So since these sketches for me are simpler than the Beast Wars ones, I figured I'd get another up. This time we have Trini Kwan/Saber Tooth Tiger Ranger played by the late Thuy Trang. Such an awesome character and I always wanted to draw her, so I think this is a good tribute.

Update 10/31: I moved the head band over a bit to look more natural. I think it was the only real problem with this piece.

You really captured her likeness.  And the hairband does look naturally placed (Don't know how it looked before, but I can tell).


I'll be your huckleberry! Pray :pray: remake  Rest in Peace, Thuy Trang.

Y'know somethin'?  Not only did she die 8 days before the 9/11 attacks.  But she also died one day before my 8th birthday.
