"Yearning" For a New Drawing!?!?

Yay! Time for a new drawing! I've had this drawing completed since October and now have to "go-ahead" from the amazingly, talented author, Ashlynne Laynne, to share it!

This new drawing is the first look at the other super couple from the exciting series, "The Progeny Series", Katy McCutchin and Gabe Rousseau! The picture is from the upcoming novella titled, "Yearning". If you haven't already begun to experience the super intense series, I highly recommend checking it out! I do warn that it is in the erotica zone, so be prepared! Check out the links below the picture and video to see where you can purchase the books in the series and where you can find Ms. Ashlynne Laynne on the web!

Mickie James Redraw! ;)

For a while now, I have been working on projects that are outside of my digital art. I have sorely missed being able to post my art here and had finished another digital art project for the amazing talented author of "The Progeny Series". I can't post the drawing yet but thankfully I was able to quickly whip up another one! There is a meme that had been going around DeviantArt called the "Draw This Again Meme" and I have been wanting to use it for a long time but never got a chance. I finally had some free time to redraw one of my all-time favorite wrestlers, Mickie James. She is the first women to have held the WWE Women's Title, WWE Diva's Title and the TNA Women's Title.

Disney's "CINDERELLA" Speedpainting!!!!

Finally got around to continuing my Disney Princess Series. This time around, I have for you....CINDERELLA! Not particularly at the top of my fave lists but I still like her. I do have to say that this drawing, so far is my absolute favorite that I have done. My drawings never really turn out the way I imagine them or how I plan them but for this drawing, I only really had an idea. So, I slightly referenced Jennifer Lawrence and many different dresses and drew the shoes from imagination and I am in love with how it turned out! ya go! Tell me whatcha think!!!


Wanna see how I did it? Check out the speedpainting video below!!!

"My Favorite Artists" Blog Series #14: esau13

Number 14 in my "Favorite Artists" Series!!!  My favorite number!!!  With that said, I have a super talented artist to feature today: Esau Murga aka DeviantArt user: esau13!!!  I first started following Esau because of his amazing "Mortal Kombat" fanart. It's some of the best that I have ever seen!  Let's dive right into some of my favorite works!

The first piece that drew me to Esau's work was this gorgeous fanart of "Mortal Kombat's" Edenian Princess, Kitana! My favorite part is the face mask with it's beautiful golden embellishment.  Her blue eye makeup is perfectly placed and the shiny metal of her deadly fans is awesome! Not only is this one of my favorite pieces of art by Esau but also one of my favorites of any "Mortal Kombat" fanart!!! It's gorgeous!

"MK Legacy Thunder God"

Next up is another "Mortal Kombat" fanart of the Thundergod himself, Raiden!!!  Raiden is one of my favorite characters and I think this drawing sums him up perfectly. The picture as a whole has a dark feel to it which makes the lightning surrounding him POP! I especially love the red glow in his eyes. His outfit is drawn exactly as it should look and I love it!

I LOOOOOOOVE HARRY POTTER!!!!  So this drawing of Harry Potter villain, Lord Voldemort is amazing!!!  Esau was able to make the Dark Lord look even more sinister than in the movies! He went more with the look described in the books, giving Voldemort bright red eyes. creepy! I love it!  Also, the dark swirls add a nice cloudy touch while also showing Voldemort's followers coming to meet him. Very cool!

It's usually hard to be interested in most people's "original characters" but Esau has one, "Demon of the Lake". The character is a beautiful woman and in his newest drawing of her, you can definitely see it! I love her makeup...the dark red and black. I love it.

So without further delay, here is the new Mr. and Mrs. Ascher Rousseau!!! ;)

"My Favorite Artists" Blog Series #13: Isaiah Stephens

Yay! Two days of consecutive blogging! haha  Today's featured artist is DeviantArt user, Isaiah Stephens! I am so in love with his work, it is ridiculous!! Isaiah is a traditional artist living in the United States. His gallery is a favorite of mine because not only is his work beautiful but there is a huge variety of fandoms. I am a huge fanart fan and his gallery includes but not limited to, "The Hunger Games", "Rugrats", a few DC "Gotham Girls", "Disney" and "Scooby Doo".

