    Darth_Noctis: Thank you so much! :)


    OK, I've finished the Neytiri piece, but before that, I'd like to show you guys a sketch I did today. It's based on a fic I'm writing. I posted the first chapter here, but I've really only added chapters on FF.net. It's called "Brown Eyes", and it's a VERY AU Vader/Padme. If you'd like to read, here's the link: Brown Eyes

    I finally got to see Avatar last week. Your work on Neytiri, plus Anakin & Padmé is astonishing to say the least. :)

    Glad to see another Avatar fan!

    With that said, I'm really enjoying all of your Avatar pieces! The graphite ones are amazing, but that last one done in Painter - WOW! Nicely done! I would love to see more in the same style and medium! :)

    Wow wow wow wow wow! [face_hypnotized]

    Your work is awesome!!! I especially love the way you draw Anakin/Padme' and Han/Leia. The cartoonish ones are really cool, too. The one with Obi-Wan and Asajj just about killed me! [face_laugh] (I hope you were the one who did that one...I've been trying to catch up and post comments)

    Wow, some beautiful work there, I especially like the atmosphere in the Neytiri portrait, you captured her features beautifully :D
    The Padme/Vader piece is wonderful, really touching.

    Thank you guys so much! [face_love] I'm so thrilled you liked the last two piccys. To Cara_Undercover_Jedi: Yes, I did do the Asajj/Obi-Wan drawing (and fic). :) You guys are the best!!

    I don't know what happened here, but I've been trying to get a good skin tone and texture for a while, and all of a sudden I was experimenting with Photoshop and it came out pretty well for a first digital portrait, I thought. I was working from a photo reference.

    Here's Emmy Rossum:

    Wow, Serena, just looked through all your artwork and it's just fabulous! =D= [face_dancing] My very favorites would have to be the two drawings of Han and Leia. [face_love] You've got some amazing talent- keep up the great work!![:D]@};-

    Yes, I agree! Very well done!

    You seem to be coming along quite well with the digital media. Each new painting you do is a step up from the last! Keep up the wonderful work! :)

    Beautiful work! I love how you captured the tone and lighting.

    I also enjoy your artworks based on Avatar. Just gorgeous.

    Earlybird: Thank you!

    Mac: Thanks so much!

    Dancing_star: Thank you! :) I love Han and Leia - I had so much fun with those drawings.

    Steph: Thank you! I'm working in digital media pretty much all the time now... occasionally I'll do a few sketches in my notebook, but I'm really trying to use digital media more.

    Corellian_Outrider: Did I ever say how much I love your penname? :) And thank you so much!




    OK, here's a portrait of Natalie that I just finished. I saw the photo and was like - OK, I am SO painting that. :D

    She definitely looks striking! The monochrome and the contrast really heightens her features. There is something about her eyes that captures your attention.

    Thank you too :). I didn't know you love my penname. It has a dual meaning for me: It is like a scout or ranger and the other is of a ship.

    Hey, guys! Wow, it's been a while. I'm really busy with college, but for my graphic art class, I've been doing a few different things.

    I don't know if any of you have seen "How to Train Your Dragon", but I HIGHLY recommend it if you haven't. It's so adorable! So, I have a couple pieces done in PS from that, then a PS and Painter sketch of yours truly.

    Hope everyone's doing well! I need to catch up with everyone, here...

    Those are really great! I love the 'Dragon' pieces and the simplicity of the self-portrait really works well.

    Nicely done! :)

    Awwww! I love that movie. You making me want to see it again. Toothless looks wonderful. Love the pose, emotion and lighting coming through on the two of them.

    I also love your self portrait, I think it turned out beautifully.

    "Yours Truly" is so dream like, making me think about certain DESPERATE ROMANTICS (= a BBC six-part drama following the Pre-Raphaelite brotherhood).

    The most funny is "How to train your human", a question that every cat has at least one time per day.
