|The over-worked and under-appreciated Kate Corrigan.|
I think Guy Davis totally made the B.P.R.D characters his own, which is a big deal because Mignola has such an iconic style. I love his versions of Kate, Johann and Roger, they seem very tangible, especially Roger, who in Mignola's version is more of a stoic/tragic Frankenstein whereas Guy Davis approached him like a child in an adult's body.
B.P.R.D sometimes reaches moments of greatness, but its continuing mini-series format causes diversions from the main story (which actually evolves meaningfully which is a rarity in serial comics) which I find hit and miss.

<<< The rough version was more "on model", but the final version ended up being very stiff. I hate drawing faces front on, I get obsessed with making things symmetrical and lose sight of the overall look.
|Liz Sherman. Depressive|
Unfortunately, Guy Davis only drew the first half of volume 2 and left the series to work on his creator-owned projects. I follow artists rather than characters, so I've got the same problem as before; not knowing if I should continue reading the series.
I had this Liz Sherman drawing in my junk folder; it's another case of taking a decent rough sketch (this time in pencil) and destroying it with a sterile cleanup/inks. For some reason I just could not get the shadows on the hair right. >>>
