When I draw, I try to make the characters pose realistically.  A lot of comics, you see the men in dramatic poses and the women in sexy poses that you would never see everyday people doing (this actually becomes a gag in Sound Waves #13.  A man on the dock has an underwater speaker that is playing mermaid songs.  Rhapsody approaches him on the dock and breaks into a series of precious girly poses to make the guy tell her what he's doing.  Then it's back under the water and her body language is normal again).

This is the main factor in standard comic book art -- realism is bad.  Dynamism is more important.

Even when it doesn't make any sense.

DC is publishing a Starfire one shot under their DC Universe Presents title, and here's the cover.  I have stared at this thing for several minutes, and I not only cannot figure how Starfire is flying since the curve indicates she is traveling sideways (like the cartwheel jump in Strider), but I'm trying to figure out how exactly her boobs are not popping out.  Can you figure it out?  Answers on a postcard, please....

As for the flight...no clue. As for the costume... glue. Just ask Cassandra Peterson about how to stay "in costume".
