We Are Men Of Honor (pt. 1)

...And like such, we always keep our word. On my honor, I shall never break my word to draw people as I see fit (...even if it takes a few weeks for me to completely fulfill my word...!) Ó A Ò

...That being said, and before you start thinking of me as a crack-brained sire...! What I meant by these lines was to simply clarify: I always fulfill my word! That is, I STILL have in mind I owe some people artwork (I only ask you to be patient, for University and work have proven to be a lethal combination) but I am working on keeping up with the drawings I have to get done before I expire from this 'ere world!

Yes? So, according to the above statement, here is one of the many portraits I had promised to do:

Let me introduce you to Miss M.:

She is the mind behind the Creature of the Night tumblr (which is filled with beautiful gore imagery (I warn you in advance, in case you dislike gore)); a blog I enjoy visiting, even though I have no tumblr account...! She shows a lot of charisma, as well as some very interesting ideas... now, add the fact that she is incredibly gorgeous, and you've got the recipe for success! Or, in this case, Gorgeousity * w *)/

Now, let's get technical, shall we?

Technique: Hand drawing and black ink using Uniball micro Deluxe in 0.5. Everything was hand-colored using Prismacolor Professional colors. The snakes, as well as the flowers, were digitally added using Photoshop.

I really liked drawing Miss M. although, I must say it was a challenge trying to portray her delicate features accurately, she has some unique features, so it was quite difficult trying to draw her while maintaining her essence. Also, I had never drawn facial piercings before! So it worried me on how things would turn out in the end ; A ; On a brighter note, I really, and I mean REALLY liked drawing her lips! It was interesting trying to portray the femininity and delicacy to her lips on my drawing, but I think I made a nice job in the end c:

So, this was Miss M....Pretty, right? Okay, until next time (or drawing)! Cheers!
