Default Black Widow

I'm still not sure if this was the inspiration, but it is awfully close:

I wish I knew where the comic image was originally from. When I first encountered the image it was in the Marvel Universe Official Handbook #8 from 1986

That Groot one almost seems the other way: the drawing was based on the bust. I think I've seen some other artwork that used the statue as the model.
