The fully colored Wood-Woman picture. This took me... only God knows how long. After hours of gibbering madly and erasing and sobbing, I managed to finish all the shading on her roots. I think I'm going to have nightmares about green and brown pencils until I'm thirty. I finished it, though my right hand will never forgive me. Ever. And the scanner hates me.

Still, drawing it was good fun, I think it turned out quite nicely, though I rather prefer the line drawing.

That’s some very nice colouring. You should do some more coloured works.

:-) Sarah Charles replies: "Thanks! I actually have a few that I need to upload, I’m just VERY picky about which ones I put on display."

:-) Sarah Charles replies: "Thank you so much! Hmmm... shrivel and fall off... that’s exactly it! "

This is a wonderful picture full of life 2. I love all the swirling stuff: the roots, her hair, and beautiful leaves. The colours are gorgeous, and I can see that you have spent a lot of time making the strokes smooth and nice. The result is lovely, and it’s very pleasant to the eye 11. Great job!

:-) Sarah Charles replies: "Thank you so much!"
