The Sheers Of Doom

This all started as an attempt at drawing a woman - not just the face for once - and ended up as something I'm quite proud of. I'm a really big fan of the art of Frank Miller (ever since about three weeks ago) and this is probably my best attempt yet at emulating his style, especially that of Sin City, which I've yet to read, and learning how to draw at the same time.

Anyway, I drew her outline, chose this way of shading it, and then started adding the atmosphere. Don't ask me what the scary mechanical sheers are that she's running away from, but they sure scare me!

Well, it's not perfect but was a lot of fun to do. I ought to try drawing on paper next time, as using a computer to draw is too fiddly.
