Gave an old DA2 playthrough a short visit today. I missed Tessa; my beautiful, gentle looking ball of bloody mayhem and sarcasm. She pulls Fenris out of his broodiness by his ear.
Also, missed the simplicity of watercolours and lines after attempting to draw her “like others” – detailed and 3D and awesome and generally in a way that is totally out of my hand. I became very frustrated, and deleted the three hours worth of work nearly in tears.
Redrew in digital ink and watercolour, with ease and actually happy with the result.
I really have to let go of trying to draw in styles I admire, and instead draw as I feel.
