How do you approach designing outfits for female characters (particularly superheroes), considering the tendency/norm of hypersexualization of women in comics?
I think the problem with many suit designs for women is that they do not fit their personality. If a character is lascivious, then their clothing will reflect that. But if a character is shy, more than likely, their posture, style choice, and attire will reflect that sensitivity. I try to get into the mind of the character as much as possible. Consider character design like being a personal shopper for your imaginary friend!
