Hans, that is just amazing. I love that dragon. What a great
project, and thank you for showing us the steps involved Alma

Hans you got some serious time on your hands. Are you a trust fund

ZOMG Hans! This is my favorite of yours! I love all things
dragon-related. El

As always, Hans, pretty impressive work. Would you be willing to

Wow! Thanks for sharing.

Awesome! A lot of work and patience, thanks for taking the time to

Oh, Hans!!! Thanks for showing us the steps, and especially your

Thanks to Hanuman, Ton, and Charles - without whom Orchid wouldn’t
