I draw for my own pleasure, I'm sorry but I don't take commissions, for drawings or My Little pony customs anymore.
I run a blog with my best friend H. 'Live it. Love it. Make it' . I also run a shop in my home town selling fabric and haberdashery as well as a photography business with my lovely husband. I'm a busy lady my drawings are my down time hobby, because of this I have chosen to disable comments.
I have my drawings on Tumblr now too, follow me there sammytvr.tumblr.com
you can follow me on Instagram sammytvr and twitter sammytvr or @livelovemake

Hi!)
Your arts are amazing and I just wanna ask, would you like to join our project? We're going to make presents for SPN-cast (Misha, Jensen, Jared and Osric) and we need good artist and beautiful arts. You can find all information in our tumblr: team-jib-gifts.tumblr.com/
So maybe you want to draw something for Jensen's or Osric's book or maybe we could use some of your already finished arts? Or maybe you could help to make a gift for Jared? Or recommend any artist who could join us?

Please, even if you're not intrested in this idea, help us to spread the word! Reblog this post (if you have a tumblr) team-jib-gifts.tumblr.com/post… and retweet this (if you have a twitter) twitter.com/dream__castle/stat…

And thank you anyway!)
Have a nice day :3Hi!)

Hi! I was looking at some of your work, and you are so talented it's ridiculous. Lately I've been trying out people more, because I love doing realism even though I'm not so great at it. Are there any tips you could give me to make my portraits look better? Thanks. <3

Thank you, you are sweet to say so <3 
Proportions are the most important thing, If you get those right you are halfway there. I use the grid system to position the features, working from a same size reference is also helpful. 
As an exersize try to look at a reference picture, not as a face but as a collection of shadows, light, medium and dark areas, as you draw the shadows, you will find the features that are eyes and mouth etc. grow from those shapes. Hope that makes sense? it is a good exersize to try if you are trying to improve your skills.
