What It Takes to Be Strong by nakanoart What It Takes to Be Strong by nakanoart
Every battle leaves a scar. Never give up your fight.

I wanted to draw Leona again, since I don't have as many drawings of her uploaded as I do Taylor. She's my fighter girl character/muse haha.

Those are some big bandages.... or can bandages be really big?...... That was dumb question. -_-

Ive actually seem some really huge ones in the store xD Though I made them unnaturally large because the idea is more of a metaphor for hurt, rather than a tangible wound (I hope that made sense lol).

That big ass band-aid.  I actually just barked out laughing

Really like your slight watermark effect.  What program/method do you use to get that?

I use pencil and Photoshop, but if you are in the market, I recommend Manga Studio 5.

Yeah, she does seem like the fighting type. It also seems that she gets attacked at the chest the most, judging by that huge band-aid! 
But I get what the band-aid is suppose to mean. :bandaidla:
