This was done in my sketchbook with ink, markers and some acrylic.

Another warm up sketch. This time I changed the gender of the dangerous individual. Though I made her a brunette, I suddenly remembered some of the Alan Ladd/Veronica Lake movies I have on DVD. In case you are not familiar with the kind of movies they did together, they were the Bogey and Bacall before Bogey and Bacall. "The Glass Key" and "This Gun for Hire" are a couple of good movies with them. Though Veronica Lake always seemed like she could take Alan Ladd in a fight. :) And speaking of Veronica Lake, wow, she was hot. The first time I ever saw her was in the Steve Martin movie "Dead Men Don't Wear Plaid". I had to find out who she was. Not a great movie except in how they managed to put Steve Martin's gumshoe detective in scenes from classic film noir. Best scene ever: Martin with a young Kirk Douglas and a puppy. :) Check it out.
