Victoria suit open lines by RedShoulder Victoria suit open lines by RedShoulder
Ye gads!  I've been away for a bit--first it was several days for my sister's wedding (which went very well--I'm very happy for her and her husband, who is one cool brother-in-law...), and then dealing with some personal issues.

Which is another way of saying that I wasn't able to really post anything or respond to notes or messages (but relax, people--I wasn't abducted by Greys or anything!).  But now it's back to getting s**t done, and there's quite the backlog (my fault, my fault...).

First up is this--the inked version of Sneakylizard's OC Victoria in her partially open battlesuit.  It will be colored, but the reason for posting this instead of the usual drawing first is because this version corrects several flaws I spotted in the original drawing (huh....some artist I turned out to be! :)).  It was also a challenge to figure out how the suit would open and what would shift.  And it's a belated birthday present to Sneaklizard as well. 

Let me know what you think, Sneak--hope you like it (and the color version is on it's way).

Originally drawn in Vermillion, Red, and Blue pencil; inked in Manga Studio.

Victoria created by Ryan Callan.  Artwork by me.

I don't really like the color scheme of that girl, so I tend to like the black and white versions better. XD
(I know it's not your fault, since it's someone else's OC, but it's my taste I guess).

The good thing about this character and its drawing style is that she feels muscular, but it's not overdone and she feels like an actual woman. Many people (including me actually) have trouble reaching this middle ground when it comes to muscles.

I was lucky enough to have and use reference pictures of real fitness models/female bodybuilders, and it's a lot different that using an illustration which may have gone overboard in terms of physique (hello, Rob Liefeld....).  Besides, I've never been a fan of adding more and more when it comes to muscles--at some point it does go from beautiful to just plain ugly.

Glad to know that I was able to strike a balance--even if I wasn't aware of it! :)

Well, it's probably because I'm into manga, where muscular women are a rarity (even though it's a media full of girls often stronger than an aircraft carrier XD)
When you have muscled women in manga, it's usually exaggerated in a very unrealistic way.

Since your art feels pretty "manga-ish", it's nice to see the muscle thing blend correctly with the other features of that drawing style.
