    So she's Paris Hilton-meets Patty Hearst. I get it.

    Dammit, and here I was sketching, hoping to monopolize the Patty Hearst/SLA angle.

    There has to be a good reason, I'm thinking a female Saint.

    I heard "Woman", "University Educated", "Has Gun" and instantly thought "Militant Feminist". I think it stems from this English Class I once took run entirely by Militant Feminists... it was a little uncomfortable sporting a penis.

    Domino Mask

    (I kind of wish I was a better artist).

    Looking up "domino" on Wikipedia led me to its origins as "domini"; black and white masquerade-type masks from old-timey Venetian Carnivals, which I thought was more interesting and mysterious than a traditional domino mask. I left everything else the same because I didn't figure Domino Lady to be needing to jump around rooftops, etc.

    Excuse my elaboration, but I figure that she robs from the rich and then only APPEARS to give to the poor... She's really planning a massively elaborate revenge plot against the conspirators who murdered her father, and her "donations" are all one more domino in her chain reaction of retribution. Also, I feel like the full face mask allows for Domino Lady to be anybody underneath... like not necessarily whassername, the district attourney's daughter. (Sorry for adding that story bit, but I have been thinking about it all day.)

    Here is my "pencils":

    Because Catwoman goggles never go out of style.

    Hey, person with numbers for a name: I like your dress design, with the domino spots on it, and I like that someone's hand has come along for the ride on DL's newly acquired briefcase...

    I like Hana's...

    @brycemidas: 21st century Domino Lady surely is fergalicious and spends the money she gets from the crooks in temporary tattoos and tanning salloon sessions.

    @E0157H7: Very cool. Love the dress and mask design.

    Thanks for the compliments! I have another one that I just finished, which I may scan and post as well (I didn't want to crowd it up). She's wearing a leather jacket and Wayfarer-style sunglasses with domino dots on them, a decidedly more homemade look than the crazy dress and mask.

    Comic book and movie characters: Cuffing something sought-after to your hand means that it will get cut off, because ripping the handle off the case is boring.

    every time Sobreiro posts his attempt i imagine a comic being done with it, sort of an Apparat 2 thing.
    are all of those characters in public domain?

    A little Crazy-88s-meets-Lupin-the-3rd, with Mickey Mouse gloves and a big ol' sack marked "Crime Dollars".

    I'd like to see her fight Irma Vep.

    I'm gonna do something with the Berkley punk rock anarcho socialist angle here soon as I have time to breathe.

    Attention: This is just a PLACEHOLDER. This is just representation, not RE-interpretation. This is my warm-up for REAL thinking to come later this week.
    I have a few interesting (?) ideas, but this one was bouncing around in my head this morning, and I wanted to try out this illustrational style for a while.
    So, I thought I'd post this to let people look at something while I grind out (hopefully) a more interesting idea...

    @Paul Sizer:
    That's the placeholder? Wow.
