Not super original seeing as there's a ton of Lina fan art out there, but I like red heads so I had to work with that.
I've only been doing short speedpaints the last little while, so the urge to do a more serious painting has been growing and growing. I've been playing Dota 2 a lot as well... so that could be why I haven't had the time to paint <_< The hands are pretty bad, yeah.
If I had to guess... probably 15-20 hours over 2 days and a bit. Photo reference for the pose. Character design by Valve.
