This is one of the female characters from my story that i have not had any time to work on. These type of exercises help me keep the initiative up, but paying jobs take front seat till I can afford to say no.
This one was done from start to finish in CS4 and was a pleasure to work on, she's the same girl in this pic with her work hat on.
PETRO - COB is a rip on Petro Canada which as the name inplies is a gas station. I replaced the maple leaf with a palm tree since most of their fuel is derived from the palm farms. COB is for Cobter which is the island that they live on.
She has a sort of rough beauty and is a bit of a punk. The pic itself is more a study and effort for me to clean up my digital skills and refine my method more.
Between the Girl 7 book and the normal run of work, conventions, teaching, commuting and family, there is not much time and energy left at the end of the day, but my heart is still there and I will keep hope alive!
