This is a close up (detail-like) shot of the pastel and colored pencil drawing I did of Nyla, Aedammair's mother. The whole drawing was a bit of an experiment because the original sketch was done in green and brown colored pencils--unusually light. I was really really close to uploading the full picture because her dress makes a really neat frilly translucent mermaid tail-like ruffle, but the image is quite tall and that reduced all of the detail of her sly, seductive face. (I'm much more proud of that face.) If you're interested, the full picture can be found here. (Click if you like. I think I did a decent job on her hands and the kinna velvety texture of her dress.) There's no date on the drawing--it should say 03/24/03. Mechanical pencil, colored pencil, and pastels on typing paper.
