    To be fair, the brief phase in his career where he was thinking primarily with his feet and stomach didn't do much for him financially. DC just didn't have that many issues coming out per month that featured ottomans and Lunchables as main story elements.

    I don't know what this means.

    I demand you illustrate what the results of this would be right now.

    As a side question: Is Power Girl actually a good comic/character? Maybe I just got the wrong impression because all I know about her is how Adam Hughes draws her, but my impression was that it was less a comic as it was a series of boob drawings, with a story appended to it as an afterthought.
    The Justin Gray/Jimmy Palmiotti/Amanda Conner run (collected here, and here) is pretty good. I think having a woman do all the art had a positive effect on the character, making all of her cheesecake-y elements seem kind of fun, rather than exploitative. And the series was divided pretty evenly between her having slice-of-life adventures, fighting weird Silver Age characters like Vartox, and sight gags about her cat.

    So does she like, punch people ala other superheros, or does she just perform acts of charity like helping out small businesses and knocking up entire planets or what?

    It looks fun, but female artist or not, I still think I'd probably get accused of reading it for all the wrong reasons (not necessarily inaccurately, but still!)

    I think there's a bit of everything?



    When I first started posting in these forums, I drew this old ugly thing. Yesterday I re-created it!

    Yes, she punches things. It's still a superhero book.

    I feel weird derailing the Doodle thread, but if you ever want comics advice, come over to Graphic Violence. Since I'm already posting here, here's what I drew last night before bed:

    It's another case of my sketches having more energy than the end product. I also need to redraw the guy on the left's legs and feet.

    not that you can see the palms or the bottoms of the feet

    Is that the same cheese that is actually illegal to sell because the insects will then proceed to eat your stomach.

    Also I am diggin that scos. Add in some more color variations like tam said and some more specular highlights and its golden.

    Why, thankee, yous. I really keep meaning to do more gouache stuff in my pitiful effort to try to be Nathan Fowkes, so it's good to have some encouragement. :)

    I need someone kick me out of bed and force me to do plein air painting on the weekends to enhance my artsy-fartsy powers, though.

    Any messy medium where colors can smear and "contaminate" each other is like kryptonite to me. Charcoal, digital and graphite are pretty much the only things I can do.

    Just wait for layers to dry...? Although I've done some cool 'wet' paintings with acrylic recently.

    That doesn't really work that well with gouache. Although it dries to the touch in a couple of seconds to minutes (depending on the amount of water you use, it doesn't permanently dry the way oils or acrylics do; if you spritz some water onto a gouache painting that's 30 years old, you'll still be able to pull off the paint by soaking up the water with a paper towel. This means that while you can layer wet paint over dry paint a bit with gouache, the instant that wetness starts reactivating that dry paint, it ends up mixing the two pigments together, rather than having a fresh new color just sitting on top of the old.

    Which on one hand can be a pain, but on the other hand, it does encourage you to be very careful so you put down the correct strokes/colors the first time, rather than trying to hash it out by putting on layer after layer of paint. At least that's the theory/what I'm hoping for...I certainly developed a lot of sloppy habits by working digitally that don't translate well to physical painting that it would be nice to break.

    I really like this one, Wak. It reminds the model for my Life Drawing class this semester. She's 6'1" flat-footed, so I always feel like I am drawing her limbs too long... then I realize she's just REALLY lanky. Very nice. I guess I could post some of my Life Drawing stuff instead of just comment on other people's stuff.

    And if you can work through that, you'll be better the 95% of artists who just learned or work digital. I wish more people would realize this. Good traditional work will make your digital stuff that much stronger. That said, Gouache can be a fun sketch medium(its not that great for finished work in the sense that its not very lightfast, and the colors tend to be way less brilliant) and you can actually do some neat wet into wet stuff once you get a handle on it. So long as theres a dampness, or even wet area you can get some nice natural transition effects. You can also mess with transparency/opacity a little bit, far more limited than oil however.

    These are definitely doodles (and not beautiful works of art like some people in this thread):

    doodleapril1.jpg

    I drew some heads. Facial expressions are hard. I know how to draw >:| though.

    I also did this, but too small:

    doodleaprilhead.jpg

    So I made it bigger, but I think it lost its character:

    doodleapril1-2_0001.jpg

    That guy on the bottom looks kind of cool but I still draw too stiffly. Also I just noticed that his right arm is broken as hell.
