That's exactly what I meant!

I would never presume to put an artist on a timetable! That's just cruel.

It's not really putting an artist on a timetable. Since the avatars are up, the pictures have already been drawn. It's just that LM wants to give people the chance to admire each picture for a week before putting up the next.

Lily, I would be very happy to do a portrait for you. Gather all of the information and send it to me in the PM. I hope that I can use the picture that you mentioned, but if not you will have to find me another one. OK !!

Well, I sent three, only one is apparently close up enough (but at least the others are in color and the one with the horse shows about the right complexion. Crap, have I *always* been that pale?!?)

Come on, Lily, you can overcome the camera allergy long enough, I do! Or take a Benadryl.

I'm wondering if I could send a photo to Cheryl to pass on to you, Lady Maelin. It's a bit of a cheeky one, in a similiar vein to Robin Wood's picture of Piemur. Wondering if we're related somehow?????? Piemur and myself as we've got a similiar outlook on life. That's if you've got a spare spot to fill.

Lily, Don't panic !!!! we will find something that will work, as long as you are not to upset

at looking a little younger, and in slightly different pose than the one picture that I have ended

up with so far. I am still waiting for one from Cheryl that she is going to try and make a little

clearer. The ole eyes are not what they use to be.

We will see that you get a portrait, don't worry. We are getting a lot of

help from some lovely friends...... .......Thankl you Jax for sending those

in also, it seems our Lily really gets around, with visiting Anne fans.

!! Those pics of Jax's are one of the reasons I am allergic to cameras!!!!

Hopefully, Cheryl or Pam will let you have at least three taken by Pam when I was fortunate enough to be able to visit USA 18 months ago and catch a signing session with Anne at Huntington Beach.
Jax and I met while she was still in New Zealand, and I have been lucky enough to meet a few other fans. Some when they themselves have been on a visit to New Zealand.

Look younger!!!!!! Maelin, darling lady, this would be welcome -iron out them lines by all means!!!!! You're a champ!!!

Lily, We are good to go now, I have a very nice picture of you, thanks to our talented Cheryl . I can still smooth, and tuck a bit, for you.... ...not a problem, too bad I can't do it for both of us in real life.

Thank you Cheryl, for all of your help with the picture of Lily, it was my fault I should have seen it earlier... ...then we would have had all the running around. Sorry I had you working so much harder than you should've. I will look there first next time.

Creating a new post for this topic, as directions have altered slightly. [Really just the waiting list, which is now a rolling waiting list, and a note that Maelin only draws dragonriders conforming to canon rules as to which genders rude which colors.]
