Cover for my 2nd art book Toccata 2, it's supposed to match Toccata 1's cover, but the way I draw/paint changed a lot so there's not much of a match beyond composition XD I spent an eternity on this picture because I was forced to stop working on it multiple times for months at a time, it was really frustrating and disconnected me a lot from the original sketch that I was happy with ): better luck next time!

Follow me elsewhere:

Star! Star! My newest art book, which this was the cover for, is available for preorder at Star! Star!

Even though I haven't read Carciphona yet (and I really want to ; o ; ), Blackbird has to be my favorite character in the series! :heart:
You drew her beautifully, and well as badass with her pose and the cloth she is holding with her teeth, and with that little smirk she has on.
I envy how you draw so much; I really wish I could be like you and my other idols someday ; u ;

It's a really beautiful illustration of Blackbird! :love: But I understand, when you're sketching something and you love the sketch, but when you finalize it and 'ink it in' so to say, you're not satisfied with it.
Sometimes I just leave sketches as sketches, because I like the look so much and I don't want to distort it.
