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. 

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?"


  1. You are so amazing!! such a great drawing. I love the colors and cant wait to see more!

  2. Sarah this came out fantastic! Wow at those red lips with the highlights on them-can't tell at all you had trouble with them. Love that end quote too :)

    1. Aw thanks hun <3 urgh those bloody lips! the red kept running into the teeth, but I managed to lighten it a bit with the white gel pen.

  3. YESSSS! Another RuPaul fan <3 Love this one Sarah!
