My Super-Soaked Sweet 16 - P12 by jbwarner86 My Super-Soaked Sweet 16 - P12 by jbwarner86
Now that’s a birthday gift! This is definitely one of the most ambitious effects I’ve done. I found a website where I could make my own photo mosaic, but I had to actually draw the “photos” for it first, so I created a sampling of Danielle’s extensive portfolio featuring Jamie at her underwater best. Of course, in-universe, Danielle actually took the time to put this mosaic together herself, as a heartfelt tribute to her daughter. If that doesn’t say “love”, I don’t know what does. :D

Well, I suppose that does have a way of blending both passions. Bravo for the effort. :clap:

What makes you say that?

It just seems that the typical teen would expect something more, ya know? A car, new designer clothes, or something your average teen would want. I doubt that a picture (especially one that reminds her that her mom's job "seemingly" outweighs what her daughter wants) would make up for her "supposedly" lackluster birthday. She might just storm out the door, or at the very least be disappointed that she didn't get something better.

Though, teens do tend to be blinded by their parent's true intentions. Hopefully the written inscription will help our little protagonist to realize how terrible she was actin'.

I can't wait to see if what her mom wrote either softened her heart, or opened the gates of hell.:D

The "typical", "average" teen, eh?... Not many of em' fall under that standard, ya' know. :hmm:

A simple picture to others may seem like just a VERY simple thing to "just have", but believe me; Even the "seemingly" smallest act of kindness and generosity can go way beyond it's boundaries. :D

That's true. I experienced it plenty of times right here on dA when peeps draw my characters. 

I guess you can just chalk it up to experience. The teens I've seen throughout life just tend to try to grow up waaaay to fast, or just wanna have fun with materialistic things. In this instance, a picture would only buy happiness for a small amount of time to more teens than the ones that would actually appreciate the sentiment for years to come.

I know that individuality and one's own upbringing comes into play as well, but again this is just what I've experienced myself.

When I saw the (shrunken down) DApicture I thought it was meant to be a painted portrait. But yeah, a mosaic picture is great too. I like Jamie's expression in comic-panels 4/5.
I'd say this could go either way, as Jamie has yet to have a reaction to the present. One one hand, she could be offended that even this turns out to be the scrapings of her mothers's all-devouring photography. Or she could be satisfied by the close-up because it's all about _herself_ for once. Teens are supposed to love vanity, right?
