A sad note...

This is running late even for me, but better late than never , eh?

Initially I wasn't going to do anything , but it seemed wrong not to note Michelle Nicastro's passing in some way. So I chose to do a request of my own.
Michelle Nicastro was the voice for Princess Odette in The Swan Princess, but oddly enough, even though she's known for her singing voice, she didn't do any of Odette's singing in the original film. The Swan Princessdidn't do very well in the theaters, but I know it meant quite a bit to a lot of people. In fact, while trying to refresh my memory as to what Odette looked like (you'd think after all the drawings I did of her I'd have her image ingrained forever in my memory) I came across quite a bit of fan art as well as several Cosplayers.  Once I started drawing Odette it all came back very quickly.

This suggestion was for the 1941 version of the Black Cat and since I've got kind of a thing for period superheroes and this one caught my attention.

Chun-Li is not character I know much about (other than the basics) since I'm not much into video games, but she'd been requested quite a few times and it seemed like it was time to do another video game character.

The Thundercats were actually a show that my oldest son used to like when he was very young and I kind of admired the animation in the opening credits. So this is my take on Lion-O though I'm sure it will upset a few purists, but hopefully not too much.

Awesome selections this week, Boss!
I'm still very sorry for the loss of Michelle, both to you, her family, friends and also fans.

On a happier note... I love your GA Black Cat. Chun Li looks awesome and Lion-O... Stephen Perry would be proud.

I think it's amazing that you take on so many requests each week for us fans. You're one heck of a machine when it comes to your art. You're passionate about what you do and it shows.

Know that what you do for us, especially for your FRF's... is so appreciated and awe inspiring. Especially to me.

But, great pics, mr. Steve!

Hi Steven,

Thanks for sharing from the heart.

While I usually enjoy your stuff and I normally spend time admiring it I have to say I'd watch your Thundercats show in a heart beat! I love his feral look and your take on his costume is greatness.
