I drew this to trade a friend for her knitting me some arm warmers. I feel like I got the better side of the deal -- it wasn't until I was halfway through colouring this that I thought, "oh yeah, colour isn't really my forte." Damn. Oh well, she seemed to like it.



Sorry for the bad photo quality.

I think your colour shading on the lady worked out well with the bright background.  What mediums did you use for this one?
