This is Bara, my pretty little girl, Bara. If you don't know, I am working on a graphic novel called "Choco Ichigo" that is about 4 girls who turn into dolls with magical powers! This is one of the 4 dolls that I have done. Her name is Bara, in her human form she is Yuuki! Bara has the ability to manifest any kind of flower, her specialty is roses. So she has a little rose in her hand. I was haven't such a hard time what I wanted to do with her eyes and clothing, I didn't know what color to do. Back when I was 14, her reference image that I found on Google was an anime girl with white hair and red eyes. That is so common in anime and manga though, so I wanted something different! So I went with a miny ice blue and I think it works so well with her. It makes her gentle and beautiful just how she is meant to be. Yuuki is actually portrayed as the most beautiful out of the group, she is rich and calm and very smart. So I kind of wanted to give that effect with Bara as well! And with the clothing, I wanted kind of flowy magical kind of look to her, making it more dramatic because she is the serious one out of all of them. I don't know, I just went all over the place. I know I will be doing touch-ups to her clothing. She will still have a robe, but you know, this was the first try! This is always the first drawing I have done that was done completely on my new drawing tablet! Ahh! I love using it so much! I feel so free and able to just sketch and get into tiny areas better. I'm so happy.

You really are gifted for that. When I was a kid, I used to draw lots of pictures. My elder daughter when she was a kid also did the same.

You're really talented at drawing. I could see the drawing was inspired from anime characters.
