Default Lady Shani and "Tinka"

This is Lady Shani, and her firelizard "Tinka", whom I was very happy to do a portrait for.









This is our staff member Shani, and I hope that you enjoy her portrait.


Sorry that this is a few days late.........Maelin

It should Becky! I worked on explaining to Shani that Maelin could give her any hair she wanted, since she was complaining she had no photos in which her hair looked good, and she finally got it and said "ooooh, could she give me hair like Sharra's!"

another lovely portrait. I can't wait to see what's next.

Thank you very much for the compliments, I did try for the Sharra's Hair look that she had wanted so badly. I am so happy that someone noticed it, Thank You Becky. I am so glad that you are all still enjoying these, I am having so much fun with them.

That was the first thing I thought, of Sharra's hair with the flowers..but really, how you do the hair on all of these keeps drawing my eye! It's so realistic!

Wish I could have these in a book form...the People of MoM, anyone? Really, you ought to do book covers or interior illustrations or *some* sort of genre art. These are amazing.

Anareth, you can download them if you want to, I do these just for the sheer joy of it, for all of the members of MoM.

I always wanted to see myself on Pern, and I know that there are a lot of others that have felt the same way. Thats why these are here, I seem to be able to make some of the member wishes come true.

I really like that idea.

Or - if there is ever a fundraiser needed for MoM, Anareth's idea would be a good one - with Lady M's permission, of course! But I'd love to do a screensaver or changing background with everyone's portraits! I just don't know how.

You can do a screensaver, if you save all the pics to one folder and then set your computer to do a My Pictures Slideshow as your screensaver, pointing it to that folder as where your pics are.

Pern-derived art can't be sold Shalyn! And with the firelizards most of us opted for, it's pretty clearly Pern art.

If you just print them out, and put the prints into a note book then you could have your very own People of MoM book.....easy as pie.

It's a great way to be able to add to it. That is what I did with the finished portraits, I have them all in plastic pages, inside a large black note book (my little black book of MoM).

I love to look in it and see all of the members that I have done so far. Try it you might like it

And they do print out very nicely on regular paper. I've only printed mine, but I think printing them all is a good idea. A very nice addition to my collection!

Heh, my printer would choke. All the color would kill it! A screen saver, now...that just takes another images folder.

And, actually, there are ways around the no-sale thing, so long as the proceeds go at least in part to charity. At least that's how it works for most franchises. My Star Wars group does an auction that always includes fan art (I do hand-painted Christmas bulbs) and because half the money goes to "Reading is Fundamental" *pimps literacy charity* they let the technical trademark violation slide. (LFL knows about it, at least unofficially--a few of their people have bought stuff!) Now, selling it on ebay or something, bad news. Outside the auction I only do licensed characters for gifts or, once, for a friend's Humane Society benefit auction.
