Friends

Okay, so I've been working on something VERY different from my normal fare.
Not that I don't consider my character portraits to be art or artistic, this particular piece falls into a whole NEW category for me.

I was inspired by, of all things, a cake design I saw on the Food Network some time ago and it got my wheels turning.
After all, most of my work isn't all that "artsy"... I decided I was up for the challenge of doing something new and different.

I like the way it turned out, but I really want to know what others think of it.
Who knows, I might try to do more pieces like this in the future.

UPDATE: I've decided to give something a try. I do take commissions, but as those who do any kind of commission work know, they can fall through sometimes. This unfortunately happens to me a lot, for reasons I'm not entirely sure of. BUT, I was recently introduced to a website that allows those that wish to, to support my work through simple donations. I thought it wouldn't hurt to set up an account, after all no one is obligated to do anything. LOL For those that wish to, the URL is:

I've been a writer for the vast majority of my life. At age eleven I wrote a short story about a dragon, and my mom and my aunt were floored that I'd used the phrase "murderous hatred" to describe the look in the dragon's eyes. Getting that reaction fueled me to keep writing. As I got older however, I started to long for ways to give my characters a visual presence, even if only to help me better connect with them. As I cannot draw, this started with finding images from various places, but using another's work (like anime and such) was not satisfying, and didn't help fully. Then, I found 3D art. It took me years to grasp and be able to make anything that resembled a completed image and I'm still learning of course but I feel that finally I can put faces on some of my characters.
