    Spider-Woman on the Prowl!

    Here goes my first post on the site. This is a drawing I did of Spider-Woman. I plan on doing a colored version of this with a background however before I jumped to that I was wondering if her anatomy is accurate enough and how I would go about scaling the buildings in the background according to the foreground image. Thanks in advance for any critiques.

    Where's her left leg? Or where her underarm webbing attaches to her torso?

    Spiderwoman as portrayed by Jennifer Lopez.

    Her ass and right leg are way too big. I understand this may be a personal choice but it doesn't suit the character at all.

    I took a reference photo and the left leg wasn't visible at all only the left foot. I don't understand your second question.

    The hip is awkward, and the butt/leg are way too big. Also, the bricks are really small. If you were to assume the bricks were normal bricks and then look at her, she's HUGE!

    Yeah, I have to agree with above, spider man as well as spider woman are both slender and athletic built. If they were that big like you portrayed them, then they wouldn't be able to climb walls, hang on their web, be agile and fast.

    Nice clean lines here, good inking too.
    I have to agree with evryone on the model. J-Lo would not make a good Spider-woman. Someone more slender but just as smexy will work.

    As for the hidden leg just because it isn't in your ref deos not mean it shouldn't be in your art. The leg and feet that are a little bigger will make this better.

    Keep going and see what happens.

    Can we see the ref? You're obviously misinterpreting something.

    I don't have the image anymore but there a few similar ones I've seen on the net and the left leg wasn't visible in them either As far as the thick thigh and booty that was a personal preference. Even in the comics Spider-Woman is packing junk in the trunk.

    I agree with all the comments about the proportions, she looks more like hippopotamus woman than someone who is agile and can move fast. It also looks like more like an assignment I did where we practiced extreme foreshortening which I doubt you intended. Her head and upper torso is really small compared to her butt. Also I think she would look really awkward standing up. I don't think those tiny feet would be able to support her very well or provide much balance. And as mentioned the bricks aren't scaled properly.

    Never as much as your portraying.

    You seem pretty set on what you've already drawn and aren't too open to the critiques and advice given so far which is a shame because your image has a lot wrong with it that can easily be fixed in this very early stage.

    Personal preferences are fine but they aren't a good thing to cling to when portraying a pre-established character that people know and love. I love polka-dot bikinis but I wouldn't paint Batman in one because it just wouldn't suit him.

    Fixed that for you. For clarification, it's a tiger that is also a shark, not just a tigershark.

    It's a good thing Batman carries around that trusty Shark-Repellent BatSpray!

    So how do I go about scaling the bricks properly? I was also wondering how I'd scale buildings in the background.

    RE: The Bricks

    I'm not feeling well enough (and I'm not talented enough) to help with scaling all the buildings in proportion with Spider-Woman, but as far as the bricks go, they need to be scaled in proportion to her.

    Example: For me, the red bricks in the wall at my house are roughly as long as my hand, and probaby about as tall as my palm is wide... so for this picture, I'd draw Spider-Woman's hand as a stand-alone, use it as a standard of measure, and see how big the bricks should be in comparison. Granted, I'm using just rough estimates, and of course you can adjust as necessary for artistic reasons, composition, different building materials, etc., but that might be a place to start.

    The closer the building the bigger the building. Closer buildings also have more detail then the buildings that far away.

    There seems to be a thick heel on the left foot/shoe/sandal, but none on the right. About Falchion's second point, I'm not familiar with the character, but I assume the webbing between the arms and torso are to facilitate gliding. In that case, they should attack to the back sides of the arm and torso, so as to increase surface area, and to more practically buffer the descent with stability. There should be some drawn indication of where and how they attach.

    holly sardines!-Robbin hahaha. Anyways, spider-woman maybe has junk in the trunk but not of a fat woman and as big as you drew. It's more firm and toned down and suits her body.
