Mabel 'Ginger' Joliet 070612 by VinDeamer Mabel 'Ginger' Joliet 070612 by VinDeamer
EDIT: decided to color it woooo~

a better look at Mabel Joliet, Mallory's mother.

In the first pic I drew her during the time she would have still been with the French Resistance. She earned the nickname "Ginger" from her husband initially, but it was picked up by her comrades who often joked about how spry and "on-fire" she always was. It was a slight jab at the color of her hair, which was a dark shade of auburn.

Obviously her second portrait is a while after the war had ended, when her life transformed from the rough and tumble of war to the relative calm of being a housewife. Of course, being a single mother during a time when it was considered taboo doesn't make the transition to "normal" life any easier. :v

(I suppose I could slap a bit of basic color on this to make it come alive a little more. idk I really should get in the habit of coloring more of my art PROPERLY)

so yeah the date is different on this because I drew it several weeks ago but forgot to post it. oopies

She looks ever cooler in color!

Also, I noticed that you mentioned her being in a French Resistance. Is this going to somehow be related to Larousse, or a completely different story?
