Oh, Sylvie, Sylvie, Sylvie. Our friendship goes back to when she first started stalking me online back in around 2003. We quickly became the greatest BFFs online; mainly, we replied to each other’s post comments on LiveJournal, normally resulting to massive threads of random, silly conversations. Whenever we did meet up in real life, it was quiet and awkward… we spoke so much online that topics would run out when face-to-face. It was a recurring odd cycle.
All that has changed in the past few months, only recently have I realized how much she makes me smile, the dynamic has changed a lot between us since those LiveJournal days. Somehow, there’s a lot more comfort between us, we share a lot more, have flowing conversations, if there is silence, it’s not the awkward kind, and the silliness is still there. It feels nice.
Sylvie’s extremely beautiful, she has a lot to say, lots of passion about learning new things, she’s very affectionate and kind with a great sense of humour, an awesome photographer, aaand she’s also a geek. Huge plus. You can’t help but love her once you get to know her. She also complains a lot to me, but I do the same with her; I believe we understand each other quite well.
Also, she makes me hyper for some reason!!!
Although the initial plan was to draw a comic caricature where her quirky and playful personalities are represented, I went for the complete opposite with a darker portrait. Something different.
And she really does have killer eyes.
