A few years before Stan Lee assembled the superhuman Avengers, this British duo took care of business rather nicely

I remember the Avengers!
Via reruns and Blockbuster VHS tapes(I'm not that old!)

Although Blockbuster VHS tapes makes me sound sorta old I guess...

Which one of the three is she supposed to be? Cathy Gale, Emma Peel or Tara King?
She does look like Emma Peel... is it Emma Peel?

I wanted to see if Diana Rigg would host Masterpiece Theater while wearing her Emma Peel costume. She'd have pulled it off back then. Nice tribute.

Diana Rigg still looks sexy in her late-70's.

The original 60's series was awesome - the movie with Uma, Fiennes and Connery was god-awful! It's like they just focused on the tongue in cheek element of the original show and then went overboard with it :/

I sort of got the impression they didn't know which era to focus on exactly - it seemed as though they wanted to do the Peel era, with the more over the top excesses of Tara, but some brutal realism of the Dr Keel era. As a result it was just bollocks...plus Fiennes had no chemistry with Thurman, unlike MacNee who seemed to have a great relationship with any of his partners.

Anyway, back to your art - very impressive :) Love it :D

YES. You sir win all the awesome. Great likenesses as well; you captured the essence of Steed and Peel marvelously.
