    Power Girl WIP

    Gotta get some sleep, so this will have to rest for a bit. Any thoughts, problems, good parts, bad parts, before I dive too deep into rendering her body?

    Cheers!

    EDIT: Haha, guess I didn't flip it around enough, found a whole bloody lot wrong with it already. Well, fixing time tomorrow.

    This looks great so far! From my quick wikipedia researching, it seems like power girl has platinum blonde hair, rather than strawberry blonde. I kind of prefer your take on the hair though. Maybe you can add more blonde highlights or red lowlights to give it a little more depth.

    The neck seems a little too long in preportion to the rest. And the shoulders look off kilter for some reason... it may be because of the cape though.

    Besides that, it's looking awesome!

    That's my memo to myself for the most immediate fixes for the pose.

    Knock knees and pigeon toes are not powerful. Try to track down Wally Wood's original (and still definitive) take on the character.

    Hmm. Trying to fix it only makes everything worse. Back to the beginning.

    Thanks for the comments so far. I wouldn't have thought of the pose like that, but I absolutely see what you mean.
    Okay, let's try something different. Not sure if I can pull off the angle, but so far it looks acceptable.

    MAX POWA! much better pose, but it's going to be difficult to get everything fleshed out from that angle like you said. good luck, and take yer time. also, i think her left arm is a little low and big.

    Managed to squeeze in a few more hours, about halfway done I'd say. Hopefully.

    I'm not 100% sure what to do with her eyes. You guys think it'd work better with her looking down on the (currently not existing) city?

    Wow this is looking nice!

    I think you should leave the eyes looking the direction they already appear to be looking, i think it works as is.

    I'd pay close attention when you start rendering the anatomy of the torso further. It looks like the abdominal muscles might be getting a little wide towards the belly, not leaving enough room for the external oblique (the 3/4 view torso muscle.)

    This is looking good though! like what you've done with the cape, look forward to seeing it worked further!

    ...my humble and uneducated opinion.

    I think you should leave the eyes as is; she looks like she's about to take off, so it makes more sense that she'd be looking up.

    On her bent leg, the curve of the calf is too low.

    Some work on anatomy, the cape and environment, while her belt is taking a vacation.

    wow the second one is so much better, good call! Even though it must have been a pain to completely abandon that. I really liked the face on her!
    But she looks so much more focused in the second so I think it goes better!

    I really love a lot about this piece, the way you've coloured in her costume is fantastic, I really like the colouring on the white parts.
    I'm not totally sure about this, but the only thing I can crit is the back leg, behind the knee, it's too much of a v shape than a soft curve, maybe someone else can back me up on this or tell me I'm wrong

    Ah, thanks stef, I missed your comment about the leg before I went to work on it today. Will have a look at it next time, I did focus on the upper body anyway.

    You've got some nice stuff going on here. I don't like the rumply-crumply texture on the cape, though, and you've lost a little bit of structure in the hands.

    This is coming along nicely

    I agree with Elwell about the cape folds. The folds you have look like the kind of folds you would find on a cloth the is laying on the ground, not blowing in the wind.

    Also I think the value of the skin on her legs is too dark.

    Rock on!
