OK, so she's proving herself to be a worthy adversary. I've been working and reworking her face and I just can't seem to get it right. Of course, part of the problem is what I mentioned in her first (very faint) appearance, which is that right out of the gate I had the angle of her head wrong. But, since I decided to forge ahead anyway, the problem only magnified itself as I drew. I had the eyes at the wrong slant and the line of her right side (the one on our left) is wrong. Howsomever (I know, not a real word, but it seem to fit the bill), I valiantly (or stubbornly, which is more to the point) struggled on with her until I just had to stop..... which is not to say that during this process I didn't walk away from her a number of times, giving each of us a much needed time out. I turned her upside down and sideways, trying to get a better feel for the lines, and the acrobatics did help. She, however, didn't agree and complained bitterly. So in the end, I told her we were through for the day, leading to a giant sigh of relief from us both.
