Well, I actually did this in about five minutes last month, in a sketch book with an archival brush pen. I'm not too certain as to whether or not it's complete, but for now... we'll say it is.

As it is, I have had a sudden influx of commissions, and can't really work on anything of my own at this particular moment in time. :cat:

BlackOrchid. I like the distance this view offers.

If I had a crit it would be you could probably loose a couple lines on the sleeves and it would still look puffy but cleaner. pretty darn good for 5 minutes. I cant even think of a sketch in five minutes. Let alone with a brush pen.

You should post some of your coms when done.

Yeah... there are a couple of things I don't care for on this... but I see what you're saying about the arm. Maybe I'll try this again, only taking a *bit* longer with it. ;) I like the basic idea, and feel I should revisit this in a new piece.

Thanks for your input!

That's a wonderfully soft style. The fact that you can put it in so effortlessly in a quick sketch makes me want to see it used in a more elaborate picture! Good composition too with the hills providing a continuation of her flow.

marc ~ Thank you! I do want to use this same basic idea in a larger, more detailed composition. Haven't decided what medium yet, and anyway, I have other commissions to work on.... I'll post those as I finish them. Maybe some progress pics, too. I do need advice on a couple of them.
