Here is a little quickly I whipped up in the excitement of being back into art. This is more of an extermination with colors and inking/warm up than anything really.
A friend of mine was nice enough to let me use a picture of her for reference so yay! Many thanks go out to Anna.
I tried to change the face a little just to get into the groove of not using my reference to a T as it were. Other than that I tried to keep it more or less accurate.

Inking: 15 minutes.
Scanning: Forever.
Photoshop coloring: 20 minutes.

I'm back

So, I have been working. In fact, more than ever I've really been putting an effort into doing more "complete" at home projects. At one point a professor of mine told me that my work never really looks complete so I've been striving to improve this.
Unfortunately my scanner doesn't work with my new computer so I'll have to use the ones at school once I find time in between the homework that I've been throwing my whole efforts into.
To prove that I have, in fact, been doing artsy things, heres a project that I worked on in class for about an hour or two. I scanned an old drawing and colored it [the rendered version is at home and I will be posting that at a later date]. This version, however, is only 10 colors as directed by my professor. The assignment was really just to get us warmed back into Illustrator.

Do expect lots of posts from me, I will be working my tailbone off from now on.

Heres my 10 color vector drawing, rendered version following later:

Heres a little experiment of black and white minimalistic splatter. This'll help me with my ink drawings and such with compostition. In other words, I think it's pretty:
