Work in Progress:
Work in progress. I've got a bit stuck in the comic I'm drawing with this character. Her name is Senga the Jungle Girl. I'm 12 pages in, a few good jokes and no plot as yet - so to avoid dealing with my total lack of plotting ability I'm taking time out to draw a pin-up of her with copious armpit hair. Not sure why I'm giving her such luxuriant pits, but I was planning on having her have riotous underarm fuzz that would blow in the wind from the start - but Holly made me take it out on the grounds that it's "too weird".
A semi-naked Scottish girl living with an Amazon tribe of white girls battling Nazis deep in the African jungle is okay but armpit hair is "weird"? I don't understand kids. Mind you, they don't understand me so I guess we're even.
(Though I do have some sympathy for their position.)
Here's the (maybe) cover :
