I knew I recognized your art. I loved witch blade one of my favs, that and wet works.
as far as the DC 52 thing, I always feel in the gaps of logic myself. They don't were armor because...they're braver than batman,ect,etc.
If you want obscene logic look up " Kill La Kill" That's what they wear, 52 could be worse or Awsome.
Keep up the good work and maybe, one day at a time well change this crazy 52 world.
huh never heard the term jailbait used that way, unless she's younger than I thought...
but hey it could be worse, I'm surprised they haven't taken advantage of the potential bondage capabilities of spiderman: hands and feet that can stick to anything, combined with the ability to create intricate restricting webbing.
Conan runs bare chested into battle: the Spartans have even less on than him in the '300' comic. Those barbarian-y characters're supposed to be pulpy and kitschy like that; it's just for fun. It's like any frazetta illustration. Everyone's in on the discrepancy; everyone's in on the joke.
How much are you taking into account the countless numbers of suped up females in comics? Super girl can wear a skirt because she's dipped ass to eyeballs in mithril essentially. Same with Ms. Marvel: she's invincible so she can look as sexy as she pleases. Same with She-Hulk or Red She-Hulk. Kitty Pryde can phase through anything. Rogue can take anyone's abilities and she's already suped up as is. Scarlet Witch can tinker with reality itself.
Went it comes to T and A, as an aspiring designer I've always tried to either A)make a super powered character that doesn't NEED extraneous gadgets or body armor; B)just ignore the clothing issue like 'Tank Girl'; or c) just make their wear sexy and accenting through line manipulation, patterning the components of a suit to flatter the character.
While I agree many comic book artists (Here's lookin' at you, Jim Lee) tend to middle-finger-bang rape the laws of physics and basic anatomy...to some degree...they're just adhering to the comic/cartoon rules of exaggeration. Like Canary for example: her I give a pass because it's just a cool outfit. Would I be amenable to a redress of her aesthetic for a more realistic comic? Yeah. Frankly there are female heroines in desperate need of utility belts. Catwoman, yes. Canary, yes. Wonder woman? Pfft. She doesn't need gadgets any more than Supes or Power girl. Same with Zatana.
I hate the jail bait look in Arkham Asylum: it's just so...trashy. It looks like what Rob Zombie fondles off to. Where's the clown theme, commenting on the innately brutal burlesque of life? Where's the manic pugnacious playfulness of the character? What's the difference between the Arkham look and a goth stripper? It's just such a slapped-on look. It feels like lazy cosplay.
