It's with some reluctance that I upload this, since so many of my gallery comments are along the lines of 'phew, a realist, not another cartoon/anime-influenced artist!' But, well, I've got myself a graphics tablet, and am starting to play around with it, and this cartoony sort of style just came very easily. Eventually, maybe I'll work up to where I can do with the tablet what I can do with oils, but...hey, this was my first try at doing anything with it.
Anyway, this was my husband's Valentine's Day present. As with all of my characters, there's a story behind her. Something along the lines of...'Riiiiiisane...you don't have to put on the red light...' Heehee.
