Recently I was going through some old sketchbooks, just sort of looking and comparing where I was a year or so ago and where I am now, and I came across my Gate Guardian picture. Well, lazy me, hadn't done ANYTHING with the picture after I had posted it, despite having had plans to write a story for her, blah, blah, blah. Well, being cooped up b/c of bad weather and being grounded from all electronic devices, what was a girl supposed to do? Why, completely revamp her old pictures of course!!! So I sat down and several hours later, THIS lovely creature had been created!!! I am sooooooooo happy with how this one turned out. . . ESPECIALLY the hands!!!! This piece is a mixed media piece using black ink, coloured pencils, crayola markers, and. . . GASP!!!! IS THAT A BACKGROUND?!?!?! Yes it is, done on Photoshop 7 with one of the weird paint brush thingies!!!!
