X-23  -  day 42 by unsolvedenigma X-23  -  day 42 by unsolvedenigma
this is X-23 for :iconbattle-artist: battle of the week.

I really really probably shouldnt have signed up this week since ive been busy as crapola - but the character is sooo awesome.
spent ~6 hrs, got up at 500am this morning to finish this before i went away this weekend - so im sorry for the anatomy inaccuracies. >.<;

my opponent and i have very different styles this week so it might be more of an aesthetics battle than anything. XD
at least thats what i think. >_>;

and YES - i used the left4dead hand as a the ref hand at the bottom of the tombstone.
and YES - adding that weird mausoleum building probably ruined the drawing but well - its too late now. XD

enjoy! - comments and especially redlines over the drawing as critiques are welcome. C:

I love how you have such a delicate style and still managed to make her look like such a strong character

Did I say that it reminds me of Sana Takeda a little?
What a nice pic =)

Yours was one of my favorites this week. It was striking and beautiful. Don't be discouraged that comic book art (and by comparison, judging) doesn't always hold beauty in the highest esteem.

thank you C:
i can totally respect peoples' difference in aesthetics. C:
and its especially hard when the styles are really different.

i hope i didnt come off as being too bitchy or anything - i will blame the part of me that is a bit of a sore loser. =P

only thing to do - practice my backgrounds - improve anatomy - learn composition - come back to another battle with a better piece right? >D

You forgot one....have fun.

I probably take BA less seriously than most (the majority of my art are sports cartoons after all), but listen to the enthusiam from the masses in your comments, not the rulings of individuals.
