ROUND #223 :: Barbarella
Barbarella is the main character of a science fiction comic by Jean-Claude Forest, dating back to 1962. Barbarella was a sexy young woman who travelled through the galaxy to have many (sexy) adventures. In 1968 a campy movie was made starring Jane Fonda as Barbarella. The comic caused a bit of a scandal because of its slightly erotic content. However, the comic was also regarded as part of the sexual revolution, and Barbarella as an embodiment of the modern, free woman.
- Keywords are sci-fi, sexy and campy!

I can't imagine this will be very popular!
Awesome subject, well done!!
Trying to come up with an idea but all I seem to know about this character is what she looks like.
Makes reimagining her a challenge.
The most beautiful thing we can experience is the
mysterious. It is the source of all true art and all
science. He to whom this emotion is a stranger, who
can no longer pause to wonder and stand rapt in awe,
is as good as dead: his eyes are closed.
Curse you people, I have classes this week and I`m really trying to have a real life, and then you pull something like this...I haet you!
Naw, I love you guys like kittens, sunshine and bacon, but still...
Edit - Meh, kinda lost interest on this one...Oh well

LOL yes of course that's what I meant ;-)
Hope I can do an entry for this one but it may not eventuate - busy week planned and should really finish the drawing I've already started.
YES! ohh this is gonna be awesome.. i was just thinking "hmm there are no hot girls in my portfolio.." haha PERFECT topic
And in stead of quoting everyone else here, I actually though "Aaw, boring theme".
Might have something to do with the fact that I'm not overly interested in women, like the guys here... >_>
I'll have a go nonetheless.
here is what i got so far. int he bg there is going to be a huge jacked guy

I might put a background on it.
Barbarella starring in Underwater Supersoakers of Justice. In this tale Barbarella is saving the underwater supersoaker cache from being depleted completely by the greedy shark people of Finnstripe Village. Barbarella must venture through this underwater slum to reclaim order underwater as it once was, she will make friends and enemies along the way but one thing will always stay true, her rockin' bod.
Ok jokes aside I was thinking of somehow incorporating skin into this costume not sure how to do that just yet. and I was gonna add 2 sharks to either side of her or maybe 2 other babes squirting eachother, and to top it off maybe make the title and stuff to make it look legit. I suck at values/painting/everything so any crits would be appreciated.
Check out my sketchbook and comment/crit while you're there =)
will definitely finish this one...
Beeeewbs. This pretty much all I can do I guess with Dominance War going on and all as well, but maybe I can find more time
emerging : Great so far - I'm loving the colors!
wiggers : Man, the big hair is a great touch xD Keep an eye on the legs though, they're looking a little thin.
BAMeyer : I /dig/ the costume! Be careful not to lose her feet in the bg - the values are pretty similar.
fudoki The pose you've got is looking pretty static; maybe something more action-y? Also, careful on the legs, the calves especially - they're looking a little lumpy.
Pixeltuner : LOVE THE DRESS! 83 Although her left arm looks a little short? Could totally just be me though.
- - - - -
Here's what I have so far - Any crits or tips would be greatly appreciated. I'm planning on amping up the contrast a bit - I need more dark grays - but if anyone else can see anything I'd love to hear it.
i wanna get in on this but i don't know how much time i'll have to work on it this week. here's what i've got so far. i've just been playing around with different compositions and poses. i'm really liking this one though. still kind of early, but any crits are welcome
loooking good guys! here is some more progress
Cant see how i could do this femme fatale justice but stuff it ill try me best. Cant wait to some killer entries everyone
Heres my wip. Going for a more robo sexy kinda vibe. Sorry the quality is bad but I had to take a pic with my phone because I didn't want to take the page off of my pad and it wont fit on the scanner bed.
Just a quick question, what does everyone here define as campy? I envisioned 'camping gear' and homosexuality. But I think the campy thing is probably related to the era that this was created in. Any help anyone?
as quoted from wiki
Camp is an aesthetic sensibility wherein something is appealing because of its bad taste and ironic value. The concept is closely related to kitsch, and things with camp appeal are described as being "campy" or "cheesy". When the usage appeared, in 1909, it denoted: ostentatious, exaggerated, affected, theatrical, and effeminate behaviour, and, by the middle of the 1970s, the definition comprised: banality, artifice, mediocrity, and ostentation so extreme as to have perversely sophisticated appeal. American writer Susan Sontag's essay Notes on "Camp" (1964) emphasised its key elements as: artifice, frivolity, naïve middle-class pretentiousness, and ‘shocking’ excess. Camp as an aesthetic has been popular from the 1960s to the present.
Wiggers looking good. i love the hair!
BAMeyer i'd watch the highlight on her left hip where the suit turns dark. it makes it look as if its jutting out unnaturally and her thighs look a little large for her body, but that may just be me. the helmet design is really nice. i really like it sounds like you've got a great story to go with this. can't wait to see more work on it.
fudoki i would maybe loosen the pose up some she's looking a bit stiff. and use reference if you're not sure about something. i know its just a sketch, but its so much easier to do it right in the sketch phase than to go back and fix it later. hope this helps
Pixeltuner beeeewbs indeed! i really hope you can find the time to finish this. its looking good and i love her outfit.
MittyMandi i think you've pretty much said what needs to be said. its looking good and i like the back lighting (because i'm not brave enough to attempt it) ^_^
emerging this is great. lurve the colors and i totally vote for big jacked up guy in the bg! can't wait to see him
kissorkill her hand is throwing me off. is it turned inward? because that seems kind of an awkward position. but maybe that's just me. anyway you've got a nice start, and i totally dig the robo sexiness
oh and here's an updated sketch. haven't worked on it much. this head cold seems to get worse the later it gets.
Great stuff all!
This is my first chow so a huge leap into the unknown for me, please tell me if im doing anything wrong and C and C definately appreciated
Took about 2 hours trying to do a sexy sci fi pose
lots of work to do
