Sweat: Odessa Jerome....


A few weeks ago I paid an art student $14 to create the illustration you see above. 

Odessa Jerome is the antagonist from my soap opera, Sweat

While it's not quite what I had in my head, I think the art student did a fair job. 

Unfortunately, I ended up hiring a professional artist to create the cover art for Sweat. I just don't have the patience to coach anyone on the physical characteristics of black women (and honestly, as a black man, he shouldn't have needed coaching). So, the poor kid didn't get the job for the cover. 

Anyway, what do you think of the artwork and the character?
