... except that this tempts me to change my desktop. Holy hell! I love this so much! Broken machinery and epic art, different body types and musculatures, different *attitudes* --
*swoons* I have yet to look at a single *sketch* by you which *doesn't* convince me that, yes, you have damned well sat down and *thought* about who the characters are, and what moves them, and what they think about when they're posing like Captain Morgan, and -- God, you're so awesome! Why are you so awesome!
Would you tell me a little about your Supergirl? Who is she? What is she like? She seems a little shy here, or perhaps not-quite-there emotionally. Very curious!
Thanks again, lady! The different body types/physicalities were what I was most interested in exploring with this piece, so I'm pleased as a pickle that that was what jumped out at you first.
(Aside: "...posing like Captain Morgan"? Officially my new favorite phrase in the history of everything!)
Supergirl's always interested me, but I don't know that I've ever agreed with her canon characterization, which for the most part seems to paint her with the same "Earth girls are easy, so let me be one of those!" brush that has been similarly smeared all over Miss Martian and the modern day take on Kory.
I think that if Kara Zor-El's going to be Kal's time lost older cousin, then she'd almost naturally feel inclined to act a bit more reserved or stand-offish in her newfound circumstances than your average, resilient kid. It's gotta be sobering to lose the entire civilization you grew up with, then realize that one of its few surviving members has moved on completely without you, leaving you with even less of an identity than you could have ever imagined. And if it were me, I'd turn even more inward and hold on to what I remembered, rather than immediately embracing a whole new life with total abandon. Kara's the scion of a very noble house, and the only living being who really knows or remembers what that means.
So, yes. More of a foreign exchange student who's actually quite reticent to integrate and embrace this new cultural immersion, on second thought, and rather less a dated version of schoolgirl Britney Spears. Older and younger than her years, but determined to pick up on the nobility and good that her cousin stands for in this strange new world, no matter how foreign her new Super role may seem. She's the only ambassador for all she held dear, now. And that's incredibly daunting, and just as it should be.
