Thumper: Looks like they'll be one happy somebody for Christmas! I think that you've done an excellent job from what I can see. The shot must be from a digital camera? :) Anyway, looks like you've been doing your homework, from what I can see, you've accomplished alot here, there's nothing I can say but "You've done good!", and "keep it up"... I was kind'a wondering though, what else is going to be in the picture with the two? Will it be two faces only, or will there more? Just nosey, that's all. Groovy! You've got that photographic style...

People must be sick of seeing me say WOW. but you need a WOW. :) Good to see you again Thumper :D

wow doesnt quite seem like enough...awesome work!

Now it's my turn. . .
wow, thanks guys, now only if I can get it finished ;)
As to the background. . . well, there's still the upper bodies of the two, the arms, necks etc, i havn't decided about the background completely, I know what's happening from the faces down, but not from the faces up, I might just shade it (in the picture there's a wall) I'll have to think about that.

Wow, really nice! And you drew them with their mouths open and it looks normal - now I'm jealous - I can't do that!
Lucky someone, to be getting this for xmas.

Very well done. This Christmas?:D The one on the right looks a lot like a 'Joc' to me..do I win anything?

Max, you're right, I hadn't noticed, but you are... Good job on this (again!):D
Thumper?... Are you studying to be an artist, if not, I would like to know why, without prying, of course... I don't think that you need 'too much' studying, if you are...:D

Smashing work Joc, excellent. :)

Joc, this is lovely! fantastic rendering! Love the happy faces. You'll get it finished, you just keep adding a bit when ever you get a moment and you'll be suprised how quickly it gets done.

Hi Joc, Nice happy smiles there. You have captured their expressions in a very natural way. Hope you will post the finished work :)

Thanks again everyone. . .
Yes the one on the left is a 'Joc' The girl on the right is my best friend who this is for. And yes, this Christmas. . . so i'll have to try my hardest to sincerely get it done- I just need an entire day to finish.
MeBucko- I suppose you could say right now that i'm studying to be an artist, that's my plan out of highschool, of course, right now I'm not able to focus solely on art, as much as I want to. . . but after next year- Art School here I come.
