She's awesome! Anxious and clearly lost, as she should be.
That's exactly what I wanted to get across. "Lost" is a very good word.

The texture of the paper seems to work well with her dress of a lightly armour-like design.
Thanks. I wasn't even counting on that effect when I first started, since I haven't really worked with textured paper (successfully!) in the past, but it just worked out that way.

As for the design, it's definitely influenced by their armor, but I also had something kind of Victorian in mind, too.

And I hadn't noticed that earlier, but do I see a plait on the left (my left) side of her head? A plaited, falling apart bun, perhaps?
That's exactly what it is...a bun or coronet braid that has come undone.

Re: "Shaping a Cardassian" - characters

Ok, here we go. On the first page of this thread you have Glinn Brenok. Brenok was promoted and now he's a gul.

This drawing/painting is my second attempt. His hair was painted with watercolour pencils and so were his eyes, though partially--only the green irises were painted. The pupils were drawn with a pencil.


(It's a thumbnail, please click for full size.)

As I've said elsewhere, I think you have the most natural ridge shading here that I've ever seen from you.

Re: "Shaping a Cardassian" - characters

Here's the artwork I made for the cover of my story Among the Dragons.

I used charcoal stick for black colour and coloured pencil for brown elements of the pylon. The paper is actually white, but I wanted a grey background, so I darkened it while scanning.

Kapoor in her Cardassian armour and certainly irregular earrings
