If I close my eyes after looking in that sweet face I can almost feel her against my chest...I've always had a very good imagination .Thanks for letting her snuggle her in my mind for a moment.It means alot that you would share her. Thanks

Yes it is and I'm so impressed that you knew.My son was studing Pointulism in schools so I did some in the class room from looking at photos so the kids could see how it worked. It's painstakinsly slow and one false slip of the pen ...you start over but it is a nice look when done. Thanks

Cool sketch. You should stay with it coz you drew it and there would be no chance that someone else has the same avatar as yours...unless they copy that image. I missed sketching. I used to sketch and make comic strips when I was younger. Good thing you still have time for it.

I did that one a number of years ago.I might do it everyday for months then not again for a year so pick up whatever media you prefer and start again. Thanks

It's nice and you're really good at making it.. I think you should stay with it, it's pretty nice to look at.. Are you an artist? I've never sketch anything that good, I'm afraid it might turn out bad in the end.. hehe I usually do things on photoshop so that what I would design might be more accurate..

Don't understand the keeping up thing. In any case you change as you see fit. Let it express you in any way you need. There are no hard and fast rules for the avatars. I should be chaning mine soon anyway. So I hope you do as you feel you should, it is your decision.

I love this sketch and always have seems I knew the A-- in person. Just a suggestion, wonder what it looks like in sepia cause when I first looked, it was so white and I thought your avitar was gone. Of course the old one was so colorful, so just need to get used to this one. I have to say I was shocked at first and then my eyes focused in.

I think you should keep it. I rated your picture a +. It is so cute. Donkeys are cute it is just the noise they make. I am not saying you make alot of noise. You did a wonderful job on the sketch.

well honey I really like this but then I have liked them all! you and gabs are gonna send me round the twist trying to keep up with you! I am glad that you told us why you were using it - I was trying to figure out if you were saying something like " I'm as stubborn as a mule!" .........
