Background character: She is one of three people in charge of communication on the spaceship. We don't ever see her out of that position, so she only gets a shot of her sitting down.

Not a whole lot of thought into her personality other than she does her job fine.

Still working on what I want the uniforms on the ship to look like, so everyone for now are wearing different uniforms, but I plan on picking just a few in the end.

It's very subtle, but that's amazing shading with colored pencils in the glow of the screen and face shadows.

She seems to have a very bored expression that would go well with her doing her job just fine.

Thanks! It has been so long since I've used colored pencils, but I really think that practicing digital coloring has really helped me learn how to use them.

And yep, she's totally bored. Not much goes on most of the time. But, she's ready just in case.

Ohhh, I love playing with colored pencils. Unfortunately, I always lose mine and they end up in 27 different places around my house. You did a really cool job on the lighting and shading of this. I find it a bit difficult to shade with colored pencils and not go over/underboard.

As for the character, I love her hair. It's so wild and messy, yet it's pulled back in that way that lets us know she's serious and she doesn't have time to mess with it.

Thanks. I am lucky enough with my colored pencils to have collected way more that I could ever need over the years, so I can always find some of them.

I like this design.
The character seems like like she really could exist.

Thanks! Ultimately for the comic I sort of want realistic characters in a sort of crazy alien world.
