Somethin' a bit more comic booky
Here's Casey Jones from the Ninja Turtles as a girl. One of those, "turn a guy character into a girl" themes. I wanted to make her this raver-type punk chick and I knew I wanted plenty of black. At some point I wasn't too happy with the colors - it lost the feel I was trying for - this punk feel I guess. I ended up going with more monotone colors and jacking up the saturation and contrast. I blew out the original pencils and I got something I remember being really happy with. In the end it made me feel like this was sorta like a bad xeroxed flyer. Like the kind you'd see all over store fronts and alleyways advertising some band at some bar. Or maybe for some sorta rave thing. Only thing I don't like is that the linework gets lost. I lost a lot of the details but I came closer to the image I had in mind.
