That Little Black Dress by StressedJenny That Little Black Dress by StressedJenny
I was requested by some friends to do a reproduction of this pic for them at the Cardiff Comic Con:
I immediately said hells yes, as I'd already done it I couldn't really go wrong, but its so interesting how much I've changed my approach to drawing these two characters in the year since I submitted the original. Its subtle changes really. (he already does have that nose, I just blacked it out of the original) I put a bit more effort into it with tip ex and markers too and it seemed to work for the better. The other two pics were spin offs from doing that drawing. I think I completed both of them watching an episode of Rome, so they were quite quick, though I think Elle is off model in both of them. Ah well, I had fun ^__^

Oooh and I forgot to mention. That shady character is now called Galfridus Leadbury. But he just like s Leadbury.

I looked at this and the picture in the desc, and even though I don't know much about these characters, I like their designs and these poses. .3.

Just realized what the middle one reminds me of, that scene from "French Kiss," when Kevin Klein is explaining to Meg Ryan how she has a, "little walk," is Not Quite like that of a little girl, and not quite like a of a woman.

I both characters and I love all three pictures. Having said that, I don't understand what is happening in the pictures. Is the creature a shadow of the human, or what?
