I was doing some stray scanning this morning of drawings done earlier. So thought I would post a couple of Jacqueline "Jack" O'Brien from the Captain Spectre strip. I have had trouble getting the right feel for this character. Probably because I don't draw very pretty women. ha. I always wanted Jack to have kind of a exotic quality without having her be totally helpless. After all she is a damn good pilot, an adventuress, with sort of a shady past. Anyway I think I was getting a bit closer with these drawings. Actually the 'dressed up' version was a warm up drawing I did that just developed into Jack. I know lately the strip hasn't had too many appearances of the other characters, and I kind of miss them. As always I just wish I could do nothing but Captain Spectre strips so I could use all the ideas I have for the characters. Anyway in the place of an update this week, which I will explain in another post this weekend, enjoy Miss O'Brien.
