I am drawing almost every weekday now but today I decided to use my free time to create a few blog posts I can schedule for the coming days.

This illustration is based on my online and offline friend, Ana Maria of Life ‘N Loops. This is not the first time I illustrated her but the first illustration of her also does not look like her.  This is what I always point out when I post a new illustration: I don’t aim my characters to look like the one I am basing my illustration on. What I try to get is the mood, the attitude, and of course the clothes. Copying the face is beyond my skill and maybe someday I can improve my skills and do it but I still have a looooooong way to go.
