Striking Sphere '13 - COPICs by Dualmask Striking Sphere '13 - COPICs by Dualmask
A quick doodle I did of one of Jet Dancer's enemies, then I did some basic Copic marker shading on it. Ref used.

Her boobs weren't supposed to be that big, but...on the flip side if they were any smaller, that "top" couldn't believably hold them in place. =p

For a quick doodle it didn't turn out all that bad- the copic shading is a bit rough, but I think it suits the "feel" of the image. Not everything needs to be super smooth!

You're absolutely right. I've been getting away from the need to have crispy-clean line art lately. Thanks!

Interesting and unique design! I like the sort of "futuristic sports-gladiator" look.

Thanks! I figured her using a ball as a weapon lent itself to an athletic theme in her pose.

SO much sexy goodness here. I'm going to fan art her...again.

Well to be fair, you just kind of edited a picture of her last time. ;) Love to see what you come up with.

Those eyes... again, I find something with one of your drawings that catch my attention. Based on the fact that I'm aware of Jet's design, I sense that there is some relation to the two characters here (outside of the fact you've already mentioned that Sphere is Jet's adversary). I won't hazard too strongly of a guess at the moment, but as usual, I suspect you colored the eyes for a good reason.

Trying to wrap my head around Striking Sphere's design in terms of her capabilities. Looks like she has some pseudo-soccer thing going for her, but I can't say that with absolutely certainty. Visually, I must say that her abs jump out at me more than her chest does, though. At least her 'outfit' of choice shows that she takes her physical fitness seriously enough for the task. =P

Nicely done. :)

Thanks! I wrote a whole story that breaks down the relationship between Jet Dancer and Striking Sphere (and others like them), and admittedly, it's a lot simpler than one might suspect. A part of me wants to tell that story, but another part of me isn't quite sure I either have the fortitude, or the interest, in drawing a whole comic about it. And Jet Dancer doesn't really seem suited for a prose novel, so...I don't know if it's ever going to see the light of day.

Maybe if I make a game...

As for her abilities, SS can hurl or kick the ball at precision-calculated angles and trajectories in order to hit her target and have it ricochet back to her, and it emits a charge on impact which has destructive capabilities. The specialized glove she wears doubles as a remote to call it back in case something goes wrong. Kind of silly, but...I was in a silly phase when I made her and my other "Sensual Weapon" girls up many years ago. =p

That's why part of the reason I didn't want to make a guess. It's the kind of thing you actually want to see materialize, as opposed to making predictions as to what can happen. Even if it is "simpler," there's still a potential to be surprised this way.

As for her abilities, the idea really doesn't sound that bad at all. I envision it as a boomerang-like technique that's able to generate enough force on impact and/or has magnetic features that makes it useful only for attacking, but returning to Striking Sphere. It's a bit physics-defying in that sense, but pretty cool.

Hey, the idea's in place, so there's always the chance to refine things as they go along. Plus, I like the sporty element that goes with it.

I've always liked her design. Actually made her up before Jet Dancer...but Jet was cooler so she became the hero. :D

So does she have a bodysuit on or are those straps what she's got?

Straps. It's a skimpy outfit.

Awesome! I had a character with an outfit like that, had some really nice art done of her, even though it skirted a couple of lines of different levels of appropriateness XD

I was thinking of coloring this one digitally at first; might just go back and do that so folks can see just how barely-dressed she is. :D

As long as it's on a female, I'm all for seeing a strappy superhero outfit! ;)

Heh, certainly! [link] The story behind her costume is that in the same way that Superman absorbs sunlight to fuel his powers, she constantly absorbs ambient magical energy through her skin. In ancient times, persons in her bloodline would wear even less than she does, for maximum contact with natural magics. She uses the magical energy to fly and cast spells, or simply compress it into bolts that she can blast at villains. If she's cut off from the natural magics by being covered, she quickly uses up what she's already absorbed and won't be able to fly... She's less worried about Yellow Power Rings and more worried about having tarps thrown at her!

Absorbing energy through the skin...that's a great excuse to design a skimpy outfit if I ever heard one. :D Great design!
