As a life long Pink Floyd fan, I was saddened to hear the news that Richard Wright passed away on the 15th of September 2008. I first heard Meddle by Pink Floyd being played in the common room at college,I was only 15 and from that moment they changed my appreciation of music, I have every album they have released some more than once, I've been lucky to see them in concert 4 times. Wright always more in the backgound than Waters and Gilmour so his contribution to the group was often undervalued, yet without him, Meddle, Dark Side of the Moon, Wish you Were Here and the later albums after Waters departure would not of been the classic Albums they became. Things will never be the same to all Floyd fans, but the music lives on for ever, think I'll go and put Meddle on to make me feel better.

Here we have the finished drawing of the Ring tailed Lemur, size is approx 8x6 inches, as with all my drawings I'm never 100% happy, but that makes me want to improve next time.

As you can see a little more work has been accomplished, seem to be learning a little bit more every time I put pencil to paper which is what it's all about I guess. I hope to have this completed within the next few days.

Thought I would post this update on the Ring Tail Lemur, worked a little more on the tail, and staretd on the right handside of the body, also a little more detail added to the face, still not getting the effect I want, but practice makes perfect as they say!

I finished this over the weekend, the problem I have is that the scanner hasn't picked up all the detail on the wings etc, so not to happy with the finished image, but thought I would post it anyway. the overall size is around 5 x 3 inches, the water effect was achieved by blacking out the paper and then lifting the desired amount of graphite off until I acheived the ripple effect I desired, I have to say that i think this needs more practice!
