Warmest birthday wishes to ssddgr! 
15th-Mar-2010 05:23 pm
(The joints of my stupid-ass hands are all swollen and aching like bitches, so I'll have to make this brief.)

Happy birthday, Sotia! I hope you've had a superb day and that the coming year will be full of happiness and joy! *hugs you tight*

You've been an absolutely wonderful friend to me - for which I'll be forever grateful - and I love you! ♥

Also, I have a little present for you. A Spuffy shaped one. I'd say the manip is semi-worksafe as in quite a lot of skin can be seen, but there's nothing particularly explicit about it. If that makes any sense.

There's nothing deep or philosophical about the manip. (No shit, Sherlock! I'm sure there'll be a parade on the day I manage to refrain from stating the obvious.) Basically, this is the result of me desperately trying to scrape together a manip after, like, eight months of not manipping at all. I have no idea why Buffy and Spike are standing there in their underwear like that, but maybe they don't need any particular reason for doing so. I know I'd be walking around in my underwear all the time if I looked even remotely as good as they do. ;) Also, I finished the manip a bit over a week ago and I still don't know if I got the proportions and head angles right.

Amen, sister! They're in their underwear because we like them that way...lol! This is excellent, once again, I still get giddy to see anything new from you=)

Hee, I'm so glad you agree with my reasoning! :D
Thank you so, so much for your kind words! I am absolutely delighted (and more than a little relieved) to hear you think it turned out alright! Yay! *does a little happy dance*
Aw you! ♥ It makes me feel all warm and fuzzy inside to hear that. *huggles*

You know your work will always be amazing to me. Speaking of, I did another manip the other day. You always seem to post right after I make something new...lol! If you're interested to see it, this is my favorite one, out of like six versions. I'm never satisfied: http://i186.photobucket.com/albums/x233/TammyDevil666/Artwork/TaylorSwift27copy4.jpg

No matter how hard I try, I can't seem to get the head to cooperate, but I can see a drastic change to how I used to do them. Here's the regular, black and white version. I like it better than the color: http://i186.photobucket.com/albums/x233/TammyDevil666/Artwork/TaylorSwift27copy2.jpg

And just for the heck of it, here's the colored one: http://i186.photobucket.com/albums/x233/TammyDevil666/Artwork/TaylorSwift27copy.jpg

I still have a long way to go, but at least I'm seeing some improvements=)

Aw. *blushes* That is - I don't even know what to say. Except for thank you. Thank you so, so much for being so awesome and kind! *hugs*

Really? Hee, that's brilliant! It's like we'd had our manipping activities somehow magically synchronized. xD

Oooh, beautiful manip is beautiful! I think you got the head to cooperate pretty damn nicely! *stares at the pretty*

I think the first one is my favorite as well. The coloring looks terrific and really complements the atmosphere of the piece.

All in all, I love it! It's a gorgeous manip! You've done excellent job with the blending as well as the colors, and it just works. In every possible way. *nods*

Thank you so much for sharing these with me!

Aww, thanks, your opinion means a lot since you're like a manipping expert=)
15th-Mar-2010 10:00 pm (UTC)
You're most welcome! It's a beautiful manip and deserves to be acknowledged as such. :)

Aw, you're spoiling me rotten with your kindness! *huggles* I'm afraid I'm not worthy of such a fancy title, though. I mean, I have no idea what I'm doing 99% of the time and if I actually manage to make something that more or less works it's always more by accident than design. Seriously, I'm barely a dabbler.

The manip is perfect and I can't thank you enough for it, or for your friendship. It brings tears to my eyes that you remembered me and created something do beautiful for me. I love you.

*hugs*

You're most welcome, sweetie! *hugs you so very tight*
It makes my heart swell with happiness to hear you like the manip. That's what really matters, after all - that you like it since it was made for you. And seriously, you have given me such a great gift in the form of your friendship that I feel like it's me who won't be able to thank you enough.
I love you too! Fiercely! ♥

Thank you so much, sweetie! Your approval means a great deal to me, and I'm just absolutely delighted to hear you think so! Yay! *flaily hands of happiness*

Aww, thanks, your kind words are most highly appreciated! *hugs*

I already told you the manip is great, but I'll say it again: The manip is great :)
I complitely agree with them looking amazing in their underwear and they really should not wear anything else at all :)

Aw, I know you did, bb! Receiving your message made me incredibly happy, and this lovely comment of yours right here is like the icing on the cake. *is all smiles*

Thank you so much for your kind words - I truly appreciate it from the bottom of my heart! *huggles*

Hee, I'm glad we agree on the underwear issue. And omg yes, I concur, there really is no need for them to wear any other clothes, like, ever. :D

They're in their underwear because they're just that awesome. That or they can't afford pants. ;)

It looks fantastic to me, sweetie. I love the high contrast of the black and white. The angle and sizing of the heads looks just fine to me. The tones match well too. In short... awesome.

I'd like to think it is indeed their awesomeness that keeps them so lightly clothed. Then again, given their occupations - a vampire and a slayer - it is obviously possible that the assholes at the bank still won't give them a loan. But I'd rather go with the first option. Because it makes me happy. And because their underwear is way too fancy for pants-deprived people. ;)

Thank you so much, sweetie! I'm absolutely delighted to hear you think so! Yay! *does the dance of utter happiness* I know I've said this before, but it's so awesome to get such detailed feedback from a fellow manipper! I truly appreciate it and value your opinion most highly.

And omg, your icon is gorgeous! ♥

BECAUSE LJ LOVES TO HATE US??

Aww, that is such a lovely compliment - thanks so much, bb! I'm absolutely delighted you find the manip to be worthy of such high praise! :D *beams*

partial spuffy nudity needs no reasoning! it just is.
Omg, I'm giggling so hard right now! xD You are a genius and this is both most perfectly put and so very true! xD
