I had been searching everywhere for a nice backround for my beardies. I found some great ones in some catalogues with beautiful scenery. But the cheapist one I could find was $500! I'm willing to spend that on a vet bill, or something like that, but a poster? So I kind of stole some ideas from there posters, and got a huge peice of butcher paper, and spent the last few monthes trying to re-created the landscape with oil pastels and paint. I'm finally done, and the clear acrilic protective coat is dry. I just put it up, and it looks pretty cool taped to the back of my tank! It didn't cost me anything, and its something I can be proud of. I'm so happy it turned out well, and I just got the best critique I've ever got on one of my drawings. My boy Fergus just tried for five minutes to eat one of the plants in the drawing, so I guess I did a pretty good job with the detail if I fooled him! I better go feed him now, to reward him for that little self esteem booster.
