Day 10 of the Digital Sketch Challenge! and I’m back to my original characters!

This is Roxy. I drew her before, around Day…8, I think? I can’t remember. I’m bad at that.

I wanted her to pose in a way that reflected her as a character, and she IS a strong, independent woman…who has “DFTBA” tattooed on her arm (Ok, part of the reason I did this pose was to show off the tattoo a little). It stands for “Don’t Forget to be Awesome”, and is the catchphrase/creed of Nerdfighters. If you don’t know who they are, go and google it because I don’t believe you.

I’m currently working with her on a short story, and I love how she’s developing! She’s turning out to be very thoughtful and very mature, especially around the topic of death (well, she would have to be, since she had cancer).

However, I hope that my next sketches will have more dynamic poses for my characters. I’m not sure if I want to start drawing full-on action yet, but I’d like to get them slightly more active and…asymmetrical.
