Hi there fellow TRF members!
It's been some time since I submitted some art works over here, but that certainly doesn't mean that I stopped doing any.
You can view some of my newer works over here: blackjacknl.deviantart.com (http://blackjacknl.deviantart.com)

Now onto my new project. It's a drawing of my ex-girlfriend. Her name is Madelon and after we broke up we decided to stay friends (and an awkward couple of weeks followed)
Well, since I'm going away for a longer period in about a month, I wanted to give her a present, namely a drawing.

Well, this is the drawing I made yesterday. I drew it completely with a blue ballpoint pen. I based it entirely on a photograph of which she gave to me when we were still going out.

Now I decided to color it in photoshop, using some new techniques. One of them was for the hair. I've never succesfully drawn hair in Photoshop.
This is my first attempt into making realistic hair, and I think it turned out quite nicely.
