Elizabesque Hottie

I've always loved the pictures of beautiful women made by great concept artists and fantasy artists, so full of texture and costume design. I've always wanted to be able to draw like that but always ended up falling back on my cartoony habits. The cure? Quick drawings on toothy paper with a stumpy, blade-sharpened pencil. Added some tone and texture in photoshop with some cool brushes I found.

I also needed to let go of any concern about historical accuracy, so this outfit is just made up by my uneducated random ideas of what an ornate Elizabethan outfit might look like. History buffs can laugh and point all they want;-).
