Another entry in the Trinquette Weekly Drawing Challenge over on Facebook. I don't draw Bettie Page very often, mainly because it always leads to my comparing myself to Dave Stevens and I end up feeling really bad about my lack of talent. But I'm happy enough with this image, facile enough in conception and execution, to let it escape into the world! Lamp them gams!
Here are a couple behind-the-scenes images leading up the Wonder Woman piece I posted recently, my original page of sketches and the inked line art. As I mentioned, this piece was created for the Trinquette Weekly Drawing Challenge on FB. Trinquette head honcho posts the theme and about a half-dozen images as reference, and you go to town. My initial idea was to tackle Power Girl, a character I like and have been drawing for years, but wearing her "New 52" costume from the current DC Universe. I realized as I was sketching this, however, that a lot of the New 52 costumes are overly-detailed, needlessly ornate and rather boring, so I scrapped the idea and just went with Darwyn Cooke's beefy, brawny, brick shithouse Wonder Woman. Zaftig!
