I really enjoyed doing this drawing... I am not certain what they are. I was just looking for the first one I did, and I found that I deleted it off the computer already. Oh well. I was going to make it a mushy kissing scene, but it turned out a 'There is something on your cheek' sweet kind of thing. :)
Scottish Humor: There was a Scottish tradesman, a painter called Jock, who was very interested in making a pound where he could, so he often would thin down the paint to make it go a wee bit further. As it happened, he got away with this for some time, but eventually the Presbyterian Church decided to do a big restoration job on one their biggest churches. Jock put in a bid, and because his price was so competitive, he got the job. And so he set to, with a right good will, erecting the trestles and setting up the planks, and buying the paint and, yes, we're sorry to say, thinning it down with the turpentine. Well, Jock was up on the scaffolding, painting away, the job nearly done, when suddenly there was a horrendous clap of thunder, and the sky opened and the rain poured down, washing the paint from all over the church and knocking Jock fair off the scaffold to land on the lawn, among the gravestones, surrounded by telltale puddles of the thinned and useless paint. Jock was no fool. He knew this was a judgment from the Almighty, so he got on his knees and cried: 'Oh, God! Forgive me! What should I do?' And from the thunder, a mighty voice spoke: 'Repaint! Repaint and Thin no more!'

What a sweet, charming picture! I like your spotty creature-people. Oh, and that joke is great...One of the best shaggy-dog stories I've heard in a long time.

1 Jenny M. Heidewald replies: "Jenny's Note:Glad you enjoyed the picture and the joke!"

Are they supposed to be frog people?

2 Jenny M. Heidewald replies: "Jenny's Note: I guess they could be, I just wanted to do something different. 2"

*squees* Sooooo cute! Made me grin when I saw it, and the title fits perfectly. The girl's hair is georgous, but I think my favorite part of this piece are the expressions. I love the band of freckles on the girl's face too. Not quite sure what I think of the sparkly things, but even they aren't bad! Keep up the good work! *scampers off to add inane awestruck ramblings to other pieces*

1 Jenny M. Heidewald replies: "Jenny's Note: Aww, thank you Kellie! I guess the sparkles are water drops glinting in the sun, and the spots/freckles were fun. 2"

What are they?!?!?!

Mer-cheetahs? Now, that's intriguing ... The matter-of-fact emotion is delightful here, and not very often seen in such fantasy portraits. Everything works here except, in part, those spots (especially his). Perhaps if they had a bit firmer definition around the edges, it'd be easier to see them as coloring of their skins, rather than from your pencil. A minor quibble, though.

2 Jenny M. Heidewald replies: "Jenny's Note: I thought I had replied to this one, but I guess I just read it a lot and replied to it only in my head! I don't think of them as mer-cheetahs, that would be an intersting concept, but I don't think cheetahs like water( now tigers, on the other hand..). I think that some of the original color of the skin was not picked up by the scanner *peers at picture* I keep forgetting how much I like this one. <2Thanks for another fine comment!"

Good pic! But, why do they have chicken pox? 10

12 Jenny M. Heidewald replies: "Jenny's Note: I was thinking more toad/frog like kind of skin rather than chicken pox.... 12"

I think she is saying "Don't worry the itching only last for a week or so, It's the extreme hormones you have to watch out for"

22 Jenny M. Heidewald replies: "Jenny's Note: Now there is a story! Itching from what? Extreme Hormones from what? Transformation?"

very nice, you do beautiful hair

:-) Jenny M. Heidewald replies: "*bows* Thank you, Monique! Hair is one of my favorite things to work on, though at times all the lines make my hand want to fall off after I am done! 2"
