Well it’s Jai’Len’s 19th birthday, so I thought I’d try drawing her as Pearl.

Love the beautiful shading and tone of her skin. Amazing detail and rich contrasts.

I know, right? Her shoes rock! Pearl's look, I think, is precisely the most... derivative; is that the word I wanna use? In terms of her cartoon counterpart, her design really stands out. I don't know how to express it. It's still her character without being a blatant copy; admittedly, all the cast evokes this, but there's something about Pearl (and why does that sound like a title of something?). She ain't a preppy blonde, for starters. Additionally, it's super appropriate with how solemn she appears here. Perfect, striking pose.

IKR? Platform sneakers ftw.
I do have to say Pearl's and Karen's looks are probably my favorite they're so creative. Like how were you going to humanize a computer?
Or convey a whale? So they just made her shoes tall and gave her hair that resembles a whale snout. And I just love that they made her a punk rock cheerleader instead of a Sandra Dee.

I really love the look of these shoes, needless to say.

Yep. They did fantastic with that.

And this is how you conceive an adaptation, folks.

And it could've been a horror show, so props to them.
