Southdown Abbey

At AFK Drink and Draw:  Finally, a model from a fandom about which I know lots of details.  Of course, it helps that she’s a friend of mine!  This is Amanda, dressed as Sister Charity, OSC.  With the apron and overcoat, she becomes a nun of Southdown Abbey.  This is from Firefly.   Shepherd Book, one of the main characters, is a priest and comes aboard Serenity after leaving the Abbey.

Starting with 2 minute sketches:

Moved on to about 5 minutes and I used a bit of watercolor pencil and wash in the sketchbook.

The reference to a strawberry is from a particular episode of Firefly.

Finally, a sketch in watercolor in the good Pentalic Aqua watercolor sketchbook.

Oh, and the service dog is Griffin.

Then we had CAKE! for Stan’s birthday.  Thank you LJ and Happy Birthday, Stan!

    I think it is rare to get to sketch someone dressed as a nun. Nice!
