I’m really pleased with how this turned out, I think I might focus on cell shading more often…! It’s super fun and looks dramatic~ Plus you can play around with incorporating extra things within the shading itself. Always good.
I spent some time on this while I was still excited by the first episode of The Bletchley Circle. If you didn’t watch it yesterday, I urge you to give it a go. The characters are brilliant and the story is exciting! It’s about four frustrated women in post-war Britain who used to be codebreakers at Bletchley Park*, and reunite years later to use their great intellect to find and catch a serial rapist killer. It’s equally awesome and rage inducing to see how these women battle the people around them who are sceptical (or just plain ignorant) of their mental abilities. Can’t wait for episode 2 :D
*I live round the corner from Bletchley Park, and I’m a little obsessed with the place hehe. It’s fascinating to think that its huge team of geniuses were possibly responsible for ending the war 3 years early. Shame that these people were not applauded for their efforts for something like 30 years, until the Official Secrets Act was ended. Instead we have the sad stories of people like Alan Turing and these fictional women, all not recognised for their efforts and in poor Mr. Turing’s case, horrifically punished.
Aaanyway, enough history. I hope you all like this illustration!
