My favorite character from Sword Art Online. I had actually wanted to draw her since the first time I watch the anime, but life happened and I lost the motivation to continue the original sketches, and looking back, it kind of sucks too. It's only after I watched the last movie with my friends that I regain the feelz to redraw although Sinon only have limited screen time.
