Speaking Of Drawing Women In Comics

I've mentioned before that part of my problem with drawing comic art is my awareness of the human body and its limitations.  I don't push the boundaries because it doesn't feel honest.  Also, I spend a lot of time agonizing over my layouts and placements so that people looking at the page have no trouble following what's happening.
