I'm holding a Cross mechanical pencil in my right hand, in case you were wondering :) It's my favourite pencil for sketching.
The clothing is based on things I own. I may make some edits for accuracy in the digital.
Usually, Tabitha sits on my left shoulder and watches things behind me. I didn't really want to draw her like that though. I thought showing her face would be better.
When I hold Tabitha, I usually support her with my forearm, close to my waist. I don't usually hold her as shown, but I took some liberties for the sketch. I'm not sure yet if I want to move her to my shoulder and then put a sketchbook or something else in my left hand.
I just realized, I parted my bangs backwards in the sketch. Oops! I'll have to fix that later.
Hope you enjoy the sketch :)
