Storm II


From the responses to my not-Halle-Berry illustration for Illustration Friday (including MAGNUM'S!), I decided to give Halle "Storm" Berry a whirl.

Lotsa tight fitting shiny leather.

It wasn't a bad experience.  In fact, I enjoyed drawing her more than I did Lance Armstrong.  She's a much better role model.  Probably avoids bleached flour too.

Now, excuse me while I go do some situps or something.

  1. She really is beautiful. And she just gets more and more so as the years go by.
    I can see how she was more fun to draw than Lance. But surely you gave her a flaw somewhere, right?

    1. She is a natural beauty, so will most likely age well. Flaw? I'm not that creative.

  2. Way better than Lance. Nice leathers.

    1. Augh, the leather. I thought I would run out of pencil before I ran out of leather.

  3. You did a good job with Lance, I just don't like him. Everybody's got to like Halle, right? And you did a good job with her. I'm not so sure about this whole sit up plan though. Sounds like something I'm supposed to do. (groan)

    1. Ha, right. It's easier to create beauty with a pencil!

    1. Thanks RC. Comic book Halle wasn't too intimidating.

  5. I knew I'd like your HB; you even gave her Big Hair!
    But I'd still choose the weathervane to hang on the wall...liked it.

  6. I prefer her with short hair but that is a great drawing!

  7. My first impression was that this was your blonde self-portrait. But now that you mention it, I do see Halle Berry!

  8. O.K. I should do some situps. She is as perfect as your drawing! It pops into my eye at IF.
