.: Astrid :.

I really enjoyed working on this ;_;.

Sometimes I get a little sick of things like lineart and trying to perfect everything. So it was a breath of fresh air to just jump straight in with a brush and enjoy painting :3

and I did. 8D Anyway, this is a character I've had floating around in my head for a very long time. She's always changing so I decided to try and pin down her look a little more. Anyway, this was super enjoyable and I'll definitely be doing more of these in the future.

Enjoy ;D

It's the flow of shades and the intensity in her eyes which make this great

Hey! My name is Astrid! I don't look like her, but still :D I really enjoy your work, it's be-a-u-tiful!

She's so beautiful! I love this character. Her expression in this drawing is so fierce and intense. She seems like a very dynamic person. I know someone who looks exactly like her! Ahaha. I am just wondering...why is the little freckle above her upper lip sometimes on the left side and sometimes on the right? Curious. Anyways, so beautiful! :love: :squee:

what sort of brush did you use for this? Do you remeber? I love the texture, although it looks like the brush itself didnt have much texture.
