Finally finished! This is my half of a "sketch" trade with *CircuitDruid. She asked me to draw her awesome character, Axkara.

Anyway, I was only going to make a pencil sketch for my half, but *CircuitDruid showed me an awesome WIP of her half and I felt bad just giving her an uncolored sketch so I added some quick colors. I don't know about you guys, but I certainly like this quicker coloring style since it helps me learn how to quickly block in colors AND it lets me finish more pictures. I might even use this style again in the future.

Hope you like it!

The coloring looks great without it feeling rushed or with that speed-paint feeling (some speed-paints are amazing, but others, you can definitely tell it was a SPEED paint). There is still plenty of texture to keep the image interesting to look at. Great job with the interesting character's anatomy! :D

Thank you very much! I've always kind of loved loose speedpaints myself (since I can't paint loosely at all) but speedpaints that are nice and refined are always more amazing to me.
