I drew this to have something to show my students when I'm going to teach them about photoshop and drawings. I was told that manga and anime type characters were very, very popular among the school's students, so I figured I'd try learning the style.
Drew this without any reference whatsoever. I usually don't use references when I draw, unless I can't figure out how to draw that thing on my own, then I might Google similar stuff as reference - but I never trace my references whenever I use one though. I'm not gonna babble an awful lot about this, so I'll stop now.
But I hope you guys like this drawing :3
And if she resembles anyone, living or fictional, then that's totally coincidental.
