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 ...
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!
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! 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
