Game, Set and Color (3)

This page was rather challenging for me because I couldn’t get the color of Jack’s blue suit right. I even bought a box of 64 crayons to supplement my 36 coloring pencils, but the color still looked off.

That’s when I had an epiphany. Who said I had to replicate the images from the show? Be creative, Foxy!

Once I decided that it was okay to deviate, the rest of the process went more smoothly. The plane turned out to be less rusty than I intended, but I like what I did with Phryne’s ensemble. All in all, I felt pretty good putting my fox stamp on the final product (and I made it blue to echo Jack’s suit).

“Miss Fisher is that rare fictional example of what life can be like for women who chose not to get married and/or have children — and how that alternative can be just as fulfilling.

This isn’t a story about a spinster finding love later in life and finally getting the traditional family she needs and deserves. This is a story about a sexually-liberated, vibrant, empathetic woman who has a wonderful family and community of her own making. 

Phryne is not someone to be pitied. She is one of the most alive characters on TV — a master detective who speaks multiple languages, knows martial arts, and can fly an airplane. Miss Fisher is competency porn at its most addictive, and its main character is a new, much-needed kind of archetype.”

Some of you came and watched me work on this earlier today. For those of you who dropped in, thanks! It was fun to have company over the computer.

I am really proud of this. It’s been a long time since I’ve made any serious attempts at good art, and this was a lot of fun and I think it went well. I’m sure there are some mistakes in there somewhere that I missed, but I don’t care at this point. I’m happy with how it turned out, and that’s the first time I’ve been able to say that about my art in a long while.

The circle emblems and the overlay pattern can be found here, and the font I used is called Eureka.

Now I’m off to bed because classes start tomorrow and I need sleep!
