Well, I drew a picture. It's EGB fanart, and it's also EGBFan art! :D It isn't perfect but it's the best I can do, at least for the time being. I call it Spoons (it is not of literal spoons).

Very nice. Lovely picture of Pagan the Cat and his servants. :lol:

A belated thank you, Fritz, for your comment on my first attempt.

I didn't want to give a whole new post only to that. I now have a second attempt: Sisters. Guess who! (Artist comments on DeviantArt will confirm, and tell you what I think of it myself.)

Re. my previous post: I've made a few changes to the picture linked therein, very minor, but to me it makes a big difference. I like it better now. But I'm still (re-)learning, and constructive criticism is welcome.

Full disclosure: I am still, and always will be, much happier with how I was able to translate Conchita from my mind to the page than Rose. She's difficult! But again, I've done the best I can at present. After some more practice, who knows? But it's thanks (strangely enough) to Demi Moore that I was able to draw Rose's profile to any degree of my own satisfaction. I never thought of it before, but must now remember to be on the look-out for opportunities to have someone say she looks kind of like Demi in fanfic. :P

Did I revisit the pic because I was hoping for a little attention? Well, that may have been a factor. :? But I'm glad I did, because now I think it really is the best I can do for a while, at least.

Having been reading their adventures for like...yikes...twenty years now, it's interesting to have a visual straight from you. I kept picturing Mimi Tachikawa from Digimon Adventure and a more normally skin colored Raven from Teen Titans (Rose sounds like her mother!) whenever I pictured them in my head, though a little less so after you put up those pictures on your site.

I really need to get off my tuckus and draw more.

Thank you for commenting, Fritz. I know you've got stuff going on, not to put too fine a point on it. For anyone to be interested enough in a fan creation to visualise it in any way is a compliment, and a reader (of anything, I mean) is always going to imagine in their own way. To be able to draw one's characters as we imagine them our own selves - just for the record, as it were - is an enviable talent indeed.

That character creator Jake and I used was great for the basics: eye colour, hair type, and dress sense down to the armpits. That's all I really wanted for most of them. Conchita and Rose are the only ones whose specific features - face shape, nose shape, build and such - really matter to me (I guess their being a carefully imagined combination of two beloved canon characters would account for that). As I implied, I'm going to attempt to get really good at drawing those girls, but if I can't, that portrait of them will satisfy me.

Attempting to draw stuff really is my big project right now. I have a few more ideas for more EGB fanart/EGBFan art, and at least one OC portrait... perhaps too many ideas, as I don't know which of them I'll be able to pull off. The frequency of my posting in this thread depends not on my output, but on how I judge its success. We shall see!
