Shield Maiden

Market and Dolores

Drawn today at a spot I like, on the sidewalk near a pet store on Market street.
Had a decent time drawing it, a composite from three different sketches. My friend Mikaela has such a striking face to draw from; this is another drawn from one of her photos.
Most people were friendly enough today but there seemed to be some disconnection. A lot of people were just intent on going about their business and seemed to have sour faces. Maybe it was the cool cloudy weather. And the wind was a bit intense. The fog spills over the hill very dramatically some days.
The figure I drew could be a base for one of the tarot characters. The general pose I borrowed from a Hindu costume sketch.
