Bart reads a succesful bedtime story. For him an unexpected and uncomfortable hug is the reward! Real cute brother sister moment, something the show has lacked for a long time... I digress... My first scene in a while so hope it was worth the wait.

Madam, your children are no more than a pair of trouble makers. Bart and Lisa have bothered Sideshow Bob, and now he has caught them booth. What will happen? Experimented a bit with face expressions and lines.

Another early commission pic from *bbmbbf and the Palcomix team.
In this one, I just love the coy, flirtatious expression Lisa is giving to the viewer, while hooking her bare foot around her brother's ankle. He's not going to be going anywhere while this picture was taken.
If you look carefully, you'll notice quite a few of my commissions show characters either barefoot or wearing sandals, even if sandals are not the character's normal footwear.
I think this was *bbmbbf's first Simpsons commission, and he did warn me that he didn't think he would be very good at imitating Matt Groening's rather unique art style. But I actually think it turned out really well! ^_^
Commissioned by me from ~arabatos a few months ago, this was partly the result of me re-reading ~simpspin's "Simpson: Generations" comic. I luuuurve the lovey-dovey expressions they all have, especially the girls. In that comic, a 13-year old Maggie and her younger brother, Eric (10 iirc), accidentally fall back through time to the present day.
This picture has nothing to do with that directly, but I did borrow ~simpspin's previous design for teen-Maggie (should've asked him in advance, but thanks to Simpspin for not getting angry that I didn't), and the idea of all the Simpsons meeting up in time and messing up their family's past.
Yes, somehow, all this alteration to the past has not caused any problems with the existences of Bart, Lisa, OR Maggie up in the tree. However Bart and young Marge Bouvier have fallen for each other, as have young Homer Simpson and Lisa Simpson. The young versions of the parents don't know that they're in love with their future kids, and quite frankly no-one else in the scene wants to tell them for their own reasons.
I was going to write this into a fanfic (I like time travel), but...well, it could still happen someday.
"Do your best", a common saying in Scouting, and half of the famous "Dyb dyb dyb; dob dob dob" phrase (DOB stands for "Do our best", if you wondered).
As a (former) Scout, I'm being prepared and doing my bit to help advertise the World Scouting Organisation to the youth of today. And mispelling "Organisation" as "Orangisation" will not help me - that would only get me people from those old Tango commericals. So I commissioned this piece from ~arabatos to try to make Scouting look cooler than it probably really is.
Anyone who lives in the USA and complains that Lisa and Allison's uniforms look totally wrong, starting with the colours and going on to name every other mistake - I don't care. I'm not from America, I'm English, so I used the UK uniforms. Also, Allison is only 7 (though Simpsons fans will remember she skipped a year to be in the same class as Lisa).
The grey uniform is for the youngest section of Scouting, called (in the UK at least) Beaver Scouts (ages 6-8), although really it should be a sweater, not a shirt. The green uniform that Lisa is wearing is technically for the Scouts section (10½-14), but it should actually be a green sweater, which is for the section known as Cub Scouts (or Wolf Cubs I believe, in the States, which is for 8-10½
Anyhow, they want YOU to join the brotherhood (and sisterhood, since 1990 ) of Scouting!
Jokey advertisement over.
Lisa and Allison both look really cute in this picture, their uniforms really fit them well imho. Very pretty. I wish there had been more pretty girls in the Scouts when I was a boy....oh wait, there were, but they thought I was a geek.
That said, at least I was friends with the girls in my Scout troop; the boys all hated me, and often treated me as a traitor for siding with the girls. Yes, we were all becoming attracted to girls (many nights on camp, in our tents, would be spent rating the girls out of 10), but they still felt that Scouts should be a club for boys only, and the girls should go back to Girl Guides; I felt that having the girls in the troop made things more balanced, which was partially because I hated playing football. The others said I only stood up for them because I majorly fancied the Group Leader's granddaughter, but that is a blatant lie - there were other reasons too....
Wow, this rambled on, didn't it? Comment please, and tell me to shut up more with my next submission!
