Five years, five years after I drew the girly version of the Spirit Mars rover (http://atomicpanda.com/galimage09.html) I've started on Opportunity or "Oppy" as JPL refers to her on the MarsRover Twitter account they've set up.

Spirit and Opportunity pretty much got their personalities from the two LJ accounts that pretended to be by the two rovers way back when. Neither is still updated. Five years is a dang long time to write a pretend rover journal, especially since the rovers were only supposed to last 90 days. Anyway, if you missed it they were http://opportunitygrrl.livejournal.com/ and http://spiritrover.livejournal.com/

Spirit came across as more, I dunno, angsty (she had a harder time than Opportunity) and Opportunity more perky. So, I dressed her more... I don't know if 'prepy' is the right term but a lot less Hot Topic than Spirit. Also thought I'd throw in a slight nod to Botticelli.

Anyway, think I might ink it in Flash. Been meaning to practice doing that. Or, I dunno. Maybe I'll do it traditional so I have something I can sell. Heck, both?
