I actually like the way the gesture drawing turned out, although it feels very much like a luck thing, I need to do a bunch more like that. The inking took so long! I am so slow! and, although I think I got a pretty good read on her body (besides meaking her arms a little too thick-set), her face doesn't look anything like that. I was a bit stuck on whether to caricature it and ended up just doing something placeholder. She actually has super asiatic eyes, which are partially obscured by the hair but I think I was on the way to getting that right.
Other than that she looks a little butch, but definitely not like a guy! A mild success. Tomorrow - less talk, more gesture drawings.
I'm not posting the reference photo for this one, because I'm embarrassed about how different her face looks.
