Maria Grind and Yoki Safari

Hey folks!

Lately, I've been a little lacking in the updates realm, for which I apologize. I have been working on a freelance gig that has proven to be quite hefty in the workload department, and it has left basically no time for drawing the things that I want to draw. That is the way it works, I guess.

But! I have a concept sketch for a character from "The Duncan Button." Her name is Maria Grind, and she is Ridley Duncan's good friend (and love interest).

She is an avid RPG fan, hence the last name, and a bit of a Japanophile, but has a good head on her shoulders. This was drawn a little while ago, dunno why it took me so long to get it online. There are a couple things I can see right now that I want to change about the design, but such is the nature of an initial concept sketch.

Also, did a sketch of Yoki Safari, trying to nail down the look I want for her, getting very close:

And what's that? The return of the swirly swoosh in her hair? Le gasp! Only time will tell if it stays...

Anyway, I should be back to drawing regularly again in a week or two, and again, I apologize for the silence.

Take care, folks!
