i think this and your other drawings of Wanda and pet are fantastic! I am actually using them as character sketches if that is okay with you. I'm writing a book and your drawings are all exactly how i pictured some of the characters. I won't put them in the book or anything (i don't think. If i do i would check with you and make sure you got credit)but for now I'm just using them so i have a visual of my characters. Is that okay with you? if i do anything with them i would check with you first and make sure you get credit.

please let me know.

This is really how I imagined her. Is there anyone who you based her off? I'd really like to know. If I decide to continue the comic, I'd like to change her features to match this.

This is great, but I think that she looks too... lovely. I like this drawing, but it doesn't look like Melanie. Maybe Wanda or Sharon. :)

Scribble-fest? Really? PSHH.
You have more talent in your pinky than I do in my whole body.
I love the soft lines and delicate shading.

Wish I could have 5-minute scribble fests look like THAT. ;]

No, really, I like it, even the way she looks so wistful, it fits into the part where Melanie\Wanda remember Melanie being feeling so safe with Jared, like she's watching Jared and Jamie watch TV in the distance...at least, that's my interpretation, I suppose. :]

This is very good. It looks more like her than any of the actresses that have been thrown at me, haha. Now, if only you could bring her to life.... B-)

And chance of you doing Wanda, Ian or Jared?

i kind of bonded more with melanie's character, so i really am glad you put a pic up of her, i just connected with her better because if i had some squishy alien thing in my body i would be pissed as hell, and she's spicy and i can't stand dull characters...anywho awesome job.
