The Dowager demands her own series

I had a fantastic idea as I rewatched Downton Abbey the other night. Someone, no, Masterpiece Theater alone, needs to make a new mini series about Violet Crawley coming out as a young girl in the 1860’s. I drew this as a first study of Maggie Smith’s awesome face before I started drawing her with the gigantic mutton chop sleeves she describes having worn. Also, I kind of hoped my effort would somehow create positive energy in the world to push in the direction of the creation of said show.
