    @curb: Apart from the degrees of detail, a lot of us seem to be riffing on similar ideas and inspirations. But overall, I really like what people are doing with the persona.

    @Brad McLoughlin - I agree entirely. That's what I get for rushing it.
    A couple quick tweaks and adjustment layers to hopefully add more a bit more para and a little less military (and to sate my OCD):

    Still not properly finished by any means...

    Yeah, I pointed out Ryan's contribution to one of my co-workers and his response was "wow".

    Each of these threads so far has had some truly arresting contributions.

    Grasias Amigo.

    I am a massive fan of the Aeon Flux cartoons and I often try to get that pale, pastel hue effect going on. You have no idea how much that measn to me.

    Domino Lady drawing by Tony Goins

    I agree with the guy before who said this is a concept that doesn't need much fixing. I think my wife has this same sweater.

    Well, SeanGrimm beat me to the punch on concept (cool design, btw), but here's my updated Domino Lady:

    After the murder of her DA father, Ellen Patrick-Nakamura saw the impotency of the legal system in Japan and became obsessed with taking down salarymen who facilitated "compensated dating" and the burgeoning "burasera (bloomer sellers)" market. Posing as an dance club/enjo girl and communicating via schoolgirl prostitution cel phone codes, Ellen lures and confronts pedophiles to her and deals them the greatest blows: financial disgrace and public humiliation. After covering her expenses, she donates the balance of the money she takes to various child endangerment protection services under the alias "Domino Lady".

    In case anyone is interested, here's some initial sketches, along with the drawing process timeline for this drawing:

    I was thinking about using the middle pose in this set, but I was afraid the guy might look like he was enjoying it too much... Oh you BDSM businessmen!

    That's so great, Paul. I get a kick how my Remake is kinda similar to yours (black dress, domino tattoos, flying money). Awesome color. I'd buy this comic.

    Thanks Ryan!
    Not to turn this into a mutual appreciation society moment, but yours is stellar as well. I always find it funny to see what common good ideas pop up in various people's versions. I love the nice greytone work in yours; the facial expression is also really evocative as well.

    @Paul Sizer:

    She only robs in Euros.

    That's lovely man. The kitty purse just tops it.

    My first go wasn't fashionable enough to be loli for my gf, which is true, so I gave my concept another shot. I'm pretty crap at painting or color so again it is just pencil. I should work on that.

    that last image really caught my attention, it's definitely something I'd pick up and look over at my local shop. Nice!

    @virtuasamurai tits!!

    @frequentcontributor lol I feel tempted to tweak my sketch, but wearing a black and white dress, If I draw six nipples on her breasts she will start to look like the bovine avenger.

    Also, for the record, here's a quick doodle I did on Monday and I couldn't scan before.

    Note to self: don't wait so late in the week to start these things.

    There have been a lot of really great takes on this character so far, and most of my initial ideas have already been done in ways better than I could hope to achieve. Anyway, I was super short on time, so my entry is little more than a photoshop mock-up:
