When I have a bit of time in between freelance gigs I try to focus on projects that will help grow my children's and character development portfolio. I've done quite a few character projects for clients--often these come in the form of corporate or web mascot projects--but haven't spent too much time really developing characters of my own. Last week I carved out some time to do that, and the result was this little gal. She calls herself Abaline. See more of her here.
