You're welcome!  It was fun- and challenging to draw our favorite characters again.  I think the last time I did was about 35 years ago!  Also, this was the first time I ever did any kind of artwork 100% digitally.  So needless to say there were lots of occasions for frustrations and >34< >34<

Wow, wow, wow!!! MJM, it's wonderful! I'm reading it v-e-r-y slowly as I love looking at the details. It must have taken a  >34< lot of time indeed!  (You draw superb hands by the way... I hate drawing hands and am no good at it. And your horses are beautiful). It's very professional  :) :) :) Thanks so much for sharing it with us all  >22<
Cheers,
Sabrina

Yeah it sure did.. about 10 months.  It might have taken longer, but I had 6 weeks where I couldn't so anything except sit on my b*m and draw. So thatmade things go a bit faster.

Actually I hate drawing hands- and feet.  They usually give me the most trouble :P

Glad you liked it!

I read about half of it last night before going to bed - really enjoying it! The drawings are great - it's an absolute masterpiece!

People who don't like cats were probably mice in an earlier life.

Oh, wow, mjm, that story was BRILLIANT, the illustrations and colouring were incredible and I'm a sucker for happy endings.  >39< >39< >39< Almost missed seeing it too, as I was in a rush earlier, fortunately it was mentioned in this thread.  :)  Can't believe how much talent there is among the membership here, you all constantly take my breath away.  Well done, it was amazing!  :)

My comment was buried in the "comments on fanfics" thread but I think it should be here.  :)
