I'm glad you commented, and that you liked it! I guess as long as we're talking about reference images for the depictions, I think my favorite are the Man with a Beard but No Hair and the Woman with Hair but no Beard. I tried to find a man with a big round beard, and a woman with big round hair, so that they somewhat looked like inverses of each other. And, I think Carmelita's outfit is way up there on the favorite things I've drawn.
did you spend like three hours shading the upper lip?
