:hug: Thanks, everyone! Dex Devil is actually quite dear to me - he is inspired by Ronon Dex, a character from Stargate Atlantis, played by the actor Jason Momoa (whom I adore just a teensy bit more than I possibly should....). I met him about 18 months ago and showed him a portrait I drew of him (which I will be posting here at some point, I imagine!), which he signed (for free, he was so chuffed with it). He then insisted that I sent his mother a copy. I was a bit nervous about doing this, so my friend Rachael told her about my artwork via his official website (his mum runs it, bless him...) and so I eventually sent it to her... she then included it in a charity calendar, and asked if I had any more Jason artwork (which I do. Sad, aren't I??). She saw the sketch and loved it, and asked if I would colour it for her, so I did (it has also been included in the calendar - I got 5 pieces in in the end!). So, in a sort of surreal twist of fate, I did this for one of my favourite actor's mum (hence the reason why I took supa-care with regards to the colouring...) - not something everyone gets to do, but heigh ho! :D

The font I used was from this deviant: http://rl-brushes.deviantart.com/

Thank you very much! :hug: The first portrait is one of the few of my drawings I am actually pleased with on the whole (there are a few things I would change if I could...) - it was a lot of fun to play with all those lovely colours!

As for making her into a portrait - give me a bit and I'll see if I can sort that out (I'm not too good at resizing portraits - it really does take me some time to get it right! |There must be ab easier way to get it done as opposed to my 'trail and error - mainly error' approach).

I really, really like your style - I tend not to favour 'anime'-ish styles (because they tend to be a bit staid and cliche), but your style is vibrant and interesting - it's also so very nice to see this kind of work done with traditional media! You have a real talent for posing and creating mood - your picture of Sola and Narra is simply lovely ^_^!

I'm slowly working my way through this thread, and I've just taken a break-let to say you've got a real talent for dynamic posing - excellent stuff! :D
