Anna Brownell Jameson (17 May 1794 – 17 March 1860)
The first work which displayed her powers of original thought was her Characteristics of Women (1832). These analyses of William Shakespeare’s heroines are remarkable for their delicacy of critical insight and fineness of literary touch. They are the result of a penetrating, essentially feminine mind, applied to the study of individuals of its own sex, detecting characteristics and defining differences not perceived by the ordinary critic and entirely overlooked by the general reader.

Nicolas Collings created the early version of Jameson (except the hat, shirt, and jean pants in the image) before he left, and then I took over this character for extra work and modification such as modeling, texturing, shading and optimization. I also created the new head, beard, and hair through numerous changes and revisions. A hat, and some clothes were done by outsourcing.
May the road rise to meet you. May the wind be always at your back. May the sun shine warm upon your face. And rains fall soft upon your fields. And until we meet again, May God hold you in the hollow of His hand.
