I took a bit of liberty with the character,because I didn't have much refrence, (I don't own the comic and the only thing I could find on line was that Sean Phillips drawing you posted) .so I used some photo reference I've been meaning to use anyway.But anyway here ya go hope you like it

"Big fan of that drawing style! Superb for illustrating femme fatals! ^_^ "

eh imo it's been done to death,I like what Arther Suydam (sp?) does but I dunno it doesn't really interest me
though a friend of mine pointed out that this looks a lot like the poster from Evil dead two

Really nice work. I love how *up close* and personal it is.
It's in your face, nose-to-nose.

So why aren't you inspired enough? What gives?

thanks a lot I really appreciate it,I really like the stuff you posted I'm going to have to check out bomb queen
but what keeps me uninspired?
my job,being unable to put all my effort into my art holds me back,also I pretty much exclusively work from photo refrence these days and that's fine for stuff that I give to friends or post here but I doubt I could cut it on sequential work. I dunno maybe one day I'll get it togeather and give things a real shot till then I'm happy with my hobby. oddly enough I could say the same thing for writing and making music hahah...Money is the root of all evil
