Card - marker portrait

Well, this was a "I need to do something different and actually skillful" after all the upheaval of moving and traveling right after for work (which is super tiring, 2/10 do not recommend doing back to back work trips right after moving into a place)

So I decided to do a favourite character of mine in a media I havent had in 3! Years. And I have to say looking back, my technique has definitely improved, which is definitely motivating. Theres some things I see that arent eight, but as it was a relaxing, after work if it's not too hot and I don't have a ton of things to do, project, I am satisfied. :)

If you want to see my last realistic piece in marker to compare, it's right here:…

Your style with traditional media is truly amazing!
The shading is just perfect; especially the tail and the mane :heart:

It's a real pleasure to look at!
