As I continue my quest to improve my drawing skills, I decided it would be fun to draw a new and revised picture of Gretchen, an original character I created some years back. She looks a heck of a lot better, as do my attempts at coloring hair and eyes. Below is the character description I included on Deviant Art.
“Gretchen is an OC I created years ago after I had a dream about a dragon woman with blue hair. She is pretty goofy and thinks canned food is a miracle substance due to how long it stays preserved (years ago, I was writing a comic involving a post-apocalyptic world, in which she was a supporting character). She’s also a bit crazy and enjoys laughing at bad jokes. If she’s angered, however, she’s not to be trifled with. Being a reptile, she’s pretty darn tough when provoked, even if it takes a lot to make her mad, due to how oblivious she tends to be.”
Below you can see a comparison between my new version of Gretchen and the old one, which I drew, ironically, ten years ago back in 2009. How convenient! It’s good to see that I’ve made vast improvements since then…and I wasn’t even drawing all that much between then and now!
As a side note, Gretchen is property of the Duck of Indeed. Of course.
