19th Century Irish Rural Woman

Continuing on from the earlier Irish cottage illustrations, here is one of the women shown in the last image. Her character design is a combination of some reading and alot of visual research into clothing at the time, good thing about this period is there is loads of photographs in the late 19th-early 20th century of Irish women.

And yes, in case you find the pipe smoking hard to believe, there is a rare photo of a woman smoking from back then, so threw it in as I thought it fit her character nicely. The second imager is front, back and side of the same character.

PS it wasnt done for #Inktober's #Inktober2016 but it is in ink, so its the right month for it :)
