Fitness Artemis by Spacecowboytv Fitness Artemis by Spacecowboytv
WORK IS HARD. Sorry I am never around. turns out being a Creative Director is much more time consuming than I had thought!

Any way, some of you may remember that I posed the question, "when does female musculature become unattractive?". Well after taking the results of the poll into consideration, this is the piece I came up with. I am trying to push the American Comic Book style of nearly Roman full body flex figure with the fair subtle roundness of Japanese Anime.

I hope the result is a piece that is both alluring and sexually attractive, while maintaining truth to both forms of illustration.

Comments are VERY Welcome. Thank you.

I have no problem with how looks :) But your right to be worried about the fine line of sexy muscles on a girl and the over the top muscle mass on other girls. To me, muscles on a girl can be sexy in a way. But the obscenely amount of muscles on a girl seems too much

I like your muscles. =)
It's perfect, just as wing nose is not my taste of perfect woman.
Not a blonde nose.

A little more muscle than I normally prefer in women(Yes, I find women attractive ;)), but not so much it becomes unattractive, so you did a very good job! ^^

You have FULLY succeeded in your endeavor. My problem with most 'anime styled' drawings is that the character looks too young or too thin ('waif-like') in an attempt to be attractive to the viewer. And my problem with art depicting muscular or toned women is that they often look manly or just plain unattractive because they're catering to a niche fetish.

This is BEAUTIFUL. The form is excellent, the color is great, and the pose is so cute, just a little sassy. All in all, wonderful. Great job.

It looked a bit bulbous for the characters initial form; but, it still brings a nice unique feature to the character and I like it.

As long as muscles aren't BIG and curves are retained it's fine for females to have muscles. Lean muscle is very sexy. I think what's more impressive here is the quality of the detail in the coloring that makes the muscle look natural and real. Far better than what I have been able to do. I probably would have gone with a dark brown for the inks instead of black, but that's a persona preference. It's perfectly fine the way that it is. :clap:

You are welcome. I try to help and encourage as many people as I can. As the great artist Franchesco often tells me, always strive to be better than you are. Never get to a point where you say to yourself 'I got it'. When that happens we as artists tend to plateau and sometimes even REGRESS in the quality of our work. Looking at your portfolio there certainly isn't any of that going on. You are definitely cooking with gas! :D :boogie:

I like it, this is almost perfect. The arms could of been a little thicker, just a little, they look thin for such a toned woman but everything else is great!

Nicely done. The hands need a tiny bit of positional work. Right now they look like they are holding a 2D image if you know what I mean. It might be the thumb, some shading to increase the depth on her right hand and more curve on the right - or perhaps more shadow on the right on her pants to suggest distance? Anyway nicely done body. Not 100% liking the pants thigh area but draping is hard - and you are much bettter than me so take the crit for what it iss worth.

Hehe. Any job with the title Director in it seems to have a lot of work involved with it.

I think you are doing great! I like that your shading isn't too sharp. It makes her curves a bit easier. How you handle your face shading is something I really like.
My only concern is the hand/wrist area. It is just a personal preference of mine not to bring the veins/muscle definition that far back off the knuckles. But the main thought is with the wrist. It just seems so small in comparison with her upper arm and shoulders.
I like how you carried the purple and pink from her lips down to her shoes!

Wonderful work! May you get to do more soon. :D

"I hope the result is a piece that is both alluring and sexually attractive, while maintaining truth to both forms of illustration."

If I do say so myself, this is indeed sexually attractive, you really nailed the word "Sexy" in this picture. I love how detailed the body is, and how still it has muscles, it still has that feminine look to it. and it looks even better on Artemis, I have to be honest though, I am into women with muscle's like these, so if you're afraid it doesn't look woman like. trust me, it is.

And what I love most about this picture, is the pose, the colors, since her pants and shoes are not so colorful, the bra and the hair and beauty shines and is one of the first things you notice about Artemis. Its always been like that for me. so all in all, Its great, and sexy.

And I notice also that in most of you're pictures, is that you can see a little bit of her panties, but not too much, that also keeps the hot girl thing going. so keep it up Spacecowboy!

Artemis' pretty face is definitely win :}
and I'd say her bod in your style, is actually less muscular than many real-life fitness models

ie Artemis' ultrafitness is nicely displayed, but she retains feminine curves, so keeps general appeal.
A tricky balance~!

Damn. This is really good. The muscles are well toned, but not overly so like a lot of drawings now a days, and it still retains the curves and facial structure.

This is what I'm talking about. You can see muscles defined in her body especially in her abdomen and her arms. I love seeing that she still very feminine since having those muscles didn't diminish her sexy curves. This is the type of body any woman should envy.

WOW thanks DarkPhoneiXSaga! When I originally ran this poll to see what kinds of features people liked on the musculature and curvy-ness, the main compromise I came up with was to mold the muscles in a curved fashion to meet regular sexy curved proportions.
