Surprise Sketch! {Round 2}

Good Morning, Ladies & Gents!

I hope you like surprises!

Last night I cuddled up with my sketch pad, put some Pink Floyd on, grabbed my drawing tools, and started drawing a certain blogger you may already know and love. For Round 2 of this fun new project of mine I'm going to let you first guess who it might be... 

Any ideas?


...does she look familiar? :)

Hint Hint... she's a newlywed, she sings, loves high fives....
Goes by TBS? Has a gorgeous SAPPHIRE wedding ring?

OK, if you didn't already guess, it's LINDSAY from Trial By Sapphire!

Surpriseeee! :D

What a gorgeous woman she was to draw! That smile may be contagious but was also challenging (no offense, Lindsay!). Teeth and hair are two of the hardest things for me to get right in drawings, but I'm pretty happy with the turnout- I hope she is too!

And hey, Linds... if you hate it, just think at least it didn't turn out like this... 

Yikes...


Who's going to be featured next week? Maybe... you?!

If you'd like to have the chance of your portrait being chosen for Surprise Sketches, go ahead and email me a high-res photo of yourself (preferably close up) and I'll put it in my inspiration bucket! 

Please know that it's not guaranteed and I will only be drawing people I'm familiar with... that means if you're a blog follower and a regular commenter, you'll pass the test!  


And before you go...
 I'll be nice and remind you to go enter
Quick! Ends Sunday @ Midnight EST
