A little Deja vu...

When I was much younger (back in the days of the dinosaurs, as my kids will tell you) one of my favorite authors was Edgar Rice Burroughs and my favorite story of his was the Princess of Mars. I used to draw John Carter and his Princess Deja Thoris even before I could draw something that resembled a woman. So when for three weeks running someone put in a request for Deja Thoris I mulled it over for awhile and desided to give her another shot. Usually I've drawn her in more or less an action pose (or ready to take action, at the very least) so I thought I'd try something a little different and try a pin-up pose. Not sure I quite suceeded, but it was worth a try.

I never thought I'd see the day Boss. I've seen your previous renderings of her and I love em all. This one holds a dear spot though. Thanks for sharing your talent, time and creative juices (in a good way) with all of us Boss! Looking forward to next weeks!
