Four Redesigns I did for She Has No Head’s new article by Kelly Thompson
The theme were characters that need a redesign.
Okay, since seemingly people were complaining because they failed to look into the context for these designs, im providing my notes.
With Harley I wanted to take the approach of the super wacky and cute version of her that Bruce Timm created, but put her in the context of the more hardcore dangerous team. Given who she runs around with, and where she fits, it sort of makes sense that she would combat-ready up a bit, but I didn’t want to lose the charm of her character
When I think of Raven, “dark elegance” is what always comes to mind. With all her costumes, the “dark” is always apparent, but I felt there’s been a lack of “elegance” of late, and that’s what I sought to bring back. I also tried to incorporate as many design elements I could from an actual Raven. The tail inspired the shape of the cape, the wings inspired her shoulders, and I added actual feathers onto her, etc. I’ve never thought of her as a mobile character, so I chose to go a more “fashion route.”
This was a tricky one. I wanted to balance equal parts Alien-Princess and Warrior. To an extent, I approached her how I would Wonder Woman – I didn’t want to hide the royal side, but I needed the costume to serve her very physical activities. Because of her power set, and her alien nature, I didn’t adhere to human practicality and the costume restrictions that might entail (bare feet), but I didn’t want her to look outlandish either.
In keeping with the idea that she is currently lacking confidence from her diminished/unpredictable powers and just the overall turmoil she caused, I wanted to keep the black costume and general personality change she has now. I chose to make the full body covered, because as a character who prides herself on her confidence, and the confidence brought forth from her body, I’d imagine with this weakened state of mental resolve she wouldn’t be too keen on showing it off. But that doesn’t mean Emma won’t still be fashionable.
architecturedlove asked: Hi, first of all, I'd like to say that I love your work. Secondly, I haven't picked up any comics recently (not out of a lack of interest, but of time) but I just want to say that if you had anything to do with the redesign of Psylocke's costume, thank you, thank you, thank you! I've always been a big fan of hers, but the new costume is so much less ridiculous than the one from the 90s that I grew up on. Have a nice day!
haha well this just made my night! thank you very much!!!
This has been sitting in my WIP file for waaaaay too long.
and finishing out his set, damn this is awesome. love whats going on with the hair and eye make-up. and the swords. (i might use those for her haha)
roarrovier asked: You've been posting a lot of Natalie Dormer pics lately (not that i'm complaining) and when I saw the Irene Adler/Moriarty picture I had an idea, wouldn't it be awesome if she played Carol Danvers a.k.a Captain Marvel in the MCU. Thoughts?
Dormer i feel isn’t as much as a rough and tumble warrior woman i feel that danvers needs to be. I would love to see Dormer as like Contessa or someone, who is like a huge manipulator/schemer/tantalizer/seducer/etc. just someone more cunning than brawny.
Fuck, id kill to see her as contessa. or madam hydra.
Somebody’s getting an upgrade. Amazing redesign by the incredible Kris Anka #ThePrideAdventures #2 #comics #art #outrage (at Ton Pentre Railway Station (TPN))
one of the most fun “robots” ive ever designed

ashley-de-riveter asked: !!!!!! REIGN OF TERROR <3 <3 <3 sad it didn't make the cut though. I definitely may or may not have saved that one w/ sleigh bells on it because it's awesome (and with ink at the bottom, look's like he's just getting started on the color so it works perfect)
yeah, legal reasons and all that. but id have loved to keep it in there. but you and i will always know what she is really listening to.
