I think that girls with guitars are my go-to when I sketch mindlessly. The Jazzmaster looks a little thin but I can't really be bothered fixing it. I've been using very saturated colours lately, maybe because it's Autumn and the days are getting dreary.
This was just a goofy sketch and half way through colouring I realized that it resembled the girl in the Wendy's logo. I'd never make it as a graphic designer, looking through fonts is SO BORING!
I don't know why I used a super-contrasty shadow, but for some reason I like how the shadows look on the gloves/arm things. It doesn't look very good on skin though which is why I didn't really use it on the face.
I made it monochrome and added some noise to make it look a bit like a frame of film.
I came up with a riff and just kept layering guitars over the top. I couldn't come up lyrics, but wanted to finish the track, so I used some lyrics from War written by Norman Whitfield and Barrett Strong. The track ended up being brighter than what I intended. I still want to write proper lyrics for it and add drums. Hopefully that will give it a darker feel.

Another attempt at building on a riff. Similar to how a person who just discovers Photoshop uses a ton of lens flares and other cheesy effects, I've been using too many guitar tracks and vocal lines lately, so I threw away the bass-line and kept the vocal to one track to keep it from getting too dense. If I used a little bit of forethought I would have written it in a key that was easier to sing.
