I've been doing this long enough now that I recognize a pretty consistent pattern in myself. I'll have three or four days of good drawing where I'm feeling really into it and creative... and then for two or three (or more) days after that I'm totally useless and it takes all my energy to get something accomplished.
So here's my continued attempt at Merida from Brave (as requested by a coworker). It's no walk in the park to draw curly hair, either. I'm allowed to say that because I have more than enough of it myself.
I realize her head/face is too big... I've still got to work on that part.
