Cricket bat bar fight

A few questions. Why was she allowed to bring a cricket bat into a bar? Why is everything but her dirtied by the fight? How does she do up her jacket without a zipper?

This is a personal piece to get me away from just the overly sci-fi and fantasy settings I usually paint in. It was also a good chance to play around with a new brush and to think about the lighting in a different way to how I normally do.
