35min speed-draw

reffed from a screenshot near the end of Season 1, Rising, pt 2 which I was re-watching this evening... one of my weaknesses as an artist is how long I always take on everything. Often I think my level of detail is a good pay-off, but I need to know how to draw faster if necessary - so I decided to make tonight’s piece a timed drawing and see whether I could make something good which looked somewhat like the character desired without taking the kind of time I wanted for her.

    Nice job with the facial structure, and the strokes you use give the piece an interesting effect.

      Thanks. ^_^
      Facial structure's another thing I need to work on more consistently, so counting that as a bit of a victory.
