Portrait Partners Needed Badly! Puleeez!

For a while I have been practicing portraits. I actually started this with the help of the wonderful group The Portrait Party. The person who started this group is Rama Hughes, a phantastic illustrator. Besides Tommy Kane, he´s my favorite illustrator. He gets a lot of requests for portrait exchanges, but hasn´t got the chance to do all of them besides his job. So he started a contest. The person who brings the most new partners into the group in August will have the chance to exchange portraits with him.
I really do want to exchange portraits with him badly, as I admire his art. So please help me win this contest. I´ll exchange portraits with anyone. I don´t need great artists, I just need YOU to draw my portrait and I´ll draw yours. (I really don´t care about the level or skill you have, I wouldn´t even mind a stickman. Stickwoman would be better though! ;) )

Take your courage and send me a pic of yours. Please!


Update:

ooh, I see me in your moo cards, what a treat.
i'll do a portrait again with you if you want. I have some better pictures, and have loosened up a bit with my style. Just let me know - I think it's going to be a tie between you and Ms.Bite

Mim, I wasn´t very satisfied with the portrait i did of you at first, but now i really like it. it´s one of my favs. and only my fav pics made it to a moo card. ;)
there is not going to be a tie. i guess the winner of the contest is already made out. i just don´t have the time for doing so many portraits as jeanette.and for the contest i need new partners.

anyway, i would love to do another one with you. send me your pics and i´ll let you know when i get it done. (i guess in september). hmmm... i´ll have to try another style so that you won´t have two similar portraits. or you want me to choose a theme for the portrait (like halloween, romantic mim, costume mim, punk mim, *lol). any ideas?

Mim said...

Punk Mim sounds great! I'll send you one. You're right about it having to be new partners - oh well. I do want to do yours again, I can see how tight I was with the first one. You can send me another picture or I'll use "sad glasses" if you want.
Thanks,

Thanks everybody. The competition is over and I almost made it. I had a lot of fun. So I´ll still be doing some more portraits in my spare time. :)