The first drawing of Isaiah's that I came across was this realistic version of the kids from the 90's tv show, "Rugrats". I used to be a huge fan of that show when I was younger and there isn't a lot of fan art floating around of it. So, clearly I was thrilled when I saw this! I mean, the details put into it are fantastic! From Chucky's curly red hair to Angelica holding her doll Cynthia...even Tommy is holding the little screwdriver that he uses to escape the playpen! much cuteness and so much nostalgia rolled into one!!!

"Harley Quinn and Poison Ivy"
photo credit: IsaiahStephens
Next drawing I want to highlight is Isaiah's amazing picture of DC's own Gotham Sirens, "Harley Quinn and Poison Ivy". Harley Quinn is my all-time favorite animated character and Poison Ivy is a close second. As most fans do, Isaiah drew the two in a close, sort of, embrace.  The colors are beautiful and their features are soft and gorgeous! This is drawn so beautifully!

"Avatar Korra"
photo credit: IsaiahStephens
I'm a fan of the series "Legend of Korra" and "Avatar: The Last Airbender" and Isaiah did a collection of drawings of some of the characters. My favorite is this drawing of the Avatar herself, Korra! The position is interesting and the colors are perfect. The flow of her hair is quite beautiful and it really frames her face nicely. So much of this drawing screams "perfection"! So beautiful!

"My Favorite Artists" Series Blog #12: thegeekcanpaint

Welcome back to another feature in my "Favorite Artists" Series. Today's featured artist is Keith James, aka DeviantArt user, "thegeekcanpaint". Let me tell you...."the geek CAN paint"!!!! haha Seriously, his work is amazing!  Mr. James is a traditional artist/illustrator residing in Saint Paul, Minnesota. What drew me to Keith's work was his extraordinary Harry Potter fan art! Anyone who knows me, knows my obsession with Harry Potter!!!  Let's now take a look at that fantastic artwork!!!

I can't recall which drawing of Keith's first caught my attention but I can tell which one's my favorite! It's this extremely detailed drawing of Professor Dumbledore's office from "Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets". The amount of detail put into this drawing had me staring at it for hours just looking at all this picture had to offer. In the drawing, you can see the sorting hat on a shelf behind the Headmaster's desk, Fawkes' stand above his recently ignited ashes, a tiny copy of "Tales of Beedle the Bard" (drawn to look like the special edition) and even a small bowl of Dumbledore's favorite candy, (lemon drops) on his desk. What's really amazing about this drawing, is that Keith also added a few "special" items. Items like, the Green Lantern and ring (located on the far left of the drawing), a lightsaber, the lamp from Aladdin, a golden ticket form "Charlie and the Chocolate Factory" and a bunch more!!!  I mean, this is probably one of the best fanart drawings I have ever seen in my LIFE!!! It's spectacular!!!
"Dumbledore's Office"

Poor Ron!
photo credit: Keith James
Another favorite drawing of mine, created by the super talented, Keith James is the picture of Ron burping up slugs from Chapter 7 in "Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets". The angle is quite interesting and the characters are perfectly represented. Hermione, with her big teeth and hair. Harry and his dark messy hair and large round glasses and poor Ron lookin' super ill from the slugs. LOL Strangely enough, that isn't even MY favorite part of the drawing. My favorite part is all of the Hogwarts House banners in the background. I don't know what it is but I love anything to do with showcasing the Houses of Hogwarts!!! *Fun Fact: As determined by Pottermore, I am a proud member of Ravenclaw House ;)*

Long time, No Bloggy..."My Favorite Artists" Blog Series #11: kazeki

Now, I have really procrastinated! I told myself that I would post every day on this blog and I haven't in over a month! Eeek! Sorry!!! Ok, so I will get back into my groove with another "My Favorite Artist" feature. This entry highlights an extremely talented Digital Artist from Malaysia named Charmaine, aka DeviantArt username, "kazeki". I've been a fan of hers for a few years now and recently discovered that she had a Tumblr account and kicked myself for not already following her!!!

Anyway..."kazeki" has a DeviantArt gallery FULL of amazing art and I tried my hardest to only pick a few as my favorites. The first one I will talk about is this BEAUTIFUL fan art of Princess Jasmine, from Aladdin in her "slave outfit". The overall color palette of this piece is a gorgeous, warm red. Her skin is painted in a realistic way but her body is drawn in the exaggerated proportions that we have all come to know as Disney's Jasmine. Kazeki made this picture unique by having Jasmine hold what looks like an albino python, similar to Britney Spears during her performance at the 2001 VMA's, or Salma Hayek in "From Dusk Till Dawn".
"Red Jasmine"

Another one of my favorites is of two more Disney Princesses.  This time, Ariel and Rapunzel.  This drawing has a soft look to it with Ariel's bright red hair standing out.  It's very simple but so beautifully done.

