red sonja sword by ebas red sonja sword by ebas
another commission i did at a show. i think it was san diego.

i hate getting request to draw powerful strong woman..it takes me out of my game....i can do sexy in my sleep now..but strong AND sexy???diff story.... i know its stupid cause its just a comic character that does not exist...but i like to capture essence as often as possible. and with girls like wonderwoman and red sonja, thier essence is power and being a badass, period. so, its harder to do as they are typically not smiling and in some kinda power stance. its particularly hard for me because i will not settle for this. she still has to be sexy in some way...a la anjolina jolie. why settle for one, when u can have both?

so to capture badass...(not the wolverine type where its more animal and furocious than power) i think superman. the spine is always straight up and down..chest up high and the head always leveled. if you tilt the head in anyway...even slightly, u lose power in ur stance. chin up is more majestic, chin down is darker more mysterious..as in how will i kick ur ass today??

this ones pretty straight forward and im kinda happy wih it. oh, and my first time using markers..if only for the background...need to practice.

Really dig this piece--I totally get you on the "badass sexy women" thing--it's hard to do right, but these kinda characters deserve it, IMO.

Awesome job. Very dominating.
I remember dressing up in a chainmail bra and pantyhose type bottom for Halloween. I was so frickin' cold that night, and the metal was frozen to my chest completely. It was snowing and I was miserable. It seem like such a good idea at the time.

Another great drawing! :party: I love -to see and to draw- this kind of characters, sexy and strong women in armor... armors??? what the heck!!! The armor is just a decorative part in this kind of drawings :D but no way if they must be sexies, tons of metal and leather will not work :rofl: !!! This one goes to my faves!!!

It's a great image and I love the way you've drawn her, though with Sonja, I never really understood why they bothered with the armor at all...since it wouldn't protect her from ANYTHING anyway. *lol*
