Rebelette by DrewGardner Rebelette by DrewGardner
This was drawn as a contribution to the SuperGirls Inc "Creator owned character theme gallery'. It features 'Rebelette', a superheroine created and owned by Mike Shoemaker.
The pic itself is pretty stright forward, but I spent a bit more time on the background than usual. only the figure and that lump of machinery that she is propped up against were scanned in as pencil... next time, I'll draw a whole background to colour.. I'm trying to improve my skills, you see.
Well, Enjoy! DREW

More and yet less revealing than Wonder Woman's outfit. I approve!Thumbs Up

This could be Anne Colleton, a character from Harry Turtledove's Timeline-191, a series which I call A Game of Confederates, as it's very similar in story structure and character treatment to A Game of Thrones, except that it's about Confederates who continue fighting the Union as late as the 1940s. The first volume is How Few Remain, and the second volume American Front introduces Ann, the belle-turned-commando that I like to call Scarlett O'Xena. There are plenty of other wild subplots and novelties in the series, including Damyankee aeroplanes bombing Richmond and Memphis while their Damrebel counterparts bomb Philly and New York, and hilarious sex scenes involving General Custer, who has cheated his fate and lived for years beyond his appointed Last Stand to get into very impressive shenanigans.

Good work!

Good Rebelette, but my own better!!! ;)

Very awesome work, man. Rebellette seems like a cool heroine. Not enough southern heroes. :)

I know some people have been critical of the image for using the Rebel Flag, and though I know some people still use it as a symbol of hate and some people are offended by it, the majority of us in the southern US see it as a symbol of our regional pride, and nothing more. It would be cool to see an image of Rebellette and Miss Adventure fighting side-by-side to show that it's not a matter of racism. :)

gorgeous work.

She is very beautiful and you did a great job on her. Her green eyes are very striking. I can say that, although Confederate flags are a piece of Americana, I would not personally chose to display them or celebrate them. There are a lot of folks in this land who rally behind that symbol for the wrong reasons. There are still more who would associate anyone who uses that symbol as one of those short-sighted, hateful people. Both are mistaken, but I don't want to add to the problem if I don't have to.

I love the ol' General Lee and remember her from my Childhood and that is all I ever associted with the symbol. If I had her parked in my driveway, I think a number of my friends of color might be hurt by it.

Great work on the art nonetheless.

Yeah, I got a lot of comments about that when I first posted this,which was quite surprising to me.. I bet that Mike Shoemaker (who owns this character) must recieve a lot of flack for it..
It's one of those things that I (as a non-american) didn't realy think that much about, but there's obviously a lot of history and tension related to the confederate flag,,,
But like you say, I also only related to this as being the symbol painted on top of the car on 'Dukes of hazard' for the longest time, and certainly don't have anything but respect for african-americans (more than I have for caucasian-americans that's for damn sure)..

Considering that you created Miss Adventure, I'd say that was obvious. ;)
DrewGardner Featured By Owner Apr 23, 2005   Digital Artist
:laughing: That might be a bad example, - Poor old MissAdventure doesn't get an awful lot of respect... but she's well loved. ;)
NCWeber Featured By Owner Apr 23, 2005  Hobbyist Digital Artist
She's got my respect. :drool: Erm....yeah... ^^;

great work on the background and wonderful job on the character
makkan Featured By Owner Oct 26, 2004
wow.. I love that background.. it really gives the picture depth and reminds me of all those old pixelgraphic games ...
azraelengel Featured By Owner Jun 11, 2004
That's an awesome background on there. It blows me away.

The way you did the shading on Rebelette looks so dramatic; it goes quite well with the background. You have a beautiful shading style. (Nice secondary lighting, too!)

Nice work.
DrewGardner Featured By Owner Jun 15, 2004   Digital Artist
Gee, thanx azraelengel! Im glad you like the lighting, now all I have to do is start doing some decent drawings to colour and realy show off my skill. I have been doing too much colouring and not enough drawing lately, so hopefully I'll be able to get back into it, and do some stuff thats actually decent. I'm sure everyone agrees.
=) Thanx for the comment! DREW

woa~ nice colors!!! :thumbsup: :)
btw, thanks a lot for faving chamcham!!! ^_^
GawainesAngel Featured By Owner Apr 27, 2004
I love the way you did the lighting in this -- it's rare that you see something strange (like blue lighting) done so well! Her pose is (as always) fantastic, and really the background is brilliant, too. I love how warm and natural the mountains look against the harsh machinery of the the area that she's in. Fabulous composition, really!
DrewGardner Featured By Owner Apr 28, 2004   Digital Artist
That's a perceptive comment! I'd accept kudos for the composition if I hadn't made it up as I went. But thanks all the same! =) DREW

Awesome shading and pose. ;)
DarkPenguin Featured By Owner Apr 26, 2004
Yeah Drews back! :boogie: And as usual the pic looks awsome. nice work :D

The background looks really, really good. Very impressive.

And for those of you who dislike the outfit, that really isn't the point, now is it? Drew didn't come up with the character, he's just drawing her. And even so, that wouldn't make the piece any less fantastic would it? I think not! :D

DrewGardner Featured By Owner Apr 26, 2004   Digital Artist
Wow, interesting response about the Confederate flag.. So what do you guys think about the Dukes of Hazzard?
Thanks for the comments! DREW 8-)
Sa-Tina Featured By Owner Apr 26, 2004
wow shes pritty!! I don't know realy anything about that flag issue soo i guess i'm nutural..XD beautiful drawing tho!!
digitalalchemy Featured By Owner Apr 26, 2004
The time you put into the background on this pic really makes it look 100% better... although im not wild about the outfit. Good stuff this!

Thank god it's not anime!

damn dude...this is awesome...I like the reflection of the blue lights on the legs...really cool. Plus she's so damn sexy ;)
Decahedron Featured By Owner Apr 26, 2004
I like this picture a lot, except for the Confederate flag outfit. I'm not into racist chicks. Other than that though, it's amazing.
thrudjelmer Featured By Owner Oct 12, 2014
Indeed... this picture should be redone but without the costume.  ;)
