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.

We need an artist to do an Ancient Arab culture scene for our FaceBook game.

We are willing to pay 50% upfront after approving a rough sketch and the last 50% when you are finished.

Here are the details:[link]

Really dig this piece--I totally get you on the "badass sexy women" thing--it's hard to do right, but these kinda characters deserve it, IMO.
