So, Kori (Starfire) has been on my mind for the last few days. I’m sure most of you are familiar with the controversy regarding the changes DC Comics has made with the “New 52”. I wasn’t really paying all that much attention until the story about Starfire broke, it upset me quite a bit as this is a hero that I’ve always had a soft spot for and identified with.
But here’s the thing, it made me think about some of the artwork I’ve produced over the last 5 years and well, let’s just say I’m not happy with some works.
There are going to be some changes here at the ol’ online Tiki hut. the first step is going to be taking down images that I feel I have moved beyond or that I feel are no longer appropriate, these pictures will always be a part of me for sure but at the same time I want to make sure when you go thumbing through my gallery and you see fan art it’s going to be positive!
Again to be absolutely clear, there’s always room for sexy, but sexy with dignity :)
Seeing as how I’ve done both the top ten for best and worst superhero costume redesigns, I feel obligated to put my money where my artistic mouth is and take a stab at fixing or updating some of these costumes. I’ve picked five here…
I was on board until Wonder Woman and Supes’ but interesting takes on all the characters, leaps and bounds above the goofballs at DC.
Perhaps DC should re-read a little bit about Starfire’s design history.
"The Starfire character was something that Marv did want to do, he wanted to have a strong female alien character. […] I worked first from a visual point of view, devising the feline look to Koriand’r, off the basically Red Sonja look at first. Joe Orlando was the one who came in after seeing the original drawing and saying, "Make her hair a little longer," and little did he know what he wrought.
TMI Tuesday: Everything I know about Maryland comes from Fallout 3
Friend of mine is going for training in Columbia MD next month, when I looked it up on Google Maps I realized that it would be roughly where the Republic of Dave was (give or take)… WHAT HAS SCIENCE DONE???
Side note: I’d really like to visit Washington D.C. one day and see all the cool stuffs for reals
