I tried to draw the characters as I picture them, I got close but they're not exactly right.... well, someday I hope to portray them as I imagine them... I have to keep drawing and trying, right?
Things I'm happy about:
- Alice. She's the one who came out almost exactly as I picture her.
- Their hairs. I love to draw hair and I can't find a style I like... I always draw hair in different ways. These don't look like REAL hairs, but I like them all the same. The only one I'm not entirely happy with is Emmett's.
- Jasper and Emmett's expressions. Their expressions reflect how I see their personality... Emmett's got a confident and making-fun-of-you smile while Jasper is a calm and you-don't-know-what-I'm-thinking smile :P
Things I'm not happy about:
- Emmett's height. I imagine him as the taller of them all, but he's not THAT tall. How tall do you imagine the characters to be? (maybe I should go to the Twilight Lexicon and check on everyone's height...)
- Bella's pointy chin. Too pointy.
- Rosalie's expression. I couldn't draw it as I wanted.
- Their eyes... Next time I should draw in a way that you can see their colour.
Now it's your turn... what did you like or dislike about it? You can be honest, I promise I won't be angry ;)
Hope you liked it!

I really like Alice...like you said, almost how I pictured her. I also like Rosalie...she has a petulant look on her face which fits her character. Esme is good, too. Her gentleness really shines.
I think Emmett's height is fine, isn't he supposed to be quite large in the books? I don't remember exactly how tall, but he's not a shrimp!
Jasper is good, as is Dr. Cullen (I can't think of his name!!). Edward needs to look a bit more fierce, I guess. More possessive of Bella. Bella looks too happy to me. She's always so depressed in the books.
Otherwise, I love it!
I'm really happy you liked it...!
Yeah, I know Emmett is supposed to be quite large (Bella's dad described him so). I hope I got him right. And Dr. Cullen's name is Carlisle :P What a difficult name. I can write it but I can't pronounce.
I think you're right about Edward... He's only carefree when he's alone with Bella. LOL and I don't think she's always so depressed... but I'll try to tame her happiness a little... give her a calm smile, or something.
They look awesome! I always kind of imagine Edward as the same height as the doctor (having a memory blank on his name!!!) and definitely taller than Jasper, but I think you've got Emmett pegged as this huge, hulking bear of a guy that would tower over everyone else.
Alice is adorable! Overall, I really really like how you've depicted them. They are very close to how I see them in my mind also. Great job!
Thank you so much! :D
You imagine Edward as taller than Jacob? o.0 Hmmmm... I wonder if that's really how it is. *makes a mental note to visit the Lexicon* Even though when reading the books it doesn't matter much, everyone should have their own imagination of how the characters look like, right? For example, Edward is supposed to be perfect, but there isn't a kind of perfect that applies to everyone's taste, me thinks ^^
Anyways, thanks for the comment! ;D
That's gorgeous, Amanda. :)
Thanks so much, dear *hugs*
I need to read the Twilight books. They're on my list. ;) I personally like the picture very much, but I haven't got any preconceptions about what anyone should look like. Now I reallly want to read them so I can see who you're talking about. You're such a gifted artist. Which reminds me, could you email me your regular mailing address again?
You definitely should! :D And I do hope you'll like the books. They're really addictive.
*off to send you my mailing address* Sorry it took me so long!
I love this drawing so much, it's beautiful! You drew most of the characters similar to how I imagine them to be (though I suppose Emmett's hair should be curlier). The only that isn't exactly how I picture him is Edward, but I think he's the hardest to get anyway. I honestly don't even know if I have a concrete image of Edward in my head, he's too pretty. I do imagine him dressier, though, maybe a shirt with a collar.
Btw, Emmett is the tallest, I just forgot how tall. You should definitely check out the Twilight Lexicon, it tells you everything.
Emmett's hair is curly? 0.0 I didn't know.
I honestly don't even know if I have a concrete image of Edward in my head
I don't have it either. That's why it's so difficult for me to draw him and get him exactly right. If you see my previous drawings of Edward, he looks different on each one :/ I hope I can get him right, someday. (maybe the mood of the picture influences it... if I draw something more dark, he'll get more of a feeling of vampire and handsomeness? :P)
LOL! I imagine him dressier too! I don't know why I had him looking more casual.
I love it, Amanda! I especially love how Alice has sneaked her hand around Bella's waist and has a sneaky little smile on her face. Emmett is perfect. I agree that Bella's chin is a bit pointy, and Edward isn't quite how imagined him.
It's BEAUTIFUL. I wish I could draw like you! *hugs*
Thank you! :D I'm glad you noticed the little details of Alice's hand... and I agree with you that Edward isn't quite right. I think his built is more like I imagine than his face... but for me, Edward's face is the most difficult to draw... how can I draw someone so perfect?? It doesn't help that I don't have a clear picture of him in my head.
Thanks so much! *hugs*

