Here's another commission I did back in March, for a young lady named Kristin who really digs Doctor Who-- I portrayed her in a rose-colored version of one of the gowns that Sophia Myles wore as Madame Pompadour in the classic New Who episode, "The Girl in the Fireplace."

She's also holding a couple of marimba mallets, since that's her instrument, as well as a book, since she likes to write. And those are her two cats, M and Q. It was a birthday present-- and I'm happy to report she really likes how the portrait turned out. Huzzah!

I presume you use coloured pencils on your art. What type/brand do you use if you don't mind me asking? I've always admired your drawings and the beautiful colours :)

Oh, oops.. Sweating a little...  Well could you tell me the acrylic brand? I love the pop of color!

Sorry for the late response... but it's Old Holland. Best. Acrylic. Brand. EVER. (Golden, Sennelier, and W&N are also great.) But I have a special love for OH. You can buy it online at Blick, if there's no stores carrying the paint in your area.

Thanks! I'm really pleased with how it came out. I too wish I could own such a dress, but who would lace me into it? :O
