Armando's Challenge WIP Peixeiras #2

I wanted to show the girls as rough, dirty, old and young, I know very little of these women or of the area they come from, most of what I referenced, was in language's I do not understand, but even still I felt how hard life must be for them and upon them physically, so off I went with my version of Armando's wonderful Idea and Original work.

WOW I can't believe the whole day is gone, I did get more pens and continued working on it to this point.

I'm sorry I haven't gotten back to anyone, it's just... well as you can see above, I was kinda busy, I think I am a bit of a details freak, LOL.

OK going to work on color version now.
