I finally learned what translation of Les Mis I read first.  it's the C. E. Wilbour translation.  I like it much better than the Hapgood translation.  it was written only a year or so after the original french was published.  it definitely feels purer for it.  some feel it is a bit unreadable, but I love the way it's written.

Evey again by blackparademajorette
Evey again
Lemme tell you something about V for Vendetta. It's set in the '90s, but it was written in the '80s. So, it's not surprising to see that they're all dressed like they're still in the early 1980s, when they live in the late 1990s. Some of the costuming choices in the comic aren't that bad, for example, Helen Heyer's hairstyle and mink coat look a bit like a throwback to the golden age of Hollywood, but still seem pretty timeless. Evey's neon dress and makeup, on the other hand, sticks out like a sore thumb and feels very dated. So here she is, actually looking like she could have actually come from the '90s

Same doodle of Evey, colored in with the comic's pallette, except for her blonde eyebrows. gotta love those garish comic book colors, am I right? Might recolor with my own pallette. Til then, enjoy this one

Evey Hammond by blackparademajorette
Evey Hammond
Rereading V for Vendetta and I wanted to draw Evey. She gets so much pain, and honestly for so little. I guess she's waiting for V to get back and really starting to process what almost happened to her; maybe scolding herself for ever thinking prostitution was a good idea. I was trying make her look somewhere between frightened, sad, and numb. Also, heavy makeup is so fun to draw with pencil.

Guess who stayed up til 4 am to read the entirety of V for Vendetta?  Yeah, me.  It was on sale at the google play store for $2.99. And I was like, how could anyone pass this up?  I had absolutely no exposure to the franchise save a few screen caps of Natalie Portman as Evey and "remember, remember, the fifth of November."  I did read Watchmen, however, and loved every inch of it.  The storytelling was so rich, like something out of an opera, but so frank and gritty, like an investigation news story.  There are some comics that are technically graphic novels and then there are comics like Watchmen, that deserve to be knighted as pure graphic novels in every sense of the term.  I felt the exact same way about V for Vendetta.  A pure graphic novel balancing epic storytelling with real world grit.  It did not disappoint.  10/10 would recommend to anyone with even the slightest interest in stories about a third World War or masked anarchist vigilantes

haven't started yet, actually.  missed a lot of school.  But don't worry, I got a ton of credible sources, it's just a matter of doing the actual physical drawing.  Are you planning another maker meanwhile? Your harpies are awesome.

Okay, just checking. :)
And yes, at the moment I'm making a Royal Portrait Maker. It's the first near-photorealistic dressup game I've ever made.
