I’m still working on improving the way I draw my women characters, so I’ve gone back and revisited the evil Spandex Girl from the “Roid Rage” story arc. I’m finding that it’s better to not use too sketchy a style, especially with the women characters, as all the extra linework makes the image too ‘heavy’ and hard. I think this is an improvement from the previous VIXX sketch. More to come….

I was inspired by the great sketch done by the very talented Elias Chatzoudis to do my own new sketch of the evil VIXX.
I’ve never been too happy with the way I draw women (actually, I’m never completely happy with the way I draw anything, but that’s just being an artist…) so I’m thinking I need to spend some more time on female characters. I finished this one and I can already see things I want to improve. You’ll probably be seeing more of these one-off sketches coming down the line….
One of the fun things I did when I attended the Emerald City Comic Con this year, was visiting with some of the creative people in Artist’s Alley and asking them to draw the Henchmen in their own style. It’s interesting to see these characters that I’m SO familiar with interpreted differently. I’m posting the sketches that I collected from all these talented folks on the Artwork page, and I’ve provided links to the artists’ websites so you can check out more of their work. Check it out!
The art for this story was colored by the talented Napua Ahina, who also provided the alternate cover for the comic:
