Josie Warbirds of Mars Tshirt by DocRedfield Josie Warbirds of Mars Tshirt by DocRedfield
I wanted to do a classic 1940's style pin-up of my new character, Josie Taylor and be able to market it as a T-shirt on the Swag portion of the WARBIRDS OF MARS [link] website. As far as the pose goes, I think its one of my most classic pin-ups... I researched the lingerie, her Ray-gun and shoes. The color version I'm still making up my mind about...
If you like Retro-scifi, neo-pulp, dieselpunk, pin-ups, ufo's, martians, War of the Worlds, WWII, The Shadow, comic heroes, the 1940's, mid-century action adventure, or noir, then this is the webcomic for YOU!

Micron pens on strathmore 400, 9x12 Probably 10 or more hours

I love the Martian Jolly Roger! That's so freaking great!

And the portrait she has in the mirror reminds me of Stephen Collins' character of Jake Cutter from "Tales of the Gold Monkey!"

Violetta and I talked about it a bit last year. She'd seen an episode of it a long time before, when she was little. Then I was reading about it on Wikipedia and got to the "DVD Release" section, and read that its release was the very day I was reading! So we went out and found it at Best Buy.

Then we watched the whole thing over the next few weeks and loved every minute of it! :D

normally I like the black and white drawings more than color, but the colors on this one actually accent it. I think is because it help the feeling of 50s comic. Great job, love the three eye skull by the way.

Thanks very much! Yeah, the skull is the 'martian killers' symbol. We finally get to see one in the latest pages I've posted to the webcomic.
Glad I got that 'pinup' feel in your estimation!
