I've never fallen more in love with a father-daughter pair than these two. If you haven't guessed by now, it's Constance and Mr. Benedict. Read a book, people
I might make this into a series involving the others, (probably actually) and those will come in due time. The idea grabbed me round the neck and shook me till this came out, no joke. And yes, Constance is probably a little older due to her long hair. Rhonda and Kate won't let her cut it.
And is that SHADING I see?! Gadzooks, what is the world coming too? I thought it was pretty good for a first attempt. And pardon the barren white space that is the background. Give me a suggestion of what to put there and I might just fill it!
Gimme feedback people! Let me know what you think.

I haven't been obsessed with a book in a long time, but I just LOVE "The Mysterious Benedict Society"! this is how I picture them~
INTROS! (for those who don't know them) ~ Reynie- The clever one. He likes to read and knows who to trust. He can also notice things others can't notice at first. He's practically the leader.
Sticky- The epically smart one. He has a photographic memory and remembers everything he reads (that's how he got his nickname 'Sticky'). He's shy and lacks self-confidence, but Reynie tries to give him the support he needs.
Kate- The courageous athletic one. She always carries her trusted bucket around. 'Why' you ask? So she can carry things obviously! She climbs through air vents and loves doing stunts! A real tomboy!
Constance- The downer. She likes writing smug poetry and lacks manners. She's tiny and stout and doesn't seem to respect her teammates. But I know that there will be a point in the story where Constance has her moment to shine! (Also, never call her 'Connie')
I own nothing! These epic characters belong to Trenton Lee Stewart! Read his books or kidnappers will zap you with their watches and take you to the Institute and get you with mind control and send you to the Waiting Room! DUH-DUH-DUN!
"Listen," said Reynie, ignoring her. "What is it that drew us all together? Maybe we should start there." "Mr. Benedict," said Kate and Sticky at the same time. "All right, how about something with his name in it, to remind us of our mission?" "'Mr. Benedict's Very Secret Team'?" said Sticky. Everyone groaned. Kate said, "How about 'Mr. Benedict and the Great Kate Weath-'" "Don't even finish that," said Reynie. "The Mysterious Benedict Society," Constance said, rising as she spoke. Then she left the room, apparently convinced that no more discussion was necessary. And, as it turned out, she was right. --------------------------------------------------------------------------------

I promise a colored version of this later! <3 even though I can never manage to properly draw Sticky lD
This is the part of the day where I admit I read children's books and enjoy them. I enjoy them more than books for people "My age". These aren't about making out with vampires they are about children detectives. I love them. <333
The book is "The Mysterious Benedict Society" and the main characters are (in the order I have them here) Kate, Reynie, Sticky, and Constance.
Trenton Lee Stewart is the author and they probably belong to him but definitely not to me. What even are sentences?
"What good is your bucket doing you now?" Jackson jeered. "I'm glad you asked!" Kate said, bending over the brook to scoop the bucket full of water. Instantly it was as heavy as a bowling ball. Returning to look down into Jackson's icy blue eyes-- he was only a few rungs from the top-- she gave him a friendly wink. And dropped the bucket. *etc etc etc he falls, the other evil guys fall* "Instant ton of bricks," Kate said with satisfaction. "Just add water." ~~~~~~~~~~~ Trenton Lee Stewart, YOU ARE A GENIUS!!!!! XD I quoted from his book, "The Mysterious Benedict Society"
Okay, I'll admit it now. I'm too obsessed with Trenton Lee Stewart's books. I was reading MBS, and I came across the part when our four heros encounter the Helpers on the hillside. One of them says to Reynie "...Everything is just as it should be." and that line inspired me. I was thinking of how the Helpers have been brainsweeped and now believe that to be true.
This here picture is after Milligan regains his memory, which I thouht fit the sentence. I know its sort of sappy, but I don't care. I like it.
AND! I know Milligan's hair is blue- but remember, he had to swim through the harbor to reach them!
Sorry for bad drawing and coloring! I made this rather quickly.