JURASSIC PARK 4! Who I want to return!!!

So, recently it has been announced that there will be a new "Jurassic Park 4". I am kind of excited. I say "kind of" because I LOVE the first one but not so much for the third and fourth ones. I have seen the first one about a billion and ten times and I always wonder what it'd be like to have a new Jurassic Park movie featuring the 2 kids, Lex and Tim from the first film.

This is how the idea of this drawing came about. I wanted to make a sort of, movie cover of the two of them as grown adults. On a scale of 1-10...I'd rate this a 5. While the drawing, to me, looks good overall, there are a few things I just couldn't fix. One being the angle of "Lex's" head isn't turned correctly. It doesn't look proportioned right to her body. Another thing I don't like is, for the life of me, I COULD NOT get Ariana Richards' likeness in this drawing!!! I tried so hard to make them look just like the actors but I just couldn't get her to work, so I was finally done fiddling with it and decided to move on.

Other than that, I think it looks pretty cool. Not my best but hey, I am still learning! ;) is my finished drawing. I hope you enjoy!!! :)

Also, check out the speedpainting video!!!

"My Favorite Artists" Blog Series #10: CrimsonArtz

We're up in the double digits now! I still have a few more fave artists, so if you are interested in my "Fave Artists" sure to keep comin' back! Today's artist is a traditional artist from the U.K., Matthew Skipworth aka CrimsonArtz. Matthew has a huge gallery of deviations on his DeviantArt page ranging from characters from DC Comics to Resident Evil. He has a beautiful, unique style that I was immediately attracted to. His subjects consist mainly of the female form, depicting all kinds of recognizable characters.

I can't recall the first deviation I ever saw of Matthew's but I do know that I am a fan of a LOT of his drawings!!! He has over 400 to browse, so narrowing it down to a few to feature was a tough feat. ;) Thankfully when Matthew does a bunch of characters from the same series, he will post them all together in one big drawing, so I can show more than I thought. :) Here is an example: the women from one of my favorite video game series, EVER...Mortal Kombat!!!
"Queens of Kombat"

Each female "Kombatant" is represented perfectly and are all easily noticeable.  Each of these ladies are drawn so perfectly and beautifully as their character that you have to go to CrimsonArtz page to see each one separately. The next drawing that I want to mention is an absolutely gorgeous drawing of "X-Men's" own, Storm. The pose is fantastic and strong and the way Matthew drew her hair is incredible! Her costume is captured unbelievably well, showing the shine of the gold jump off the picture.  

"Michonne and her walkers"
Here comes one of my absolute FAVORITES! The katana-wielding badass from "The Walking Dead", "Michonne".  Matthew drew her with her katana in one hand and the chains holding her walkers in the other. I'm so glad that he added the walkers. I think when most people think of Michonne, they think of her followed by the two walkers she kept by her side. Expertly drawn with a simple background that reminds me of the tv show, it perfectly completes the picture.

"My Favorite Artists" Blog Series #9: viria13

I didn't realize it had been 5 days since I last posted here! SORRY! I really need to keep up better! Anyway...I am back with a look at one of my ALL-TIME favorite artists, Ukrainian digital artist, Miss Viktoria Ridzel. aka Viria...or her DeviantArt username, viria13.

Patil Twins
I first spotted Viria's work while searching for Harry Potter fanart. At the time, she was putting out a LOT of Harry Potter related work. One of the first ones that I saw was this drawing of the Patil twins. There isn't an appreciable amount of art devoted to the Patil twins so this one stood out with its beautiful color palette and cute poses.

One of my favorite drawings done by Viria is this drawing of James and Lily Potter. The colors are very strong and the facial expressions are powerfully loving...something I hope to see when I come across a fanart of the Potters. :) There is also that little touch of the snow that somehow adds so much feeling to it. Beautiful.
Do Your Best

Favorite Artists #8: kapaeme

Today's fave is a digital artist from Portugal named, Diogo Pacheco (DeviantArt username: kapaeme). Diogo usually does chibi fan art of wrestlers and even does a few animations of short segments which always turn out extremely fun and entertaining!

