WOW! How adorable. It is amazingly well done, I love all the detail that has been put into it. I think it would look better if it was cleaned up a little more, just so it looks more crisp. The expression is priceless... great work! :la:

Yeah, I know the scan isn't the best. I think I was rushed when I did it to get to where I was going to sell it. I don't have the original anymore to take a better picture. ^^"

That's too bad you can't scan it again! It looks awesome anyways so I wouldn't worry too much. Man, I wish I could have bought it! It's so cute ;A; :heart:

Haha, technically I could since I know the person who has it now, but it would be kinda a hassle since they live about a half hour away and have it framed. x)
:O! So you would really buy something like this? I'll be doing a lot of art over the summer, so maybe I could sell some little things on dA in between if anyone would buy. ;)
