Ar makes a much more appealing model the Olive Oyl ever did! LOL! I never did see what Popeye and Bluto ever saw in that stringy chicken legged dame to fight over her they way they did! Even her voice could wreak havoc on your years! LOL! A most excellent contrast, Rod! I love it! Glad your art work has good remedial effects on your emotions! I know I have it to thank for mine as well. Take care, my good friend, and I wish you a most memorable and Happy New Year ahead!!!!!

Arawen looks pretty good as good old Olivia! 😘👌The look on her face made me think that she had finally put the spinach-eater Popeye down - Lol! Stay joyful, healthy and motivated for new Year to come dear Rod! 😊👍

What a great comparison! I personally LOVED Olive, because she kept the two warring factions in check! lol
Nice work Sir! Enjoy time with your family! Merry Christmas!

Brilliant! Her expression is priceless, made me grin nearly as much as her! Wishing you and yours a happy new year.

so one can carry on conversations on Twitch? (I'm ignorant, try not to laugh...) I'm glad you spent such time with them...and I'm sorry you've felt depressed. You've had one long year, Rod, but you picked it up with this great Olive Oyl rendition---you really caught O.Oyl's posture and her great costume as well. I love Ar's expression, like she's getting into this w/ real panache. Love the contrast of the two, and the decayed wall (right out of popeye---he didn't hang out in Palm Beach or Rodeo Drive, lol.). You've modernized Olive Oyl. Love it. (And tell me: Why was popeye so attractive to Olive Oyl? He had a voice that could break windows, he smoked constantly---and you gotta assume this WASN'T premium tobacco---he ate spinach out of a CAN, and he looked like one of the Bowerey Boys...I'll leave that question for another time, but frankly it irks me...) This is delightful, Rod, she's proud, a real model, and tongue-in-cheek.
I love that you watched old cartoons with friends, on Chrismas. You know what? I'm absolutely sure that if christ came back and saw you guys watching Popeye and Betty Boop and the Roadrunner, he'd forget his calling and say, "fugget christmas: Move OVER!" He'd plop down, eat popcorn, down a few beers, and watch the Roadrunner go "bee-beep!" for an hour and a half....I haven't commented much, but I'll catch up, I'm just slow now. (I've seen everything, I just haven't committed praise to paper yet.) Have a good last week of 2021: I'm sure you won't miss it when it's gone---I hope the next year is SO much better for you. Belated Merry Christmas! (Hey, and one day, you should have one of your women do Betty Boop..."boop-boop-a-doop"...)

Thanks as always for the wonderful insightful words, buddy! Yeah, I think whatever Popeye had in that pipe was a bit off the normal market stuff... That explains how he could blow into that pipe and make it sound like a steam whistle on a tugboat! LOL
Spinach out of a can.... GAAAAHHHH.... That's pretty disgusting stuff... Almost as bad as canned asparagus... That stuff is just nasty! 😆

She is a classic beauty... also has a really nice balance between her physical beauty and hints of her character. Excellent work on her pose, expression and her outfit!

Good lighting and posing. I think if Olive Oyl were like Ar, she wouldn't be the damsel in distress who's always waiting to be rescued by Popeye; instead Popeye would have a great companion who can help him take out Bluto anytime -- without spinach! :)

Really excellent! That's just hilarious. Nice job matching the outfits. Popeye always reminds me of distant memories of my dad when I was a kid. I remember time he'd come home during the day for a break or whatever and we would watch some cartoons together, mostly Popeye if we could. He would genuinely laugh at their antics from Popeye to Brutus, Olive Oyl and Wimpy.

Classic love this take on a classic character and pose. Never saw that Olive Oyl art before. It's always fun to do art with your own characters and established ones as well. Hope the holidays were good to you buddy.
