stripes

i've always been drawn to zebra stripes, as well as zebras themselves.  they're fascinating animals.  i feel as though they're the most "modelesque" of the animal kingdom.  i plan to do more illustrations with this character soon.  the stripes required quite a bit of sharpening my colored pencil, but it was very enjoyable creating this elegant lady.  :)
