Mrs. Drake Development Sketches [artwork]

Mrs Drake Dev Sketches by ~the-gneech on deviantART

Development sketches for Mrs. Drake, one of the new characters in Arclight Adventures. She doesn't normally look quite so sour, but don't be fooled -- she really IS that sour. In many ways, she's the "anti-" of everyone else in the group.

Fagin: She shares his culture and sophistication, but none of his benevolence and good humor.

John: He's showy and rambunctious, she slinks in corners and tries to avoid notice.

Charlie: She's cheerful and rowdy and loves everybody, wheras Mrs. Drake is cold and quiet and doesn't care about anybody.

Verity: She's compassionate, idealistic, and fascinated by technology; Mrs. Drake is self-centered, cynical, and only cares about technology as a means to an end.

Hm, I dunno. I like the braid, the neatness somehow adds to the humorlessness. But I don't know how that'd look with a hat!

Yeah, rumpled scraggly hair doesn't seem quite her -- it's the most annoying length: long enough to get in her eyes or be grabbed, not long enough to braid or put up out of the way. She seems more the practical sort, who'd want it out of the way.

I like the expressions and outfits!

Actually, I'm wondering if her hair shouldn't be very short to facilitate wigs. She probably doesn't like to look the same twice!

Thanks, re: expressions. :) She's sorta like Brigid's meaner great-great-grandmother.

If that's the case, how do we know that she ISN'T wearing a wig.

I like the hairswitching idea. If it helps, though, from what I've seen as long as hair is fairly straight and fine, a surprising amount can be hidden under a wig...even if it's long.

See below, re: hair length. She is definitely someone who has every hair put right where she wants it, tho!
