What can I say? I haven't gotten drawing superheroes out of my system quite yet. I'm hard at work on a real project with emotions and plot and character development and all that stuff, but, on my breaks, my inner ten-year-old demands his due.
This is Ma Hunkel, The Red Tornado. Originally a WWII-era humor feature, this version is suppossed to be more Rosie the Riveter than Katzenjammer Kids. Her superpower is that she will beat your ass with a giant wrench.
This drawing makes use of some techniques I picked up talking with two-tone cartoonist extraordinaire, Michael Cho, who has recently joined us over on the buddy blogs list. Do yourself a favor, and check out his lovely art.
