Attached image will be my composition,
I put her in a pose where she uses her vital parts/weapon: her left hand missle launcher and the right arm extruding spike, aside from her jet engine leg.
Background is a space/galaxy landscape.

You work pretty fast, man. When I saw the thread posted so late I figured you'd never make it. Looks like my assessment was faulty. Good luck!

Looking great!

I did just think I'd mention something though that I've learned from having read hundreds and hundreds of making ofs over the past few years, and that's that when working in 2d, working on your canvas evenly often yields great results, as that way the level of detail in all areas is equal, and you can work out problems at each level of detail. I've noticed that you seem to be working on an area at a time, and so thought I'd mention a different kind of workflow to you (and everyone else reading) so that perhaps you can try it out in your next piece?

Whatever works best for you at the end of the day is the best way to go of course, but I thought I'd quickly mention this as it's something I read from 2d artists alot so thought it might be helpful for the future
