Erica in pink by lily-fox Erica in pink by lily-fox
Sometimes I get the urge to draw fashionable girls. I would wear this, except it would take a miracle to get me to tuck my shirt in.

Her name is Erica. This might be a wig, but I don't feel like she'd have any special reason not to dye her hair. Erica was working at the Wetzel's Pretzels in the mall when Jenny met her and gave her her phone number. Erica was too shy to call, but Jenny kept showing up, so charmed by Erica's lousy posture and sleepy-eyed smile, and eventually she gave in. They would hang out together, make out on the beach, concealed by a giant umbrella. Erica liked best to do lazy things; stay at home and read, watch crap telly, roll around in the grass at the park. The one thing she was really passionate about was taking photos with a small collection of old film cameras she inherited from her dad. Somewhere there are two or three albums of photos of Jenny being lazy and frequently naked. Erica holds the distinction of never having made Jenny angry for any reason.

I'm not sure where Erica is on Jenny's timeline, but probably between Lucas and Cheval. In her west coast era.

Cute. I love her posture and some of the foreshortening and stuff you've got going on here. I'm also a fan of how you've rendered those joints. For some reason I love little quirky touches like that, especially in more realistic styles. I do a little swirly thing a lot on elbows and knuckles n' such myself.

Hmmm, I wonder if anyone will ever run across those photos.

Some people seem to really dislike when I do random circles on cheeks, noses, joints, but I really love it. After all these years, I've decided I'd rather do what I like than what everybody's used to. :D Right? That's the only way to fly.

Weird thing is I have a blouse just like that...and I actually tucked it into a pair of shorts. You are an inspiring fashionista.

There's something so lovely and gentle about this character of yours. I feel as though she's the perfect embodiment of a lifetime well spent. Reading these little snippets remind me of a saying I once heard. "Let not your heart be troubled, niether let it be afraid. Open your heart as you open your hand, and what a world this will be." I hope to never live in a world without people like Jenny, who love fearlessly and without expectations. To love, just for the sake of loving someone, you know?

AHHHHHHHHHHHHH! I've been hoping you'd post something Jenny related. Have you seen So You Think You Can Dance? A girl, sadly who got eliminated last night, immediately made me think of her.

LOOKIT!:

I couldn't find too many pictures of her, but there was a point where she even had the spiky short hair rocked, and I was floored. She's absolutely adorable, and a bit of a tomboy. ^.^ Seeing your art again makes me giddy!


As for the actual picture here, I FREAKING LOVE THE CANDY PINK HAIR!

You know what I like about her? She's badass but in a quiet sweet way, which is what I can see drew Jenny toward her. My only question is, why would Jenny leave?

I love your style Lily, in art and in writing. <3

The question of why Jenny leaves (or is left) is always a tough one. Because, you know, you never enter a relationship planning the exit, right? But sometimes it just don't work out. Jenny's pretty fickle and hard to get along with.

Glad you like this!

I think you'd love it, it's about the different niches people put themselves into, and the ones society tries to force you into, and rising above those labels. The manga goes much further into the show and is still in production, but is harder to find.

Probably only when her story's over. There's a loose timeline right now, but there are a lot of holes. Maybe I should write up a bio of what I've got so far...

Her pose is so expressive and utterly adorable! I like her inclusion to Jenny's story very much. I keep looking at her sneaks & those calf muscles! You manage to capture the human form so well, and poses that look so effortless (although I'm sure they aren't) and real.

For some reason, I dont know about this timeline, but I love the drawing. Is this a new way of doing shadows, with the more solidified points? It's a small thing to really admire, but the way you drew her shoes is brilliant!

You should mess around more often thin. You always seem to do clever ways to shade or add tone.
