Geek Native once called this “drawing the impossible” back when we looked at Michael Lee Lunsford’s fully dressed superheroines.
I like these additional designs from Lord Ingvard. He’s an illustrator who was experimenting with alternatives… but has found out that not everyone on the internet appreciates it. Amazingly, he’s been forced to offer apologies for these concepts, writing;
Believe it or not, I actually do understand the majority of critism and frankly, I don’t disagree. I suspect, though, that more than anything it was the tone with which I tried to make my point that rubbed people the wrong way. To be honest, that was just my lame-ass attempt at being snarky or funny, but for most, I just came across as a huge asshole. Hindsight is 20/20, lesson learned.
Then later on;
And don’t get me wrong, I’m not try to get all puritanical on everybody; I have no problem with women expressing their femininity or sexuality. In fact, there are a bunch of very talented female illustrators out there (straight) who quite enjoy drawing sexy pin-up girls and so forth. Great stuff. And you’re right, there are some muscled-up, near-naked super-dudes like the Hulk, Namor, and Conan already out there.
