    That's Ridley's evil twin. Or good twin. Not sure, they seem to be on varying levels of evil...

    Hi to you too, Lio. Sorry if I'm still not around much; my parents are going to be up in Michigan for a while, and between a 40-hour work week and needing to look after the house and 7 cats I've been run this side of ragged. :(

    :D Nah. If only it were that simple. Mom's rehabilitated a number of stray cats over the years, turning them from outdoor life to indoors. Much to my detriment, since it means that until she and Dad are able to get a semi-permanent home up in Michigan, I need to take care of all 7 of them.

    Those who know me know that I'm obsessed with cats, but I'd prefer to draw the line at two or three. The fact that we have a mostly-finished basement is the only thing keeping me from going crazy. ()^_^

    But since you've mentioned Amber, I may as well toss this out there. I can't recall if you've seen it yet or not, but I was able to get a picture of Amber commissioned earlier in the year.

    Very cool. I always loved commissioning artist. I used to commission Pip from Sins all the time. Don't have the money for it these days.

    I always thought her cat form was bigger.

    Admittedly Maine Coons are pretty big, but to the best of my knowledge they don't get much bigger than this. I mean, Ambush is already a bit past Amber's knees in the picture, even discounting his ears. (For context, Amber's about 5'5".)

    Solely to satisfy my curiosity: on average when you commissioned something from Pip, how much did it cost?

    A single character was $20. I'd have to go deeper into my old emails to find other pricing. It's been Nine years since since I've commisioned him so I don't know if the price has changed or if he's still doing them. I know he has Patreon now.

    I don't think there are many artists out there I like enough to commission. Maybe Phil Foglio, but I imagine his prices would be astronomical.

    From what I've seen of the works he's done, I'd say it was pretty decent quality for the price. :)

    By contrast, that picture up there was mighty expensive. Taking into account the number of subjects, the background and the art style, the total cost was around $103. Normally I wouldn't spend that much, but I was having trouble locating someone who not only drew both humans and cats but whose Commission counter wasn't closed off, and I really wanted someone with actual skill to draw a picture of Amber. :eek:

    Isn't he the guy who draws Girl Genius?
