...will always result in a routine complication." ~Lady Absinthe.
I think the only thing sadder than me not drawing her for so long is that I've never actually drawn her doing the sorts of things she actually...does. At-a-glance from all of the previous art I've done of my character Absinthe over the years yields little insight into the fact that she is a twisted and brilliant necromancer and mad scientist (of course if you've actually read what little I've posted of the story "Uncanny Hosts" you know more). Inktober I think is the best opportunity to rectify this slight.
I tried to make it look a bit "old school pulp graphic novel" but whether I accomplished that or not remains to be seen but regardless, I love how this came out and is one of my favorites for this month so far, even considering the errors I see.
Done in my moleskine with pigment liners and felt pen. Character is the intellectual property of myself.
