Sweet Carolina Girl by Aprodite Sweet Carolina Girl by Aprodite
Part two of my North Carolina OC project. :)

First we had Amaury representing the mountains, and now we have Cayran representing the foothills.

The foothills (which is where I live) borders the mountain base, and consists of smaller mountains and rolling hills. Instead of large food producing farms, the foothills contain bulk animal farms, such as cattle, horses, chicken houses, and goats. Everywhere you turn you pass a pasture, and we have an abundant supply of hay.

Anyway, I am rather pleased with this. Although I didn't shade her as much as I did Amaury, I like the simplicity of it.

Also, can anyone guess what type of flower Cayran is holding? If you guessed dogwood, you are correct. The dogwood tree is North Carolina's state tree. :D

Enjoy!

I wouldn't doubt it. Poses just aren't original anymore. Anyway though, I was inspired by another artist (follow the link) and he/she might have used the pose you were talking about.

Aaaaah, you are soooo much more country than me! I may live in the South, but its in the cushy little suburbs, no barns in sight!

Her face is gorgeous, it gets your attention right away, and her eyes are just captivating! Love the windswept hair, very carelessly sexy <3

Haha, it is just my county, I swear!

Thanks again babe. Windswept hair is always difficult for me, but thankfully I prevailed this time. :D

Fabulous!! The character and the background go together so well. It almost looks like a fashion photo-shoot in a magazine. I love the flow of Cayran's hair. It's wonderful and makes her even more gorgeous. :love:

I feel in love with the background when I found it, and seeing that I HATE drawing backgrounds, I decided to use it.

I like how her hair turned out as well; it kinda started off as an experiment, but I liked it.

I just had to put her in the foothills. I thought of August for a moment, but Cay of course fit the area better.
