Today’s post is brought to you by Cracked Magazine, but not really. One of my friends is both an avid fan of Cracked and the wiki world community (he likes to write encyclopedias). He commissioned me to create a drawing of his favorite Cracked Magazine reporter Nanny Dickering (if you don’t know who she is you don’t need to be ashamed (I didn’t either) and check out the entry that he wrote for her (http://cracked.wikia.com/wiki/Nanny_Dickering). I did a couple of sketches of the lady and then decided to toss Phil in for good measure. You can check out his site for Shakespeare at (http://www.edwoodonline.com/ShakeCo/MAIN.html).
This first one was a quick pen and marker sketch of my ideal of an intrepid woman out to get the story and look good doing it.
This is actually my third sketch (I threw out the second), and I decided to take the liberty of making Nanny a red head. I think this one is my favorite.
The final drawing was done with pen and colored pencils, and some digital painting. I still haven’t gotten into a rhythm on the scanner, but I’ll get there. I’m watching Hudsucker Proxy even now, and I can recommend it for an excellent movie with a strong female reporter.
