Dude, she looks like she could freakin' kick my ass. D: I seriously love the expressions you put on each character's face. It really shows the personality, and make it shine in a different light that you don't usually see in other art. It doesn't look detatched. It looks as though you, yourself, were feeling the emotions this character felt, when you were drawing her. Lovely. <333
Yeah, I have a whole folder of scanned patterns, I buy these scrapbooking pattern blocks and scan the designs...then i lose the blocks in my room DDx
lol i have another set to scan soon. These are from a about fairytales so they have a lot of scroll type textures, and then i overlay or 'soft light' the layer so it mixes nicely with the colours and adjust opacity.
It's really simple but looks well. If you're interested i'll put a few in my scraps.
