Is she firing caseless ammo? I don't see any brass getting ejected from what is obviously an automatic of some sort. :)

Well why didn't you say that about the blue version on Monday! ;P

Obviously, the gunfire is matted in, like Legolas's arrows! ;)

I should prolly point out that I like the picture, too. I wouldn't want the only thing I say to be some negative bit of nitpickery. :) You put too much work into it.

Legolas' arrows weren't real? *gasp*

Besides, the gun could have jammed, not ejecting the cartridge.

Actually, the gun is intended to be a Colt .45, with the picture occurring just as the muzzle moves forward and the hammer falls. Strictly speaking, the cartridge isn't ejected until the muzzle cycles backward, so it shouldn't be visible yet.

That's my story, and I'm stickin' to it!

Ahh, when I first looked at it, I thought the hammer had re-cocked (yes, thats a word). But if it's a Colt then it has the exposed hammer for manual (single pull) operation.

Colt 1911 model, if what I searched matches what you've drawn

Yup, the good ol' classic 1911. :) (Actually, I think the ref. I used was actually a 1911A, but I'm not sure what the differences are.)

But by all means, don't stop doubting! It keeps me honest. :)

Uh-oh, is she going to get typecast? Kitten Kaboodle, Temple Raider, The Jungle Queen.... She needs a period piece, perhaps, to balance her resume.

Hey, it's a living! :D Besides, she's got a romantic comedy in the works...

Thumb looks much better (probably a coloring thing for me...in the pencil it looked as though it was turned backwards)! :)

Have a great day!

I flipped the thumb over on your recommendation, actually. :)

Oooh, 'splodey. I have a sudden desire to get some sticks, marshmallows, chocolate, and graham crackers.

Scary woman! :::Hides under the bed:::

Seriously, though, came out great! That's one mean action pose. Prit-ty explosion too ;-)

Thanks! *^.^* Some bits of it I'm less than thrilled with, but the explosion and ambient glow on her back I was pretty pleased with. :)
