The Longbodys by nyctopterus The Longbodys by nyctopterus
Although he was rather homely, and she not exactly pretty, Mr. and Mrs. Longbody were widely regarded as an handsome couple.

This owes something to two Whistler portraits, but I'm too lazy to scan and upload them.

My friend *athenatt sent me to your page. I really like this one, except for the fact that their heads are black and their hair is brown... it kind of takes all my attention away from the rest of the picture

You really should do Whistler's mum.

...For some reason, this reminds me of Amish people.

Extraordinarily well done old chap.

I love this.They make the perfet couple;not hansome,not beautiful or rich but that does not matter.I guess what this means is that you can always find your soul-mate no matter how you look or act.Nice job,*nyctopterus.
