Vicky Velocity No. 168 by bogmonster Vicky Velocity No. 168 by bogmonster
based on the paul smith cover to uncanny x-men # 168 [link] here's my last submission for the month for the :icondeviantuniverse: may challenge. not sure exactly where it wold fit into the deviant universe storylines, but it was a cool cover to do!

one thing this month has taught me (for these are artists's CHALLENGES and things are meant to be learned from the experiences) is that i need to draw more heroes with battle damage! it looks pretty damn cool.

of course, you've got to be careful with that kind of thing. you could run into the old "captain kirk" style of fighting where the hero gets their shirt ripped off after, like, one punch.

anyways, on to next month and the wonderful challenges it brings!

Those must be some pretty serious wounds that she's suffered through! Does her accelerated metabolism allow her faster healing? This is a classic cover indeed!:)

she has some "accelerated" healing (snicker snicker) yeah.

I thought she might! So does that mean she's constantly wolfing down food like most average apeedsters do these days(now that a little science let them know that such accelerated speeds would put a person's metabolism through the roof!)?:)

i never thought about it like that. i thought it might make her body super efficient with foods. she would get absolutely every amount of nutrition she could out of everything. i don't usually show her eating much more than gum, but she should eat more, i guess.

She would have to eat lots more to properly sustain herself, and even more so before a big battle!:)

Well, maybe it doesn't have to fit in with any of the stories. One thing I've observed about comic books is that 90% of the time, the cover doesn't accurately represent what happens in the actual story. It pisses me off.

that's true. i thought about having this be the "cover" to my thunder force short story, but vicky only got emotionally beat up there. then i thought maybe it would be a cover for the "thunder force assemble" story, but there was no floor or fighting with vicky in that one either (even though she was THIS fearful in the story)

in the end, it's just an image of vicky. plain and simple.
