Superheroine Sidekick by phantastes Superheroine Sidekick by phantastes
Trying to create that ultimate superheroine image.
I can see a thousand flaws in my surface anatomy.

I think she's awesome. If you just reduce the most outer belly line that runs into the leg it would be great. The line angle needs a little more tapering to give her a real sleek look. Otherwise a big ... :thumbsup:

THanK YoU so much! I'm just restarting to draw Marvel-like superheroes but I'm making them look a bit bulkier because I need to learn my surface anatomy. I really like to try the tapering look without losing their muscle tone :)

The Marvel method is truly iconic in modern day illustration. It's been that way for 60+ years now, and it absolutely works! I like the fact that you want to blend your own creative input into this method, and I've seen some of your other work and I think you have alot of very good elements to your style that you can bring to your superheroes. I like that fact that you want to keep the women a little more intimidating in their look, but maintain their feminine grace. Here's a sketch I did of Marrow(X-men)in 2009. [link] She's a little "butchy", but I certainly wouldn't mess with her! It's all about symmetry, balance, flow, and your are dead on - how the human anatomy all ties together! Looks great - keep it up! :thumbsup:

Thanks for the kind words! Marvel and DC really set the standards. Despite the many movies being made from them, what I really miss was those Sunday comic strips. Your work has good pose and clean, clear lines - it would be awesome if you could render it in color ;)

Thank you. Yes - I have plans to color it and put a basic background in for depth, but color is not one of my strong suits. Maybe you can make some suggestions in how you approach colorization - I could defintely use the help. Thanks again! :)

While the initial pencilling takes a lot of effort, putting colors can easily and dramatically be done with programs such as Photoshop or GIMP. See for example the works of Saimain [link] who uses only a basic Photoshop 5 and her trusty Wacom tablet.

I think you did a really good job! The only things I can see are that the lines in her thigh need to be one smooth long stroke (rather than all bumpy) and her right eye, closest to us, is a little too far down to the left. Other than that, perhaps make her breasts more of a realistic shape, and it would be just about perfect! I really like the way you did her arm and hair. :)

THanK YoU for pointing out my major flaws but at least you like those parts that women cherish most! :dance: The quadriceps should look stretched in one smooth line but I'm trying to separate the vastus medialis (one of the quad muscles) from the rectus femoris. I try to tone up muscle groups without losing sight of the feminine curves, so my future female hero characters will not look stereotypical :)
