I took some time out from drawing lots of little panels to do a quick chick-pic today. It was nice just to be able to breathe on the page a bit. It's not anything like a finished piece of that, but it's served it's purpose (to give my head a break) so it probably won't get any further.
My rendition of Captain Sarita, though I tried to make her a bit more Arabic featured around the nose and mouth to make her a bit more exotic- I really love Steve Yeowell's art a lot, but I'll concede his women are sometimes a bit 'samey'. Anyhoo- like it, hate it or go 'meh'!
Just a little rough and tumble, Judge man.

A woman's smile is, IMO, one of the hardest things there is to capture with pencil and paper. This is just lovely, Mr Deever. The hands, also the undoing of many a pencil-monkey, are just superb.

You may feel justifiably proud of this piece of work, and can drink your weak lemon drink now.

Cheers!

Beautiful, absolutely beautiful.

Your apotheosis is doubtless imminent.

It's a really nice drawing.

Were you using Lucy Pargeter (Chas Dingle from Emmerdale) as a face reference though? It does look a lot like her.

Very good Dog Deever. A lovely smile and lovelier curves. What more could you want?  :)
