My Favorite Time of Year by meadow-rue My Favorite Time of Year by meadow-rue
Drawing Vegeta smiling proved a real challenge...once you take those frown lines away he starts to look like someone completely different but I got it right in the end. He really does look happy and carefree, like the Autumn wind has blown all his troubles away ^_^

What could have possibly made him smile? I might actually like him if he ever did that! Oh and if I didn't boycott the show out of sheer annoyance...

Didja ever see Addams Family Values? If you have, u'll recognize this line that sums up the experience:

"He's scaring me!!"
