sketchbook 7: The President

Hello there :) 

Long time no see, :heart: I am behind everything right now, way too focused on Life and whatnots and not making enough time for sketching. (I did write, though but it's not an excuse). Anyway, I am finally coming back to sketching and the second successful attempt at it was this portrait :) 

This is one of the main characters of my novel. President Nëela Olusegun, former leader of a rebellion that took place just 10 years ago. One of the people who changed the face of History and a woman who has a LOT of enemies and opposing voices but also a lot of support and love from her people. She's a very just leader, and compassionate as well, which sometimes clashes a lot with the extreme views of some of her people. She's a very important character who, despite not being physically present in every scene, would have her shadow everywhere :p 

Anyway, I just wanted to have fun, so I did :) :heart:

Powerful and expressive face.  Can't go wrong with a strong black woman.