I can't be sure of the first drawing of Diogo's that I saw so I'll just get into some of my favorites.  One of my all-time favorite female wrestlers is Melina. Diogo drew this of the "Paparazzi Princess" back in 2009. I love the simplicity of this drawing and that you can easily tell who it is.

CM Punk
art by: Diogo Pacheco
Now anyone who knows me, knows that I love, Love, LOVE me some CM Punk! So, naturally I loved this chibi drawing of Punk. It's in wallpaper proportions and I love the fact that Diogo wrote "pipe bomb" on the microphone! haha Also, the cute little touch of tiny Paul Heyman with the WWE Championship in the back is awesome!

Another favorite of mine is a more recent drawing of my new favorite stable in the WWE, The Shield!!! Each wrestler is perfectly represented in the drawing and with a cute little "nope" over Dean! haha I freakin' LOVE it! Also, the fact that I have a slight obsession with Dean Ambrose! ;)

My Favorite Artists #7: Brianna Garcia

Whoops....I didn't realize it had been a few days since my last update. Sawry!!! :) It's all good though, I am here now to remedy the situation! Number 7 in my favorite artists blog is Brianna Garcia! Now, I'm not positive but I believe that she has once worked for Disney as a sketch artist at parties and things like that. I could be 100% wrong here and Miss Garcia, if you read this, I apologize. haha

I absolutely LOVE Brianna's work! The first piece of work of hers that I saw has probably been seen by everyone and their mothers! haha It's her drawing of all the Disney Princesses making weird faces. I love it for many reasons. One, it is the Disney Princesses and two, it isn't the typical Disney Princess drawing. They are all acting goofy and in fun little poses. Very unique and that is what got my attention. :)
art by: Brianna Garcia

I found Brianna on DeviantArt but now she mainly posts new art on her Tumblr. Through her Tumblr, I have now come to love an attraction at Disneyland called "Mad T Party". I have never been to Disneyland and have never seen "Mad T Party" in person but seeing Brianna's videos that she posts and other's gifs, I have now become obsessed with March Hare and Dormouse, specifically these two guys (see right). Brianna has made some adorable Mad T Party art that can be bought from her many online stores: Society6 and Redbubble

My Favorite Artists #6: joshwmc

I hope you aren't tired yet of reading about my favorite artists because I have quite a few more to come! :) Today's artist is joshwmc from DeviantArt. Josh hasn't posted any new art on his DeviantArt page since the summer of 2011 but he does post on his blog:

art by: joshwmc
I can't remember exactly which pieces of art by Josh that I saw first but I do know that it was one of two pieces. One of which being a fanart portrait of Mortal Kombat princess, Kitana. I absolutely love this drawing! It's so beautifully drawn. Josh drew her with a strong stance, great muscle tone was brought out and there is real emotion of a warrior in this drawing. It's really nice when an artist is able to do that with a piece of art.

art by: joshwmc
The second piece that could have been the first I saw is a fanart drawing of former TNA Knockout, Daffney. There really isn't that much great fanart of women professional wrestlers out there so seeing this piece was a real treat. Daffney has always been a favorite of mine, so this one was immediately added to my faves! I am astounded at Josh's ability to perfectly draw Daffney's tattoos and the type of fabric on her outfit and the strain of the ties in the middle. There is perfect flow.

Now comes my favorite part. Josh did a series of drawings that he called "Disney Fighters" where he drew the Disney princesses as fighters with new stories. Check out this one of Snow White. He turned her story to be Snow as a tough-girl, street fighter growing up in a city run by seven drug lords. I love this because not only does Josh create an interesting piece of art but he also creates interesting stories to go with them.

My Favorite Artists Blog #5: Shannon Denise

Today's featured artist is Shannon Denise, another amazing artist from DeviantArt. I love when I can find an artist that does great work and who is also a sweet person who interacts with their "watchers". I'm not saying most artists on DeviantArt aren't nice. I'm just saying that Shannon finds the time to thank you for comments and faves.

The first drawing created by Shannon, that I saw, was this drawing of my all-time favorite cartoon character, Harley Quinn. The pose is extremely cute, with Harley holding the ends of her hat and I just LOVE the little Joker in the back. It's those little touches that Shannon adds to her drawings that just make them special!

