This actually began as an illustration for fan fiction
by Amp Muse
(alias Hemlock Trinity). Yes! Zebra Girl actually gets fan fiction
! Well, used to, anyway. It's been some years since I've gotten any, which is tremendously damaging to my ego and depresses me to the point of uncontrollable weeping jags, especially since the stories I got were so damn good! And this was one of my favorites, a crossover between my work and the great Mike Mignola
's Hellboy, a series I've followed and been inspired by for a long time. I think both my characters and his were expressed very well in Amp's story, and I still hope that she'll finish it someday.
At any rate, trying to draw in someone else's style is a great exercise. I did the same thing for Jhonen Vasquez
, but that's another story
. God, I miss getting fan fiction.
