Scary Chick

How the girl in this picture became know as "Scary Chick."

My husband came in the room while I was working on this drawing and this is how the conversation went:

Him: Oh, scary chick.
Me (hopeful): You think she's scary?
Him: Yeah, she's scary!
Me (elated): Cool!

Now, I didn't intend to draw something scary. That wasn't why I was excited. I was just excited that she is what she is. I feel like every time I draw something, it takes on a life of it's own and I'm so excited to see what the drawing looks like in the end. So, welcome Scary Chick, excellent meeting you.

The fact that you were able to project such a strong emotion means this portrait painting is very effective. And it's beautiful too, the colour and movement you have imbibed it with further boosted the malevolently hungry expression on her face. Great work!
