"Draw an original character for yourself! You can draw it, use free photo and source stock to frankendoll it together, you can really create it however you wish as long as you're creative AND you're playing around with the Photoshop tools!! Focus on character design, for example, a skull ghost with a cape! You can take this idea however far you'd like, just have fun. It's gonna be your character, after all! From you friendly neighborhood mango."
I took my time making it, and used some tools I'd never used before (mainly, I hadn't used the Shape Tool to such an extent as I did with the bubbles). Thank you for your request!
Looking forward to more requests from you from the future.
