Just a little update...

It's nice to hear all the positive reactions and interest in 'the project'. This time of year not much usually happens as far as decsions go so we're hoping that something will happen in January. In the meanwhile I thought I'd share another commssion. I assume everyone will recognize Power Girl.

I've never drawn her before and I knew very little about her except what I saw from Adam Hughes. My drawing is not nearly as good as any of his, but whose are. AH! is easily the best artist working in comics today. And it 's not for the obvious reasons...I love his faces

It's interesting to see your interpretation of other characters. Power Girl has always made me giggle.

And I wouldn't say it's not as good as and AH! drawing- different sure, but that doesn't mean it's less good.

I was wondering, as an animator, how do you go on about doing a finished drawing, i mean there is this thrill of sketching with gesture and movement that can be easly lost if you ink over it or even color digitally and that deals great pain to the concept itself. So i wonder, how do you save yourself the hit? Its hard since in some circumstances an employer might ask a finished marker drawing or any other medium but as an animator its rare to have to "finish" a drawing, right?

Thanks Blaze, but in my opinion AH! defines Powergirl and so many others.

Mokuu...I rarely do a tight CU. It's a whole other discipline that I'm not really capable of anymore so I usually hire someone who's really good to do it for me when it's absolutely necessary (and within the budget). Otherwise I just do a tight rough and clean it up a little in PS like I did the Powergirl. That is actually a little rougher than i normally work, but once color line is used it tends to pull together pretty goo...I think.
