I just wish I could get foreshortening down a quarter as well and I've been trying to 48 some odd years!! Pesky human anatomy can be a bear to work with, but I still dig the rendering nonetheless.

After Danny's comment regarding your faces and hair, I had been trying to put a finger on whose work they remind me of and, for me, I see more Adam Hughes than Art Adams, but, hey, they're both ultra-talented so being compared to either is a good thing!

I looked at Hughes for hours before I did the WW! Still looking at his work in fact....

Anatomy, Danny is a master, I study Bridgman, the covers are falling off every book!

as for style, its evolving constantly precisely because I am trying to cartoon more and worry less about accuracy....but its hard for me!
Honestly, yeah, I feel as if my eye zeroed in on that area right away but, the leg isn't a total disaster or anything so no worries. It just looks a bit over worked and misshapen and contrasts with the rest of her figure which is more concise and clear.

BTW, I'm no anatomy master-still trying to figure all this shit out myself-but thanks anyway.

Batwoman looks pretty good, Cesare. To my eye, everything looks pretty proportionate body structure-wise. Something feels off about her left foot, whether it's the angle or not, I can't put a finger on. You accentuated the curves of her upper body really well, but from the waist down, her curves seem to flatten out a bit, betraying of setting off-kilter the voluptuousness of her from the waist up. Maybe a little more roundness to the curve of her butt and exaggerate in the curves of her legs would help her out, as well.

The one element that really strikes me is the seemingly masculinity of her face. Body is all woman, but the face seems a little overly manly with angles and bone structure much more prone to a male character.

I think I like the pencilled piece a bit better than the inked piece; the pencils give her a nice, organic feel, but the inks comes in, especially on the head and face, and kind of take that organicness away. Sometimes, with inking, less is more. I'd dry to pull back on the solidity of some of the inkwork and try to capture some of the more subtle shading nuances portrayed by the pencil rendering.

With just a little fine-tuning and tweaking, this could easily be another fabulous addition to your portfolio!
