I think this picture would be good without the lighting.

But with it, and the first sentence in the description, it's gorgeous!

You know, I hadn't thought about the symbolic stuff... Truly, I do love me some religious iconography, all religions. The Catholics know how to do drama. :D But nobody beats Hindu for sexy!

Lol yah Catholics are all about the drama, eh? I didn't think you'd be religious cuz of these, though. Religious iconography IS interesting at the least. And gaaaah hurray for hindu! Ooh, and Egyptian. Murrrr.

This is so gorgeous. I love how iconic the imagery is here with bullets in a halo and the grenade around her neck. The lighting is perfect. :]

I've had a couple few girls write me and show me their Jenny hairdos! :D They all look so beautiful. I envy them -- I have curly red hair, and would look totally ridiculous with a softhawk. But if you can do it, and you want to? Go to it, girl!

I can't seem to figure out your drawings. Not what they mean or anything but how they're good. For most of my time on deviantart I've jugded whether a drawing is good or not based on how much white/blank space is still there, usually, the more white space the less effort and technique is applied, but your drawings have very little shading but yet are still amazing. I can't figure it out. I'm jealous.

lily-fox Featured By Owner May 3, 2009
Ha ha! I was like... aww, I think this is an insult. :D But thank you! And the positive-to-negative space ratio is definitely no indication of goodness or effort. I like pieces with a lot of empty space, because it leaves you room to think, you know?

I'm sad that she's growing out that sextastic softhawk :[ (I'm considering getting one. All these images of Jenny sitting around with it, you know?)

Man! Dude, I've been looking to portray a halo of bullets for a character's jacket rocker! You mean to tell me someone had the same idea....(sigh)...allright: compliments...right.

I like the grenade: I have a character who squeezes a grenade to her breast: a symbol of her holding back the chronic anger inside her metaphysically talented lover, the paper sparrow.
When he's at Gran' Death's vestibule, the grenade drops.

I think I've fallen hard for Jenny.

She's everything I want to be and wish I could be and more. She embodies strength and beauty and I adore the bullet halo. :)
I hope to meet someone like her in real life. Jude too. There can't be a Jenny without a Jude, or a Jude without a Jenny.

Lovely work.<3
