A very good doctor by yokogreyword A very good doctor by yokogreyword
This is Dr. Clarice Maven from the STELLAR webcomic, Artifice by Alex Woolfson with art by Winona Nelson.
The comic is billed as an intelligent yaoi sci-fi story. It's one of my favorites now, due in no small part to the fabulous artwork. Winona is so good with faces that I've been too intimidated to try my hat at the characters. ^_^;

At the very core of the story it's a boy-meets-robot tale, but just calling it that doesn't do it justice. If you like sci-fi or yaoi, it'll be right up your ally, but I'd suggest it even if you don't. I am not a sci fi fan at all. When I see that label it usually means the bulk of conversation will be incomprehensible techno-babble. There has been little to NO techno jargon in the story at all.
Instead it centers on the characters. The writing gives you a really good feel for what their world is like, and leaves you wanting more details. And I love the comments. ^_^ I'm an active poster in what another reader called "a little comic book club beneath each page." In fact, as of my writing this, I dominate the #1 spot with 45 comments!! :D (I post as Enkidu there)

So today is my birthday and I swore I'd do some fanart for Artifice, but I didn't know what to have the two male leads be doing and one of them has REALLY close-cropped hair. It's a military cut, BZZZT! That is REALLY hard for me to draw.
So I solved BOTH problems by drawing Dr. Maven instead!! XD
She's a very insightful and witty character. It took a few pages to warm up to her, but she does seem to be as good a psychiatrist and therapist as she claims.
