Jane freakin' Goodall by OurobourosAngel Jane freakin' Goodall by OurobourosAngel
I had no idea whether to class this as traditional art or digital art, but went with traditional since more work went into the sketch than the digital sepia effect.

I bet no-one is going to get the joke behind it; this is no ordinary Jane Goodall, but the sort of alternate universe Jane Goodall from Irregular Webcomic! [link] who is NOT ONLY a world-leading scientist and humanitarian and a Dame, but a time traveller, the best paranormal field investigator in SASquaTCH - Secret Action Squadron Team of Cryptid Hunters (a secret society that is actually secret), a fluent speaker of Yeti, and someone who will get things done because, as she'll tell you herself, she's Jane freakin' Goodall!
I had already pretty much done the sketch before I got to look her up on the cast section of the comic site and realised she had pouches on her belt and a jacket, so I just added a second belt with pouches 'cause it looks cool, and gave her a chimp to carry her jacket. Why? Because she's Jane freakin' Goodall.

Speaking of digital sepia effects on sketches, I used this as a random sketch to experiment with this cool tutorial [link] by *ouija-b. Unfortunately my scan of the picture turned out to have an uneven background so it was much whiter at the bottom than the top so I added a slight gradient of the same colour at the bottom to disguise how much whiter it was than the rest, especially since I stuffed the shoes up and would rather attention was not called to them :P

edit: this pic has gotten nearly 100 views within two days, which is pretty trippy for something of mine that hasn't been submitted into any groups or contests, or even been put up on the fan art page of the IWC site yet as far as I know. Don't suppose anyone knows why?

It was linked from the IWC Facebook page. Very nifty pic, although you may have let the cat out of the bag about the fact you aren't happy with shoes :)

That explains everything! :D
Maybe I shouldn't have said anything about the shoes, and no-one would have noticed . . . too late now LOL
