ok...not as fast or talented as you guys so
2h15 in photoshop
used some photo refs from pin ups and stuff like that to get the pose and face
the dress is quite unfinished

daw super cool use of lines and the character is sweet
DanBroughton very beautiful and she reminds me of Ani DiFranco. Is it a coincidence?
MichaelZHsee I would rather call it a forest spirit. Awesome technics but!!! the face looks alike even with the one on your userpic. Try give 'em more personality
Splinter a transparent plant? Also the right arm is too high.
joojy Try focus on a single aspect of a drawing and master it. Some books maybe...

10 minutes, colors ds. just doodling for myself

I must admit that this one stalled me for several days. I really have no idea how to redesign something. Eventually I just bit the bullet and started to draw. I think she's come out looking a bit like a commando-type eco-terrorist. Though, to be fair, that red hair had got to be a pain when trying to blend into the background. :rolleyes:

I like these short time limits, even though I can't do anything cool that fast yet. 'Tis good exercise.

20min, PSCS3, Tablet
