Week sixty eight of Operation Graphite – theme: Realistic Heroine.

Shock - Desert Rat

Realistic – how do we define this when we’re making stylized images? Or, can they not be stylized at all? Is photo realism something that such a heavy word demands? If the eyes are too big or the proportions not right, do we miss the mark? A Realistic Heroine, certainly the antithesis of so many dumbĀ comics from the 90’s, must have depth, strength, and believability. In the end, maybe the look isn’t always the key determination, as realism goes deeper than the visage. But don’t let that be an excuse for ridicules poses and outfits.

The theme selected for week sixty eight of Operation Graphite will be: Realistic Heroines.

027-Aliens - O Resgate

 

Sometimes there’s a mission that no man can accomplish. That’s when she steps up, kindly says, “stand aside boys,” and gets shit done. She won’t have the proportions of a barbie doll, or any plastic parts. A realistic heroine, not one of those voluptuous contortionists on a comic book page; a real woman, not just a thirteen year old boy’s fantasy.

Please submit any drawing or painting, using traditional or digital media, of a Realistic Heroine.

All art work is due on Thursday 6.13.13. Submissions will be published the following Friday 6.14.13.
