Made this today for a 4chan thread.
Best to leave it obscure, I guess ;-)

I saw the preview on Yungbluth's own DA favorites pages, and I thought the text would be the lyrics of "Janey's Got a Gun". But this works too.

"What did her daddy do?
It's Janey's last IOU..."

I love the look in her eyes.
Clarissa should have a happy ending, but just like in real life this will never happen =\

This is really well drawn. Also, I'm surprised there isn't more "Clarissa Vengeance" on DA...

Good job. I love this pic. I hope this is the last pic of her tragic comic strip ... or someone saves her, and she cracks a genuine smile for once. Now THAT would be powerful.

Knowing both the context of the quote and the history of the character, I must say, this makes for quite powerful imagery indeed.

Absolutely. The original author should draw a final page, I think, giving it a good end after all. Her leading a happy, non-traumatized life and her dad locked away for life.
But maybe that would be a bit to sappy...

I saw a single panel of her being led off by police to on car, he dad shouting at the police kicking him into another one :P but you know nothing that good will ever happen for her.

Considering the few comics we've seen with her, adding in the strange feeling you get throughout, I think the quote fits this very well. It makes for a powerful crossover, and a vengeance that she finally gets to have after that through which she's been.

Those that only know the movie will get the quote and may just be satisfied with that; those that know just the comics will assume vengeance; those knowing neither are at a loss. But, for those that know both, this makes for a pretty strong image.

You did a fine job with this one, I have to admit. It's almost...well, not "scary," but "intimidating," I'll say.

Thanks for the share.

I had a rather uncanny feeling drawing her, actually. Staring into those eyes while pencil shading it gaves me the creeps myself...

I think it's all a work on perception. So many here or on other places have drawn things, written things, watched things, or even heard things...yet, when the perspective comes at you from a different angle, the look is one that's creepy.

Hmm...I hope that made more sense than it looks; if not, let me know.

Anyway, you're welcome.

And Baby Doll reminds me of Darla Dimple from "Cats don't dance"...
(hence the theory that she's a midget as well - which I don't buy).

Even with the "rough" nature of the pencil work it's a terrifically clean and well-defined picture. It's a great (nearly) straight-on view of the poor abused little girl, and even with that piece in the center drawing so much attention I can still enjoy (I guess) the hatred in her face as she prepares to get vengeance for some picture someone did. ;)

I do have a few things to pick on: First, in my opinion, the wall of text detracts from the picture itself, especially how it weakens the apology text below. Then there's the shading for the inside of the barrel... Perhaps it's unfair to get picky about it with the rougher style you used for the overall shading (to great effect) but it looks too much like a dark ball stuck in the end of the barrel. Maybe a curving streak would look better, or maybe not. In reality it's probably too dynamic, and if I could easily get a piece of metal pipe to try different lighting positions on then maybe I'd even see exactly what you have. So take that with a grain of salt.

Still, those are dumb things. It's an awesomely composed and executed picture, and I truly am impressed by the details while the penciling makes her seem a bit dirtier and angrier. (Her hair looks amazingly good that way.) The foreshortening is fantastic, and giving the piece a slight tilt while putting Clarissa a bit off-center to match worked out beautifully and gives it more believability. And yes, I do have to add that I'm thrilled that you drew such detailed hands. :)

It was originally meant as a 5 minutes quickie for some /co/ thread, but drawing the gun and the hands took so much concentration that I decided to give the whole thing some more attention than usual.

And I like to think she's pointing that piece at her abusive dad, not at your truly ;-)

Fairy-Slayer Featured By Owner Jun 5, 2010
If she is aiming at her dad then let us hope that she's just getting him restrained so she can do to him what he truly deserves. It involves Pauly Shore movies.
... and using his urethra as the DVD player. :threaten:

Better yet: "Sorry Daddy, they only had VHS."
