If this princess gig doesn't pan out, she could maybe go work for Cinnabon!

Lovely work. Really like the Art Nouveau design on her...um...clothing. :) Speaking of which, the holster is more clothing than she wears in most such pictures. :) Very nice and classy art, as usual. Reminiscent of the late Alberto Vargas.

Great, but the books say she has red skin, not white. :(

Yeah, I know. I've talked about this before with past Dejah drawings. Every time I do one I feel like I should try for a "copper" coloring (as described by Burroughs in the books, not "red" although he does refer to them as the red men of Mars) but with the colored pencils I use it would be a harder color to pull off. Of course when I digitally color I could just go all the way and try for a more accurate coloring but I haven't up till now. I'll tell you what I'll do; I'll go into photoshop and give her the copper coloring she should have and I'll post it.

As I've stated before, there is an artists precidence for using a lighter coloring to portray Dejah. The greatest fantasy artist of all time, Frank Frazetta, never painted Dejah with the copper coloring, she was always very white skinned, and he always painted a naval area. That is not to say that was correct, he was just great enough that he could get away with it and everyone was happy. And, I should never compare myself to Frank Frazetta, although I did meet him and work with him.

Wow, another gorgeous Dejah! Like the subtle shading of her abs and ribs. And no bellybutton! Nice!

Nice! Personally, I would have dispensed with the nipple covers and made her skin more red, as per the book.

Hey, you scared me. I went right away to Ebay to make sure it was there, and it is. Not sure why you couldn't find it. Thanks so much for your appraisal of my handling of the character, it is much appreciated.
