Thanks for that heads up. I've heard that they aren't nearly as good as the show... I'll hold off buying them, although.... if I happen to see them at a second hand shop for only a few pennies I may not be able to help myself Smiley

My love affair with Dexter started the same way yours did Cheesy It's like a blind date you aren't super pumped about but then the guys turns out to be super awesome and you want to marry him and have his babies... Or watch his show every week...

Beautiful painting, I would hang that in my bedroom for sure. Shh! Don't tell my boyfriend Wink

Hey Fiber People: I am very interested in personal swaps for painted/dyed roving or top. I can swap supplies or crafted items. Let's talk!

the picture is dead on. looks exactly like him. sweet skillZZ, lol.
Your portrait is awesome.  You totally captured the hunkiness/ creepiness of the character.  I love it.  Rocking it!
amazing portrait, and I like that you chose to portray him bowling. its so... benign and friendly Wink I still can't figure out how I can love a serial killer... damn show knows its shit.
I really have to agree with all of the above!!
You did an amazing job and completely captured the essence of Dexter...I'm sure you'll get a lot of really good offers for your portrait.
"This (Totally) Rocks"...click!

Had to jump in with my two bits - first off I love the painting - it rocks as much as Dexter does.  Grin (we're in the middle of season two here in the UK so no one spoil it for me ok!!)

and secondly - you mentioned maybe getting the books? dont. The series is much better. The books totally lack the charm and wit that the writers have put into the tv show.  Sad

I totally agree! The painting is amazing, I love the show, and don't buy the books.

How awesome! Yeah I saw the thumbnail and was like "that guy looks like Dexter! But it can't be..." You did a fantastic job!! I've only seen a few eps but I totally love it and the concept so I definitely need to catch up! AMAZING!

First of all, I am thinking that I just may hang this in the closet on my side of the bed so that when I peer over in the middle of the night it will be just like Dexter is hiding in there which would be totally creepy... yet awesome. Is that weird?  Wink

Secondly, I totally forgot that Dexter doesn't take up bowling until season two! Almost no one I know has seen season two yet (it JUST got released on DVD today in Canada) and I was begining to wonder why everyone seemed to think that painting Dexter bowling was odd. Doh!

Lastly, I'll take the advise and leave the books then. I don't want to sully the lovely version of the charater/story I've come to know and love Smiley
