I’m sorry I don’t have the footage for the character to go for this (I didn’t plan to do a video of this), but I was doing free drawings for people on Reddit, and I offered u/concerned_squirtle to do a full backgrounded piece for his character.

By then I had gotten a whole lot better with Photoshop in terms of coloring, so when I took to this piece it had a different level of quality over the pieces I’d usually do.

 

I couldn’t have asked for a better, sexier version of Britney from anyone, and don’t think anyone would be matching up to that for awhile. This is exactly how I saw her in my head and am thankful to see someone do her justice.
