I had a lot of fun with this piece. I happened to find this sketch of my elven thief character, Robin, in a pile of papers while unpacking my new house and thought it ought to be scanned, but really didn't feel like doing a proper background for it. I've always liked sketches done in sepia, so I changed her color. Unfortunately, the original sketch was pretty smudged, so I used a filter in Photoshop 5.0 (I honestly don't remember which one) on the smudges and turned it blue. Blue and sepia look good together, I think. Then I added the blood in the background with the airbrush tool.
