I haven’t been watching the Eschergirls blog for that long, but I’m extremely grateful for all the artwork that’s been posted here. It’s given me a chance to learn from sequential art masters, as well as reputable how-to books. I’ve paid attention to the techniques shown in both of these venues, and I think I now have a handle on how to draw the essential comic book superheroine:
-Visible breasts (nipples a plus)
-Make as much of the butt bare as possible. Lovingly rendered battle thong is a plus.
-Cut-outs in outfit
-Must wear high heels
-Must have ideal hourglass figure.
-MUST NOT LOOK MASCULINE IN ANY WAY!
Assuming all else is optional and not really that important, I’ve created a brand new COMPLETE superheroine!
Isn’t she totally hot? Her superpower is being able to show boobs and butt at the same time. I know; that’s not so unique. All superheroines have this power. But I also gave her a cape!
The most important thing I’ve learned from these sequential art masters and how-to books is that women are not more than the sum of their parts. They are just parts. And as long as the most important parts are shown in every panel, it’s okay to mutilate and mangle the throwaway remainder of the woman’s body. There’s only so much room in each panel, so it’s best to stick to what’s really essential in a woman.
I think I’m gonna go pat myself on the boob for a job well done.
This is so awesome. I always joke that this is what they want anyway given that often, in the images on this blog, it looks like everything else is just a pain for the artist to draw.
My friend just offered up a line too good to pass up also: “she is like a hypnotic purple penguin.”
