Dear Manu,

I would register first if you arrange a training session to teach us
the techniques of line drawing. But, I know it is a talent, gods
gift.

I don't know whether talent can do much, unless you use it well..
But for making line drawings you only need some patience.
There are so many tools available to make a neat line drawing. Now, it is easy to make a sketch using a Camera lucida attached stereo microscope. Even good quality photographs can be used to make the sketch of plant habit...

I am not a proffessional in making scientific illustrations.. But
Its a pleasure to share what I know...

thanks a lot for sharing buddy.
This whole process of plant identification needs a lot of patience.
I assume members like us can really give a good hardcore taxonomic
outlook to our contributions to the eflora during our posts. That will
atleast increase our own knowledge on the plants and of course those
who really follow our posts will gain too.
