...well, first illustration of the new year. I had to draw Mari because...she's my muse...and my mascot. ^_^ ...but, she sure took a heck of a lot of time to draw! ...not color...draw! I had to fuss over this pose quite a bit, but, I'm pretty happy with the results. ...and then...I had to color and I wanted to bring back an old method that I haven't used in a while, but that I thought would go well with this scene...hopefully add a little sultriness to the image.
...ah, but it's 1 hour 3 minutes until tomorrow and I'm a little beat. So, in short, I hope she looks alright...because I'm too sleepy to tell. LOL! ...yawns Alrighty! HAPPY NEW YEAR, EVERYONE!
