Like this, but there is a problem with spaces, which don't work. Just wondered why? If that might change at some point? Is it very complicated?

And I pressed post instead of preview!

There are actually two spaces first on the second line of that drawing and it should be/would be a magnificent glass of bubbly!

(Vintage Bollinger, of course, none of yer crass Mumm)

Do we think BollysNet is the upmarket equivalent of MummsNet?

You should try something like this:

Nah, it's a skill that very few have.
We can all try to copy Talcs, but she is a true artist.
A van Gogh to our scribbling attempts.

preview, jux. grin oddly, I had to do several underscores on the left and only a couple on the right for it to look even.

Jux Tue 09-Apr-13 18:11:26

I think some of the underscores cancel each other as the indicate underlining or crossing out or something. 'Tis most confusing for I am of little brain.....

I kept this from last year (I had to cut and paste into Word during construction - I was terrified that my computer would crash at any moment grin)

Spacing can be a big problem for MN emoticon artists. The only foolproof method is to Preview Message constantly until it looks right.

Underscores, asterisks or italic-y thingies do get cancelled out if they touch anything else - you have to work round this.

Talc - Are you Yoda?

dothraki Wed 10-Apr-13 07:32:39

Yes, I am Yoda actually. Small, greenish and wrinkly.

<hides head and runs away in embarrassment that pathetic attempt at champagne glass has been seen by The Master Yoda Talc, and is never seen again>

I can't draw things in real life, never mind like this.
