Something that... isn't... uni work...?

Apparently I'm still occasionally capable of drawing things just for the sake of drawing them. It's very liberating and I really wish I did it more often, but usually it makes me feel guilty...

Rachel's been preparing work for her portfolio over the past week or two and today she decided to do some painting. She had a nice reference picture she'd found on the internet of a girl sitting in an autumnal forest and since I was sitting next to her (Rachel, not the girl in the forest) I found myself sketching the girl's face. It turned into me trying to work the copic markers and this is the final result. I've tweaked it in Photoshop slightly because I think when I scanned it the colours came out kinda faded, but then again it might just be my laptop screen. Let me know if it's too bright, or any other criticisms really. Really need to improve.

Also need to update this blog more often...
