British Darwinist of the Century by jurodo British Darwinist of the Century by jurodo
I love me some Deryn.

Deryn Sharp (1899-1959), awarded British Darwinist of the Century due to courageous acts preventing international war under peculiar circumstances and her role in protecting fabrication research. Born Scottish, served British.

Yay for Deryn! Although I'm a little sad that she died before Alek, and that she didn't get as much backstory. I love the pose and the way you drew her face.

I just thought it would be ironic if Alec was the last of his close friends/relatives to live because he started out as such a naive character. Sorta sad, but...

Anyway, thanks!

Just whenever.

Actually I'm just a little surprised she was technically born in the 1800s.
