanity.

    Nice rawhide bone. Somebody's happy.

  2. I bet Kigor never has to worry about surge protectors.

    Tom, it has been interesting seeing the different versions of this picture. In the first version: UpATreePencilshalfwayWeb the lizard really jumped at me and gave a sense of dynamic motion.

    In the previous final some of this was muted for me. But the the shading made the picture much richer looking.

    Now in this final final version I can actually hear the rain beating down on the leaves - though for some reason it sounds to me like a Midwestern summer storm on the roof, HA (as my Nebraskan MIL would say).

    I like this most recent final the best. Kudos!
