Nice it looks kinda real! Melissa L Withington Whitford
replies: "Thank you! I like it when my drawings look realistic. I don't usually have the patience to color and shade my drawings, but I like the effect when I do."

This picture is SO good, you have major talent! *grumbles* Oh well, I can't be the best with people like you around, ggrrrrrr..... ah, keep up the good work! Melissa L Withington Whitford
replies: "To tell you truthfully, I wish I could draw this well when using a real model like the one I did of my brother. This drawing was pretty much copied from a picture, which could be seen as a cop-out (I just altered the colors and some of the clothing). It's fun to do anyway, and I'm glad you like it. Only don't be jealous; just keep drawing! Besides,I've just looked at your gallery, and your people are pretty good!"

Wow.. she is pretty.. good job..Not much to say.. i dont see anything wrong.. maybe a background of some sort? Melissa L Withington Whitford
replies: "I'm not sure if I'll go back to this drawing, but when my brother used it as a CD cover, he gave it a plain gray background, and it looked pretty good."

That's so very good. Your talent is so very visible. I'm sure you'll go places. Great job.
I don't know about the gentile woman thing. There's really only one Gentile Woman you know, and that doesn't really look like her.
Maybe she could be a Mormon Wife. Melissa L Withington Whitford
replies: "Oh, no. Not the Gentile Woman and Mormon Wife thing again. For those of you who have no idea who those people are, neither of them is me; they are nicknames for two of my very goofy friends! "

Hmmm, she reminds me of Satine from Moulin Rouge. Keep up the good work! Melissa L Withington Whitford
replies: "Now that you mention it, she does seem like her."

I like the idea of a silver skin. Maybe you can give it a more silver glow (don't ask me how, I wouldn't know) I like the outfit and the hair as well.
Love Rian Melissa L Withington Whitford
replies: "That's an interesting idea. Though I'm through with this picture, I may try it on something else."

Great concept, and yes, the colors do go together very well. At first glance, before the eye has really digested the pic, it looks like a rough, poorly-textured sketch; but then I noticed how well done the figure is, how lifelike the expression on her face, how I could almost feel the waves of her hair. It is a surprisingly pleasing picture to look at. Melissa L Withington Whitford
replies: "I think I see what you mean; I used colored pencils to color my pictures because they’re easy to come by and easy to use, but I’m not always good at getting them to color evenly. It might help if I made my pictures larger - the picture on the screen is just as large as the picture that I drew, so there’s not much room for fine-tuning details (especially when I get lazy about sharpening my pencils ). Thanks for taking time to get past the rough stuff and seeing something good in this picture. "
