Female Neanderthal by Scrann Female Neanderthal by Scrann
Sort of not really accurate sketch of a female Neanderthal as described in the prehisotic novel series "Earth's Children", in it's first book "The Clan of the Cave Bear".

I think this looks quite accurate: the big nose and the protruding lips and forehead. Good job!

Who is this intended to be, by the way? Personally, it provokes Iza for me ^^
Even though they make out that she was quite aged in the book, so it's more likely to be somebody like Ovra, right?

Anyways, I really appreciate this image as I always found it hard to picture what they might look like, despite many other Neanderthal interpretations :)

Well, I didn't really have anyone specific in mind when I drew her. I was also kind of sorry I drew it without reading the descriptions one more time, cuz there are quite a few mistakes here, but this was drawn during a school lesson. ;P
But yeah, since Iza was the one who had the most impression on me as a character, it would make sense that there's a sort of Iza "Air" to her...
Perhaps this is what she was like when she was younger..? XD

Actually I was looking up "Neanderthal" and this came up, and my very first instinct, after seeing tonnes of pictures that didn't quite "do it" for me, was "Yeahh, now THAT'S how I reckon the Clan people would have looked!" and then when I read the description, I realized you were actually doing this based of the books!

Hahah yeah, a young Iza, I would call her :D
Nice work!

Well, you can dislike it all you want.

I, on the other hand, like it. XD
