A slight departure from my usual style, not so much in the drawing itself but in the execution. I started this out with the usual black lines, but after I laid in some of the color it just looked too harsh. I've never really played with colored lines before, but I like it. It wouldn't fit with everything I do since a lot of it has a black/white/accent color sort of palette, but in this case I think it works. Backgrounds have long been a point of weakness for me - I'd much rather just concentrate on the characters - but in an effort to strengthen my skill set (and my portfolio) I'm trying to work them in more often. Overall I'm very pleased with how this came out.

As for the title, well, it's a terrible, terrible pun and I should be ashamed of myself, but I'm not. I like her. She's kind of cranky and fully prepared to beat you to death with your own thigh bone. Unfortunately her awful posture is a case of "drawing what you know." I will almost certainly be 4'8'' and a hunchback by the age of 40. Bet on it.
