Help! I'm in danger of becoming a comic book guy. Am I being sentenced to an alliterative daunting, dorky, demise?

Way back when, I posted a couple sketches that pertained to a certain comic book that I'm attempting to draw for my home town "besty"(homosexual jargon for best friend). Well, I went on a month and a half long hiatus from the comic work, and the last couple days I've been trying to get back into it. It's been really hard as I've been trying to get back into the swing of the caricature season as well. Well, excuses aside, I've been struggling with drawing a compelling character, or a compelling face for that matter, off the top of my head. I felt like I've made a bit of a breakthrough the last couple days, in my character sketches: something a little more alive about them. They still need a lot of work, dont get me wrong, but I feel like I'm heading in the right direction.

There's a lot of inconsistencies in the sketches above. I didn't realize it until I was cleaning up the scanned image in photoshop. One more thing to work on...

There's something VERY sexy about a girl who has short hair, and can actually pull it off. I really want to strive for that in this last character. Yes, she is the devil. On a tangent, if there is an actual devil, it has to be a woman.
