Come Fly with Us!

This pic of a jetgirl was made to put up at my old site to redirect
them to this one... thought I'd share it here too. I had the basic idea
of the character, but I was torn between 2 design styles: a Soyarama-like,
sleek looking design, or a more mecha, robotic one. I think I was
leaning towards the robotic one as I don't actually have any pics of Soyarama's...
but from what I've seen of his stuff in the past, I'd say he was a strong
influence. The helmet is very "Rocketeer"-ish... or at least comes from
the same inspirations Dave Stevens (creator of The Rocketeer)
used too: those 1940's serials. I consider this jetgirl another in my
series of robo-gals started by the Mecha-angel pic that graces
the site's entrance page. This is a bit of a follow-up to that. I want
to do a series of mecha-gals pinups along these lines.
I don't know who that doofus is with the comic pages.
Ppffff. My apologies for that last line. That kind of disingenuous modesty
is almost a requirement for these online sketchbooks.
Don't you get a little sick of it?
