This drawing is done on one of my favorite paper surfaces, Borden and Riley Parchment paper, heavy weight. It's a thick trace paper with a marvelous and forgiving tooth. It can take a lot of abuse, erasing, redrawing, erasing, redrawing. I've also tweaked the face just a wee bit in PS.
Kudos to a website that I just love, love, love and now can't work without finding powerful references: Pinterest! This design is greatly influenced by Nouveau jewelry and architecture.

Happy Mom's Day:
A few rare hours left to myself. Both beloved parents have succumbed to cancer, my brothers live elsewhere, I am trying to finish up with my divorce and have separated myself from the other half's family. This leaves me in the unique position of being left alone during all holidays. (My daughter is usually with her dad on weekends and holidays). I am so lucky no one came knocking on my door as I just relished my madness of solitude and hid from anyone in sight. Listening to music, sketching, designing, resizing, life gets no better~
This is the next concept drawing for Sprites of the Forest, tenatively Shoten Zenjin 2. Stay tuned as I nail down the next tight drawings for this.
