Sorry for this long post.
So many times I browse though the forums and mean to comment, but dialysis, or being tired, or errands or just dead head keeps more from it. I’ve been more with it the last couple, probably a desperate attempt to keep from packing, but here I am with my stored up comments from January.

Belle Hickok, a.k.a. Wild Belle.
Every thing about her says she might be a little “off” heh, Straggly paltinum blonde bangs on otherwise black hair, the mask, her expression, the cock of the head, the chest scar, the exposed undies as a gunslinger’s clothes. the Hikock badge as belt buckle, garter belt holding up jeans leggings. Very well done.

everything is great about her. Pose, colors, hair, face,
expression, body, metal work, highlights and shadows, and
background. I particularly like the rubbery bendable bits for her waist.

Pax Terra: logo
kicks major butt.

Headcase would just be a dead head without him. Even
more than than the guantlet, gunbelt, and boots which are awsome, the work on the tunic blows me away. Great face, hair and goggles,color scheme, background too.

HeadCase Mermaid
You have accomplished what I have tred and usually failed with the water surface and diagnal light streaks through the water. and horizontal tides of depth.
The black and green looks grood on HeadCase, wicked tail.

Captain Dallas
Heh he looks a bit like my Lone Star I did back in the 80s for my Texas Rangers group. May be a bit better than mine though. Got to love the knife as toothpick. heh

Dr. Brain
First: really kewl pose. Great uniform too. She even looks kinda shy like she wouldn’t talk much.

Protector Awesome
Has a Invisable Girl vibe circa Malice’s takeover. And that isn’t a dig, it’s a compliment.
It’s all great! from the side face which you managed to make look different that the base face and great hair you put together, the clean simple insignia, the simple yet kewl uniform, the sparkly bits of the unifrom, that really wonderful pose. the highlights and shading nad power effects and background all comes together in a great pic.

Wild Dance Pose
That is some creativity! What bits did you use for her ribcage and belly?

This may be my favorite outfit EVER!!!! those sleeves with the cut outs, the flowing skirt around her lower legs. What I would call a mermaid silhouette. I have several hand sketches of similar from the late 70s and mid 80s, but not exact.
When I mentioned similaurs I mean nothing bad by it, just
how I really connect with what you are doing. 100% grooving on it.
That with the slight S pose, the hand on the witches hat, the face, hair and white magic. Sigh. I wish I had created this one.

Wind Dragon
kewl use of the pose.
the green and gold go well together, even though not might one would expect from a wind character, but good for the name sake.
Gotta love opera gloves, tails, panties and hip boot skates all together on one character. Interesting, non traditional use of wind effects too. Good thinking out of the box.

what’s not to like about a dominatrix outfit LOL Very well put together, including the stitch work. Nice effect of the whip winding around her too. And you can tell she is hovering too.

Cosmic Knight
Wow super kewl! Very anime vibe. the hair, face, pose, costume, sword, guantlets and dark sheild all just kick major butt. Doesn’t hurt I have a soft spot for blue skin too.
the blue, gold and black/grey work well together. Of course the shading is amazing.

Im curious are you a Legion of Super Hero reader/fan?
Love everything, the action pose, the costume, the moving hair, face, shading, all the usual plus the monster/ The Amulet is very kewl too.

was beautiful. Great shading, loved the shadow of the circling flame on the egg.

those eyes faded at the bottom and higlighted lips are amazing, The nose and face are off course good too, but the eyes and lips are just …. MORE! Kewl black square drop outs too.

one again Pose, costume, colors, hair, face and power effects just all amazing. Loving the 70s look.

Great use of pink pallet, and with the gray, looks kewl. Again you knocked it out of the park: hair, face, pose, costume, weapons (loving the pink gun), shading, background, (loving the double squares). It’s all great. Didn’t miss a single swing.

those are two awesome poses.

How many times can I say it rock! Cause of hair, face, pose, costume, colors? heh heh. As many as does I suppose.
I love the sublte red, white and blue of Justice Girl, it doesn’t come across like white stars on blue and red and white stripes. It actually took me a couple of moments before i caught it. And Fury in devil girl red works well too.

OK all of the above stuff on about every post applies here as well.
Picking specifics: the extreme “Girlyness” of her, the flimsy see through skirt and panties, the sandle leg straps up the boots. the motion of hair/ribbons, cape and skirt.

Everything, including the colorless color LOL 😀
Specifics: The hair is brilliant, I mean beard for the sides, Who’d a thunk?? Some massive mammories she has there. love the frillie cuffs and on the boots. Gray butterfly wing background!

Wonderful. Even showing some of how you did it, I;m not totally sure. But wonderfully done.

Very kewl stuff.
