FB ‘guess who’ round 1

In 2013 I want some more communication with my fans and followers. So on my facebook page I hold contests. At the moment it’s the simple ‘guess who‘ kind of contest. Guess who it is and receive a free sketch of choice. That one will be used for the next round. That way it keeps going. The winner will get the choice to get the sketch for real. I will ask for transport costs. The rest is free offcourse. If you want to enter then just follow my FB page: https://www.facebook.com/noangelhonestly

With a small 3 hours left, Tracy guessed it right! A huge congratz her way!! I’m curious who she’ll pick!


Present Delight

How happy were you with your presents? Some people real or fictional are just delighted when receiving something. Especially if it’s something related to a hobby or something you love. Winry from Fullmetal Alchemist would be thrilled to receive a wrench or some kind of tool right? So she became the inspiration for this one:

Now it is not finished yet. I’m still not happy with the eyes and the background. Thinking of adding some highlights maybe. What do you think?

I used regular sketching paper because it started as a sketch with a graphite pencil. But then I added the colour with those water colour pencils. To blend it a bit I used a brush and some water. It looks wethered and I like it. Almost like an old photo that has seen many times with greesy hands and lots of sunlight fading the details. But the tool looks off. Just realised that the way she holds it now, it looks bended. Not sure if it’s even useable then..

Any thoughts? I would appreciate some feedback here..
