This is a companion piece to "Nathan Appleby in Palette 37." I chose a warmer color palette for Charlotte, to reflect her personality, but wanted one with some cooler colors to represent that steely determination she shows when the chips are down and people need her. I absolutely loved the way Char Spencer played her, and I hope I've done her portrayal justice!

Thank you to [livejournal.com profile] alby_mangroves and [livejournal.com profile] amphigoury for their awesome art beta skills, and to [livejournal.com profile] rocknvaughn, [livejournal.com profile] jelazakazone, and even Charlotte Spencer (I'm still a puddle of goo over that one) for cheering me on. I say this every time, but it's still true; you guys are my village and it wouldn't happen without you <3 <3

This is beautiful. You captured Charlotte's determination and spirit so very well, and, as always, my eyes first go to the clothing and look for texture. Yours is exquisite!

Thank you very much! <3 It's drawn using the same brush (acrylic 2, if you're wondering), just in different sizes, but it's amazing how much of a difference that makes.

Beautiful, the limited colours really have a dramatic effect. Ot makes me think of those traditional painted movie posters. Oh, its a wonderful likeness.

Thank you so much, I do like the challenge of the limited palette. One of these days I'll get brave and choose one that doesn't have an obvious skin tone, lol.

Love it! I like how she looks mid-action. There's a lot of energy there, and it's fabulous. :D
