This is so damn silly. So many people will have had to look at these designs and okay them before they see the light of day and.. they all thought this was okay? These ridiculous female characters have all been designed, modelled, rigged, animated by talented artists and.. I just, I just don’t understand. Is designing a practical female character so hard?

So jealous of the talent that it’s scary.
So, I had this headcanon to do a Blues Brothers/Korra crossover
Thus, the Bender Bros were born!

All this talk about redraws made me want to do another one, so there you go. I took the liberty of adding a red light for enhanced creepiness. Not sure what the character’s age is supposed to be, but I know I unintentionally made her look younger by the way I changed her face and body shape.
I think most people who do redraws are not trying to compete with the original artwork; they are using the published artwork as a jumping-off point to observing how anatomy really works. To me, the focus of this blog is not about condemning professional artists who portray women unrealistically; it is about educating viewers and artists on the subject of human anatomy and the inaccuracies in how it is frequently portrayed in comics and games. The redraws are my favorite part of this blog, not just because they’re amusing but also because every time I see one, I know that there is one more artist out there who is making an effort to learn anatomy from real-life observation instead of by copying images that another artist has already stylized. More power to them if they’re still early in their artistic development; a lot of people don’t learn until much later. The redraws are what set this blog apart from the numerous other critiques of female portrayal in comics, and what I like about them is that they get people active and involved by creating their own images to counter the ones that we’re all already familiar with. Of course none of us are perfect artists, but the point is that we’re trying. We’re trying to get the right idea across. If all anyone takes away from the redraws is an increased awareness of how many different ways a scene can be interpreted and stylized besides the most common one, it’s worth posting them.
That is a good redraw! I especially like how you kept to the style. I love the new pose with the hand where she’s almost gesturing them to attack. Awesome! :)
