Mike said: This might just be me, but I cannot think of Alycia without a low-key aura of menace surrounding her. Even on the team and recent breakthroughs, it's a bit like teaming up with early Wolverine--you're glad to have them around when shit hits the fan, but no one's inviting you to hang out after the battle. I can, however, work on that smile. Was the half smile part of what worked? Was it that it had more of a smirk quality to it? Was it that the eye with the smirk helped sell it? Do you think adding different styled lens to the glasses (ala Spider Jerusalem ) would convey that same quality? Completely fair comment on the "low-key aura of menace." And that's appropriate. (If still strangely difficult for me to do because I am such a no-menace person, and an 90% more like Jason than Alycia. But I digress.) Yes, the smirk. There should be humor there, but dark, irksome, perhaps menacing humor. A smirk that says, "Hey, look, I'm shooting you, and it might even make me laugh." As I am so very not a Spider Jerusalem fan (despite my general fondness for things Warren Ellis), I can't all countenance any such a thing. This is totally a pragmatic reason on my end but without the mouth--due to it being covered by the mask and the perma-smile--her eyes and body language are the last bit of emotional conveyance I have and I'm not great at the body language part. Perfectly legit. Riffing off the comics world, yeah, it's always a compromise with what actually presents properly in the medium. I just completely forgot about this one detail, so I'll be sure to correct at some point. I'm just a little torn on which creates a better outline for the character: tightly bundled with no loose hair, or loosely tied back with the back unconstrained (or--as I like the differentiate them-- Rey in Episode Seven or Rey in Episode Eight ). I lean more to the tight bundle as, visuals wise, this conveys more of a stand-offish and practical look (which is what I associate with Alycia), as opposed to the other which is a softer, kinder look. However, that might show that Alycia is trying to open up. Choices. Given those two pix, I'd definitely go for Ep 7. I'm find with her coming across as stand-offish/practical.In the normal scheme of things, that opening up would happen over time. So I'll hit you up again around Issue 35 for a complete redesign. :-) I know you're joking, but that font ( Luna ) was actually part of my Creative Market membership this week and I just really wanted to try it out on something after downloading it on Monday. Not the best use (at least it is sans serif and doesn't clash with the lineart), but it works. I am joking in that Alycia way. :-) I'm a huge (if amateurish) font wonk, so it's probably best if I back off and not dive down that rabbit hole with my rocket boots on. Carry on.
