'You are SO looking down!' by VanHeist 'You are SO looking down!' by VanHeist
Nope, it's not flying. It's merely the top of the trajectory. :D

First, you get a good running start, build up some momentum, then make successively longer jumps until...this. (see also: why Gogo doesn't have a car). Not to fear, she can stick the landing, but that won't do anything about Andy's surely-soiled trousers.

A silly piece, i know. I need to draw more action-y stuff, since this is a character who SHOULD be depicted in action. Her cross-country travel method is a good start.

i like doing these fast sketchy drawings lately, too. Lower-res, more flaws, but i was never a fine artist :) enjoy!

Seriously though, I like this piece. It's not as polished and shiny as other pieces, but there's a certain warmth to it; it tells a story without saying a word and I like that. The characters look alive, they look human(oid?)

I've always enjoyed the crispness of your finished work, so this change is disappointing.

at least you're honest about it :)

i like both ways of going about it. With crisper, more finished work, the end result is more polished, but it's easy to fuss over it too much and sometimes it comes off a little stiff or overdone. With rougher work, the end result is messier (perhaps less professional), but i find it's more of a relaxing release a lot of the time too.

In the original comics of Superman, he wasn't able to fly. He was simply able to jump in a simular way to grasshoppers, jumping across full expanses of city.

The term "Able to leap tall buildings" becomes far more impressive when you take into account the fact that superman originally couldn't fly, and was actually jumping over them.

Gogo likes to make boys cry doesn't she?

I give props to Andy for knowing enough to keep his hands away from chest level as he holds on. Otherwise his landing might not be so gentle. :XD:

At risk of bursting a potential bubble, I'm not going high-fantasy with "Bomango" (i.e. elves and orcs or medieval stuff). Not to say there won't be anything cool or different occasionally, but just humans. And Gogo :P

Being a adrenaline junky means I never quite understand the terror of high velocity travel while perfectly safe. I mean; Gravity is a foe Gogo's beaten already, so surely it won't try anything?

i think it's more the "expect A, get B" principle, wherein a simple piggyback ride suddenly morphs into bounding at terrifying heights and peeing yourself :P

On a more technical note, I really like how her feet are blurred here. It gives a great sense of the motion and speed she's outputting.
