I'm ready for summer! This is the first ~for me~ illustration I've done in quite awhile without using any direct reference. This illustration gave me the opportunity to use my new understanding of anatomy and color theory. Not perfect by any stretch, but it's my first real drawing with the tablet I bought myself for xmas. I will definitely be doing a lot more of these over the summer, so stay tuned! Done with GIMP for 1/2 of the line art before getting frustrated with the quality and continuing the piece in... Photoshop Elements. Need to get some better software, eh?
