You know what I would pay all of my dollars for? Frank Cho drawing Captain Marvel. Carol in her new gear.
This picture is one of my favorite drawings of Carol ever, but like with a lot of Cho’s stuff there are parts that bug me. Her chest looks painfully bizarre and her suit is so far up between her legs that it’s going to be paying her child support for 18 years. I love Cho’s technical skill and he’s a pin-up master, but dude falls into the same traps with a lot of what he draws.
Basically what works for ‘sexy cavewoman pinup’ doesn’t work for ‘terrifying kree-infused superwoman’.
But he draws her so strong. Look at her thighs, her waist, her shoulders and her arms. She looks like she could absolutely fuck your world up, and that’s because she can. And I feel like Cho drawing her in the new suit would take away a few of the usual problems I have with his work. His superheroines look realistically strong and threatening, but the suits, dude. The suits and the yes-I-am-a-biological-woman-let-me-prove-it-by-showing-you-my-genetalia poses, I can do with out.
BASICALLY I WANT A VERSION OF THE ABOVE LINKED PICTURE BUT IN THE CAPTAIN MARVEL GEAR. Okay, enough stream of thought rambling. I was looking through his art book today, saw that picture, and thought OH GOD I LOVE THIS COVER aaawww man the leotard crotch why.
Oh my godddd DC comics why.
I’ve now reached the ‘SICK AS A DOG’ portion of running around without stopping for two weeks. At least I was sent home with a stack of comics, and a whole day to draw tomorrow, ho ho!
I know my tumblr is kind of…fucked up right now, I’m not sure what’s up but I’m guessing there’s some issues with the theme. Apologies to anyone being inconvenienced!
And apologies to anyone waiting for me to upload art or answer art, I know I’ve been quiet lately! My store is literally moving to a MUCH BIGGER location LITERALLY TOMORROW so I’m working through 7 days without a break and I am le exhausted! As soon as we are in and moved and good, I will resume ask and art spam :)
And hey, just one more thing, eeee. Some shit happened at work today that I don’t really want to go into because ugh I got upset, but long story short it was the first homophobic douchebag I have had to deal with in like…ever. So I got really mad and upset*. But the reaction of my friends (IF I WERE THERE I WOULD HAVE BEATEN THE SHIT OUT OF THAT GUY) and my boss (NEXT TIME HE COMES IN, CANCEL HIS PULL LIST AND TELL HIM HE’S BANNED) made me so fucking happy that I can’t even. Thanks guys :)
*ordinarily I would be the first person in line to tear apart any brand of ‘phobe but I have this unfortunate tendency to maintain a level of professionalism when I’m at work, which left me feeling kind of helpless. And I fucking hate feeling helpless.
Sneaky small world game night. Sneeeeeeeeaky!

Good news, everybody! I NOW HAVE ONE! It literally took me three days to upload and categorize everything. I might actually draw too much.
There is some stuff on there I’ve never posted on tumblr, likewise there is some stuff on tumblr not posted over there. HAVE AT IT!
Hard at work today. ..
‘I am definitely the more masculine one in this really very lesbian relationship’ I mutter to myself, as my wife waits in the car and I stand in the kotex isle, staring helplessly at a thousand different kinds of paper towels for your junk.
Well this has been an extremely eventful day.
