The Blonde Marvel color version one by darrellsan The Blonde Marvel color version one by darrellsan
I tried some new stuff with this piece. I didn't ink as heavily as I normally do. I wanted to work at a higher resolution (1200 dpi) than my usual 600 dpi but it was too much of a drag on the computer, so I compromised at 800 dpi. I was hoping the lines would turn out smoother but I don't think it's noticeable. I colored it pretty much the same. As for the Blonde Marvel herself, I noticed that lately I've been drawing her skinnier and skinnier for some reason. So I reversed course and tried to make her into a BBW icon, lol. I replaced her armbands with long red gloves. GraphicBrat said there was a woman where he worked who wore her hair just like the Blonde Marvel, lol. That got me thinking that maybe after ten years maybe it's time Angela went a little crazy and rocked a new hairdo. Gotta stay ahead of the trends!

Great pic. Blonde Marvel has always been a BBW icon. I'm with Ued about the 'patriotic' uniform, sure it was a little corny but the stars on her nips added the to humor of it all as I've always seen Blonde Marvel as part comedy. I like the longer gloves but how about going sleeveless with the top and show a little more bare skin. I'm also with CD-B2 about the hairstyle, not much to it outside of it being longer than it's been in the past and you don't normally put a lot of detail in the hair so there's not much to it. Also as a middle age or near middle age woman longer hair doesn't fit the normal narrative, in my humble opinion but I think some of these hairstyles might. . .…

Maybe something short and spiky? 

But why in God's name are you working on digital art over 300 dpi?! You could work in or save as low as 150 dpi and it still look good. 300 dpi is standard for general print media. In all my years as a graphic designer I have never needed more. Anything over 300 dpi is generally for large scale prints (posters) that need it because the view is going to be looking at smaller details up close. If it's not going to be printed as a poster, then that extra dpi is a waste. The human eye can't even see 300 dpi let alone 1200. I don't want to even think about the lag you deal with on your machine work on those 600 dpi drawings, it makes my want to cry and toss a fit in empathized frustration. Which in the end when you reduce down to 300 dpi it gets the same result of other artwork reduced to 150 or even 72 dpi.

Basically what I'm trying to say is that the use of the end product (posting on line) doesn't meet the means of how it was produce (printed media).

So I tell you this as a friend, STOP IT!

Still, nothing beats the 'patriotic' uniform from mid-2000's.

Looks good. I'm not sure the resolution tricks did what you want them to but I do like the drawing! My jury's still out on the hairstyle.
