And now I'll turn the reins over to J to introduce hers!
*turns reins over*
Story time: As I watched the final (epic/spectacular/Anders/satisfying/AWESOME) season of BSG I decided that this weekend I would try drawing the different characters. And even more boldy, I decided to draw them in PEN. I can't remember what inspired that decision.
It took many ugly drawings before these Battlestar people started turning out. I nearly gave up, I maybe nearly cried but with the Husband's encouragement, I tried again. Here's a trick I discovered today: when drawing characters from a book/movie/show/etc., it can be helpful to first draw the one you like least, thus leading to less frustration if they don't turn out. Once things started coming together, this morphed into a page of all the lady characters from the series, and I think I got pretty much every single one (those who appeared on more than one episode anyway). If you're in know, take a whirl at guessing who's who! Answers follow the image.
I like how most of them turned out, especially Dee, Roslin and Six. And yes, Cally is first because I dislike her the most, haha.
Roll call (l-r, t-b): Cally, Tory, Kat / Dee, Boomer-Athena, D'Anna / Ellen, Six, Roslin / Hera, Starbuck, Racetrack, Eshay / Cain, man-haired Seelix, Kendra. Whew. Next week I'll go for all the Battlestar dudes. This is a much more daunting prospect but if they turn out, I will have gotten a lot of practice at drawing cropped hair.