Ahora si puedo comentar porque ya me lei y el libro y ya se quien es quien ;)
Mis favoritos son Rosalie y Alice. Rosalie se ve petulante, justo como la imagino. Alice es pequena, alegre y con rasgos elfinos, justo como la imaghinaba.
Edward tambien me gusta, pero por alguna razon lo imagino con el menton un poquito mas ancho y el pelo un poquitin mas largo (pero solo un poco). Precisamente es por eso que no me gusta Gaspard Uliel, por su menton (y la cicatriz).
Que bien! :D Me pone feliz q te guste mi dibujo..!
El problema con Edward es que su imagen se basea mucho en la opinion personal de los lectores, porque cada uno tiene su imagen de lo que es un chico lindo, no? Pero yo creo que tu imagen de Edward es parecida con la de quien escribio el libro... Eso porque en su pagina web tiene una foto de un actor que le gustaria que fuese Edward (Henry Cavill, no se si lo conoces)... :)
Gracias por el comentario!

Alice and Jasper look WONDERFUL *O* Jasper is exactly the way I imagine him to be <3
And I love the clothes you've drawn for them all!
Thanks so much! :D I'm happy you liked my Jasper, and the clothes. I love to draw clothes...

♥ This is amazing, I can't wait for that next time you were talking about in the eyes point. ;D
Thank you! ;) And you can be sure that time is coming.
my only problem is with Bella's head. She basically has no forehead and her hair is sitting almost on top of her eyes. Just look at the other females you drew and you'll see the difference.
I love Bella's outfit tho
And you're right, of course. I forgot what Stephenie said about Bella's forehead... it's supposed to be big, right? Or at least, bigger than how I drew it. Thanks for pointing that out! ;)
Wow! I love this. All of them look very close to how I imagine them... I don't think Emmett is too tall, since he's supposed to be gigantic anyway. But Jasper is a little tall, especially if you compare him to Alice. She's so tiny. But she's cute. :) I also like Esme and Carlisle--Esme has that soft, motherly expression that's so perfect for her, and Carlisle's got the slicked-back hair and a sort of professional doctor look. Overall, awesome job!
Thanks so much! I'm happy you liked my portrayal of the characters :) And I definitely should look into the characters's heights more.
these are exactly how I pictured them! I am going to start seeing them as these cartoons everytime i read the book now.
I really like how you can tell that edward is the youngest by how boyish he still looks. I keep stareing it, expecting them to start talking to me or something! XD Please come out with more!!!
Thank you so very much! :D I'm really happy that you like my art enough to start imagining the characters as I drew them, it really means a lot. I'll be sure to come out with more.
I had my my mouth open for like a whole minute XD
this drawing rocks so much
I totally love as you said Emment's and Jasper's expression, it really shows how they are
And Alice OMG, she is excellent! :)
great job :3
Thank you very much! :D I'm happy you liked the picture!
omg!!! this is AMAZING! gorgeous work <333
It's lovely! I love how itty bitty Alice is. :P Love Rosalie's expression, actually - she looks so stuck up. And Emmett should be just a smidge shorter, yeah, but I think it's right to have him the tallest.
You did a really great job on all the clothing, too.
I also like how everyone else looks fairly comfortable and Bella looks like she was sort of abruptly dragged into the picture by Alice and Edward...or maybe not quite like that, but she looks al ittle uncomfortable, you know? It's good.
I will have to go to the Lexicon so I can check everyone's heights... The more I know about the characters, the better the drawing will be, I guess.
And I'm glad you like the clothing!
Oh my goodness! That's AMAZING. Perfect CULLENS!!!!! *.* I love it.
Your art work is amazing! No matter what you say! I could not even come close to your amazing talent! I hope to see more in the future! Again great job!!!!
Thank you so much :)
I love you icon, btw.
wowza, amazing!!!!!! i think you captured my version of alive perfectly!
This is amazing ♥ Awesome job.
I don't even have anything else to say. It's that good haha :)
I'm really happy you liked it :D

This is really, really beautiful! Do you mind if I friend your art journal?
Thank you :) And you're welcome to friend my journal, I'm happy that you'd like to do that.
Oh it's just beautiful. Really stunning.
Your artwork is always so pretty! :D
Thanks so much! :D I'm so happy you liked it.
Oh I absolutely love it! I like Emmett's height - I imagine him as huge as that. I like Bella! Rosalie looks uhappy but well - she wasn't happy to see Bella there, was she?
I'm so happy you liked it! :D Thanks so much.
Yeah, I don't think Rosalie would be happy to have Bella there... and she doesn't strike me like a 'person' (should I say vampire? ;P) who smiles in pictures, maybe a sarcastic grin or something... ^^' at least, that's the image I have of her.
I though Rosalie's exression was pretty good. I like your impression of her. And Alice. And Jasper.
But I never really thought of Edward as the sweatshirt kind.
I'm happy you liked them :)
Hmm.. I was trying to go for casual when I chose their clothes, but I'm so bad at men's clothes... I'm not very creative with them, and I often choose the wrong kind of clothing they'd use. ^^' What do you think he should wear?
