Lady Deathstrike by diablo2003 Lady Deathstrike by diablo2003
This is just a doodle I decided to color over the weekend. It's a slight variation on the Lady Deathstrike character from Marvel comics. I wanted to make her a bit more scarcrow-ish than her previous incarnations so I tattered her clothes a bit and made her skinnier than normal. Also added the knee pants to give her a mare martial arts feel.
pencils and colors both by me. Hope you dig it!

As an X-Men fan who became a follower because of the films, I like Lady Deathstrike. This is a great piece of art, and I love the woman who played her in X2. Of course, some naysayers say that Deathstrike was not supposed to be beautiful in the comics, but I think Kelly Hu was the right choice for the role and for a movie buff to behold. I don't care if she was supposed to look like a witch and be a cyborg in the comics, she was great in the movie, if a little short on lines.

the color scheme and sizing reminds me of a chicken her legs are thin and yellow striped her pants are wide just like chicken legs and her shirt is puffy and white and her hair is red like that thing hanging off a chickens beak. very cool those claws look deadly

Hmmm to me, she looks more like a mummy than a scarecrow. Still, I really do like it. It's a good piece, and Deathstrike is a cool character.

Only one other guy in the comments noticed... left's hand is good but the right one's out of proportion. Good job on everything else.

Yah, this is what Lady Deathstrike is supposed to look like. Attractive, but with definite hint of madness, a tinge of feral inhumanity.

Shreeder Featured By Owner May 28, 2005
Wow, I have been looking at your works, totally amazed. However, this picture stands out for me. It truly represents what I have always thought of Lady Deathstrike. You did a phenominal job of drawing her emotions and personality as opposed to just the physical character. Very impressive.

i love when she fights wolverine

My 1st impression was that you had 'Manga-fied' her & after reading your notes, i see why. She is an excellent character for marvel, even if she is not mainstream. Love the tattered look, fits in so well with her character make-up - like she's been in a battle recently. Would love to see her & Wolverine in a slice-up!

Mmmm.... this brings me back to the days that I would wake up early on one day of the week. While on the days I had school, I would get up about 20 to 30 mins. before school started to get up. But on Sat., I could get up at 5 or 6 in the morning just to watch cartoons.
And for sure, X-Men was on that list that I would watch every time. At one point, I had the slightest detail memorized in any particular episode. So I still remember how the decided to introduce lady Deathstrike. Quite interesting, I must say.

I love the style that you used with her. The raggedy, scarecrow look does her so much justice. Excellent rendition of this very interesting character. :)
