I've now babbled a lot about what feelings etc. this portrait evoked in me- it would be far more interesting to know what you thought while doing it? Any particular things you were aiming for?


Since this is a classic portrait, I just wanted to bring out her personality. I´m a big fan of amazones and of Kahvi as well. I always loved her intense green eyes with thick brows. When drawing, I wanted her to look a little dangerous but not angry. I gave her that little (self-ironic) smile to make her look both, derisive and a little bitter. She looks strong willed, but also a little tormented. Maybe because she´s always on the run, driven by her desires that are never fullfilled, and often get herself into trouble because of stubbornness. Maybe she got some of her scars that way. But she´ll never learn from them (like Cutter), she rather wears them with a little pride.
I still cannot believe she´s dead. Q_Q
