Missiles!

There's a little extra "volume" in this piece I know.
Ahem.
It's a gift for a couple friends... friends who are a couple. You know what I mean. There are two of them. Friends I mean.
Anyway she's their creation HyperJen.

I was going for more of a retro 50's version of the character.


I couldn't decide which version of the scan to post, so you get both! I like the crispness of the high contrast scan but I also like the cool variations in materials that you can see in the color scan. Including the zip-a-tone on the space stuff and rocket.


Inking is fun. I need to get back into it more.

Great pose and girl, endowed or not. I know what you mean about the color scans of bw artwork...it definitely shifts from warm to cool when it's strictly bw. There are some great full color scans of Dave Stevens bw ink art in the new book about him Brush with Passion you should check out if you don't already have a copy.

Adam Gard said...

Stellar! And, YES, more inked pieces! Keep up the killer artwork.

Thanks everybody. I'm really happy with the piece.

Mike,
I do have the Dave Stevens book, it's fantastic! I'd forgotten how big an influence he was on me when I was young, and didn't even realize his continued effect on me know.

Thanks for including the different stages of the art (like on the valentine one, too). It's nice to see the process.

I love the extra arc that the billows on the boots add.

The late Dave Stevens and I were pals back at Disney and Hanna-Barbera. We both worked for Doug Wildey.

I think Dave would have loved your drawing.
