Dejah Thoris, Princess of Mars - Rough

I didn't get to finish anything for the blog today. I did sketch this up though. Just a little Dejah Thoris with an attitude. There seems to be a lot of reclining, sexy Dejahs out there, of which I have contributed more than my share. This time Dejah is killing some Thark butt and taking names. This sketch was done in Photoshop. Sometimes I like working completely digital. I can do so many layers, one on top of another, until I get what I want. Plus I just put a new nip in my stylus and it was moving so nice across the tablet. :)

Kicking Thark butt while showing us her own!

Woohoo! Who says sexy and
action-packed with attitude need be mutually exclusive?

Neat seeing what looks to me like some bone structure as you build the figure with the gray "Copic marker" type lines. Hope you finish the piece to share!

Thanks Royce!

Even when I sketch digitally, actually, especially when I sketch digitally, I have to really block in the structure. I haven't gotten to the same comfort level as I have sketching in traditional mediums. So I build up layers from a simple gesture until it is right. I didn't go any further than this on this piece. I printed it out on an 11" x 17" piece of copy paper and light tabled the line art on to the Canson paper. The finished piece is posted. Thanks Gary!
