Skye Kestrel Aloft

I love this character. Originally I just created her to be my everygirl protagonist, and I made her blonde to set her apart from my other main female character (whose hair is black), but over time, she evolved to resemble my best friend more and more. It's fitting. The last night we were together before she died, we stayed up late and I explained my whole story concept to her, everything I had so far. She loved it and told me to keep writing. Now that she's gone, looking back I realize how much she and Skye have in common (and I mean more than just the blonde hair, that was incidental.) It just seems right that I should model Skye after her, a sort of legacy to our friendship.

3.14.16 Edit:
I did some refinement of the color and added a proper background.

That's a cool idea to commemorate your friend with this character. She's a very beautiful character and seems very kind and loving. She seems like a free spirit too :)
