Rachel's Blog: Illustration Friday - Balance
The first image that popped into my head when I saw this week's topic was Lady Justice holding her sword and set of scales. I deliberately removed the blindfold from my superhero interpretation as I think it's fairly impractical for someone wielding a sword. The hardest part was figuring out what she should wear. She went through several wardrobe changes; Robin-Hood-style, 17th-Century-frock-coat-and-rapier-style and Joan-of-Arc-style. Although her final costume is rather typical of recent hero-wear she seems most comfortable in this outfit. That and I have just finished reading Fray.
