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!
“Lady Midday” or the “Noon Witch" is a noon demon from Slavic mythology. She’s a manifestation of a heatstroke. :) I’m working on my second mini comic; “Femme Fatale Vol. 2!” which is a collection of myths feat. deadly ladies. ♡
People still liked my year old Spider Gwen prints even after I’d gotten super tired of them, so I was inspired to update the colors, and now I have an accidental Vapor Wave Spider Gwen that I love. Look for prints at Kumori Con in Portland at the end of this month!
