I am back from vacation! And our studio got a few new machines, so naturally I needed to play with the new toys. The result: Tris doing what she loves most.

Only photo ref was a quick google search for a shaggy white dog to make sure I got the hair laying right. Mostly this was just for me to keep in practice since I’ve been terribly at keeping up frequent loose sketches this summer.
