Very good, they show originality, technique and likeness. are they this size or all individual drawings if so what size are they. The overall idea for a children book is is a good one. If they are individual drawings, I would put them on the site to sercure copyrright. :) :thumbup: :clap: :clap:

They are 11X14 on smooth bristol. The book contains a one page summary of each president's life and administration. It was quite a job but I loved doing it. I got to reference a lot of material and learned the process of making a book. I also laminated each page and designed the cover etc. This is actually the cover to the book. I did it in Photo shop 2. I used create a photo merge and it took quite a bit of time to do that since I am new to the computer and was not reducing the sizes of the originals. Now I know how to use files better but still want to learn more about doing art on the computer. Next step is digital art. Not sure if I will like it but it is a challange and I love challanges. Say I can't do it and I'll prove that it can be done!!!!

I personally like a brush and paint but I have used the computer to save a painting when their to dark or light. Well done on the book and the drawings are excellent. I you put them on the site they are covered singly by copyright. :) :thumbup:

Thanks it took two years to make all the portraits here each is 11x14 I have a book started with a page for each president. Didn't want to tax young minds so I made it in summery form for the little darlings.

Thanks Lanka it was a large undertaking but I am so happy with the results. This is the cover to the book I wrote on the Presidents. It is a nice outline one page description of each president and a few facts on his personal life too.

I was actually lazy and figured to post the front of my Presidents book instead of doing the individual 11x14 portraits. So it is unique since I had drawn them over a two year period and it took that long to compile the information for each one in the book.

What an ambitious project to have begun and pursued so long, Christine. You have every reason to feel good about it. All I have is a collection of Presidential spoons that had belonged to an Aunt, and they only went as far as Pres. Nixon. Along the way, that spoon has disappeared, but I still have all of the others. One of our sons made a spoon rack for them. After a few years, I got tired of them falling out of the rack, and the constant up keep of polishing them.

I have made a book with a one page summery on each President. It took me two years to get the book done. The drawings really didn't take as long as doing the research for the one page print on each of the Presidents. I don't type very well either so that took a really long time.
