Office Linda by TerdBurgler Office Linda by TerdBurgler
Gah, it hurt to upload this. Not because I didn't want to share it, but because I had to shrink it down so far. I spent a LOT of time on this pic because, as you can see, it was well deserving. The detail is emaculate on this piece, and I feel that you just miss out on so much when it's shrunk. Be that as it may, I didn't skimp out on this drawing in any way. When I finished the lineart for this, I knew from the start that I was NOT going to cut any corners. A lot of time was spent editing and perfecting the lines, and I took a very different (and I feel, effective) direction with the CG. Coloring is 5-tone, applied via a feathered pen tool. As you can obviously see, I did something very different with the hair. Some of you may say it's a new style, but it's actually one of my original hair-coloring techniques. After executing it for the first time in my Yugigirl34 gift, I declared the technique effective but much too difficult and time-consuming to persue and was thusly abandoned. Now, finding myself in search of a new hair-coloring technique and not wanting to short this pic in any way, I gave it another shot and I was pleased with the results. This is actually the best of three seperate hair attempts, all of which I still have on my computer and am paranoid to think that I picked the worst rather than the best.

This is Linda, Anthropomorphic fox and kind neighbor and friend of Seraph's. She also works in middle-management, working her way up the corporate ladder. However, for people like her, the glass cieling approaches quickly. As a female AND anthro, she knows that she probably doesn't have many more promotions to look forward to, but she still tries her best even if that means casting aside who and what she is in the hopes of success. While Linda's life may not be tragic, her situation is. She lives to please others, to be accepted and loved at all costs. She has abandoned her own identity, taking up that which is most pleasing to others. While it may give her many friends and social acceptability, what she lacks is true substance as a person, an identity aside from the facades. When she is alone, she continually ponders who she really is inside, and envies Seraph's freedom. Success truely comes at a very high price.

I did it like that because a lot of girls I know tie their hair back during the work day to keep it out of the way. It's a very realistic thing for her to do during the work day.
