Actually an old drawing from 2004: Back then, I still only drew small soldiers in battles where the word perspective was unknown, when I began to try to draw larger characters.
One of my first approaches to this, was to try to use as references images from the drawings I had easier access: The revista Condorito.
Condorito is a comedy comic –done by Pepo-, so the characters are cartoon: Not the wisest idea then to try to learn to draw some “close up” characters from cartoons, rather than some more realistic proportions!
Anyway: While Condorito is a “familiar comedy” comic, with white, innocent humor following the stories of the titular character –an Anthropomorphic Condor- and his friends in the fictional Chilean city of Pelotillehue -60 km from Cumpeo, and 90 km form Santiago for further references!- The autor –who signed with the pseudonym of Pepo- in his young years as well illustrated some comical adult magazines: And this was still patent in his way of drawing the extremely curvaceous women of Condorito.
This drawing –done around the 2004, if not before- was done inspired by one of these cartoon women of Condorito: but to complicate things further, as in my developmental stages of drawing I was only capable in the moment replicating –badly- Condorito-style women, I tried to draw in such styles characters of other series and so I saw as… the teen I was back then?
Originally then, this was a sketch drawn in Condorito-style, of the Martian Queen of Duck Dodgers –in her “ninja” outfit-.
Rather complicated, uh? XD
But as I stumbled into this old drawing, I decided to ink it –following the original lines-, and then I coloured on Photoshop.
However, rather than doing the Martian Queen that originally was to be depicted… well, I coloured it this way, which make me think of a leather/latex clad Dominatrix/submissive/person in BSDM or Latex fetish. :I
No, I don’t think I have a good explanation for this! XD
The coloring almost makes this feel real, like a character from Wreck It Ralph or something!! < X D Simplicity and perfection in one! Beautiful!
Yeah, shiny outfits are to be avoided for ninjas! Lol Very sexy though, and fun to hear about your creative process at work, and of Condorito.
Of course you don't have an explanation. That way you can deny it. Also FIRST!
