Getting the Elusive Female Audience

Thomwade shows us all how to impress female comic book fans in Advice for Artists & Writers: Getting the Elusive Female Audience. My favorite of the list:

6. Trace Porn: If you do decide to go for more realism, trace porn! This way, you get those rare women who want a more plausible body type. And bonus: poses. By tracing porn you can get those realistic poses and facial expressions that occur when fighting villains. You can really capture the closed eyes and wide open mouth that scream "OH YESYESYESYES! I am kicking your assssssssssssssss!" Plus, the girl is already naked, so you can draw the costume as it should be...looking like body paint.

Finally, Greg Land's secret strategy revealed!
