Character Study on Shayla

Meet Shayla. I was working last year on a character for a book
and they didn't use her, but I keep her around for instant inspiration.
I had fun creating her. I have a story in mind as well.

Oh V, you've done it again. I love how you are able to bring a character to life in just a few sketches! She is so full of personality! You know she's just dying for her voice to be heard ... I can't wait to hear what you've got up your sleeve! Wonderful job!
