Finished commission for Victoria, from Thursday's on demand stream! I got pretty carried away in a good way with this one, and part way through I realized why I liked the concept so much. I did a drawing around 2003 to 2005 of a female canine character in a red skirt twirling, and I remember really liking the drawing at the time. It's fun to revisit old concepts, even when it happens subconsciously. Credit for the title for this one goes to Silana, thanks for the great title idea!

      Awesome, I wish I had it online somewhere still! It was weird realizing why I gravitated towards this theme, but then cool to see the old drawing. =D

        I may or may not have it saved somewhere. I hope that's okay? I tend to save tons of peoples' art for inspiration and such.
