An early start today!

11" x 17" illo of She-Hulk wearing her Fantastic Four costume, no backgrounds. The details are:

- please draw She-Hulk smiling in a pose of your choice
- please draw her hairstyle similar to how you drew it on the cover of Fantastic Four # 282

That lock of hair has a very subtle effect on Jennifer's face, which I discovered the few times I drew her in the comics without it. With that element falling across the bridge of her nose, there is an unconscious tendency to draw her eyes somewhat wider apart than would normally be the case. This gives an almost subliminal distinctiveness to her look, which goes away when the lock is removed and her eyes move into a more coventional position.

(Art Lesson #137: Generally speaking, the distance between the eyes is the width of one eye.)

You nailed it, JB!  The hair is perfect and there is just enough smile.

Does this early start mean we might see an extra drawing today? :-)

Real life is "intruding" on me today, so no. This is, in fact, the same reason the commission I posted yesterday wasn't finished last weekend.

It's always a treat to see Jen. 

I hope real life means a hot date.

Unless you are married, I don't see how a dates can be an intrusion.

Love this. Especially like the fact that, despite being about seven feet tall, Jennifer doesn't look lanky, even in that pose.

You've nailed her proportions (as expected!).

The positioning of her body seems to spell out the number 4 which is quite cool given the fact that she's appearing in ff garb

Sensational!

Is there any uniform that suits Jennifer better than this one?

She Hulk by Stan Lee, the first series was the first real series that I folloed from the beginning and I liked it. Sadly it became a mini series pretty soon since they didn't carry it on for two long, it's what's in the Essential and that was the run. I liked JB's SheHulk a lot, although it was different for two reasons, it was JB's storytelling and also humor.

My friend was at my home and I had JB's She-hulk run when they were new and I had them there, the issues on the table and he picked up one, broswed through it, picked up another issue and browsed through it jus as fast and I asked "What are you doing?" And he said "Is she green all the time?"

Gotta admit... JB's version of the She-Hulk is the first instance I can remember where I actually had a crush on a comic book character!

(Followed by Aurora, of course...)

Wonderful commission, as always!

I like the way you draw her little fingers, and like your explanation about her lock of hair. Thanks!
