Here's a Dejah Thoris, Princess of Mars, sketch I did at FallCon in Minnesota. The owner is a friend of mine and artists Chad Spilker & Chris McElvey, so he always brings.... a scanner! So it was nice to get a scan and not just a 12 megapixel photo of the art.

The owner's wife nicely agreed to be my booth-babe while Allison was home sick, so I kinda gave him Dejah Thoris, both barrels, overdoing the sketch a tad.

He really appreciated the fact that I drew in radium globes (NOT Barsoomian slang for breasts) as well as omitting a navel, since the folks on Mars come from eggs. I don't make this stuff up.

Con sketches have really helped the ol' hand loosen up.

Darn. I just noticed my clever attempt at fontography has resulted in "A Princess of Maps", aparently.

Is she naked in the comic books?

i've never read the comics myself. but in the original books she is described as naked as all martians are. here is the expert describing her first appearance int he book

And the sight which met my eyes was that of a slender, girlish figure, similar in every detail to the earthly women of my past life... Her face was oval and beautiful in the extreme, her every feature was finely chiseled and exquisite, her eyes large and lustrous and her head surmounted by a mass of coal black, waving hair, caught loosely into a strange yet becoming coiffure. Her skin was of a light reddish copper color, against which the crimson glow of her cheeks and the ruby of her beautifully molded lips shone with a strangely enhancing effect.

She was as destitute of clothes as the green Martians who accompanied her; indeed, save for her highly wrought ornaments she was entirely naked, nor could any apparel have enhanced the beauty of her perfect and symmetrical figure.
