Zoey Redbird belongs to PC & Kristin Cast in The House of Night novel series. [link]
Made it in Photoshop CS5
Now, before you say anything, I just want you to know that I'm an absolute beginner in "Digital Painting" & I know this probably has many many mistakes, BUT I GOTTA SAY: I'M ABSOLOUTLY IN LOVE WITH DIGITAL PAINTING
The first (& only) time I've ever drawn in Photoshop was back in 2008 [link]
and I failed miserably! I think partially because I used a mouse to draw it?
But now I have a touchscreen laptop with its own pen & a little experience in traditional art, so I think I've improved a little.
These tutorials and references helped a lot:

Color swatches: [link]

I'm using a trial version of Photoshop, & if dad doesn't buy it for me.. I'm seriously screwed.
So.. Tell me what you think?! --Please let it be good--
