another commission i did at a show. i think it was san diego.
i hate getting request to draw powerful strong woman..it takes me out of my game....i can do sexy in my sleep now..but strong AND sexy???diff story.... i know its stupid cause its just a comic character that does not exist...but i like to capture essence as often as possible. and with girls like wonderwoman and red sonja, thier essence is power and being a badass, period. so, its harder to do as they are typically not smiling and in some kinda power stance. its particularly hard for me because i will not settle for this. she still has to be sexy in some way...a la anjolina jolie. why settle for one, when u can have both?
so to capture badass...(not the wolverine type where its more animal and furocious than power) i think superman. the spine is always straight up and down..chest up high and the head always leveled. if you tilt the head in anyway...even slightly, u lose power in ur stance. chin up is more majestic, chin down is darker more mysterious..as in how will i kick ur ass today??
this ones pretty straight forward and im kinda happy wih it. oh, and my first time using markers..if only for the background...need to practice.
