Re: SOS! Trade a custom bird portrait for fashion help?

You look really great. It's a very professional look, but there's also something a bit quirky about it. I think it's how your hair is all pulled back and because you have the dark-rimmed glasses.

I'm chuckling a bit at the mention of your height. I'm clueless about whether you feel tall or small! I'm a 6'2" woman from a 5'6" to 5'9" family! No idea where my height came from, but I grew 5 INCHES IN 1 YEAR in hight school!

I think the Rickeybird himself would agree you are a mighty good-lookin’ young hen, even for a featherless one. You go get ‘em!

I'm the jealous type. He's not getting a look at her, not one!

Bliss!
I always wanted to wear one of those froufrou dresses covered in marabou or ostrich feather

Now that I have birds, I am a little worried that I'll show up for an interview with a tiny feather sticking out of my hair and that I will remind people of the crazy bus driver lady from South Park.

Yes, that is a true reality. Kiwi would not have it any other way. In fact likely well schooled in not only Bird Law, but specialized in Amazon Law!

Re: SOS! Trade a custom bird portrait for fashion help?

Wow! This tread had a lot of replies yesterday! Thank you everyone. Feedback seems overwhelmingly positive too I'm still terribly nervous though. Now I know I at least look like I have it together in a photo, we'll see how that holds up in the real world (or online world, lots of angry, unpleasant people on the internet too). Thankfully, I have discovered most of these 'social media' sites it is actually best to use an example of your art as the profile picture, something I have NO issue with lol. Except Linkedin, and this photo will work well enough for that platform, I think since it is a site that requires a professional appearance.

As for being a lawyer for that shameless law breaking green sandwich bandit... Yes judge, the 'honk' and wing flare means he pleads guilty to all charges plus a few you didn't even know about. He's indefensible!
