pencils on 11 x 17" EON artboard

This image was something that just popped into my head one day. I don't really know where it came from, or even what it means, exactly. It has a very slight tinge of horror to it, to me. That's what I was going for when I drew it. I used a small photo for reference for the girl, but I had to add a lot of detail that wasn't clear from the poor picture quality. I also wanted it to be sparse and a bit "designy" kind of image, to emphasise the focus on the character(s). I really like this pic a lot, it was a way of working on tone & shading, which a lot of my art doesn't have.
