Nordick cover pencils by MichaelDooney Nordick cover pencils by MichaelDooney
Here are the pencils for a comic cover for Heroes of the North character 'Nordik'. HOTN is a Canadian webseries chock full of beautiful heroines in really nice latex costumes...what's not to love?
Nordick is impervious to cold and I amped up her mystical side with the polar bears and Northern Lights.

Check out Heroes of the North here [link] and a Nordick online comic here! [link]

I like the fact that even though you know she doesn't belong in the picture you made it fit wonderfully, the bears look awesome and of course she is stunning

Just so damn nice !!! The compo is wonderful and I love the lady's pose, but these bears are just so cool.
Plus I dunno who will take the task of putting final colors but if rightly done the nothern lights will kill up the cover !
Two thumbs up.

I ink and color my own stuff whenever possible...I just posted the final color art so you can see I went all out with the northern lights to get some more color in the scene.

Yup, definitely a fine job. ;)

I'm just alittle surprised the full foreground (lady n bears n snow ground) do not be a little darker overall to match the night -still- lighting ambience, but put this way final res allows to keep all the details on the characters (both human and animals) finely seeable : great for the inking stage's real a blast.

And... do really really like the polar bears idea alot. :dance:

Love the concept and the feel of the piece. The only thing I noticed is that she's only about six heads tall. Her torso looks fine, so the legs must be a bit short. Reverse the image, you'll probably notice it better.

I see what you mean, it's mostly her right leg.

It's a small thing. On the whole it's an awesome picture!

Gee, I hate being too critical, you now I love your stuff. But I just noticed something else that bothers me... The bear's shoulder doesn't even reach her waist.

The Polar Bear is the world's biggest land carnivore. An adult bear at the shoulder would reach to about the chest of a man, close to shoulders of a woman.

At this proportions it looks more like a dog with a big head.

Well, I just saw the finished art in the Heroes of the North website. It looks awesome, so never mind the leg thing.

I've never done polar bears before so I was intimidated at first, but once I jumped in, I just kept adding more ;)

Superb!!! Great pencils, beautiful shapes and I like how the shot looks very action-oriented yet retain lots of characterization.
