I love pencil. Don't get me wrong, my drawing tablet is a lot of fun, but pencil will always be my first love. I'm confident drawing in pencil. I feel like I can do things I can't in other mediums. I like the sketchy look in general. Simple, soft, raw.
Anyway, this is for Cindy Pon! She recently won 3rd place in my Bring On The Funny contest. Cindy, I hope you're squealing right now:) I'm so happy with how it turned out. It was a great excuse to try my hand at your characters again.
This is Ai Ling and Chen Yong from her novel Silver Phoenix and the upcoming sequel Fury of the Phoenix. I really enjoyed her book and look forward to the next. If you're an Asian fantasy fan in particular, you'll probably enjoy these. The first had such an old folklore feel. Very cool.
