As a cartoony artist.. I say make it bigger haha

Yeah I'm going to agree as well. Without the change I think the shoulders would be to wide to feel as feminine as you are going for. I am really liking the style though. The hair shaping against the rest is a sweet combination.

I really enjoy your reference to Erik Jones whether it was intentional or not. He's a big influence in my own work.

I'm just curious, but why did you pick those colors? Was it actually a throwback to the female hulk, or do you really just like green?

i am a fan of jones and i think it kind of snuck out of the back of my mind when i made this because i haven't looked at his stuff in a while.

as far as colors i didn't prepare a pallete just went from skin to hair to swim suit, but i did want to make her an alien, maybe add a few items here and there to make it more obvious. but now i'm thinking if i made her hair black she could be she-hulk, which would be pretty cool. haha.

A pin-up alien girl would be cool, just watch the old cliches. There's nothing that can make a piece fall flatter then that. I would suggest if you want a vintage outer space chick, check out the Flash Gordon comics for inspiration.

Or you could make her look totally crazy- that would probably be my approach.

I think you've got the great beginnings of a piece. I'll be interested to see where you take it.

good idea, i definitely don't want it to be a typical pinup. thanks so much for the suggestions, looking up flash gordon stuff now. it is so cool, why have i never read it before!?
