Eventually, Smith didn’t have much choice but to do it, and the result of all that pressure is one of the purest examples of graphic narrative and visual comedy committed to the page.
Smith has claimed she’s the hardest member of the cast to draw, and one might be tempted to chalk the evolution of her appearance up to his discomfort with the character, but I’d say there’s too much story motivation to the changes to consider them mistakes.
The work Smith puts into her close-ups (the most extreme close-ups of the entire series, up to this point) is grueling, and you can almost see her growing up as tears flow over cheeks and her face contorts in anguish.

 Dear Jeff Smith from Dave Sim
That's the really infuriating part of this whole business, Jeff: your assertion in the interview that you presented me with this "challenge," and "everything got very quiet" and then you proceeded to "enjoy your weekend".
You were calling me a coward who backs down from another man's challenge to settle things man-to-man. And then you compounded your insult by portraying me as a weasel who would stay under another man's roof after having backed down from that man's challenge to a fight.
I would expect nothing les of the unfairer sex and their allies and I knew that was the inevitable result of declaring myself to be "not a feminist" in an almost wholly feminist environment.

Smith also puts together clever set pieces, such as the Great Cow Race, where Phoney introduces a "mystery cow" — actually Smiley in a costume — convincing the locals to go for this sucker bet over the favorite: Gran'ma Ben(!).
Smith achieves this principally through his near-prodigal cartooning talents.

Though Smith took time away from the regular book to re-edit and re-draw Bone for the collected volumes, do art for the prequel Stupid, Stupid Rat Tales and script the second prequel, Rose, there can be no doubt that the amount of time wasted on the doomed Bone movie adaptation was largely to blame.
What makes this chapter so brilliant (aside from the introduction to Smith’s gorgeous artwork) is the way characters are meticulously placed into threads that, in some cases, won’t end for another 12 years.
Much has been made of how Smith was basing his story off the style of Lord of the Rings (before it was cool again, no less) and it’s easy to recognize the device of beginning a story with lovable little creatures who find themselves in an adventure greater than their wildest dreams.

Dorkin's one of the funniest cartoonists in comics, and I think this is going to prove that no matter what the subject matter, he's always able to triumph.
