(01.07.08) I drew a girl and then remembered the illustration was of a guy. So this particular Ea is a girl. That's kind of good though, since it's supposed to be a different character. Same name though.
About 3~3.5 hours total. Started in August, and now I finally got around to finishing it (Jan 08). This is still the prettiest face I've painted, I think. Of course, the lack of creating(!) in the last 4 months was probably a major contributing factor.
It's not very detailed or clear as it's for a card illustration (2.5x3.5"). Painted at 9x12" at 300dpi though, so I could technically make decent prints, though it is a bit blurry.
