Like it VERY much,its the eyes that make her come alive really. The development of her lips and nose are also significant. And you use ...

A quick sketch of an idea I got off the news

Keeping the bears out of trouble, a little wrestling helps keep them occupied and out of suburban garages.  A few scrapes and bruises but nothing serious.

Bear Fighter - just posted a new drawing.  Hear about a city where the bear population has recovered so much that in the spring there are now occasional sightings in the suburbs and exurbs.  So was thinking this is a perfect time for the Amazons in our culture to intervene, protect the people from the bears and protect the bears from getting into problems in the towns.  So I imagined this area where the women and bears go to do battle.  Keeps the bears busy and out of trouble.  There would be a few injuries but nothing that wouldn't heal, so this was a quick imagining of that.  Threw a quick old style sketch together.  Still needs work, some rips and runs on her, and a background.  Just a start.
This alligator picked the wrong woman to attack this time, it will be his last attack too.
Ok, on the question of image sizes.  It would appear that to change the size on a lot of these early ones is going to require a rescan of the originals.  They were scanned at lower resolution because they were being sent and took too much space. 

Rescanning will take some time as the size in pixels goes up dramatically in gray scale for marginal increases in size.  The color versions (yes there is a color version of both stories) are even more of a space hog. 

I might have time next month to try and rescan but that's really an "at best" proposition as I'm backed up with stuff in my real world job, and with the Maya/Nuke modeling and rendering, and paid for stories that all have to take priority over what I give away for free.  So drawings and displays of free work is, as I hope everyone can empathize with, on an "as time is available" basis. 

Options, we can continue with what we have and then when it's practicable from a time perspective I'll add rescanning to the list of things I have promised to do, and scan in the color versions at a larger size.  The other option is I can use the time I'm using now posting to start on the scanning and I'll restart when that task gets far enough along to have enough material to start posting again.  I don't want to set up to do just one or two at a time, that is too much overhead.  

What is the consensus?  My suggestion is to go with what is available now and wait for the other later, but that's just me.  I know the outcome of the stories!  :-)   

The problem with me is, my schedule is so crazy getting time to get all this stuff done is beyond difficult so there's always the threat that I don't get to it when I think I will.  I guess I must be an optimist as everything takes longer than what I claim it takes!   

One problem with rescanning the Waterhole is the woman and bull fight for 51 panels before it ends, they go at it for A LONG time, so it's LOTS of scanning!

Male - 50s. Since a child I have wondered about the world if women were the more dominate characters. So my art has always reflected the female as the one with the power. And I like to study how the physically powerful woman can still retain her femininity.

Working heavily with Maya, Sketchbook, and 3ds Max, After Effects, Nuke to design characters for 3D photorealistic rendering, and compositing using Nuke, AfterEffects. The effort has been worth it but it's literally taken years to make the transition to these tools. The learning curve has been very STEEP and LONG, but the results are worth it. For display here and for quick sketching I use Photoshop. Translation between Maya, 3DS Max, Nuke and so forth is very challenging as they are Node based and AfterEffects and Photoshop are Layer based. I think Node based allows much more sophistication for creating realistic movies, but it's hard to beat Photoshop for sketching and creating digital art easily and quickly.

They are starting to mount up I fear!  Too many trips down KT22 at Squaw Valley, the bill for doing that run has started to come do, knees are just not what they used to be.
