this kind of looks like a mix between Heather Mason and what I imagine Holly Short to look like.
It's a very cool piece.

I love your style. Exquisite details.
I really enjoy how she turns more and more polished towards the centre.

Wow so nice. I'm very new to digital art, you saying messy and plenty of mistakes has now shattered my confidence:)
Such beautiful portraits in all. Nice placement on the 2.20girl.

Her face has a subtle freckly texture that gives her a curtain innocence. If all the other Astrid pictures had that look....I would be reeeallly happy.

Astrid connoisseur forever,

Not sure if someone else has mentioned this, but where is the necklace with the two rings she always wears?

Other than that I love the texture of this, if it was traditional i would want to run my hands over it... Mmm texture.

No, no one else has mentioned it. Someone's been paying attention! LOL.

She just doesn't have them at this point. I tend to go back and forth when I paint her ;p

Thank you :3

You're welcome... it comes with having to keep a couple dozen characters straight when writing a book, although i have a nagging feeling one of my characters eyes keep changing colour >_<

Although i canot recall if you've given her a full backstory yet?

Right time for a bath before I go to work, eugh i still feel a bit drunk from last night, never a good thing, roll on Heart-attack Sammiche Club.... mmmmm sammiches

lol ;D you need to pick a colour then!

She has a full back story. But I suck at writing so I haven't put up much about her.

luciferous Featured By Owner Jun 28, 2009  Hobbyist Digital Artist
That I shall, going by the original character descriptions she should have light blue...

If you ever want or need a hand in putting Astrid's story into 'non-sucking' I would love to help, i need distractions from my own work every so often or i go crazy and start questioning my own decisions.
