Why a female Flash? Because I said so, that's why!
I have to say, this turned out to be one of my favorite illustrations I've done, except for her left arm which is bugging me beyond all measure. It's just kind of lumpy and shapeless. Other than that, though, I think it's pretty decent. One note, the use of a more vibrant yellow in the hair for the line color came from messing around with a HeroMachine character I was building to test out some stuff. I liked the effect and want to explore its use more as I continue trying to figure out this whole coloring thing.
