Nordguard Chicks by screwbald Nordguard Chicks by screwbald
Firstly, thanks to everyone who came to the Nordguard Sneak Peek Panel last Saturday at FC! Hope you enjoyed it!

And now, with FurtherConfusion behind me, it's time to hit the drawing board in earnest--literally, I suppose. I have a long stretch between now and those far distant deadlines and old obligations. This is the time (6 months or so) I've set aside to devote 100% of my waking life into the comic's completion. I'm still expecting an official release date announced this year and I believe (barring blizzards, meteor showers and spontaneous combustion) we're right on track.

That said, expect more updates. For instance, between today and yesterday, there's another 4 pages on paper and the night's still young! 40 some pages down, only another 60 some to go. I think I'll need more coffee.

The scene I'm currently working on takes place in a way station somewhere between point A and point B. The team's dressed down for camp and their last hot meal for a while...I realized midway I didn't have any "under garments" designed for Freki and Pi to be hanging out in when they aren't decked out for subzero temperatures, so I had to work those out before cleaning up the page for it's eventual painting. And, as it happens, sketching those typical warm-up scribbles derailed into drawing Nordguard chicks in their sexy turn-of-the-century military-esque undies.


Now, of course, you can see larger images over on blogspot ([link]) or the Nordguard LiveJournal ([link]), and a ton more stuff on the Nordguard Website (www.nordguard.com)

The illustration is awesome, but their faces don't look very feminine to me. Other than that it's great.

Yeah, I had the same thing in mind; not only that, but the arm on the character to the right looks rather masculine.

Very awesome, lookin' forward to this coming out this summer! Ignore all the people complaining they don't look womanly enough. Not every woman needs DDs and the curves to be a woman. These are girls in the military, as it were, roughing the North. They've got to have some muscle and tone, and I think they look just like they should for their position and situation in life. Keep up the great work, we're all cheering you on!

Except for if London and Nickel start getting frisky with each other or anything like that, then I'll have to say you've lost me :P haha

Female anthro is so hard to draw... I think the only- actually this is not exactly anatomically "anthro"- successful female is Jenna from that animated movie Balto. I see you were aiming for the tough girl look though. Awesomeness! :D

Just to give some constructive criticism... these females look more like males, honestly. I understand that they may live out in rugged and harsh conditions (well, from what I have gathered of your comic that is what I think the conditions are) but they should still have more of a feminine look... more soft I would say. And their bodies should be more... curvy, in their hips and such. They should have a bit more of an hourglass look.

I believe the Collie's face looks more manly... she should have softer features. I'm trying to think of how to explain it properly, to help give you constructive critique on this work instead of useless crits. Her upper arm looks nice, but the lower arm looks a little bit too... buff? Fluffy? Mm, I am not sure. And the husky looks very, very buff. Her head looks a bit disproportioned towards the rest of it, too.

Again, I am just trying to help. ^^; Overall you generally draw pictures that are proportioned well and show the right features. But most of your art is Male themed.

Actually; when you compare them to female body builders; I'd say that the anatomy is rather spot on. If the artist wants to make them butch/body builder in appearance; then they should have the sharper features and the manly looks to their faces. Perhaps the artist was going for this.

Whoops! Sorry, that first comment wasn't meant for you--t'was for someone else on another submission and I have a twitchy reply finger apparently.

Though, in case you haven't seen 'em, there are a lot of the characters on the website plus some of the sketched pages. :]
