Black Dahlia by Mayumi Ogihara

Black Dahlia
by Mayumi Ogihara

Prompt: Black Dhalia
prompted by: ElmaBree, during Sketch Fest #28 (September, 2012)

pencil and charcoal on 5x7 Bristol smooth paper reference: Wintermoon-Stock on DA I wanted to draw something unrelated to Elizabeth Short. I didn't have enough time to draw dahlia properly so I smeared charcoal on paper and drew petals with kneadable eraser. Hope you like it!
