Ah now this pic is one for my friend's 18th B-Day pic, Sami is a warm though tough, bubbly though gothic loving bear of a young woman. She often calls herself Samantha Amy Dark Rose, which was inspired by the Sonic the Hedghog character and so I played on the by making her bear self look like a dark rose. This was the first fully hand drawn and coloured, fully finished, A4 pic I've done in about a year and it felt so good to do another proper pic again. When doing this pic I had forgotten a few of my old shading techniques but picked up a few more like how to colour rose petals. The pic took several very late nights but I deffinatly think it was worth it.
