upon a series of learned behaviors,
woven together into patterns
that are infinitely fragile and never directly inherited."

Amazing design! And it does reminds me of the lid of those weaved baskets.With such amount of details, it would have taken me ages and a heart as patient as a mountain
:)

Just echoing the group 'wow.' Such control of the Pitt Pen. Is that a 'brush' PP?

Oh my gosh, this is great. It is so intricate. All of the shading etc makes it seem three dimensional. Great effort.
