Lydia - Ski Haus Cafe by Omar-Dogan Lydia - Ski Haus Cafe by Omar-Dogan
If you guys have my book Girl7 , you'll recognize this one straight away. This is Lydia Elizabeth Abbington, the most disliked character of the book in an affectionate sort of way, an she is sipping and snootty sweet 'coffee' drink. The BG was a ski lodge of sorts, but i ditched it since i liked her silhouette/pose on its own. She's pretty tall, 180 cm if I remember right.

Many a time I like my work much better without colour altogether barring a few hints towards a sepia hue. This is an old style for me, and for a while I ventured into more realistic territory.

Of course realism has an application, but there is a certain charm with this sort of work that I guess i haven't been able to instill in my other work. I guess since realism all stems from basically the same place it puts everyone who does it in the same point of view, whereas when you have the universe in your imagination , even if you don';t draw well, it can only emanate from you. Quite an intimate experience compared with the the other approach.

I know this track listed below (if it still works) is known by my fans to be a 5C tune, but it works with this one as well.

I think sumtimes people wonder "it's so sunny, how am I to get out of this intense heat?"
Not so with this piece - the shading is wonderful
