Character study I completed to present to my portfolio class at USU. The image I used as reference was this fantastic work of cosplay, gotta give her props: [link]
About 4 hours with a Wacom Intuos4 + Photoshop CS6.
This is an updated version. After discussing with my illustration class, I cleaned up some lines, moved a few elements of the composition, added highlights to her hair, etc. I feel it's a much stronger piece now.
