No doubt poor old Alan Craddock will get the blame.

The important point is that Craddock coloured her the same as her mum*. And Fading Of The Light and Cadet make a point of saying she's the spitting image of her mum. So, the correct answer to the question 'what colour should Judge Beeny's skin be?' is 'the same colour as her mum'.

Just as a general point of order, Beeny's half Puerto Rican and half ginger. She could legitimately have been portrayed as either or anywhere in-between, but since her resemblance to her Maw is a story point, let's go ahead and say the current situation is probably right.

Although, of course, nobody (even MacNeil) really draws her looking much like her mum at all. MacNeil's art on America is beautiful beyond words, but his character design for Ami is so odd - a product of his style and the media he was using - not even he can draw the character in that way anymore.


* Well, her dad, but in her mum's body ...

Hmmmm.  Alan Craddock gets a lot of stick given that he was plying his craft at the early, experimental era of digital comic colouring.

On the other hand, I fecking hated his work, and it was everywhere.

Well since she had a chameleon thing maybe it's a case of owners looking like their pets.

Hershey was 38 as far as i can remember in the cal files, she kind of looks the same now. Shouldn't she look more like a woman in her 50s? can't imagine a judge would would be too bothered about looking more mature.

and if you think that's iffy, check out Anderson in Megazine 400... 40 years fight the worse mentalist in MC1 and she looks ready for Freshers Week  :-\
I call that bold talk for a one-eyed fat man!
