Seasonal Self-Portrait Collaboration

I totally wanted to follow the directions in the front of Mary's book, but I already had the birds going on, so I fit my seasonal-themed piece and my self-portrait into the collab with Mike.

Collab

Another artist could have done something more bad-ass with that dragon, but that's me: no forethought, ONLY AFTERTHOUGHT. That's soy ice cream, by the way, and the turkey's invited to share our vegan thanksgiving. "GOBBLE GOBBLE?"

I love this, so cute!

I'm glad you did this, and I also want to add that no one should feel obligated to follow my suggestions--they are just suggestions!

But I love the results! :-D

Oh, I figured it wouldn't be a problem, but I also like instructions and limitations and rules and things. I like seeing what I can do within the limitations to make something unexpected, or try to break the rules entirely. But just ignore them? Never!

I actually like rules and suggestions too--as long as I know they are flexible! :-D

THANKS!!! :-D

I am never good at instructions - might just be a male thang! This is very cute...

I'm glad you gave that dragon some soy ice cream!

I laughed out loud that you considering a more bad-ass image after the fact. I'm not very inclined toward bad-ass myself, so that's funny.

You've got a friend in cute, here :-) Nice sketch. Love the happy turkey!

I am just glad the "bad-ass" decided to share ice cream and turkey with my sweet dragon! Otherwise, things might of gotten ugly. Say "What?"
