No problem! Sideburns is a hit over on the RP. Had someone asking if he was a drawing I did and I'm like "pfft I wish!" and then sent them the link to the original on his blog. :XD:

Glad to hear some fellow Les Mis enthusiasts liked him! :D

Yup! I sit and squee every time his icon manages to show up on the dash {I'm a doofus; I know}. Still can't get over how great he turned out. I'm just like "yup! I have the cutest muse ever" and then he gives me a look like I'm ill in the head. Oh well. :XD: Might have to see if I can get a paypal gift card or visa gift card or something from the parents for Christmas or birthday so I can commission another picture because I keep getting idea bunnies in my head now. :B

lol Yes. Heavy on the bunnies. That's the problem. I value my life the way it is. I don't want strung up by my toes for some of these ideas. :B

It is amazing how realistic you make these! I am sure I have said that about a hundred times now. Lol! But, I am still amazed. Hehe! XD Incredible work!!

Thanks! It always makes me a little nervous when someone requests a family member or someone that they actually know in person. There's a bit of interpretive wiggle-room with OCs, but with stuff like this it either looks like your mom or it doesn't. End of story. :XD:

Yes, I agree! I might have the chance here to try to draw a real person... *chews nails* I'm looking forward to giving it a try, but not so sure I can do it! Like you said... it is either them or it isn't. No in between. I bet this turned out just right though. You are amazing and drawing real existing people!

I hope you do! I bet you'd be awesome at drawing a real person. Your portraits really capture the spirit and personality of the subject. The sweet shyness in the drawing you did of Sara for Mirz, for instance, is perfect. :)

:tighthug: Thank you so much! I try, but I don't always capture as well as I hope. I need to do one of those expression memes for practice. :D Hehe! Anyway, I definitely do want to try a real person. So, hopefully soon! XD

Aww, this looks great. Smarty really was thrilled with it (showed it off in chat). Very nice work.

Thanks! Drawing idealized OCs is always good fun, but it's refreshing painting a real person now and then too. And =I-is-smart's mom has such a sweet smile. :)
