The novel by Victor Hugo is an epic read, if anyone has not yet read Les Miserables' it's truly a classic

You're quite welcome! I Les Miserables was an amazing movie. I love the fact that they sung live. That made it so much more emotional and beautiful. :iconluvluvplz:

Could you possible take a peek at my artwork? It's not that great, I turned 13 in late February (as if my age should be an excuse for the poor quality!) Oh well.
Thanks so very much! :painter: :love:

Thank you :) patience in drawing has always been a challenge for me. While most of my drawings take about 4 hrs or less, I spent 21 hrs on this. Hope I can have the patience to draw more pieces like this :)

I've only done two realistic portraits, and I know that each one seems to be taking longer and longer to draw. I'm only a beginner, but I know what you mean by time. My first one took 7 hours while my second took at least 10 hours!
