Is There Any Such Thing As A Anti-Super-Hero?

What do you think, dear readers? Is Madam X a super hero? Let's make this the question of the week. Send me your thoughts on the subject, either via comments of email. Email this blog at madamxandcrew@gmail.com anytime you feel like it. If I get enough feed back maybe we'll make this a weekly or bi-weekly feature of Madam X and Crew.
OK, down to business, stating with the reason for my query:

Illustration Friday from last week (1/19/07):

I'm not sure if the scan of this drawing is crooked, or the actual drawing is.

Here are two watercolor paintings for an old Illustration Friday topic: "dance" (6/16/06)

These are two of my favorite kinds of dancers to draw. My third favorite is flapper! Awesome!

Illustration Friday from 1/26/07: "red"

My first impulse was to do a red headed girl, or girls. I even sketched them out. But then I thought to sketch a boy, too. And this is the only one that got paint. This is the only one that ended up interesting me.

This is a commission I did for my friends Daryl and Janie. They are really wonderful people and artists. I did slightly change the piece from how you see it now. I made her lips pink!

These are two little warm up paintings I did while getting ready to paint the dancers. I'm experimenting with doing a sketch, then over painting, then erasing the pencil makrs. I don't usually do that. The girl on the left is done as I tend to, with the pencil lines still there, under the paint. The one on the right is the newer way. Any thoughts?

I'm so off track with blogging and The MX Newsletter...
I gotta catch that train again!

Love and rayguns,

like all of them more than a lot; your colors are just great, gestures, too, and i like the ones with the pencil, b/c they show more of the process. xox

you are so good at what you do, and keep getting better.
i think the project should demand pencil lines or no. i think without the lines, the girl on the right comes off kinda "clean" and disneyesque in its being so.. but that's not neccessarily a bad thing.
depends on what you're going for, i think i'm saying. either way, they look awesome.

I have so much respect for people who can paint with watercolours! I like the ballet dancer; the blue dress is just gorgeous. I prefer the one without the pencil lines, but that's just a matter of opinion I guess.

All great stuff...and yes, there are anti-superheroes out there! Not all of them are supervillains, either.
