Free Spirit

This character looks to me like a free spirited girl. Perhaps she is a traveller, a nomad with no fixed abode, living life one day at a time. Maybe she’s a Yoga teacher or an artist? Definitely something creative about her I can’t put my finger on…

A Darker Side

I drew this last night (early hours of this morning). I wasn’t feeling very happy and it came out in the dark look of this rather androgynous character. It started out with an oval shaped face and I wanted feminine eyes but from there it kind of of felt more like a man, a boy with high cheekbones.  So from that moment I was thinking male.

The black jumper and red background reveal my mood at the time. Rest of the background is very rough but I thought I’d leave it in as it sort of felt like it was fitting to have an unfinished background (and it was easier to leave it!).
