Rogues and Spiders


Rogue as I remember her from the Xmen cartoon. Or from the Xmen - Jim Lee series. When she still was not Anna Paquin and had huge fluffy hair and a crush on Magneto or something like that.

Spiderwoman from the 80s cartoon. Or 70s. As I said, I hate the 'armpits' in the original design so they're just not here. And I hated how dowdy Jessica Drew looked normally. And she should have been Asian. Or half asian. Dammit.

Saturday Night


Some time ago I was having a bad drawing day and I ended up sketching out a very simplified outline of a dancing girl. I sorta liked it and while clearing out the table yesterday I found that doodle. So I decided to rework it at a larger scale with more detail. I did keep the outline more or less the same though, which accounts for the more-stylized-than-usual hips and knees. I just find you get more action in a pose when you stretch the proportions and simplify things.

On a side note, I was also thinking of Abba's 'Dancing Queen' while doing this. Wayne says it reminds him of Dazzler, although I've never read anything with her in it so I'll just take his word for it.
