    Hmm, I wonder how our ballerina ended up behind bars in Bunty Picture Library #12? Knowing girls' comics, she was wrongly convicted of a crime or kidnapped. The prisoner/slave story was always popular in girls' comics; in fact, it is one of the lynchpins in girls' comics. For that reason, 'ballerina behind bars' would be guaranteed a hit even today.

    @Raid71: I imagine it would be a difficult challenge for some people. But then, Daddy SI would want to set challenges that would be real challenges. He would want us to expand our experiences and imaginations. We always produce great results, whatever the challenge, and this one is no exception. I'm looking forward to seeing what else turns up before the challenge ends.

    You know, this challenge does take me back to when I was little and learning to draw. I used to draw ballerina figures by the mile.

    This challenge takes me back to when I was little and drawing people landing headfirst on the floor.

    Haven't been in here in a while, but I'm a sucker for ballet melodrama.

    So, @Pia served up a fastball right down the middle so fast it looked like no one could touch it and here comes @mojokingbee knocking right out of the park. As beautiful as all the other drawings have been, @mojokingbee's is the story I really want to read. Love the handcuffs.

    Is she secretly the Red Bee? :)

    Damn... so many talented people here. It`s almost embarrassing, but here`s my try at Lorna Drake who`s now a ballet assassin. It never goes very well as we can see in the newest issue of Bunty.

    @ Pia- too good! I like the possibly hate-filled instructor with the cane part the best
    @mojo- sweet, I enjoy your work more everytime I see it.
    @mecurial- wicked style, creepy
    @S. Madsen - what Beamish said and hilarious too!

    Wow, I haven't been around here in an eternity and it's cool to see that Remake remodel is chugging along. There's lots of inspiring art here. Good job, artists. I thought I'd take a swing at it:

    @RyanKelly, if we're continuing the baseball metaphor, I'd like to say, "Grand slam, old boy! Wot wot."

    The old-timey baseball player in my head has a mighty mustache and a British accent, I'm not sure why.

    Seconded. I don't speak baseball but that drawing is a winner.
