I really enjoy working on toned paper; it is nice to not have white as a base, because then it can be used as a strong highlight. The portrait above is just a sketch I did this past semester while at art club. Little stars surround her and she begins to become one with the sky

I think it is important to take advantage of time I have during this summer, and still enjoy it of course!
This character is done on a nice grey toned paper. After a pencil sketch I inked her with fine tip pens and then used a black colored pencil to shade her face and used the wonderful tool sharpie paint extra fine point white pen to add the highlights.
|She is meant to look fierce and stormy|
I like the character just in grey-tone so I photographed her at this stage before adding purple hair
A different version from photoshop, as is the figure at the top with mermaid sea-green hair
