Illustration Friday-FADED Goth Girl Illustration

After a LONG break, I've decided to get back on doing illustrations for Illustration Friday. And posting to my blogsite more too. I can't believe it's been so long un-updated!

This week's theme is 'Faded.'  My initial thought was to do something with with a ghost. I have a ghost character that I've sketched out a while back for an upcoming children's picture book I am working on writing/illustrating.  That would be perfect. 

Of course, I couldn't find the file when I started working on the illo last friday. So I decided to do something new. My next thought was to make a more human-like ghost character, but ultimately I decided to go with a goth-style girl. (I need way more practice doing human characters, anyway.)

I am quite please with how it turned out. She's shy, yet, bold and creative. Wants to fade into the background yet wants to be seen.

Hope you enjoy the illustration.
