notes: This artwork was developed completely from initial sketch to final art on this one sheet of paper and therefor has it's traces. Although the drawing is perfect everywhere, the paper itself is not 'mint' overall, it has damaged layers in the facial area and very slightly left elbow area because of inking-corrections while designing. (This is notable mostly when pointing a single side way spot-light on that area)
