I'm making this as a print and a cover to my sketchbook in NYCC 09:)

It's weird how the sword and arm is very similar to my psylocke piece from 2 years ago. The pose is completely different but darn, It's weird.

mental note: I'm going to have to adjust how I draw female faces as my jaws are too prominent. My wife keeps giving me a hard time about it.

This is inks, watercolor, colored pencils and some pastel. some curve adjustments in photoshop:)

I think it looks great, besides some women have prominent jaws.

Hot. You're too hard on yourself about your women. I think your one of the best right now. Love the ultimate She-Hulk.

I kinda like a somewhat strong jaw on a female, but maybe I'm the exception. This is gorgeous!

I kinda like the proeminent jaws in your drawings. It gives a personal touch to them

wait a minute
is your wife suggesting that the jaw in this one is too prominent, too?
I think it looks PERFECT!
there's no general rubric for female faces at all. if you can imagine it, it probably exists

Now, this one I relly like. you deemto have a better feel for female form. Her face looks fine to me, some women do have more prominant jawlines than others. So long as this doesn't drasticly change from rendering to rendering of the same character, it becomes a non-issue.

Keep up the good work.

i agree with president nelson. Definately like you women's jawlines. I was only thinking the other day how much I liked the jawlines you did for Namora on the cover of Agents of Atlas numbers 6 and 7. Keep up the good work!

ahh...ive seen some supermodels whov'e had slightly (blocked jaws) i think its all about the curve though...(as opposed to coming to a point like on a man's jaw)
