… and so I return after three days of living hell (also known as the flu) only to find over 200 messages in my bloody inbox.. That was a surprise.. a nice and scary surprise.. Thank you all for faves and comments :aww:

Alright, let’s get down to technicalities. This was done in ink, the paper is Arches 185g 50x76 cm (20x30in) .. I have apparently become one of those paper snobs.. I hate myself a little more now. Reference pic: [link]

I recorded myself painting this.. while sick.. don’t worry, I kept the camera of my snotty nose and puffy eyes..

UPDATE// *comes out of hiding* Oh wow, this was picked as a DD.. Just.. wow.. and the response from you guys has been amazing.. and again, a little terrifying for someone with social anxiety. Sorry for not responding to all of your comments, and thanking you for the favorites and follows, I have been feeling a little overwhelmed.. okay a lot.. but yeah.. just lots and lots of feelings right now.. THANK YOU !!!

This painting has been sold.. all proceeds went to the “help Mira move out of her parents basement foundation” :) If you want to contribute check out my etsy[link]

I thought it was the eleventh doctor at first, I was pretty confused. Aparently the two characters look very similar.
