I had a pageviews contest (or 'kiriban' as many call it) on deviantart, and the winner was promised a fully shaded full body artwork of one of their characters, with a full background.
It's been so long since I've done anything of the sort I'd forgotten how long it takes!
The character belongs to kamirawolfdemon.deviantart.com - though was adopted from another dA member. So design credit goes to Kamira and to the person she adopted Easter from.
Aaaanyway. I didn't get a WIP of the sketch, because I wasn't sure I liked it until it was fully shaded. I'm trying out a new line-free style, working towards some more realistic stuff than my usual [I am very cartoonish, typically, as some of you may know].
