Here is a sketch of a big eyed gothic maiden. I think I may have finally found the face for my Dia de los Muertos / Day of the Dead femme with monarch butterflies... Here she has flowers in her hair, but if I decide to use her, when I redraw her, they may or may not be there. I think in this iteration she is most likely a fairy angel, although she could also be a mermaid or a goddess.
I've decided to try and do a sketch a day in August. This is day 14.
This is a rough sketch. You may see some of my finished paintings at lisarusso.com if you'd like.
