Dredgirl

This is dredgirl. Say hello.

Dredgirl here was drawn by Josh in MSPaint. He showed it to me, but then announced that he had no further plans to finish it. This horrified me, because it's such a pretty drawing and begs to be finished. So I took it and drew over it (again in Paint), spending an unholy amount of time finishing the drawing, to how she looked in my head. Dredgirl ended up being an accidental art collaboration between me and Josh. This is the result.

Now that I have completed Dredgirl, Josh has announced his plans to finish his drawing. He'll probably do a much better job than I did. This may or may not cause me to cry and not speak to him for a week. I believe he did this on purpose to torment me. He regurlarly makes the most valiant efforts to push me over the edge and into welcome insanity so that he can have my werewolf film collection. He does not yet know that I have ordered them all to be destroyed upon event of my death or mental breakdown. He'll find out soon.

Dredgirl says hi.

Yes I damn well know that her thumb is on backwards.

No I can't be bothered to change it.

Yes it is meant to be like that.

Yes I do know what human hands look like, I even have two of my own.

I am easily confused. and I got confounded by the shape of the original sketch. Leave me alone, I'm only small.

Down, down, down into the darkness of the grave
Gently they go, the beautiful, the tender, the kind;
Quietly they go, the intelligent, the witty, the brave.
I know. But I do not approve. And I am not resigned.
