Okay, I changed my mind. That other piece isn't going to be my first piece in the show after all. I'll consider it a color comp, instead.

See, sometimes, I get ahead of myself and feel like I need to get things DONE! which leads to lots of rushed, crappy work. However, when I take the time to make a lighting comp and a color comp, especially for pieces with backgrounds, I find that the outcome of the final piece is WORLDS better than it would have been.

Also, I saw a lot of things wrong with the other piece, such as:
-The main character was much too small for it to be a pin-up. She should be the most important!
-The anatomy was really off, and it looked pretty wonky.
-So much empty space in the background! Needs more stars and rockets and stuff. :D
-Pretty "meh" pose.

My most favorite part was the logo, so I'll be keeping that.

So here's my revised sketch! Hooray!

AND!!!! My computer has 3 seperate viruses that have slowed it to a crawl. It took half an hour to make this post. Somebody come fix it. I have work to do. :(((((((

hey Allison, so is this chick supposed to be a space-age spin on the classic? If so, I think she should be more feminine (not girly) and perhaps more bad-ass so that she conveys the confidence and beauty and all together awesomeness that is the great American pin-up. Just a thought. I'd love to hear more about your ideas for this series so hit me up! -Skim

She's just a spinoff of anime in general, and played up young girl heroines in comics/cartoons. I'm working on making her look a bit older, though, haha. More updates soon!
