Started sketching this on a whim during art class today. It’s very much a work un progress; I still have a few adjustments to make. I want to finish the sketch version but also do a copy and then colour it with my markers when I get back to Toronto.
Apologies for the awkward angles and awful rigidity. I’ve decided I might take up drawing when I get back, because I’ll need something else to do.
Depending on how much I like the finished version, I may or may not post it.