Another favorite drawing of hers that I like is this one of Poison Ivy. An attractive pose with her beautiful hair...ahhhh! So pretty! :) One of the things that I love about Shannon's art is that her women have curves. They aren't drawn with stick figure waists. They look like real women should look! I love it!

My Favorite Artists Blog #4

Today's blog is on artist, Daniel Kordek from Poland who uses the username, daekazu on Deviantart. He has a HUGE list of deviations (over 500) ranging from "Harry Potter", "Disney Princesses" to "The Hunger Games" and soooo many more. I'm going to be completely honest here...when I first started "watching" daekazu on DeviantArt, I thought he was a girl. Apparently so have a lot of others since he posted a DeviantID with arrows pointing at himself, saying "me". haha I don't really know why I assumed he was a girl. Going by his style and choice of subject, maybe? I don't really care because he is an EXTREMELY talented artist!

I can't be sure of the first piece of art of Daniel's that I saw but it may have been this drawing of some of the Disney Princesses. I am a HUGE Disney Princess fan, so I would have come across this one at some point because it is so bright and colorful.

Disney Princesses by daekazu

In his earlier work, such as this one, all of his subjects kind of have the same face. In his later work, he keeps his style but changes it a little to reflect an almost "realistic" style. Take a look at this little "series" Daniel has where near Valentine's Day, he posts these separate pages of a bunch of couples in different fandoms and series. There is literally EVERY couple imaginable, from Jasmine and Aladdin to Rose and Jack from Titanic. Looking at the top left image, you can see he started with more of a cartoonish style to now, (bottom right) he has more realism while keeping his personal style. There is more shading and depth to his drawings. Very beautiful.

Snow Whites

One of my favorite drawings is Daniel's "Snow White" drawings. He drew it around the time when both, "Snow White and the Huntsman" and "Mirror Mirror" were coming out and on one side, he drew Charlize Theron and Kristen Stewart's versions of the "Queen" and "Snow White" and on the other side, he drew Julia Roberts and Lily Collins' version while both are in the costumes from the Disney version. Three different versions of Snow White, in one drawing! It's such a great idea for a drawing. What I really like about it, is each costume is the same concept but looking closely, you can see slight differences such as the hair, the collars and each Queen's jewel.

Another fantastic idea drawing done by daekazu, is this "Batman and Catwoman" piece. The drawing is split down the middle with the left side being the Michelle Pfeiffer/Michael Keaton version and on the right is the Anne Hathaway/Christian Bale version. Another very interesting concept. This drawing shows perfectly the style of Daniel Kordek that I love. It has a painterly look to it and drawn in his personal style while still being able to clearly see Michelle Pfeiffer and Anne Hathaway.

Favorite Artists Blog #3

Here we are again! Another artist who inspires me. Today's blog is about another DeviantArt artist from the U.K., named Emma (username: Catching-Smoke). Emma is a traditional artist using pencils for sketching and I believe she colors some of her sketches digitally.

Emma's "Tonks" drawing
I was first attracted to Emma's work when I was searching for "Nymphadora Tonks" fanart on DeviantArt and came across this drawing. She drew Tonks sitting down, smoking a cigarette. Not only did I think it was a cool drawing of Nymphadora but also, I LOVED the way Emma drew the folds in her clothing. I know that sounds really weird but I'm totally serious! I have soooo much trouble when it comes to drawing natural looking folds but here I sat, looking at this amazing piece of art that looked like it was drawn effortlessly. I was completely envious of her work and hit that "watch" button immediately!

Most of Emma's work is fanart of "Harry Potter" and some of "The Hunger Games",  which is awesome since I love both series! ;) Her drawings are mainly sketches but they look so flawless.  Take, for instance, this drawing of Ron and Hermione from "Harry Potter". If you look closely, you can see a few sketch lines around the edges but each line is blocked in with purpose. She always draws hair with perfection. I just want to latch on to her talent and never let go!!! (Just like Hermione is latching on to Ron, hehe)

"Ron" and "Hermione" from "Harry Potter" drawn by Emma

There are a few "character sheets" that Emma drew of characters from the Harry Potter series and also Johanna Mason from "The Hunger Games". My favorites are the "Golden Trio" from Harry Potter. Each character sheet is drawn with different expressions and movement that you can actually tell the character's personality based on her drawings.

