Powerless Hero

One of my first assignments this year. We had to create a super-hero. Not sure of what his power is, but his look is pretty cool. I had to keep it lineart, and not include colours which was tough for me, cos I love colouring my linearts

Homophobia Hurts

Earlier this year, we had an assignment where we had to centre on a stereotype and show them in a positive light.
I chose homosexuality.
The image shows the negative effects that homophobia can have on certain individuals, and how it can lessen their self-esteem

Denim Ghetto

Around last year November I was pretty busy, because this one also comes from then.
It's very J.Lo with a bit of a naughty edge. Luckily though, there's no nip-slip going on!

I initially made her crotch rather 'manly and large', unintentionally of course, but much tweaking, flattening and sucking - kinda like plastic surgery - and voila! She has her womanly shape back.

A Storm's a-brewin'

Storm. There's not much more to say about the character, everyone knows her from X-Men fame. Usually a black woman with a cape, I spiced it up by taking away her cape and making her caucasian. I spent a lot of time on her hair, adding shadows in certain areas, and considering her hair is so busy, it was something I'm not too keen to repeat.
I did this one in September last year, and also included it in my portfolio for my college application.

Angeline Jolie look-alike

Now this picture I did a really, really long time. It was around the time when Wanted, the Angelina Jolie and James McAvoy movie came out. Obviously that's where my inspiration came from. Something in this picture which I rarely do because it's too difficult, is the smudging of light and shadows.
For most of my pictures I use clean, fine lines to part the light from shadows, where this picture uses smudges. It gives it a realistic look to it, but it can also go very wrong, hence why I prefer not to do it too often. You can notice it especially on her breasts (I'm proud of those knockers).

This specific picture took me 9 hours over 3 days!!!

Punk Rocker!

This image I created around this time last year. It's very basic, it didn't take me long either but what I like is the weird body proportions.
I got lazy and didn't wanna add guitar strings, plus i think it might have made the simple image too busy.
But I'm happy with the result :)
