From the Doodle-Ma-Tron: Incomplete Lady

I drew this lady, but then I couldn't figure out how I should draw her arms and legs, and I thought about it for a while, and I tried various options, but none of them were to my liking, and then I just decided to let it be and post the drawing as is, incomplete, so doesn't that make it not just a drawing but a meta-comment on the process of drawing, transcending its status as mere illustration? That or I'm lazy. Hmm...

  1. Her total lack of concern for her missing arm -- and not just missing, but *blurry missing* arm -- is really freaking me out.

    1. You'd prefer if the arm was cleanly severed?

  2. Hands on hips, please!

    1. Yes, the word "akimbo" comes to mind. (I've only ever seen or heard that word preceded by "arms". All by it's lonesome, it sounds really funny.)

    At first I thought hands on hips, but now I think she might be giving someone the finger. But British style like a backwards peace sign, with one hand on her hip. Feel free to insert a cigarette somewhere in there. And she has a freakishly low voice.
