Take Two: Sally by Res-Gestae Take Two: Sally by Res-Gestae
First version

I tried drawing her again without looking at my first draft. I'm not sure if it's better or worse.

I dunno the fic and how the character is supposed to be, but I like this version much more. The face has a very interesting structure and the whole body and expression are/seem to be very relaxed and... in balance and very content. What does fit the activities (Yoga?) from the first pictures.

(also: I really like that outfit... would like that top)

I want to do a decent illustration before I link to the fic since I'd feel bad if I messed up people's mental image of the main character. But if you want to check it out, it's called Paya's House. There is some sex and violence, but I think that's almost required for a Alien v Predator fic, y'know?

But I will warn you that the first few chapters take place in a "nursing home" and that was kind of upsetting for me, since a lot of sad memories about my grandpa popped up.

I'm pretty sure I have that top hiding somewhere >.>

First of all - thank you for linking - I tried Aliven vs Pred fics 2-3 times and always stopped very soon, since they where just written very... uninteresting and not so very... 'makes you read on-ish'. This one is quiet good, I already got to chapter 3, just on my way to work and back, I really enjoy it! :heart:

So now I also get why she is dressed the way she is, but I think I am not far enough to get her calmness you gave her in this picture, since right now she is rather stressed. BUT I think your overall picture of her is really good, can imagine her look like that :)

Hrm... wanna send me that top then? XD

AVP fics are almost always bad. Not even funny bad. Just did you seriously just write that bad. It's disappointing. There are a handful of good ones though. It's hard to find them and they're usually on permanent hiatus. Like Artistic License or Nature Vs Nurture. I have problems with those fics too but they have interesting set ups and original conflicts. Plus, the author willing to make the protagonist somewhat unlikeable, which I like. It means there's room to grow and change, y'know?

Yesss absolutely that... I thought until now, I just chose bad, but seems that there really are few nice ones to read... For now I am happy to have read this one, was at some point a bit too heroic for me, but well written~
I'll also try the others out, maybe they are neat, too, thanks for sharing~
