Dragonsnake Chick Redraw (my first!)
I’ve been following this blog for a while, and redrawing all sorts of things in the privacy of my sketchbook, but here’s the first that I’ve actually managed to upload; it’s based on this cover. http://eschergirls.tumblr.com/post/30058409981/spidermimi-submitted-i-dont-even-know-where-to
While I like redesigning silly costumes as much as the next person, and I love changing silly cheesecake poses into awesome badass poses, for this one I thought I’d try my hand at keeping the focus on sexy since it is sort of a pin-up rather than an actual fight scene, and just correcting the anatomy and perspective, since in the original we are somehow looking up at her boobs, down at the top of her pelvis, and then up again at her bizarre between-the-legs butt cheeks.
I tried to stay true to the general curve lines, but with actual human joints and stuff. Her right arm still looks sort of weird, but it’s at least not dislocated anymore and I did model the pose to make sure it’s possible (though not super comfortable).
I did make a point to keep her boobs big, but funnily enough, once you draw a shirt over them they become somewhat less visible. Weird how that happens. I did keep a little underboob in there as an homage to the original artist, but only where her raised arm would conceivably pull the shirt up.
It’s still a silly costume though.
