Gentlemen start your engines

And may the best woman win! Ah I love RuPaul's Drag Race. Those girls are sickening! ;)
I felt like drawing something a little different after the Halloween theme and failing to colour the corpse bride. So drag queens is it and one of my many favourites from the show is Manila Luzon
I had one disaster after another with this picture but I think I managed to pull it together in the end. Seriously I could of cried the amount of times I made a mistake or something went wrong, like the nice pale green pen I was using to colour the background running out on me! Hence the rather dark green background in the finished picture. 
But I got there in the end and I hope you all like it. She's not the last drag queen you'll see from me. I am already working on the queen of them all, Divine. 

 Manila
As this was an A3 sized drawing I had to take a photo rather than scan. Some colour is lost in the face shading but as you know by now, me and photoshop don't get on and this was the best I could do. 

As always here's some work in progress photos. Poor lighting as most of my drawing is done in the wee small hours.

It didn't help that I've got a nasty cold right now and was trying not to sneeze over my work!

I shall leave you with Rupaul's ending quote
, "If you can’t love yourself, how the hell you gonna love someone else?"
