Commission for :icongustredcloude:

This one kinda marks a turning point (huh, actually Stardust already did), where I start to get more experimental with faces and stuff... You can expect to see a lot more variation from now on, because Im trying new methods

Style wise I also tried a kind of traditional/watercolor approach here, just because my stuff lately has looked too digital and I missed this kind of drawing... I hope people like it anyway

The character itself was a lot of fun to draw... Shes "Cierra", an exiled witch, from the manga Orange Crows - [link]

It has some really great art with cool character designs, so do check it out, and :icongustredcloude: page as well, you wont be disappointed ^^ Ill probably end up drawing at least another character of his when I have the time, since I liked them so much

I think she needs more skull decors like in the OC. Was she going to smoke the 'King'?

The soft colours you used in this art are very much like your old painting styles. I hope you'll do more glamourous drawings like the Stardust one.

LOL, that should be fun

Its just like you said, I felt like doing something more traditional looking with this one since I missed it, but on all my drawings lately Ive been using a painting style similar to Stardust... It was a real game changer and my drawings have improved dramatically thanks to it, as you will see :lol:

Wonderful! She looks like a queen or a trickster, the checkered pattern makes her feel royal. Or maybe its stylish, but any way I really like it. This is a really nice character design, I really like her stylish outfit, it really matches her character. The rose adds a nice touch, this is really well done, nice job! Mmmm, there something about her I like but I can't quite describe it. But I guess that's because she looks really stylish!

Very nice!! I like how you out the skull on the collar, it looks classy (for her) in this dress and it keeps the sense of the original skull. I also like how you drew her hair and bandages, and this pose and outfit look perfect on her :) :D
