Anyway, since the Daytona 500 was postponed to last night, my evening was filled with the TV blaring the roar of cars, well...driving in circles. (I do not, and doubt I ever will, understand the appeal of that. But my husband does, hence the TV. Sigh.)
Because I could not concentrate on writing, even with massive headphones on (projecting a not-quite-comparable-to-the-cars blare of music), I decided to draw. This is the (unfinished) result:
She's based on a photo of a girl I took at the Sarasota Medieval Fair a little over a year ago:
So, yes, I know mine is different. I didn't tackle the glasses, and changed some details. But I had fun drawing it. I felt like a dork asking this girl if I could take her picture, but I just loved her costume--does she not look adorable? I sure hope she's okay with me posting it. If you are ever at a Medieval Fair and see her, go buy something at her vendor booth so she doesn't get mad at me :).
I'm not sure if I'll finish off this drawing or start a new one that's not so animationy.
And maybe I'll turn her into a character in my book....
