How to Draw Women the Rob Liefeld Way: Knifetits!

The most important thing to remember when drawing women is never look at an actual woman, you might start to realize what human anatomy looks like, and you certainly don't want that. This is a mistake many beginning artists make.

We will be drawing the female character, Knifetits. (What? You don't believe Knifetits is a Liefeld created character? Go ahead, look through every, single Liefeld drawn comic and prove me wrong. You will soon find out that you can't look at Liefeld's "art" for more than two minutes without your head actually exploding. Just take my word for it...Let's move on...)


First, draw the right arm directly in the middle of the page. Give it lots of detail before moving on to the rest of the drawing. Don't worry about the hand for now, (or, ever. C'mon, when has anyone ever bought a comic based on the fact that the cover character has realistic hands?) This is a strong character, so give the arm lots of rope-like muscles,.

Then, draw the head kind of, you know, attached to the arm. Give her a jutting jawline, super-sexy eyes, pouty lips and angry eyebrows. Yeah, women look like that, sure.


Now, give her lots and lots of crazy hair. This is the Nineties, and we need to be extreme! Remember, extreme hair is very, very important on a comic book character. It is so important that you should probably spend more time drawing the hair than anything else.


Okay, now for the fun part. We will put her in the classic Boobs and Butt Pose. This is where you can see her boobs and her butt, at the same time!  Give her gigantic boobs (don't forget the knives!), and a nice round butt. Don't worry about connecting them, we have a little trick for that later.   And huge thighs, she's strong, and strong women have huge thighs, again, with those cool, rope-like muscles.


Give her a wad for a hand and put a wicked sword in it. Oh, how about putting the sword in her hand in a very awkward way, like upside down? Aw, yeah, now we're getting extreme! Put a lot of nicks and scratches in the sword, because you know how bad women are at taking care of their swords, ammirit? Besides, she's got a couple more on her back, so, it's all good.

Here's the special trick for that pesky area between her boobs and her butt, put some pouches there! Brilliant! And that leg and arm look kind of boring, so put some pouches there, too.


Ink and color. Remember, when inking, excessive lines are your friends. If you make a mistake, just add some more lines, which will be so awesome, the reader will be too distracted to notice. Like a herd of zebras.

Now, color the pouches brown, and everything else like it's made out of chrome, all shiny and extreme, especially her butt. Shiny butt, that's all it takes, and no one will care that she doesn't have a spine or internal organs.


Put her in front of some ambiguous, extremely unlikely background, like, say, some exploding hotdogs.


Finally, add an extra-big, super-pretentious signature that looks like it's on like a piece of flying shredded paper. Booyah!

There you have it. Knifetits!

That's it, just back, because I wanted to post some bloggy stuff in a bit.

Hi! I am starting my final year at school. I can't wait to finally be out of school. Don't really have much to say except that I hope to post more than three times this year, haha.
oh yeah, and to post this ego-maniacal rabbit...

Hiyas all! So, sharpeners have become the bane of my existence. I think I have tried at least 8 this year. I have yet to find one that is even satisfactory, let alone good. I was terribly disappointed in the KUM Palomino long point. It worked fabulously ...for ONE DAY! Then it started reliably breaking the leads of my precious precious Palomino pencils. Grrr. I've tried three electric sharpeners, several wedge, two long pointers, a hand crank. Most wedges will work ok for a while, some are made crummy and never quite work right. The best so far has been a KUM brass wedge, it's heavier and that seems to make a more even point. But I want to find a GOOD sharpener with a shavings catcher. Aye.

Passing it on.
Since I'm kinda committed to doing this now:

The first five people to respond to this post, will get some form of art, by me, about [or tailored to] them. I make no guarantees about quality or type, but I will assure that I will give it good effort and that the art will be individual to you.

The only catch, of course; as with most memes, if you sign up, you have to put this in your own journal as well.

1. Dunno what it might amount to, could be graphical, musical, poetic. I'm using the broad definition of art here.
2. I have limited time and resources so turn around may be slow, but I'll try to be reasonable.

The grad students are almost finished with the new MFA gallery. We painted today for about four hours. Painting the ceiling was like running a gauntlet; I'd paint for about a minute, then rest for two, then paint, then go to the water fountain...repeat. (oh, yes, it was as hot as an oven, a steamy oven, I had sweat dripping along my ears; yuck!) However, afterward, painting the walls was fun and easy. The glorious name the teaching committee decided on for this gallery was "Truss". Isn't that what's done to a pig before it's barbecued? Anyway, as much as I cringe at the thought of having artwork up at the "Truss Gallery", it should be good for exposure on first fridays.

You scored 60 darkness...
You love violence of spirit and mind. More than that you enjoy the idea that you are better than everyone else and that you can be judge, jury, and executioner. If you have a conscience, go vigilante. We need those scumbag criminals off the streets, and you're just the person to do it. If people get on your bad side, there's no limit to the pain and suffering you can give them.

You scored 5 Honor, 0 Justice, 6 Adventure, and 12 Individuality!
Arr matey. You may belive in honor, and justice, and you certainly have a sense of adventure. But mostly, you play by your own rules. Your code is your own and you are flexible in most situations.

Dress flamboyant and look into a parrot. I think you'll do fine.

Well, I'm back to the land of perpetual steam room (not in a good way), Bizzaro-world, and I miss San Diego already. Comic-con was fun, and I'm happy to have gotten to see all of you that I got to see, and miss those that I missed seeing. Comic con was soooo crowded this year, I could hardly walk through the dealer floor. I had to cover it in about 45 minute sections before getting fed up with the hordes of peoples and going upstairs to sit for a while, and I don't think I made it through the entire thing during the entire weekend. I went to preview night because I thought it would be less crowded, but, holy crap, I swear it was as bad as Saturday. It's become a mess lately, but I still had a lot of fun, it's one of the few times during the year I can be a part of something with 130,000 other people with the same interests. It is awesome, exciting, and totally exhausting. I suppose it's a good thing it only happens once a year. To everyone I only get to see at Comic-Con, see you next year!
