This our own MoM, Staff member Pam, She since she loves the Crystal series, I did her as a Crystal singer. I hope that you enjoy this one.

Enjoy is such a small word

I love the portrait and, although Mad about Pern, is is SO nice to see a Crystal Singer! Wonderful. And I would have easily recognised Pam from it even had no name been given! Like someone else recently said, you are not only good at portraits, Maelin, but indeed the clothing you draw has exactly the right "feel"

Amazing! Lucky Pam! (My preference is for the Talent series, but I'll happily wait for what you come up with for Jamaillia of Pern. )

Wow! She does look like she's in crystal thrall.

One of my least favorite series, but I can still appreciate excellent work.

I am so very happy that you all are liking this one. It was done before I decided I would do member portraits, and only the Pern persona's ones. Trying to get enough of the outfit of a Crystal Singer, to show that it was indeed a singer, was somewhat interesting to figure out.

We probably won't hear much from Pam. Someone will have to go get her out of thrall. But not for a while yet, let her enjoy!
