“While Outlander is a brilliant period show, Claire represents so many qualities of a 20th-century modern-day woman, someone who is forging her own path, fighting for what she believes, and doing so with integrity,” Balfe said in a statement to press Monday. Elaborating exclusively to Vanity Fair, she added, “Right now it’s a very important time to stand up and voice our beliefs and reiterate that we are 50 percent of the population … that we have a voice and we need to use it. Even though Claire is a woman from the 40s, I think that she does have a resonance today. We need to stand up for our  b e l i e f s  and our  r i g h t s , and I think she embodies that kind of spirit.”

“…getting to play Claire was an absolute dream. She is strong-willed and, not perfect, but a survivor and a fighter, and I think that is such a great place to go to in your work every day—to play someone who has such resilience. It can only make you feel better about everything in your life. I feel very grateful to be able to go to work every day and play her.”

Happy International Women’s Day, sisters!

Decided it was high time to rework Clair’s design a bit! The old outfit was pretty cluttered and had way too many colors to be convenient to draw consistently, so I got to simplifying!

I’m going to be going through all of my characters, and working on them some. Most draws of them that I’ve done are in different outfits or situations where it’s difficult seeing what’s what, so I’m going to be making simple reference draws like this one and the one’s of Tallow and her siblings for the whole cast!
