Beach by StressedJenny Beach by StressedJenny
I started this a while ago when the country was consumed by snow. It was a little depressing so I drew this as a pick me up.
I kept thinking about an island I visited called Ko Pang Yang as I was drawing this. It was so beautiful! I wish I was back there.

Heh, we do just the opposite; it doesn't snow much down here so we head up to Mt. Rainier (4400 meters high) to toss a few snowballs.  But yeah, it can get dreary here in the Pacific Northwet, and I sometimes wish I was on the east coast of Florida soaking up some sunshine like she's doing.  Albeit with a lot of sunblock...

I wish I could be some place like that. I've never been to a beach before... I don't think I'd really care to be at a crowded one like I imagine most local beaches are, but a more private beach; that's something I think I could deffinitely enjoy!

I especially love the colors, her hair, pose, and facial expression in this piece. ^^

Good idea to draw the tropical fr4olics to beat the winter blues, here in Toronto its mostly dry cold with a light dusting so its not even interesting. Hey you can always go back to Ko Pang Kabang with Google Earth, bask in some ground level photos if you can find them.

The details are what really make this picture for me. Her necklace has intricacies along with her bracelet, belt, freckles and hair (as per usual :P). Then someone else mentioned the background, which was so well done that I hardly even noticed it.

:D I like to actually LOOK at art, but sometimes it helps when other people point stuff out top (like the background). I also have a question: how long does it take you to make such wonderful stuff?

Oooh, well this once would have taken about 3 hours all together. About 30 mins to sketch out neatly and then the rest of the time would be taken up with inking colouring and shading. On average it takes about 2 hours to do a fully coloured pic.
