  1. I’m starting a new, well what I call a CS or Creation Series, and my mind is blank. The name of this series is “Knights of the Second Pinnacle”. I have the First Pinnacle, which is mainly a medieval-type CS. Give me some ideas about this CS.

    Okay, this drawing isn’t at all impressive (or even finished), but I offer you chance to help the image in its nascent stages.

    The character I’m dreaming up is named Catherine, and she’s a detective/psychologist character. Her concept is that she’s a child-abuse survivor, and although she’s a beautiful, elegant woman, she still walks with a cane. And that’s where I need help.

    I’d like some advice on how to get her “pose” correct with the cane, whether standing or walking (right now, she’s stuck somewhere in-between).

    I’d like to take care of this *before* adding, say, clothes or colors, so that’s why the drawing is so raw and unfinished.

  3. Being a psychologist and abuse survivor I would say go for a more covering business suit attire. Says professional and closed off. An appearance of a limp during walking would be okay, or even standing and leaning a little on the cane. Just my inital thoughts.

    Those are totally fair observations, and I thank you; I just need specifics. I don’t *see* that many people walking with canes, for example (people seem to prefer walkers, wheelchairs, or scooters now), so I’m open to a LOT of advice.
