#RepresentationMatters. Artistically speaking, I've been guilty of racism by omission for many years. As a painter (with mostly Caucasian background) the enlarged palette of reflection hues that dark skin offers scares me shitless. It's been high time to conquer that fear and do my part in regards to representation of all ethnicities. Please be kind, I’m making baby steps here...

Is that the actor who played the girl which had to be taken to the moon (egg), because the Doctor had insulted it in the 8th season?

I think you did a very good job with the skin-tones :)

Yep, that's her.
I liked her sass.

And thank you! :hug:

I liked the doctors reaction to her sass even more. Grumpy old man :)

Thank you so much.
I'm actually feeling quite satisfied ans accomplished with this one. Let's see for how long ;)

Nebeneffekt: Finde es deutlich besser das Bild von Jessa Coleman, aber da Ellis George halt nicht so bekannt ist, wird es weitestgehend ignoriert. Tja. Aber war zu erwarten...
