Lulu from Final Fantasy X. I was practising portraits and I guess the FFX characters are pretty good to practise on ^^. I used Lulu's official art as a reference, but the pose is original.
It might have worked out better if I'd had a reference picture of someone in that position to work from as well; I've never really been comfortable with realistic style drawing.
I'm not sure how long this took to draw; I spaced it out over three days. I still have a long way to go as portraits go, but this was definately good practise.
The writing in the background doesn't mean anything this time
It's just decorative brushwork. The red stamp in the corner is my Japanese name stamp; it reads 'Ri' (as in "Risa"; there's also a symbol for "Li" I believe, but I ended up being called "Risa" by everyone, so it seemed more fitting as my Japanese name.)
Oh, and I know this style of drawing/painting is one of my weak areas so critisism and tips are very much appreciated.
