SOD.076 – Flashette?

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.

    I like everything except her neck. The neck, in my opinion, is too wrinkled.

    The idea was that it was a turtleneck. It gets COLD running that fast!

    Lol Demented. And that is exactly why they don’t have Flashette! πŸ˜›

    @Jeff: I think turtleneck looks more like a turkey neck. A turtleneck may make more sense but it doesn’t look very good. All this is, of course, just my opinion.

    Uhmmm… Hate to inform you guys, but Jesse Chambers (or is she Jesse Tyler, now?) WAS “The Flash”, for about an issue, or two.
    Currently, she’s the new “Spirit of 76″…

    She dyes her hair. Look at her eyebrows.
