The Flocco is an artist that I recently started following and admiring. Last week he posted on Facebook about having a sale on commissions. I promptly leapt at the opportunity and commissioned a piece depicting a battle ready Ramona. Bad Blood Rising has female characters too and I try not to conform to stereotypes when working with characters unless it is a critical component to the story. Even then, I like to have other less stereotypical gendered characters in order to provide some contrast. When I write about powerful female characters I prefer people to think, “That is a badass character!” not, “That is a badass character…for a girl.” Anyways, here are the drawings. Flocco ended up finalizing two of them while he was trying out different poses.
