A Villain! Here's the FIRST villain drawing I've done for Ultra Fem. She doesn't have a name yet, but she is based on a REAL person. Her name is ~Katincat~, a goth model whose Yahoo group can be found on my links list at right. It will be a LONG time before this character shows up in the pages of Ultra Fem... probably a YEAR! She'll need that lead-in time, though. She'll be a BIG DEAL when she finally shows!

Also, I e-mailed out the second week of Ultra Fem earlier today! And I DID get a couple of new subscribers this week. Tell your friends!!!

I completed the full inking for page 4 today, and just scanning it took longer than usual because I did it in so many disconnected pieces. The color job for this one will be tough because there are so many characters and details in it. *sigh* After tomorrow's page mails out to subscribers, I won't even be two weeks ahead!

INK! Here's the inked figure of UF in all her glory! Wow, I love this woman! Now that she's made her grand entrance in the comic (this page is due out on Oct 14), I can really start showing her off. This drawing really captures the beauty and the... irresistible pulchritude that I've been dreaming of for her.

I've added some details to her costume. It's no longer just a full-body leotard. There are snaps and zippers in the seams so she can have 'easy access' to the chest and crotch areas. (She'll be needing that access regularly!)

This is getting exciting. I hope some of you who read this can consider subscribing!

DONE WITH PAGE 3! Finally, after redrawing it FOUR times, I got what I wanted and colored / lettered it all! And now I can start in earnest on page 4, which will be due out on Oct 14. This picture is a sketch preview of Ultra Fem's grand entrance!

Subscribe already!

Week 3 still isn't done!! Yikes!! I have completed the color work for almost the entire page, but I've re-drawn the last panel THREE TIMES because I'm just not happy with it. This is slowing things down!

WEEK 1 is away! The first installment of Ultra Fem e-mailed out to subscribers earlier today. Hope everybody likes it! Next week's page is ready to go, and page 3 is almost done. Page 4 is in the pencil stage. It's been fun so far, and I'm looking forward to more!

BIG DAY TOMORROW! No previews to post today. Just a reminder that TOMORROW is the day for the FIRST installment of Ultra Fem! Can't wait!

Tuesday, September 20, 2005

Inks for WEEK 3 got done last night. I completely re-designed and re-pencilled much of the page. Glad I did, too. Looks much better. (That's a sample at left.)

I probably won't get WEEK 4 done by Friday. In fact I'm SURE I wont. But that will still leave me 3 weeks ahead, and by the following Friday, I'll be at LEAST a month ahead, probably 5 weeks.

This is going GREAT! And I'm having fun!

The PENIS That Wasn't There:

There are a number of viewers out there who insist that I have designed Ultra Fem as a she-male, that I gave her a penis in THIS DRAWING. That's obviously not true, but they won't give it up! (Yes, I'm talkin' to YOU,!) So I cooked up the little graphic above.

I have to say that this has been one of the most interesting and entertaining little drawings I've ever done!

Completed the lettering for Ultra Fem page 2 (due out on the 31st) and the pencil work for page 3. That's a teaser from page 2 on the left.

Also finished a REALLY filthy drawing for this month's Comerotica Jam. Couldn't spend a lot of time on it, but it was fun!

Friday, September 16, 2005

Finished the lettering and everything else for page 1 tonight! It is COMPLETELY done, with a whole week to spare! At this rate, I'll have my first month of pages ready by next Friday. Just where I wanted to be!

And I got my first YEAR-LONG subscription, too!

I am getting ready to make my first distribution to my priviledged few subscribers - - it's a NUDE VERSION of the famous (or maybe INfamous) Ultra Fem wallpaper that started this whole thing a couple of months ago.

ONLY subscribers will get this kind of stuff!

Here's a teaser pic for page 1. Want to know what happens next?? You have to SUBSCRIBE!

