I have this headcanon that Anna loves trashy romance novels. Loves them to the point of actually narrating one in her head when she’s feeling particularly romanced or flustered or turned on. So, I decided to draw her and Hans together in the style of a trashy romance novel.
But guys… this project is a big deal for me. A big deal. This is the first actual digital painting I’ve ever done, where I used different brushes to achieve different textures. I painted every brick on that lighthouse by hand. The background is all me. Sure, I downloaded some new Photoshop brushes and learned a new trick or two, but I didn’t cheat and use a photo background. And when things didn’t look right, I used shading to fix them. I am ridiculously proud of the effort that went into this piece. (Also, it took me over a week, off and on.)
