This is cute! And I'm fine thank you, unfortunately I have not been as productive as I would have liked to be over the summer - especially when moving around and having to work so much - to be honest I can't wait to start my uni course again in two weeks and get some art going!! How are you?!

Sheila, this is a fantastic portrait. I really like seeing that little bit of bluegreen in the background and then seeing the touches of blue in Thizz's fur; very well done!!

Bandit wants to know when HIS portrait will be posted. He wants to be part of that rogues gallery that everyone is admiring!

Sheila, your abilities are amazing. Your use of bright colors, lively brushwork and, most of all, your intense ability to present the personality of a being through their eyes and body language is unusual as well as unique.

Bravo!
