Dandylion was a lover of Narcissus, but he became infatuated with himself and turned into a flower staring at his reflection (another story). Dandylion loved Narcissus so much that she sat and watched him through this process... she watched him so long, that she too became a flower. But her flower was not excessively beautiful. In fact, she was a bothersome weed! As the seasons changed, her hair began to fall out and where ever the strands landed, there more dandylions would grow until she was surrounded by bald replicas of herself. In spite of her misfortunes, Dandylion spends her days blowing the fuz off of her aging companions! Story: by me Pic: sharpie's

Thatís a nice little story. I like the picture that you created to go along with it. The proportions in your figure seem a bit off (small arms and hands). Then again, she obviously isnít human, so who really knows what the proper proportions are or not. Nice job on this, I know that sharpies markers are hard to work with (which is why I donít even try), you did really well.
