PowerGirl , Alluring

This was a "for fun" drawing that I sketched out real quick because I had some Bristol board in front of me.  After that I HAD to ink it.  Inks were done with a Kuretake brush pen and Pental Pocket brush pen.  I love the latter, but it dries slow so I'm always smearing it.

How do you have such great picture quality? Do you scan your drawings into your computer or do you take pictures and then just post them?
tombancroft's avatar
I use a scanner and then tweak it in Photoshop.  Its the only way to go if you are going to upload stuff regularly.

Ohh, I see! Thanks for the info!

I recently threw some colors at this.
Would it be OK if I posted it (giving you full credit of course)?

Yea. I'd love to see it! -Tom

Very nice, how do you decide which lines to make heavier and which lighter? do you make a line heavier for the eye to be drawn to or just a balancing thing? really curious how you make you line weight decisions, I look to reach such level with my own line work. :)

In general, I try and weight (thicken) the line on the bottom to make it more weighted to the bottom, BUT, I'm not a stickler.  I also make the line thicker on the top of the head and around the cheeks, so I break that rule regularly.  
Dkundzinsh's avatar
So it's more a personal taste thing rather then a rule of line weight?

That's amazing line work.

Love the line weight. Do you have any line art tutorials you'd suggest to a young artist?
tombancroft's avatar
I'm sure there are some online.  I can't think of one this second though.

Oh, thank goodness. Nice to see Power Girl being drawn a bit more modestly.

Your the second person to comment that I made her less sexy.  I'm glad, it was worried I went too far.  Thanks.

No prob. Trust me, given some of the stuff both DC and the fan community have done to her over the years, this is a breath of fresh air.
Dkundzinsh's avatar
honestly I am completely OK with not ever seeing any cleavages ever, it's stupid and disrespectful in my opinion.
nightcrawlerfan19's avatar
Depends on the character. Women with looser inhibitions and more seductive natures, like Catwoman, Tigra, or Emma Frost, can make sense with it. But on the whole I'd agree; Power Girl in particular never acted like someone who would show cleavage unless DC was forcing her to.
