Going to add a few more sketches the next couple of days, working on some different stuff, a collab a.s.o., but first some notes to this one.

Badumm-ts! I like to write that bold. Feels good. Like boobs. Yeah-mmh.
I tried to draw an original character again and my naga-ish little "mermaid" (turtleish horse ) Elesh won. Maybe because it was my hardest and most detailed work. Or my xenophilia. It's not a re-sketch to make it better, I wanted to change her. Like show different positions, style, look, you know .. like a woman changes every day. Almost.
My idea/inspiration for that work was simple: "a girl with a bun - every single girl changing her hairstyle". One day like this, other like that .. I tried to put that into this drawing and used her tail as an hair accessoire. That means she's wearing it like a bun. Or ponytail. Tailed ponytail. Fabulous. Yep.
So I had to remove her old naga-ish head and worked with shells and bones. Surreal mermaid style, or something like that. Holeeh crap, never try to say that word loud. I failed. Surreal mermaid, surreal mermaid, surreal ... I hate shells. Just like I hated flowers on my last drawing. Should never start drawing things I like.
It was an interesting experience to work on an already created character in a different way without losing it or my biggest fear: no similarity to the other drawing. To use the same eyes and features and still let her be her. This was definitely not the last time Elesh showed up here.
Now go-away. Go
