Pretty Girls 5: A Contrast of Styles (1/2 NSFW)

In case all of my whimsical graffiti doesn’t hip you to what’s up, clicking on this drawing will take you to the full, uncensored version, which features bare breasts, and more than a hint of danger.

Anyways, I’m coming to you today with two, TWO new drawings of girls, both of which I did last night on a whim and liked so much I figured I would post them.  Now, on a technical note, you may notice that both of these pics are a bit blurry in comparison to all of the other stuff on the site, and that’s because they ended up getting drawn at a lower resolution than I usually work at.  Both of these are essentially remakes of old, crappy drawings I’ve had laying around on my hard drive since years back, when I was on a noisy Pentium 4 system prone to overheating, and working off of a smaller, much lower resolution monitor.  Since both of these drawings were done on a whim, I just began working on new layers within the original, low res files, and by the time they evolved into anything worthwhile I was too far along to really do anything about it.  So, just think of these as, like…”Barbara Walters interview” art, where everything is soft and gauzy.

This first pic is actually of Mai Shiranui, cheesecake queen of the King of Fighters game series and the heroine of my old comic Pixel Chat.  Way back when I first started the comic, my primary goal in drawing Mai was to maintain and play off her existence as perhaps the most nakedly exploitative female character in gaming history, but give her some texture as a real woman, and most importantly, make her look like a believable ass kicker, a chick who could credibly wail on a 200+ lb karate man.  That was always easier said than done, and the result was that I rarely, if ever, found the proper balance between her soft pin-up side and her heavily-muscled brawler side.

With this drawing, I feel as though I’ve finally found the balance.  Mai looks feminine and has curves that would be conservatively described as bodacious, but she still looks tough.  She has broad shoulders, a thick, powerful core and tree trunk thighs, and I personally would be afraid to pick a fight with her, even before you add the whole “fiery ninja magic” thing to the equation.  I also take a sort of weird pride in the fact that her boobs look REAL!!  They’re large, obviously, but so is she, and they seem reasonable when stacked onto such a big frame.  I’ve always hated female action heroes who look frail, and the balance between curves and musculature is a fun tightrope to walk.

This drawing…I’m not really sure what to say about this drawing, other than I’m not certain how these two figures came out of the same burst of inspiration.  I guess she’s, like, a naughty school girl from Bauhaus Junior High.

This drawing is somewhat unique (for me) in its relative focus on clothing.  I’ll be completely honest in saying that clothes don’t interest me anywhere near as much as musculature and the natural lines of the body, so the clothes I do draw tend to be form fitting, rarely obfuscating the central body shape of the figure.  In this drawing, her torso is largely defined by the shape of the dress, which is probably part of why I find it interesting.  That, and I guess I just have a weird Christina Ricci/Thursday Addams/Raven from the Teen Titans cartoon thing that needed to get out.
