Atomeve convention sketch, done at SuperCon in San Jose this past weekend. She's from a comicbook called Invincible, I believe!
Pencil, Pitt pen, and gray Copic marker on 11 X 14 Bristol Drawing paper.
Someone alerted me to this post on an INVINCIBLE message board:
"he drawls 'em hot, no doubt... but she's a little too old looking, which seems to be a AH! issue: not great with conveying youth. hotness, yes. youth, no."
At the risk of sounding defensive, I have no idea how old this character is or isn't. I'd never seen the comic except for the the one the fan handed me for reference. The art, while fabulous, was very stylized. Atomeve is very tall, with an ample chest, so please cut me a small amount of slack when I say that I have no idea if sheis 14, 20, or 28.
Also, I don't get hired to draw many 'youthful' (does that mean 'teen'?) girls. Catwoman, Wonder Woman, pretty much all my usual subjects are in their mid-late 20s and beyond. I think the few times I've had to draw Wonder Girl or some other teen heroine, I've gotten fairly close to the right age bracket.
Again, not trying to sound defensive. I can take criticism fairly well, but I humbly & politely suggest that this time it's mildly unfounded.
I apologize if anyone is offended by my statement, especially the creators of the book. The art was amazing and I really want to read it now.
