This is like Vintage Vanity. It reminds me of some glamorous time that I would want to visit. With pin curls, Coke bottles and cherry red lipstick. I also have never heard of grayscale so but it looks like something I should try!

I like it--simple image. I think it's cool how she doesn't look straight out at the viewer.

This is AMAZING! I love the feel of this drawing, though I'm not sure how to describe it.

What inspired you to draw this?

Thanks for posting, you are truly talented, Tori.
