"A (wo)man should hear a little music, read a little poetry, and see a fine picture every day of (her)his life in order that worldly cares may not obliterate the sense of beautiful God has implanted in the human soul."- Goethe

So, when we were paddling about at girls' camp the first time, one of the younger girls frantically paddled to some other girls in our group, upset about some creatures she had found. In the shallow waters were some giant leeches! They were several inches long and had legs and horns!

I don't know if you know much about leeches, but they do not usually come equipped with appendages. In fact, I think it might be a genus requirement. I drew this salamander using the grid method, and interestingly enough, it looks very similar to those ferocious leeches:

The grid method is an easy way of ensure all proportions, angles, and details are correct, by studying then reproducing art section-by-section. I had forgotten that this is a good tool to keep in mind. Never fear, though. It's at the forefront of my drawing mind now.
