By the way, your art is awesome! Keep up he great art girl!

Quick Q before I go..

Is this digital or hand drawn? You don't have to reply if you don't want to.

Thanks very much!


I work primarily with traditional mediums, but do a little touch-up in Photoshop. I am an artist who enjoys getting her hands dirty. :D

Honestly, I two feel like I need 36 hour days lol.

Btw, keep up the amazing work! Your drawings are amzing!

I know, right? This 24-hour day nonsense has gone on too long! Ugh, and I have to spend a third of that *sleeping*. :giggle: Thanks for your kind compliments!
