Clearly a WIP :D

Its been a while since I've done anything artsy, so I decided to draw my bestest lil friend. Done freehand looking at the original picture on my screen - so it's by no means a perfect replication. Done with markers and a dab or water here and there to let them bleed a bit. As the title states, this is obviously a WIP. Really a spur of the moment project.





Colors are truer, the picture was taken with my webcam that's got a flash that washes everything out ^^

Thank you all so much for your lovely comments! :)


Here's my first critic so far, haha. "These are such poor quality scales. Mine look nothing like that!"
