Our space-traveling blerd is back, only this time she’s taking no prisoners. Behold this gorgeous new character art by Chris Williams, featuring original SlickforceGirl Vanessa Valentine holding her ground on a foreign world. You may be wondering—what on earth is she doing out there? The answers will come soon enough.
Penciler Chris Williams and inker Jake Isenberg have teamed up on several of our audience favorite Slickforce pieces, so here’s a deeper look inside their creative process. Above is the original pencil work from Chris. Below are Jake’s Inks. And below that, the final colors rendered by Blond The Colorist.

Comikaze is only a few months away, so you know what that means…more Slickforce art is on the way!
Artist Chris Williams has been turning out a steady stream of stunning character pieces for the SlickforceGirl tribe this year. Here is his latest work featuring firefighter Kaitlynn Connor as she braves the inferno. This is our first time working with colorist Blond who did an incredible job capturing the warm/cool contrast, and we’ll post the standalone inks by Jake Isenberg in a future entry so you can fully appreciate them.
It’s a scorcher here in southern California, so what better time to release this blazing hot new faux cover by SlickforceGirl artists Corey Knaebel and Ula Mos?
Fans love our Desert Mechanic Jessica character, no doubt in large part due to model Jessica Burciaga‘s endearing portrayal of our team’s newest hero. If you missed her dynamic debut, check it out here.

Unsurprisingly, the response to our new Desert Mechanic Jessica character has been overwhelmingly positive — roughly 70% excitement and 30% drooling — which we no doubt owe in large part to our beautiful model Jessica Burciaga, who brought this hero to life. To her credit, it was pretty much impossible to make Jess even slightly unattractive, even with mountains of grease and dirt piled on her. She was a trooper ’til the end, so we thought it only fair to give our beloved readers a behind-the-scenes look at the making of this shoot.

The moment we first saw the work of illustrator Nathan Seals (who works under the Nathan’s Comic Art brand), we knew he was a match for drawing our Girls. Not only does Nate render beautiful female characters, but what especially caught our attention was the way his art champions leading ladies of color.
No one but our heroine Vanessa Valentine is exactly sure just how long she’s been marooned in space, but judging by the wide-eyed look on her face, this piece called “Did You Hear Something?” is most certainly near the beginning of her journey. Unfortunately, whatever is lurking in the shadows doesn’t really care that Ms. Valentine is still an outer space newb—she looks like food.

It’s been almost a year since fans went crazy for our our last digital painting of Firefighter Kaitlynn by the gifted Chinese artist known as Lost Melody. Fortunately, he has delivered another beautiful piece of art just in time for the July 4 holiday—this time of our brave Air Force Airman, Erika Arias.
