The Five Stages of Mourning

Yet another piece done for a thread on the Drawing Board. The theme for this month's "Girls" jam is "The Five Stages of Mourning" (denial, anger, bargaining, depression and acceptance). I actually did this a few weeks back and have been sitting on it until the jam started.

Obviously I chose to illustrate the Five Stages using my ever recurring character, Jennifer. Her little pal Bueno apparently sat this one out. Enjoy!


To save space, here are text links to the pencil prelims of each individual drawing from the above montage:

And here are text links to individual finished drawings from the above montage:

I didn't want to think you did this piece without telling me. I MEAN WHO DO YOU THINK YOU ARE, ASS?!?! I would give ANYTHING to make you go back and tell me. ANYTHING. Now I just live a dull, meaningless, and worthless life. I exist. Nothing more. But I'll get over it. Nice Piece(s)!

Thanks for the comments, which are always appreciated.

dick!: I didn't realize seeing advance artwork from me was that vital to your daily existence. If it's any consolation, I personally got to see the art as soon as I finished it, and that fact really hasn't affected my life for good or ill, so I don't think you missed out on much with the extra month's wait.

I will assume that you got the joke, but because of the last comment, I'll clarify that I was "acting" (read:typing) out the 5 stages. I'm so clever? Maybe?

Well, well, well. Slap a shell on my back and call me slow! While obviously I knew your comment wasn't serious, I didn't even catch that you went through the five stages. What can I say. It was a long day at work, and after work is when I saw it. That is my excuse. I get it now though. For really!

Hi, I'm just a random person on the internet who you will never know or see or even hear from again.
But just thought I'd say; Awesome work. Really like it. Keep it up.
