This started out from a picture that I saw and liked on We <3 It. So I sketched it out on my nice new mixed media paper, but then I couldn't decide how I wanted to color it and I only had one chance to get it right, so I figured I'd photoshop it first.
Four days later, I now have this, and I don't even know if I want to color the original. Ha!
Ref picture was used. Textures from cgtextures.com. Everything else belongs to me.
