Lady Cardinal by PinkParasol Lady Cardinal by PinkParasol
Happy New Year! I had hoped to complete this before the holidays, but I ended up putting it on hold to make my Christmas card. It started as an experiment with colored pencils and watercolor, but I kinda liked the direction so I decided to finish it as a full illustration. The paper texture was really harsh on my scan, so I added a soft focus in Photoshop, as well as some color correction.

Inspired by the photography of Nirrimi Hakanson

This is such a beautiful drawing! It's so realistic yet mysterious at the same time. I love the vines around the border. :)
