ooh this looks fun! i hope i get some artwork in..
Hi everyone, I've been coming back to this site every now and then. I really think that this looks like a lot of fun. I hope that you don't mind one more in group.
As for my take on this I went through a few sketches, but I had a pretty solid idea of what I wanted to draw. I didn't want to create something that looked fake, or just sexy woman in a shiny robot or something. I wanted to create a character that looks as though she's in a lived in future, is one of the on hand mechanics down at a space dock or something and was caught doing her job. So currently have this sketch of a rather hard working woman wiping sweat off her brow as she gets to work refueling some kind of space vehicle. Something about troop morale is on my mind when I'm thinking about this, everyone pulling their part or something
Here is some progress. A few hours worth. I'm thinking of some sort of logo for the Earth Defense Unit to put in as the background, I may come up with some other stuff. Kinda avoiding the kind of pinup that would have a chick straddling a rocket/big gun. Also to clear up any questions about the thigh, they just aren't separated yet, I just threw in some quick value on the legs. It will be more clear in my next update.

Havok - hey man i think your missing a tick with that logo in the background. circles are pretty interesting things in composition. they draw the eye right too them. i think with your logo if you moved it up abit it will give you more focus on the character. at the moment the edge of the top of her head is hitting the edge which feels abit weird. i think it goes to the rule about edges shouldn't really meet like that but yeh, think you could do some more interesting with your logo as a background man. im crap at explaining things so i hope that helps.
Tchuk - interested to see how yours develops man. really liked your last few chow and cow ideas!
did some sketching. not sure on it so far might try a different thumb.
I thought I'd go outside my comfort zone and do a male figure this time ...
"Creativity emerges only when the imagination is given the freedom it deserves."
@Tchuk- I'm liking your rough concept so far
@no87- I really like your pose for "D" but I also really like the way the circle frames the pose in "A"
I've got the basic pose down I think, still trying to figure out stuff like props, and what type of vehicle I want to plaster this on the side of
critiques welcome, the legs are giving me a bit of trouble.

@no87: Thanks for the suggestion. I will have to play with it a bit. It's more of a place holder than anything right now, but I will definitely try different compositions with it for sure.
No87 - I really like the composition you have on all of the choices. I think my favorite is "D."
bopx - I really like the base sketch that you have. I'm looking forward to seeing more.
Just finished spending some time on poses that I might like. Let me know what you think.
