Lady Sybil Ramkin-Vimes by kayananas Lady Sybil Ramkin-Vimes by kayananas
Lady Sybil, from Terry Pratchett's discworld series. I think of a woman who is aristocratic, large, motherly, down-to-earth, well-endowed, tall, and fierce-when-needed. I dressed her in an early Edwardian blouse to emphasize the formidable bosom, since that era had enooooormous chests: [link]

Love her character, and don't much care for Kidby's version, even tho his other character illustrations are amazing .

I don't much like Kidby's version, either - too much of the shocked-looking Valkyrie for my liking - but I feel as if there's something missing from this portrayal. Maybe she doesn't look tall enough? I always picture Sybil as a rather imposing woman ... I suppose I think of her as more serious, too, but I reckon I could be missing something extra that you see in her :)

"Imposing" - perfect word to add to my list for how I think of her! Indeed, I don't think I captured how tall she's supposed to be, so I do agree with you there. Pratchett always evolves his characters through the books, and I think she started out Valkyrie-esque, and is now I think more of a homebody, sweet large woman. The other thing that I want to improve is bigger bosom!

I'm glad to have added another word to your descriptive set :)
And I do think it's the impression of height thing that I think is missing, that's all.
Maybe the bosom needs to be placed higher, and that would make it appear bigger!

However, I can't draw a stroke, so I'll leave the artistic side of things in your capable hands. I'm looking forard to more from your pen/pencil/brush/tablet :)
