AMY cosplaying TOUKO HILDA
This drawing took me beyond my skill level at the time, but somehow I manage to survive lol This was my first ever A3 drawing, and the first full body drawing I’d done in ages, so I was totally out of my comfort zone. It ended up taking about 30 hours in total, I just kept hitting problems but I was determined to finish it! I’m so proud that I didn’t give up and I really learnt so much. A3 is so different to work with, that shocked me the most.

“Who are you?
Are you in touch with all of your darkest fantasies?
Have you created a life for yourself where you can experience them?
I have. I am fucking crazy.
But I am free.” – Lana Del Rey
“As an aquatic animal, the otter is a symbol of life. Why? Because the prime symbolic meaning of water deals with the divine feminine, which is a major life-giving energy. Water (and otters) are symbolic of creativity, fluidity and transitions.”
“Art enables us to find ourselves and lose ourselves at the same time.”
