A guy who goes by the handle "poxpower" started a "Miniposters Girl" art contest on Newgrounds
, and, in my continuing quest to be popular there :p, I made an entry for A*. Here it is, plus a few additional versions. Click these 1/3rd-size previews for the full-size 1500x2100 versions:
It had been a while since I'd drawn a female figure, and *way* longer than that since I'd tried working with color, so this was a pretty good exercise for me. I was also feeling a bit rusty with the lasso tool when I started episode 3 final art on Tuesday, so this gave me a chance for some additional warm-up before I get into the meat of that episode. I haven't done either a "cheesecake" or pop-art style drawing before, and it isn't really my preference I guess, but the contest seemed like a good enough way to get my work shown that I figured I'd give it a shot anyhow. Fussing with the colors started making my brain melt, but I think it turned out okay in the end?
Now, I should mention that this image doesn't actually have anything to do with episode 3, aside from the approximate release date. No girls in episode 3, I'm afraid! There *may* be a certain spacefaring, missile-armed female character showing up around a gas giant's asteroid belt in about oh, say, episode 5-ish, but the woman here doesn't really look like her, and she certainly wouldn't take along such an impractical item as a shoulder-mounted rocket-launcher, or practice tethering her puny, impractical ship (with cosmic-ray-vulnerable windows, no less--and we won't even bother talking about that silly bubble helmet) to an asteroid with her own body. Still, this was a good way to work out an idea of what the general area might look like.
