Ha ha! I got first comment! IT LOOKS FANTASTIC! Oh, the look on her face is just what I imagined! The cape flows like I imagined as well. Kisses are so awkward to draw, but I think you've done a marvelous job with this. I'm flattered beyond words that you took the time to do this...flummoxed really...but honored and humbled by your skill with a pen and pencil. This is really amazing. Better than the first and second drafts! Thank you again for all your kind words and for this WONDERFUL piece! **kisses and hugs** Rachael Evans
replies: "YAY!!!!!! I'd be willing to bet that there is an artist talented enough to color this in photo shop, I'll have to ask around. I think color would really make it jump off the page! I'm sooooooo glad you like it ^^ Honestly, it turned out better than I expected *giggles* If I can't find someone to color this one, maybe I'll do some individual character portraits with some paint, that would surely be lovely! You're words are inspiring and I'm amazed that no one else has dared to put a face to your babies ^^ *huggles* I'll let you know when I get the bug again ^^"

Wow! Great picture! I love how you drew Alainn! Her hair, her position! Her boots! Yes, I'm odd, I love her little boots on the shore... Kisses are hard, so are guys; lol I'm glad you drew the kiss scene and not me! LOL Mentos, girly! Great job! Rachael Evans
replies: "*grins* Thanks Brandy ^^ I liked the boots there on the shore too *giggles* I kick myself every time I look at Kiernan's hair, because it looks so unnatural *blah* Perhaps I'll fix when I add more background and repost it later. Thanks for commenting, I'm glad you know who they are ^^ I love that story!!!"

Yes, I agree with above commenter, the drawing has a gentle and beautiful flow, making the couple the centre of attention. The kissing is very well drawn. To illustrate something to a story must be quite demanding on your imagination, portraying what's already there but not on the paper yet. Great work, Rachael. Rachael Evans
replies: "*huggles* Thanks Louise! Your kind words mean a lot to me ^^ I don't remember how many drafts I did of that kiss, it was so hard to get it to look natural. I don't know if you've read Jamie's story, but her words REALLY paint a picture in your mind. I could see what I wanted, but it was difficult for me to get it down on paper as I imagined it. I'd still like to add more to the background, but I'll need some sort of reference for that. Okay, sorry for rambling, thanks for stopping by!!"

The whole picture has a beautiful flow to it, like everything is in harmony. Great work on the folds of their clothes. Rachael Evans
replies: "Awww, thank you Matt ^^ I gave an extra effort on this pic, Jamie's words really touched me so I wanted to do this for her ^^ I'm pleased that you like it, that always warms my heart! God bless."

Awww...I love it!! Gah...I need to practice drawing people...how many times do you think I've said that now? Rachael Evans
replies: "Thanks ^^ Eh, we all need to practice something or another, don't fret too much about it!"

replies: "*laughs* Thanks a bunch! Have you read Jamie's story? It's a great read, if you have time you should try to get over to her library, there's a link right above this picture if you're interested."

this is a lovely, beautifully drawn picture
the girl is the best and water is LOOKS like water how u do that lol Rachael Evans
replies: "*huggles* Thank you ^^ I had a super fun time doing this, though I look at it now and see all the things I could've done better ~.^
As for the water, that was luck! Although, looking at it now, I realize that the lines should have been going vertical, not horizontal *smacks head*"
