    The Unnatural Redhead
    An E. G. Brownstone Mystery

    Attachment 599126

    Chapter One

    My client's late and probably not lamented husband had given his heart to the wrong woman. Literally.

    Skewered to a pentagram drawn in his own blood, he looked like he hadn't ended his affair happily. The blade was of a type I didn't recognize, maybe a custom job. Leave that for the cops to track down. I was more interested in the glossy strand left behind. Crimson it was, no natural shade, and not one out of any bottle you'd pick up at the five 'n' dime, either.

    It didn't take long to get a reading. Tall, lithe, with eyes so dark they could drink a man's soul and a figure to die for (and many have, I thought), she was in the midst of a conjuration. I wondered how someone with that kind of power could be careless enough to leave behind such a telltale. Then the faint smirk on her scarlet lips gave me the answer -- it was a calling card, left for me, and only me, to find. I doubt if the crime lab ran its DNA it would even test human.

    Looked to be an interesting case...

    heres my final, first time coloring from some grayscale on up... I really had fun sketchin this one up... the leg brace action was brought from the idea of getting into it with some supernatural beastys that took E.G.B. for a bit of a ride.... and the stomach grill.... kind of the idea that he could trap spirit types much akin to ghostbuster traps with his own body.... fantastic entries all around!

    My take on Edmund G. Brownstone, paranormal private eye. I wanted him to stand in contrast to the supernatural world he lives in, a hardboiled, stoic and completely capable detective that relys on his sharp wit, knowledge of the occult and, of course, his trusty S&W .357 Magnum. I hope I've improved since my last entry, as Deadred pointed out to me, and I've noticed too, that my skin looks rubbery and fake. I think this looks a little better. I used a mirror for the hand w/ the cigarette and a reference photo for the gun.

    Here is my final............I didn't have much time for finishing it as always.....but it was really fun and I could learn a lot by trying to fix the perspective and with the comments and critics.....
    This was a great round......with a lot of amazing entries....
