Some Spontaneity

I was so bored of doing the same illustrations I've been doing for my portfolio. I've been so caught up in making a cohesive portfolio that I haven't had time to experiment and just have fun. Last night I did this drawing based off of a photo I took of my friend, Molly. I've been wanting to use my brush pen for the longest time now. I'm glad I did!
