I'm not sure if you could tell but her face is pale yellow, being the underside of a paper that had marker ink bled through. This technique of drawing something heavily in marker then going over the back side of the paper with new lines done in pen or india I just began experimenting with during my senior year. It's a fun way to make a creative solution out of all those annoying bleedthru marker pages that waste your notebook paper.

Same process was used here:

Old Sketchbook

Sketches of a creature concept of mine called 'daggerbreed' that I really want to see used on a Magic:The Gathering card or the likes of someday. I loved these guys after having a nightmare about a bunch of them running wild on some kind of barbaric battlefield planet, where the only inhabitants were just discarded machines killing each other for supremacy. I dunno if the planet was once inhabited by a wiped out race of human beings or some other organic civilization, or if it was always a dead one from the start and they were just put there. Or built themselves from the ground up. Who knows?? Perhaps I will do an art book about them and all the other crazy mechanical creatures that are running amok up there.
