TRDL 2011 Series No. 10 - Lady Deathstrike

This illustration was done for the TRDL Art Jam.  The subject this time: CLAWS

I chose to do one of the 90’s X-Men villains I always loved in concept, if not always in execution (being no fan of much of the art from that period)… but the idea of essentially a female Wolverine with some degree of techno-mutation always intrigued me, and the basics of her design looked cool. This is my version, mostly on-model. I made her arms proper cybernetic limbs rather than techno-mutated, per se, and I changed the loincloth to a side belt wrap, but this was a compositional choice. This is the 10th pic in my 2011 series, and number 48 in the TRDL Pinup Series, which are contemporary characters in poses inspired by vintage pin-up art.

Please enjoy, hell yes!
