|one of the best me and nei have done together and i think this image is now a classic in the zenescope universe|
my first time drawing this version of the white queen, and i enjoyed it. i think she is now my fav looking female character. i had a hard time coming up with a pose that hasn't been done before, and i dodnt succeeded cause i rather show her full frontal and more iconic than go with the story telling pose. oh well.
there are NO digital enhancements on this at all, this is exactly what it looks like in real life, and is %100 copic marker. if any of u have this blank, its my fav to work on (for future ref)
the metal was a pain, like always. it takes massive mojoing for me to get it just right which i never seem to do, but i try. i really like the sassiness in her hair and eyes, along with her shoulders.
if u have drawn black cat as many times in marker as i have, u would sick of doing black vinyl too. and here is Gwen showing up in 70% black. bummer. although her outfit isnt vinyl, it is very unique and that made it fun to draw. seems not many like drawing her in her mask, i guess neither did i. i HATE drawing straight lines, even with rulers i manage to mess up and this was no exception, i freehanded the whole background. bleh! at least with markers i can cover more surface faster.
i hope i get requested to do more of Gwen, id love to flip her ass upside down and such, not many females call for gymnastics and dynamic poses.
this is for sale
not much to say about this one. when asked to draw a sexy woman whom is a badass, like WW or tomb raider, there only so many poses u can put them in. typical squared shoulders to resemble power and strength in the stance. spine is always leaning forward to show confidence, vs the leaning back that represents retreating.
in this case i wanted to mix in a lil playfulness along side the power. shes wide eyed and smirking to let the reader "feel" like shes laughing at the bad guy cause she tried to warn him that she could kick their ass, but NOOOO, he didnt want to believe her. now shes gonna celebrate with some chilly cheese fries, and shes happy about it.
my fav part is the depth on her left side. i used up a 7 with the copics markers on some of the shadows and glove. depth is just as important as story telling IMO. my only regret is wishing i had her facing the other way cause that red shoulder guard blends with the her hair and obstructs the eye and looks like her shoulder is too short....sigh
this is me at a draw-off auction at wizard world texas 09|
there is a big room where all these other artist gather and mount up at an easel, and do there stuff....
i know im known for my hot chick drawings, but when holding up a piece of art for a crowd to look at u want to go with something that has more punch....this wolvie and batt piece scored the third highest bid after lee bermejo and marko dejurjovic.... which feels pretty good....and a local radio station that does comics and art interviewed me on this piece...which also feels pretty good...
