Cos-less Cosplay

I hardly ever go onto MySpace these days, but a couple of weeks ago I went on to leave a birthday message for my nephew Jeremy.
While there I noted that my friend Wendy Potter had posted some pictures of herself as Queen Etherea from The Venture Bros. - one of the many villainous identies assumed by the masculinely-voiced Dr. Girlfriend/Dr. Mrs. The Monarch/Lady Au Pair - and I was suitably impressed by what a good job she did with the costume.
So much so that I decided that I should draw one of the pictures (which were taken by her friend Action Bastard) of her in costume.
Or, more accurately, out of costume:

I'm pretty pleased with how it turned out (and so was Wendy when she saw it). I put a lot of work into it, and used some new (to me) styles and techniques to get just the right look.

Fantastic work! I love the monarch on the pink background, it's the perfect touch. I'm really impressed by the shading, too. This is a great picture.
