*le gasp* What's this? Zima uploading art? And not just that, something she's actually drawn within the last 24 hours? Yes, your eyes do not deceive you.

The irresistible subject matter of this unlikely occurrence is River Song dolled up in the iconic Jessica Rabbit getup from the lovely goddessdel's Just Drawn That Way which can be found here: archiveofourown.org/works/2698… The story is brilliant and fun and everything you could want out of a lighthearted, fluffy, and smutty bit of Doctor/River.

For the purposes of the fic, in addition to donning the most improbable of dresses with the help of some molecular glue (to minimize the risks of obvious wardrobe malfunctions), River also has her hair straigtened, styled, and temporarily dyed red (which I lamentably couldn't portray due to the lack of colors/coloring skills on my person) not only to complete the iconic look but also to emulate her beloved mum. :giggle: It's Pond girls stuff like that that really gets to me. Although I admittedly still drew her with a dash of errant curls here and there, as it is hard for me to make River look consistently one way whenever I draw her. The hairstyle I depicted is a quite a bit of Amy with a bit of River peeking through. Her hair starts to look like it's normal twisting, untameable glory later on in the story anyways, so I figured it works... It's also why I put a bit of work into making her face a teensy bit realistic - it may not look it, but I used a few reference photos of the Kingston to make sure I got the nose and lips down properly.

Also that's the railing of the staircase inside the TARDIS that she's holding onto. ;) Got to keep her balance on those signature Loubotins.

Alright, so as it happens to be my habit of mildly complaining about some aspect of the work that I am never satisfied with, while drawing I was expecting I would lament the positioning of her feet or perhaps dwell on the fact that my brain went to stippling as the way to illustrate jeweled glitteriness.

But no, my unsatisfied wanking is coming from the fact that my scanner hates me and destroyed the representation of this, the first piece I've put a bit of tender loving care into in a while. I devoted the whole page to drawing this and had her front and center and quite frankly, if I do say so myself, it looks amazing in person. My scanner on the other hand likes to be a seclusionary hellion and zoomed in on just what I'd drawn, so all the negative space I'd given her command of is just gone. Also it ate her left elbow. *hisses* Ah well. :faint:
