IF_Intricate

I am in the process of drawing a Green-Lip Mussel. It looks like such a simple thing to draw, but the more I look at it and draw it the more "INTRICATE" it becomes. This is why I have taken so long to get it finished. Stay tuned...(though it could be a while....I am lacking the patience for this kind of drawing at present)
