Another Western-inspired piece, because I’ve been watching too many westerns. And I also wanted to try doing facial details (such as creases) using eyebrows.

(I’ve often wondered, what roles did women play in the Old West outside of the confines of 19th-century gender roles?)February 19, 2015 at 5:24 am #120184

You won’t get much from history on the subject of what people “did” unless they had people praising them or being their biographer. Or wrote journals. For example, journalists in newspapers around the time of Jack the Ripper occasionally pandered to the public, declaring that women were far too ‘delicate’ to do things that their contemporaries in law enforcement knew better than believe. Polite society would frequently claim women couldn’t do things that were, [ahem] done by women in alleys seven blocks away.
So–if the woman failed or died in her last effort, she might have done anything at all. In the pioneer days, women survived however they did without telling anyone. As long as no one KNEW, no insecure males or overzealous females felt the need to put them in their place. The frontier was, therefore, perfect for the more capable woman and horrible for the historian.
So, make a situ where a woman HAD to do something that no one would’ve found out about, and write your story.February 19, 2015 at 5:04 pm #120209
The wild west has a problem of get misogynist portrayals, women are sidelined in to the kitchen and ignored in to the background.
Part of this is that action storeys ignore the really of pioneering and its politics, and have a six gun-toting white man shoot every problem.May 10, 2015 at 9:35 am #123881
I am not dead! (I liiiiive!!)
Yeah, sorry I haven’t been around. College work, coursework, and spending a lot of time working on a writing and drawing project (I have been pretty active and posting art on tumblr, though).
Anyway, here’s something quick-ish I did to try and get back into things (I know, rubbish name):May 10, 2015 at 9:37 am #123883
*puts on mad scientist voice* It’s ALIVE!!!
Good to have you back.May 11, 2015 at 2:45 pm #123927
Nice to be back around. I’ll try and make the effort to not disappear for several months on end again. ‘Try’ being the key word…July 26, 2016 at 7:49 am #136940
Hey, look who’s reemerged from the void
I haven’t actually done any heromachining in quite a while, but the other day I discovered there were some new items, so I decided to have a play with them on Ada Wilder- a character I’ve been working on a lot (mainly on tumblr).
Admittedly, it wasn’t entirely from scratch because I used the face of the western character at the top of page and modified it a tiny bit -it was already fairly similar to how I draw her-. I’m quite pleased with the masking job I did to get the suit jacket fit right
If anyone’s interested, I could post a drawing of her as well

“And here is creation named “Twilight City”, the only existing creation showing Lull-carae leaving earth without any traditional engine after getting slaped by epic style of Trekkie. If you look closely, you can see how he shows both thubs up to show even more respect over Treekie creations”
