Cassie by LuisaPreissler Cassie by LuisaPreissler
It's so relaxing to finally paint something you're comfortable with! ;D Done after work. Still a bit sketchy and unfinished, but I like it.

It's my depiction of a character from a book I read recently. Now entered for the train your brain contest.

I just finished reading this book half an hour ago, having spent most of my day/night living in Cassie/Lexie's mind, and came online searching for her. 
And found her.

Not only is this a beautiful piece, it fits her perfectly. I can see both women in her face: scarred, dark, but determined detective, and flirty, mercurial student. I particularly like the light/dark contrast in her face, and on the same note, the contrast between her detailed face and sketchy-er hair/jacket. 

Intense and gorgeous. Thank you for bringing life to the character.

Thanks so much, this means a lot to me. :)
It's always a great challenge to bring a character down to paper the exact way you see it in your mind when reading a book. And that you too could imagine her looking like this makes me very happy! :)

She looks like a sweetie with a tough exterior.
