Mary Marvel by tombancroft Mary Marvel by tombancroft
I have never drawn Mary Marvel before, but have kinda always wanted to because she has two things I like: cuteness and a costume that is easy classic, easy to draw. I saw Mike Maihack's version of her the other day [link] and I thought it was time to jump in. Quickie Photoshop color on this one too. Bonus! I have a Supergirl that I did in a very similar pose....discovered that late into the drawing...

This is great! I think it really captures the essence of the character. I'm a HUGE Captain Marvel fan. I would love to see you do either an animated Captain Marvel like this or a comic!

This is really nice as per usual, pose, movement and expression. I like the effect of blasting through the clouds as well!

I love how she looks! She looks super cute as she's flying high in the sky! :D Who couldn't love a cute girl with a classic easy costume?
I love how much energy she seems to have! And love the detail that she sprinted through the puffy cloud!
Such a nice piece!

This is great! The trend these days does seem to be more to depict Mary as a freshman or sophomore in high school and you definitely capture that with the body pose & facial expression.

Nice! She also kinda looks like Roxanne from "A Goofy Movie." I was just watching a bit of it on TV the other day, and so when I saw this, I could sort of see elements of her, which I'm sure wasn't intentional, but hey, that's just me.

The pose is a great one, even if it's been visited before! I looked through your gallery 'til I found (what I assume to be) the Supergirl in question, and indeed it is kinda close, but your gallery's nearing 500 entries at this point. That's an awful lot of ideas to even keep track of, let alone avoid repeating :D

The good news is that comparing between the two this drawing has a stronger sense of looseness & freedom of line, a better-flowing arc through the pose and a more resolved composition! Hooray for improvement!

Thanks for that great analysis! I haven't looked at the Supergirl in a long time, but I knew it was similar.
