Gift for a Proud New Mommy by Sabtastic Gift for a Proud New Mommy by Sabtastic
A surprise gift for my good friend and pseudo Aunt, ~linainversefan on behalf of her wife for her first wedding anniversary!

The two recently adopted a child (possibly more than one) from Libya, and will be returning from their trip soon, so I'm posting this ahead of time for Vana to find.

SSssshh!

(I don't personally think that the portrait does her justice-- but I've been really picky with it-- almost to a detrimental point. She's very pretty in real life. As is her wife.) c:

Aw, you're so welcome. C: It really was a pleasure.
I hope Margo has settled in just fine!
Means a lot that you and Vana both liked the picture so much. Realistic portraits have always been a little bit of a challenge for me, so I'm relieved! ^^;

Wait wait wait, so let me get this straight.

You're talented, kind, funny, beautiful and exceptionally nerdy... and now sensitive?

Is there anything about you that isn't filled with wonder?

Just curious...

Looks like the baby face is saying "SCORE" with all due respect as well! It came out great! Although if you think about it, it would be funny if the baby's blanket said, Made in Libya ;D

LOL!! Yeah, that is actually the reason why me and my wife want to adopt from "less-than" countries. So that we can provide children with a better life than they would have had. So yeah, Margo did 'score' by being adopted by us.

:icondurrhurrplz: is the expression of my face currently.

Just... wow and oh my god... I LOVE IT THANK YOU SO MUCH SAB!!! Wish I could fave 10 times over, maybe put it on a t-shirt. :)

Also going to have to give my loving and truly epic wife a big rib breaking momma bear hug for this...

Did Becca give you pictures or something, because you nailed my face structure. Everything from my wheat complexion, to my chocolate hair, to my chunky smile lines, you even somehow captured my loving aura.

The baby in my arms is beyond adorable. I like how it does seem like a middle eastern baby. We adopted a little girl, and I don't know how but I get a male baby vibe when looking at your drawing.

I love this giftart, I truly do, however the coat I am wearing is very pink. Nothing wrong with pink, just not a color I would usually wear. Is there any way I can get you to add some blue hue to it, make it more purple?

Sorry for the late reply!!! My internet has been sucking a bag of dicks lately. I've only been able to view one or two comments/deviations at a time before it craps out on me. It's been suuuper slow. :I

Seems better now, though!!
Anyway I'm super glad you like it!! :XD: I can probably do something about the colour of your vest, too. No big deal to swap that around to a darker/different colour. I'll most likely post this on NG as well. Don't see why not..!

By the way, the baby I used as a reference happened to be a boy, so you'd be right about the 'boy vibe'. Maybe I can add a little bow or something to make it look more like a girl? I don't really know what makes a boy baby look different from a girl. lol I helplessly rely on colour-coding babies with pink ribbons and blue dinosaurs to tell the difference.

No worries Sabby. Its the thought that counts, and... uh, you keep a bag of dicks laying around too? I thought Becca and I were only ones who had that.

Seriously though, I would greatly appreciate a different/darker color top. Its the only thing I would alter on this artwork. Only because pink really isn't my color, IRL does funky stuff with my wheat colored complexion.

No worries, the baby is fine. Don't need to add/alter it further. Just the jacket would do. :)

I still cannot get over this awesome gift artwork... its so vintage Sabtastic but also so interpersonal with me. Thank you 100 times over.

Just teasing Sab.

Also, now the artwork is perfect. Thank you so much! I really wish I could fave more than once, going to have to settle with spamming "vote 5's" on the newgrounds version (thanks for that BTW) for the rest of my life.
