Swimsuit She-Hulk

For those of us old enough to remember comicbooks from the 90's, you may remember those cheesy Marvel Swimsuit Specials with heroes and villains bathing in their swim trunks frolicking poolside while striking a pose. The heroes were usually taken so far out of context that it seemed utterly ridiculous...nowhere else would you see Colossus wearing a thong or Wolverine in a pair of cutoff jeans (those images are still painfully burnt into my retinas).

So...now that I've created some sort of kooky context of my own, here's my tribute to those comics. Presenting She-Hulk in an bikini!

CLICK FOR UNCROPPED IMAGE (Warning: skimpy swimwear)
This was actually done for last month's Drawing Jam over at the Drawing Board. The subject for the Jam was fitness expert Jaime Koeppe, so her physique and one of the photos in particular lent themselves well to a She-Hulk piece. Here's the photo I used as reference. Also here's the pencil drawing I started with.

Looks great Chris...and good to see you getting so many comments! You captured a nice blend between comic art and pinups from the 60s! Thanks for the comment you left on my blog too.

Beautiful! I love seeing the ref and seeing the decisions you made to make her even prettier, especially in the face and hair, great job as usual. I'd love to see your pencils for this one.
Also, is there a reason why your blog won't come up in Google's RSS feeder?

Thanks all!!

Damion- Yes! I'd love to see your take on She-Hulk.

Michael Dooney- I'll have a scout around for the pencils and post a link.

Regarding the Google RSS feed, I had it redirected to Feedburner a while back.

The link's on the sidebar of the blog or you can find it here-
