Bit of an adventure today... went to my first Tai Chi class, something I'd wanted to try for years, but never managed to find back in Sheffield or Nottingham. Somewhat disgraced myself by going all faint as a result of the strenuous standing up we had to do before the exercises started... (I had originally typed "fainted like a big girl," before my belovèd, the factual Dr. F, pointed out that everyone else in the class except me actually was
a big girl, and all of them breezed through the lesson without going all wibbly.)
Original concept drawing of Rex, leader of the pack from XTNCT - I never drew his feet so well again...
Work-wise, I dug out my original character sketches for XTNCT, to go in the back of the new collection... funny to see how much the characters changed in the year between the first sketches and drawing the last episode.
Aviatrix was the character who changed most - I'd hoped to get away with giving her membranous Pterodactyl-type wings, but Alan Barnes and Paul Cornell insisted on feathers...
It goes underwater and resists nuclear attack, but the insurance is prohibitive and it takes up two parking spaces at Sainsbury's...
These are terrific designs, really rather fab n groovy. Great inking too!
