Step 3 and Step 4
Marvel picked one of the thumbnail designs they really liked and we played around with it a bit. This step was about introducing more superhero-y elements. What footwear, what arm treatments? I loved keeping the gloves, but then what kind? They had already picked a headpiece design they liked so how that went with the new outfit mattered as well.
In the last step they had sent back notes and we had honed in on the first design in Step 3 and then it was all about the smaller details. They wanted an upside down W on her somewhere. They also wanted to see how her costume looked with two of the coat options they really liked (one of which was a capelet). I really pushed to keep her boots black like her pants because I loved the starkness and graphicness against the red of her coat/cape. They finally settled on the capelet which I think is a fun combination of heroics and fashion :P.
Step 1 and 2 here. I’ll try to do some turns of the final design soon as well!
