The Speck! by Altalamatox The Speck! by Altalamatox
The final project for Illustration class was two pages about a superhero based off some aspect of ourselves.

In tribute to my vertical handicap, meet The Speck, a strange little adventurer who saves the days in the smallest of ways. Decided to let my superhero be female because as always I sorely need practice with drawin' the ladies.

There's a race of diminutive sizeshifting humanoids in my Network stories so this was a nice way to get me thinking about them again. So many visual jokes with itsy-bitsy characters, I enjoy thinking up alternate uses for small objects in the hands of someone to which they are not so insignificant.

I don't know how widely the plastic sandwich sword is used in the world, but that's what her trusty blades are. In the very least dignifying colors available. I love those things.

I love this!! I thought maybe those were plastic sandwich swords, but I wasn't sure till a read the description. I love those little things, too. ^_^ And I would totally read (if this were a comic), watch (if this was a movie/tv show), or play (if this was a computer game) this in three seconds. Such an amazing idea, and I love how you used small objects for her arsenal of weapons and tools. And your art is so much amazing! Love your style. :)

As a fellow altitudinally-challenged individual, I can unabashedly say that I desperately need more of The Speck in my life.

Okay, The Speck is my new favorite super hero! Amazing work on her and I love her equipment, DUST BUNNIES BEWARE! I sure hope she shows up here more often she sounds like she could be a super tone of fun. (no pun intended)

Somehow I get the feeling most people are best at drawing the sex they're attracted to, just by merit of noticing them more in daily life.
