As promised, this is dedicated to my dear friend and fan,
This is another little Athena doodle I did, fooling around with a few brushes. It was a result of my frustration from trying to learn a bunch of new methods and get familiar with new tools - I just decided to drop it all and draw something on the spot to de-stress. I kind of like the watery "paintish" style. I'm just trying to get a feel for lighting and stuff by practicing with rough sketches.
You can say this new picture is a sloppy redo of this: [link]