Got some really significant work done tonight. More than half finished the color for page 2, and it's going quicker than page 1 did. I'm making up short-cuts as I go, and I've also decided that there's no need for all the extra layers and color details on latter pages. The opening splash pages for each story arc will get all the goodies.

It looks like this is how things will go:

day 1) pencil two pages
day 2) ink those two pages
day 3 & 4) color first page
day 4 & 5) color second page
day 6) letter both pages

So in less than a week, I can get two weeks worth of pages done. With two weeks of work, I'll have the next month's pages in the can. This is perfect.

After 5am again, and I have completed the color work for the FIRST page of ULTRA FEM! It went quicker than I thought it would. I finished it before 4am, so I took a few minutes to fire off a piece for Illustration Friday.

You can see it here:

I also posted a preview of the background art for page 1. It can be found at both of the Ultra Fem groups.

I'm having FUN, and I'm really looking forward to the 23rd, when the comic will OFFICIALLY START!

Monday, September 12, 2005

UGH! 5:30 am! I completed almost all of the color work for page 1. Lighting effects and other special stuff still to do. But it's coming along!

A handful of subscriptions have trickled in, and I'm glad to have them, but there need to be more!

I had to close my portfolio account at because they censored me. They removed one of my pictures. I only had FOUR images on display there. The one they removed was the Night Mistress wallpaper. If you've seen it, you know how tame it is. No nudity, no crotch shot. She just happens to be holding a dildo. She's not DOING anything with it.

So I cursed them out and left. Turns out you can't actually DELETE your account, though. Their help file says that they "keep all accounts for historical purposes." WTF?? Their motto is "community spirit through working together." Is that a joke? What kind of art "community" has a "Policy Violation Team"??

Short story: don't go to - they suck.

Productive Night!

It's approaching 8am, and over night I finished the ink work for pages 1 and 2 of the web-comic, and I also completed a character design for 'Firework.'

I also re-designed J'izz J'onzon in a sudden fit of creativity. I am VERY pleased with the results! I was never really happy with the original design. I wanted her to be very weird but also a turn-on. By exaggerating her four huge breasts even more, as well as her hips, and also by making her completely naked, I think I got the sexy part accomplished. I also made her face less human and more menacing. She was just too 'cute' before.

Lost day.

I didn't get anything new done Friday. Spent the day wrestling with a broken toilet, going back and forth to the hardware store for parts. Then, inexplicably, I fell asleep and SLEPT ALL NIGHT! How novel.

So I lost the whole day when I need to be getting new material done EVERY DAY. Needless to say, I'll be busy all weekend. And HAPPILY so!

The Pinnacle ©2005 Lisa M. Hayes
Busy night!

It's 6:45 am. Not only did I finish the preliminary inking for pages 1 and 2, I also inked AND colored the character design artwork for Batboy and The Pinnacle. Both of them are now in the archives at my eLista and Yahoo groups.

Thursday, September 8, 2005

This week I started in earnest on the first installments of ULTRA FEM, the first page of which I've scheduled for Sept 23.

Last Night, I completed the preliminary pencil work for pages 1 and 2. There will need to be some finishing pencils, but they're pretty much done. I'm going to have to work on getting through the pencils as quickly as possible and do most of the detail work in the inking process. That will save me a LOT of time in the future, and I'm sure I'll get better and more disciplined about it as I go.

I'm debating whether to ink these two pages or create pencils for pages 3 and 4. I want to be working at least a month ahead. This first UF adventure looks like it's going to be at least 6 pages long.

Last night, I also completed the basic design drawing for BIG GIRL, as well as a BG wallpaper. People seem to like them!


ULTRA FEM is a weekly adult web-comic featuring the superheroine Ultra Fem and her teammates, the Ultra Fem Five. (That's her tremendous ass over there.)

>> The comic is sexually explicit, and is available by subscription only. Subscription details should be listed on the right side of this page. <<

I started this blog to promote the comic, to talk about the process as I go along (it's a new thing for me) and to post sketches, both UF-related and otherwise.

Previews and archives of images can be found at
