Event Art: Secret War She-Hulk

Here’s something new we’re trying. I have a dream to create art for comics/games. We were kicking around some ideas and I threw out the idea that I’d like to see more characters done in a similar style to what characters wore in Secret War (our current event, see where this is going?). The first name I heard was She-Hulk, always a favorite. I took the bait.

As I thought this out and looked for source material, I found that Ms. Walters is a very polarizing character. She often comes under fire for being one of two things. She’s either criticized for being too sexy or, on the other end, too muscular. I realize a lot of this is subjective, which makes it really tough to find the strong yet attractive look that we all expect the She-Hulk to embody.

The pitfalls? Too muscular, and she comes off like a female bodybuilder, which, while female bodybuilders have their own style that works for them, doesn’t really work for She-Hulk. Too sexy, and she’s not believable as a superhumanly strong heroine, and I for one look for a little more in my heroes than just a pinup girl, although there’s nothing wrong with acknowledging that. I settled on something muscly, but with enough va-va-voom to keep with her bombshell personality.

The costume uses the same dark tones as was seen in Secret War with a nod to the more commonly known white and purple She-Hulk one piece.

I hope you all enjoy it. I know I had fun drawing and painting this one. Next, I plan on tackling Hawkeye. Let me know what you all think.

      The idea is to do him as sort of a blend between his iconic look and the Ronin character
