Jodi - full portrait

Well, it's still just a sketch, but this is the full portrait.

Pencil on cardstock seemed like a good idea at first, but the surface ended up being far too smooth for the deep textured look that I prefer in portraits. I am looking forward to getting some good Stonehenge and trying again.
This is Jodi. She is someone who has inspired me to work hard at becoming strong, and to begin to find my way past the safe and conservative social limits I have always placed on myself. I respect her a great deal :).

I am determined to get this one right ...

Alecia Moore - a sketch

I have recently discovered P!nk.
I love her music and her attitude.

This is a sketch from my sketchbook. It is done with pen and marker, just like the previous portrait :).
