    Thanks, hopefully the main idea I have rattling around in my head is worth seeing. This was more of a period piece/deco work out. It's not that much removed from her actual look. I just had an hour (waiting on a decision-impaired client) and did this to get the idea out of my head, so I could move on to something more conceptually interesting later.
    (if I'm really truthful, I wanted to get this piece up in case my other idea craps out... Then I can say "This is what I meant to do all along!" )

    you did that in an hour?

    .... I hate you.


    but I love the illustration.

    Here's mine. I was thinking of the backless gown and decided that today's debutante would probably go for more of a tank top/shrug look, if she were doing the cat-burglar thing. (EDIT: I added a texture and fixed the crop. I did the original earlier this morning and my caffeine hadn't kicked in yet).

    A Sketch of Lady Domino by Matt Mayer

    Quick something between tasks at work. I almost feel bad putting it up next to the beautiful things such talented people take real time on to make so nice. But I think this is a great exercise, so I want to participate!

    Art Grafunkel: Hilarious! "Elephant Doodles Si(x? I think not...)tine Chapel Then Dies of... Something." A random drawing of what could be ANY lady and a few lines of text and you've really re-invented the whole fucking thing in one go. Nice work.

    I just thought I'd cross Paris Hilton with Christina von Wackerbarth, so I ended up with a corporate media-mongul, swallowing and/or destroying other companies and corporations out of profit (of course), and using that profit to help the socially deprived... and using the status she gains from that to enforce her own (political) agenda... blah blah blah... :)

    (Sorry about the spelling errors)

    domino lady

    Sort of an E.L.F. Berkeley socialite, with ubiquitous pink track-suit...
    • CommentTimeDec 9th 2008 edited
    The young socialite died the night her father was murdered. Only the Domino Lady remains, baring her mask of self inflicted scars as penance for her perceived faliure to protect daddy. The combat trousers and boots are practical additions to the torn party dress that she'll never take off again. I figure she doesn't care much about who gets the money she rips off from criminals - it's all about how much pain she can inflict before she too is taken out.

    Two threads in a row, consistently amazing. I love that classy little hippie!

    Can I make a plea for the artists to possibly include details of how they created their pics. For example I would love to know how Paul achieved that image -especially in an hour...
    • CommentTimeDec 9th 2008
    Mine was sketched in pencil, inked, and then scanned and colored in Photoshop.

    Love the track suit, Paul!

    @orwellseyes Thanks!

    Mine was penciled and inked in Manga Studio (same as the last one) and colored in Photoshop. Start to finish, probably an hour, to an hour and a half (time isn't so much of a factor when you draw in a minimalist cartoony style!).

    Is BryantPaul a professional artist, because that work (and the Cap J one) is AMAZING!!! I feel like I should be watching a cartoon that looks like that.

    Also, I like the mask of scars. I almost went a similar way where she would carve a new domino mask out of the face (around the person's eyes) of each of her new victims...

    As for my drawing process, I do it all on a Wacom tablet in the program Corel Paint Shop Pro X. Doing pencils that way is quite a bit more liberating, but inking sometimes feels sloppy and hard to control. I feel it's like the old (Rick Veitch's) Rare Bit Fiends line (about Dave Sim), "He's inking like Bissette..." That might be a bit of pretty obscure reference, but I feel like the Wacom makes me ink more like Steve Bissette or Frank Miller, which is interesting, but it is not necessarily as tight as my previous pen/paper inking style.

    Related to this whole Remake/Remodel process, I've been dreaming up other characters to fix on my own. I was thinking up what to do with detective Sam Spade.

    Also, I, too, am curious about whether or not these characters are public domain (and can therefore be used in any new comic I would want to make...), except for the fact that if you don't own the character, can you make any cash on the movie rights? Doubtful. I don't want to seem cynical, but I'd rather OWN a character called Captain Kustice and make a buck than not own a character called Captain Justice and be left sitting with my artistic pride and no movie deal...

    @ Art Grafunkel - great image and a great underlying concept.
