Linda Danvers by Dualmask Linda Danvers by Dualmask
Felt I've been spending too much time in Photoshop/Sketchbook and not enough time with pencil and paper so I drew this to loosen up last night.

Pencils, brush pen/chisel-tip pen, Copic markers on 8.5x11" card stock paper.

Supergirl/Linda Danvers DC Comics

Ok So.... This Isn't Bad! I Love The Comic Style! The Way You Inked Her In Is Really Good, The Coloring Is Good.

However The Waist Looks Very Skinny For Her Hips Even For Comic Style (It Could Be Just Me) But It Looks Off. Her Neck Looks Too Long o.o and Doesn't Fit The Pose Because Her Neck Looks Stretched Out O.o.... It Just Doesn't Look Right.Also Her Back Looks A little Too Masculine(Could Just Be Me) But It Doesn't Fit The Waist In My Opinion. Maybe It's Just The Waist Because If She Had A Bigger Waist It Would Just Flow Better. Other Than That This Is Excellent Work! Keep Practicing!
What do you think?

It's a nice, energetic look for her- I like her form and figure, and the sense of movement. The hair (especially the ends) is striking in movement.

Glad you like it! It was one of those late night drawings where you don't really see the flaws in it until a day later and you're more awake and coherent. There are some strong parts about it, but I could have done better.

my favorite SG costume. Overall, I'm liking this a lot. Proportions overall look fine to me for a comic image. Ultra realistic proportions just don't work imo. I think the legs below the knees could be a bit longer though. Superheroines just have longer legs. It's in the constitution. I've seen it. I think pulling the skirt up on the right leg so it is more parallel with the image would help a lot as well. it would add length to the leg and the skirt would'nt look out of proportion. Sexier too but that's just a personal bonus. Overall, I like the pose and image a lot.

Thanks! I think this teetered the fine line between comic style exaggeration and realism a bit too far. When I was drawing it I really wasn't as focused on the body as I should have been. Looking back on it, I do feel I should have made her shoulders more narrow, her neck shorter, and her overall height much less. But I'm satisfied with the overall look, especially the face, and considering I shaded it with only warm and cool gray Copic markers, the coloring turned out pretty nicely too.

I always liked this version, though, in the comics, she should be Linda.

Ah. Never really read any Supergirl comics... I know her best from her appearances in DCAU cartoons, hence the outfit choice.

Yes, Skaramine is correct. This would be Linda Danvers. Can't really recall how she got her powers. I think her dad was a cop and she was a troubled kid and then something happened. Too long ago to remember. Anyway, probably more info than you wanted....

Ah, in that case, a change is in order I suppose. You know me, I love to learn.

Yes. I'm sure other versions of Supergirl have worn it but Linda was the first.

Ahhh. Well, this costume in the comics came after S:TAS, so all is good. You drew her nice and curvy too. Yum.

There are some things off like her left hand and her head to small. But this looks like a quicky sketch so it's cool.

Well it was quick--took me maybe an hour, but quick doesn't excuse anatomical mistakes I don't normally make. Gotta refresh the ol' skills.

Her waist does seem a little thin and disconnected from her hips, and the colours are a bit messy. Nonethless, good study.

Well it's pretty tough to make those markers look smooth. At least for me.

I have to agree with the critique, but for somewhat of a different reason. Anatomically on her left side, the direction she is looking there is two indentations for the rib cage. I get that the first hump is supposed to be her lats, but the only thing about that is only the top part of anyones lats are visible from front angles so that area should be a lot shorter while the second hump (rib cage) should be longer. Her waist should be a bit wider for the style your conveying also. My only other gripe would be that if I drew a skeleton underneath I don't think her humerus, acromion , clavicle, and scapula don't seem like they would be joined, they are a bit to wide, or to far apart. The fingers seem a bit stiff to, her thumb should be pointed out and not bent, so should her other fingers. Hope I am not speaking to harshly, just want to help! :) (since I can't give official critiques)

It's all good, perhaps I could have been paying more attention to things while whipping this up. Nothing I don't know but I have to think more as I draw. Thanks.
