Madame of Magic by JesIdres Madame of Magic by JesIdres
Another insomnia doodle. This time, Jessica gets a turn. (Sorry, James fans).

Actually this started as another picture of one of the Witches of New York ( [link] and [link] ), but it quickly morphed into Jessica (who technically falls into the series, but not the one I was thinking of...).

The cane's not just an accent here; I haven't gotten to it in the comic, but the poor dear finds that some serious magic can disrupt her lower nervous system over time, leaving her with walking problems. (Yeah, I really am a sadist when it comes to my characters).

Now I've got this evil image of her driving Torchwood nuts. But that would be just getting a little too insertion happy (wow, THAT sounded naughty....).

Meh, I give up.

.5mm lead on copy paper. 20 minutes.

:lol: Can't get off the Who!Crack, can you?

She seems pissed at something. But then again, if my own magic gave me walking problems, I'd be mad too.

That's gorgeous. I love the idea of magic use being harmful to your system over time--if one accepts the idea of magic simply being another form of energy, like radiation, then it's quite possible that it could do something like disrupt your nervous system. Nifty concept.

And gawd, I want to steal her dress. Amazing picture, as usual. :D

From a creative curious side of things, do you mind if I ask which era or time period her outfit is from?

BTW, lovely drawing. :D

The outfit is a combo modern and 1870s styles.

Nice... mind if I use it to inspire me in my writing? :? I won't use the same design, I promise.

I'm trying to write something that takes place during the 1860s... and I'm struggling with describing clothes. I need inspiration! :(
