This piece was super fun to make! We were exploring sumi ink and mixed media techniques. I focused on exploring layering, mixing and texture. The subject here is a woman who I've drawn a lot since making this piece. I really enjoy portraying women with unconventional features (like big noses!) as beautiful. Everyone who wants to should be able to proudly see themselves in art.