"My Favorite Artists" Blog Series #2

Are you returning from yesterday? If you are, THANK YOU! Are you a new reader of my blog? THANK YOU TOO! Any reason you are reading my blog, THANK YOU! This is #2 in my blog series about my Favorite Artists. Now, keep in mind that these are not in any particular order. Each artist is equally as talented no matter their "skill level" or medium of choice.

Today's featured artist is another that I found on DeviantArt named Rebecca Blair (DeviantArt username, r-becca.) She is an amazingly talented traditional medium artist, using marker, pen, pencil, and pastels. She now mainly posts her art on her Facebook fanpage.

Rebecca's "Alice Cullen" 
The first piece of Rebecca's that I saw was her fanart drawing of Ashley Greene as Alice Cullen. I have seen a LOT of Twilight related fanart but this one stood out because of how much it looks like a photo. Rebecca's ability to make the eyes stand out and the hair look so realistic is mind-blowing! This is the drawing that made me hit the "watch" button on her DeviantArt page. Another fanart drawing of hers that I fell in love with is her "Ravenna" drawing. It is almost realistic but kind of has her cartoonish touch to it. It's so beautiful!

Rebecca does some realistic drawings and some cartoonish drawings. A few that I love are her fanart drawings of characters like Aurora and Maleficent from Sleeping Beauty, Poison Ivy and Rapunzel. I especially love the one of Aurora because she added tattoos to her arms. :)

Tattooed Aurora, Maleficent, Poison Ivy and Rapunzel
From time to time Rebecca will do a black and white drawing and then add color to it later. I'm not sure if she does it digitally or not but either way, they always turn out to be stunning.

My Favorite Artists List #1

Hello all. I have decided that I really want to keep up with my blog. Well, both of them actually. If you didn't know, I also write a wrestling blog called Girls Like Wrestling Too. So, if you are a fan of wrestling, go on and take a looksie at my blog. :)

Now, I love lists.  I love to make lists, read lists, think about lists...I think I may be slightly OCD. haha Anyway...I figured that since mostly all I have posted on this blog is my art, that I should make my first list as my favorite artists. Each day, I will write about one artist and what I like about them, what got my attention and my favorite works by them.

This first entry will be about one of my ultimate favorite artists that I follow on DeviantArt. Her name is Sanne Krueger and her DeviantArt username is starsandpolkadots. I usually look at mostly fanart and that is actually how I came across her page. The first pieces of hers that I saw were a wedding "photo" of Ron and Hermione from the Harry Potter series. Then after seeing her drawing of Harry Potter characters, Teddy and Victoire I started "watching" her work.

I hardly ever care to "watch" an artist on DeviantArt if they only post their original characters. Sanne has recently been drawing just her characters and no fanart and I love it! Her little series of her characters is called, "This City Sucks" and they actually have their own Tumblr! I have fallen so in love with these characters, it is crazy! There are so many pieces that Sanne has done that I just look at over and over again! One being of her character, Holly. Holly sports blond hair with pink tips, a lip ring and a septum piercing. She is probably my favorite "TCS" character. Her style is what brings my attention to her. Holly also is featured quite often with a walking stick and just like all of her characters, Sanne has a story behind it.

Charlie and Kieran
Each of her characters has a story behind them, relationships they are in or will be in. Sometimes Sanne draws her characters in relationships that haven't happened yet. Like the relationship between her characters, Charlie and Kieran. They are my favorite of the couples in the "TCS" universe. :) I know that her characters are fictional and are drawn in a somewhat cartoon style but I am sooooo in love with Kieran! Ahhh...he is so handsome! His sideburns...ahhhh, those sideburns! haha

Most recently, my favorite of Sanne's amazing characters is Orla. Orla is Kieran's little sister. She is the youngest of four children, one of which being her twin brother, Declan (who I find to be as attractive as Kieran!).

New Drawing and it's NOT FAN ART!?!?!

Yes, that is true. I did something that isn't fanart! Can you believe it! haha I was asked by a friend of my little sister to draw a tattoo design for her. She wanted a bunch of flowers with a blue-green hummingbird...oh and for it to be bright and colorful. I feel like most of what I do is super colorful, so that would be no problem. haha Anyway...I have sent it to her and she likes it a lot and gave me permission to post it on my sites, ya go! :)
