Captain Spandex, The Adventures of

I almost trashed this drawing like, 5 times as I was working on it. It still doesn't entirely impress me.

I was trying something different with the linework. It's all the same weight. I was going for an old-timey comic book feel, but I don't think I really nailed it. I think I'll stick to my usual varied line weight.

Noticed the addition of hatching down the shadowed side. Haven't seen that done by you in some time. Gives it a retro look. The stances awkwardness deflates the sense of hime being a true hero and makes him look like a bit of a dork. I like it.

I spent way too much time on the pose and it still didn't turn out how I wanted it to.

I really wish we still had a life drawing class. That helped me so much.

I saw a good book on anatomy for artists (actually, I think that was the title) at Borders yesterday, but I couldn't afford it. I dunno... maybe I should get one of those little wooden poseable dudes.
