How does this work as Kathy?

I couldn't find any references of her eye color, so I kept to Nordic as Mike keeps saying.

I like the face and general look, except I always thought about Kathy as a bit stronger (more athletic, even a bit muscular) than that -- she usually can intimidate most people around her if she wants to, after all. And Ellen once described her (in the old "Tuck Season") as a "goddess." So, I was expecting a bit more in the arm & shoulder development. Not Wonder Woman by any means, but a bit more like a gym teacher.

Also, not related directly to this (although it might compensate in part the muscle thing), everybody always remark on how tall she is. Maybe something to give a sense of scale, like a door?


Don't call me Shirley. You will surely make me surly.

I like the drawing. Smile The long thighs do make her look tall, or perhaps since I was school photographer, I know what size the camera is. Smile

I always took Tuck's noise about Cathy as mostly exaggeration for effect. Short skinny Tuck sees tall Cathy as more than she probably is. Smile

Maybe a bit more muscle, I dunno. Smile

Hugs,
Erin

Given a couple of scenes where she was "picking" people who'd irritated her, she needs upper arms that show *some* muscle. Not bulging, but they need to be more "curved" than straight, I think.

Kathy is actually 6'3" to 6'4" (I'm still waffling) and about 175lbs (way too thick to be a top model).
And she's probably the best natural athlete in Tuck's circle of friends.
Hair color is dirty blonde unless she's coloring it (entirely possible; Jill is), and her eyes are Undetermined between hazel and blue (I'd prefer hazel, but I'd go along with a popular vote).

Remember at the end-of-school rave last year, or rather the morning after, she grabbed Tuck and was doing squats with Tuck on her back?

Interesting, Ellen -- thanks.

FWIW, I'd put Kathy at 6-3 max, based on her having found at least two guys who were taller than she was and (apparently) weren't totally insensitive jocks. I wouldn't expect there to be more than a dozen guys over 6-4 in a school with 500 adolescent males, and given prevailing attitudes among McAllen football players, I'd think almost all of them would disqualify themselves. (My mental image had her just under 6-2, which would have nearly tripled the dating field (from three to eight out of 250) back at my high school in '68.)

Hazel eyes are fine with me, if you're really looking for reader input on that.

Oddly, my eyes are an undetermined color somewhere between hazel and blue. Smile

If I wear gray or white, they look hazel. If I wear red or black, they look green. If I wear brown or pink they look blue. If I wear blue or green, they look grey.

I'd love to see more drawings/imaginings of Tuck characters. How about Mike?

Hugs,
Erin

We had at least two 6'6" fellows in my graduating class, which was about 170 people. Neither was especially an asshole... and I don't recall either of them playing sports, either.

Trivial point, since old Seasons isn't really a valid source for details any more. But Ellen does describe Kathy's eyes as hazel about halfway through it.
