Watercolor Friends Forever by simpspin Watercolor Friends Forever by simpspin
Well, here it is, the last Maggie and Eric picture for a very long time. This is a recolor of my 2nd Favorite picture and the original B&W was drawn in the summer of 2002.

Here, Felecia is hugging Eric over the flowers he gave her. They're at Felecia's grandfather's house in the Rockies.

I just colored the shaded areas but didn't fill in the black lines. If I was doing an original pic, I use Sketchbook pro to make jitter free inked lines.

Unfortunetly, no. I'm going back to my old-skool ways with pencil and paper with Generations, part 3 for a while. However, when I do get more concrete ideas for my spinoff spinoff "Evolution" I'll be back to colors.

I appreciate it. :)

I don't remember if I mentioned, it but Eric and Felecia's friendship is based on me and girl I used to know between the ages of 5-9.

Me and Felecia were pretty much BF and GF (I taught her how to kiss when I was 6 :wow: ) up until we both had to move across the country when we were in the 3rd grade. Since there was no internet back then, we lost touch and I didn't find her until 2002.

Young love...sad and funny at the same time.

Yep, this is pretty sad if you think about it like that. I also lost my little boyfriend around 10 years ago, because he moved somewhere.

But it still was funny and cute, when I remember how we used to hang out around our neighborhood together and he gave me a big bouquets of lilacs :giggle: Very sweet memory.

He sounded like a real sweetheart. :)

I remember when I was 6 I baked Alicia a coffee cake after finding some recipe cards, but before I could give her the cake, my family ate it thinking I made it for them. :lol:

Gonna miss seeing new ones, but seeing the conclusion of Generations will surely be worth the wait!

This one's definitely a beauty. The colors are very vibrant as well, lending to the mood of the picture. Very nicely done!

I'm thankful you enjoyed it. There are going to be new pictures scattered around, but they'll be "Simpsons Evolution" pics, all of which will be colored (I hope). :)
