Named after the great two-parter from Batman:TAS because I couldn't come up with a better name.

As is usually the case, this started as a full-on airbrush piece but I failed in the early stages so I dropped in some line art for guidance. I'm OK with the piece but there's something that's off or isn't pushed in the right direction, possibly color-wise, and I have no idea what it is. Basically, I feel I don't possess the toolset to make this better.

Reminds me of Wildcats' Ladytron. The wall-socket bellybutton is a nice touch, mostly because you don't notice it straight away.

Completely line-less art is more than most people care to fool with. I stick to digital media so I can easily recolor inks if necessary.
Even if you didn't get the feel you were going for, it still looks good to the rest of us!

Thanks and glad you like it! I think I'm gonna try to do a line-less piece but with cel shading-type coloring. It should help me get an idea for shapes and stuff and, hopefully, help with my eventual airbrushing attempt. :)

Wow...this is amazing! Love the amount of detail that you put into her! Artistically, I think that everything looks fine for the most part; the only gripe that I have is that her hair doesn't look attached to her head at all. I know that you're going for the mohawk look, but it looks like it's behind her skull rather than being a part of her. But that's minor; I don't see any issues with color at all. This definitely looks like something that I would draw! :XD: Great job!

Thanks! And I felt the same way about the hair at first but I didn't give it much thought. I guess, in hindsight, that I should've put in the extra effort because you're right, it doesn't really look like it's part of her head. Oh, well.

I feel ya bro,I have a hard time working without lineart too. Also it seems to me like the image is either not cropped enough at the very bottom or perhaps it should be extended to show more of the legs, it just looks like its ended in the wrong place. The background is very nice and I enjoy the detail on the gun arm, I'm of course assuming its a gun arm, it feels like a gun arm.

It's totally a gun arm. :)
And yeah, the line art thing is a real bummer. I feel that without reference it's very difficult for me to do a more painterly piece without line art. I mean, I could cheat, delete the line art and then airbrush it in later in the same style but that kinda defeats the purpose of it, doesn't it? Oh, well.
