At the end of 2020 I switched from using Paint Tool Sai (which I had used since 2011) alone, to using Clip Studio Paint. I fell in love with the brushes CSP has to offer. As a way of getting comfortable with the program, I was doodling a lot of close-ups of faces.
I really love my characters Sharla's fashion sense, so I made these two in that timeframe. I was remembering this eyeshadow palette I had bought at Claire's when I was about 10 that was supposed to make a rainbow gradient look, oh and the Ken doll earrings she has are based off a childhood Ken doll I had (still have!). I enjoy the variety that Sharla is allowed to have since she changes her hair and look so often.
