For quite a while now, I have been searching for a "model" for my drawing and painting, which I have decided to get back into. She had to have certain qualifications--I needed her to be very posable, and able to hold those poses--I didn't want some "cover girl", I wanted her to be slightly "other worldly", maybe a bit Goth, have a certain haunting quality to her looks--not be necessarily beautiful, so much as interesting.
So, yes, all of this is a tall order, and not easy to find. But find her I did! Meet Ember, who came all the way from Russia to be my model.
