An experiment in digital painting. I'm really happy with how it came out!
I wanted to do an animal.. they're easier to paint, so I did my fursona, since I have like.. no finished pictures of her XD
I browsed Webshots for ideas for the background, the photo I looked at didn't have the bushes, but I think they look good here.
Painted in OpenCanvas 1.1! But I adjusted it and added some texturey stuff in Paint Shop Pro. It's amazing how much better it looks.
