Still sketching; this one’s taking a while, but the line art might end up on on a tshirt before I go for the full colour/paint.  As usual, more Adrien from my novel-in-progress, Half a Man.

A friend was lamenting the fact that most “pretty” cross-stitch patterns were of women.  Challenge accepted: I figured Adrien was the perfect subject!  This is still a work-in-progress (it has yet to be coloured, and I still need to fit it to a cross-stitch grid), but I’ve enjoyed making it so far (of course… because the style allows for so much hair fun)!
