    Apparently we've never done this one. Go figure.

    Usual REMAKE/REMODEL rules apply:

    No pen-portraits. This is ART ONLY. Posting just a bunch of text, or a scribble and a vast number of words, will get the thread closed and your account banned.

    NO MORE PHOTO-MANIPULATION "art". I'll just delete them. People have been drenching recent threads with several pieces at a time that they've knocked out in photoshop in 2 minutes with no thought at all. I consider this to be taking the piss now.

    HOWEVER: I will allow the interpolation of ORIGINAL PHOTOGRAPHS into the work.

    No more than ONE submission by any one person in any one REMAKE/REMODEL.

    Now then. Pay attention:


    You have to design a character called SUPERGIRL. But, in true Remake/Remodel fashion, you've been given only limited information by your insane/stoned bosses. The following is literally all you know:

    Alien girl from a sealed city that survived the destruction of its home planet is sent to Earth in a rocket, where the environment gives her special abilities. She's sent to Earth in a rocket because everyone in the space city is dying of radioactivity. She lands on earth, fakes her way into an orphanage, gets into college, and then starts operating on the side as "Supergirl."

    You're well aware that the following has been read off Wikipedia to you by a drunk who's getting maybe one paragraph in three and skipping the long words.


    And that's all you've got. Extrapolate and design from that.


    You have one week.

    wow this one sounds really dirty, or is it just me?

    remake/remodel: supergirl (illo) #whitechapel

    The only intelligible words I could make out were girl, environment, space, radiation.
    By then the editor had fallen into a stupor and I made off with the rest of the beer. :)

    @Yskaya Lovely! I imagine some pretty slapstick episodes trying to sneak into college.. :D ("It's a skin condition!")

    I thought anyone with that weird of a childhood, and that many special innate abilities-- who spent so much of their developing years trying to fit in and pretend to be normal; and then went around with a side-gig as something called "supergirl", would end up being either a pop-star or a serial killer. Went with the pop star thing.

    Definitely NOT my best work.

    Not my best but I thought I'd share.

    @Yskasa, nice colouring, cool one!
    @mercurialblonde, ahhh lovely, really nice comic cover. I would want, were I to stumble upon such a wonder.
    @ragingpacifist, eyecatching shoulder piece, like the pinks and greys.

    I'm gonna get working on this one asap. Had an awful couple of weeks involving car crashes, temporary relocation and money troubles. Looking forward to diving back in here again now.

    @ Yskaya; I love the engery the entire redesign has. I love the fact she actually looks alien. That she isn't something from this planet at all. I adore the bird-esque helmet.

    @ mercurialblonde; The piece is exact right type of loud. There's some Jamie Hewlett in there and there's some Yvonne Blake.

    @ ragingpacifist; That armor excites me. It looks organic. Love the colors.

    Holy crap @Mercurialblonde. That is insanely great.

    Last survivor of a planet of pulp superscientists:

    Supergirl By Oxbrow

    (edit: Did I go too X-Men with the yellow and blue? Possibly. Just Superhero Girl enough with the mask, though.)

    MAybe not at Whitechapel. But from what I remember, Supergirl was among the very first R/Rs you introduced at TheEngine.

    My entry to same.

    I should take a stab at this.

    Sadly, this is the best quality image I could take of what I made:

    Good show, early birds. Can't wait to see what else comes down the pike.
