My Latest Speed Drawing

Miku Hatsune from Vocaloid

My second speed drawing is up! Another great learning experience with this one. I started on a Galaxy Note 3 (Phone) and finished up on a Galaxy Tab S3 (Tablet). It was nice to move away from such a small screen.

See the finished work on my Deviant Art page.
