I haven't done this type of drawing in years. It's a "classic" graphite pencil drawing (size 50x40) of a TV character - Wynonna Earp.

Wynonna Earp is a Canadian supernatural western TV show based on a comic book series. It's fun, smart and sassy, action packed, inclusive and female driven. So here is my tribute to the badass main character played by Melanie Scrofano.

I haven't had time to do any realistic drawings due to some unforseen cicumstances, work and well, a crazy life in general.

But I did some new designs and sketches of a different kind which resulted in a new crazy badass unicorn t-shirt shop. For all those crazy adorable people out there :)

Another experimental drawing. Although I'm not really happy with the outcome it was a huge learning experience and all upcoming drawings will be better because of it.
