The Valkyries

gailsimone:

…is a group of ridiculously awesome women who work at comics stores all over the place. I somehow managed to not know they were a group until Emerald City Comicon, and now I am so happy I know!

You should follow them, but only if you like amazing women making comics better on the frontlines!

The phantasmagorical and surreal animal sculptures by Canadian artist Ellen Jewett. Between dream and nightmare, some strange creations born of a symbiosis between organic and mechanical elements, a meeting between fantasy, gothic and steampunk. Some very detailed sculptures in clay on a metal frame.

Welcome to the first batch of my Superhero Redesigns! Which, because I ended up doing nothing but DC characters, shall henceforth be known as “Earth K Designs.” Our first three were suggestions from my followers, and here are the thoughts behind my designs:

Zatanna - Zatanna has a pretty iconic look so it was hard to come up with something I haven’t seen before. I took my inspiration from some images I found of Harry Houdini performing card tricks with the sleeves on his jacket rolled up to show that there was “nothing up his sleeves” so I made her tailcoat sleeveless, and then put her trademark fishnets on her arms, because I wanted to cover up her legs without loosing the ‘nets. I also wanted to give her a combat weapon for situations when magic wouldn’t work, and my solution was a magic wand extended to the size of a bo staff. (Zatanna was requested by sumrallmind)

Batwoman (Kate Kane) - My biggest problem with Batwoman’s current design is that she basically looks just like Batman with breasts, with her outfit pulling from Batgirl and Batman Beyond’s design. She operates pretty independently from the rest of the Bat-family and I wanted her outfit to reflect that. So i opted to pull from her military background, giving her body armor and long pouches on her belt. I gave her a full helmet as the loose hair (even if it was a decoy wig) never made sense to me. And the bit I’m most proud of is the digital night camo pattern on the outside of her cape. The whole outfit says “bat vigilante by way of the military” which conveys her character in a strong visual language. (Batwoman was requested by knowonesdesigns)

Jessie Quick - For Jessie I wanted to again wanted to cover up her bare legs, but I still wanted to convey what you think of when you think of a runner, so the compromise was the bare arms. I also gave her the physicality of a runner, with a more slender torso and heavier thighs. The helmet and logo pull from various designs of the Earth 3 character Johnny Quick, and the boots are my holding onto the day-glo heavy tread boots typically associated with The Flash himself. (Jessie Quick was requested by elfgrove)

Well, that’s the first batch. I’ve got 13 more redesigns in the pipeline, and will hopefully post another 3 in a few days.

Love these!
