Santana Lopez from Glee as played by Naya Rivera.
I've been drawing the whole cast and still have Mike, Matt, Brittany, Puck, Sue, Will and Emma left to do, but Santana had to be next.
I'm happy this character is on TV considering she brings more Latin visibility to television. She is a fun and interesting character, a popular Latin cheerleader in Lima Ohio. That's fantastic to me and eye opening for the country. Latinos make up 15 percent of the U.S. population and account for 4% of on-camera talent.
I love every line she has had on the show and many thanks to Ryan Murphy, Brad Falchuk, Ian Brennan and Naya Rivera!
Now give her a song!
