mmemento asked: Hey love the blog. I have trouble drawing arms,in terms of length, mass and how they bend, any tips?
Anonymous asked: Um, so I kind of wanted to ask if maybe you would be willing to take a look at some of my art and give me some hints/redraw some of them? Like, if I gave you the links to where I have them posted her on my tumblr, could you mail me or redraw them and put them on your blog maybe?
Anonymous asked: This may be a little outside the anatomical accuracy focus of your blog, but why do most female comic characters seem to fight crime/evil/aliens/[insert villain here] in what amounts to fetish wear or stripper gear as opposed to women's wear from 5.11 Tactical or Blackhawk?

havecrayonswilltravel asked: For everybody who's frustrated with the lack of variety in body types, check out Ross Campbell. He doesn't have a lot of superhero work, but he's the current artist on Glory, the revamped Leifeld title. He's also doing a scifi/superhero webcomic called Shadoweyes that has a fantastic range of body types and ethnicities. Seriously, I can't plug this guy enough, he's...

Submission from evalilith: Inspired by the previous post recommending titles, I realized this blog would be a great place to share one of the most inclusive and least sexist how-to-draw books I’ve ever seen. After all, we’ve spent a lot of time commenting on awful ones, so let’s have a good example! Now, the title will sound ridiculous, but bear with me. It’s called...
Anonymous asked: To the other anon: classes and tutorials are great for basic body ratios and skeletal structure, and you were given good advice on that, but what you need is to practice like crazy. The key component of drawing is training your critical eye. So that if a ratio is off, or you need to deviate from the ratio, you know what looks "right". Use your own body as a double check. As an aside, I...
Anonymous asked: I really like this blog, and I'd just like to ask you this: how do you feel about the lack of diversity of body types in comics? Most female characters I come across are tall and chesty, and I rarely see short women while reading them. Have you had the same experience?

hollarity asked: Hello, I am a massive appreciator of this blog. I don't know if you take or promote recommendations, but I have some comic recommendations that have strong females who aren't demoted to eye candy status. I recommend Marvel's "Runaways" (NOT the thing with Dakota Fanning and Kristen Stewart. It's about the children of super villains and their struggles against them)...

And the Catwoman #0 parodies continue
dcwomenkickingass: This one is by Cameron Stewart, who given that he was an artist on the last volume of Catwoman, does know a little about the character. He tweeted today, “I really don’t know about this new Catwoman design” This completely wins. Cameron Stewart, you rock.
