SKETCH A DAY 40: POLARIS

I just got new drawing pads and pens, so I decided that from now on I'm going to do each sketch on one whole sheet of paper. In the past I was drawing two or three characters per page. I kind of like having the entire page now though. Maybe I was scared before to tackle a whole page, lol, who knows. In any case, here's the first of my full page sketches. This time it's Polaris from the X-Men. I always liked her and thought she had a cool costume. I dunno, maybe it was the funking head gear, lol. The thing that annoyed me about her though, was that they made her crazy and still continue to do it now and then. It reminds me of Magenta from Titans and Flash over at DC. Why is it that female characters with magnetic powers are all crazy while the guys aren't? I know the whole "polar" thing is something you'd think of when thinking of a magnetic character and that leads to crazy. But why not the guys and only the ladies get the crazy gene? Oh well, in my pic, Polaris isn't crazy.
