REMAKE: Fantomah by PaulSizer REMAKE: Fantomah by PaulSizer
This fortnight's REMAKE/REMODEL challenge from Whitechapel: FANTOMAH. Here's the brief:

"FANTOMAH

About time we had a she-character, I think. And let’s go back to comics for our source. Specifically, a typically twisted Fletcher Hanks creation from the pages of Jungle Comics. This infoblot from WIKIA:

Fantomah is a mysterious godlike being who protects the jungles of Africa. She has vast magical power, to the point of being practically omnipotent, and can transform herself into a frightening blue phantom/skeleton creature as well as a floating skull with blonde hair… Fantomah often sentences her enemies to bizarre and brutal punishments. For instance, in Jungle Comics #7 she transforms a band of greedy diamond miners who oppressed the natives into one man, then sends that man to an "unfound world" to be enslaved by hideous green fanged monsters, then sent into a pit of cobras, and then absorbed into a wall by a giant hand.

In a way we’ve already met Fantomah, on the grounds that our old friend PROFESSOR ZOMAX was one of her enemies. You’ll recall he was the unfortunate eco-hater who was screwed-over by NATURE ITSELF and quite probably sodomised by gorillas. So let’s not scrimp on the Weird And Horrible, yes?

Fantomah has been variously reinvented down the years as a bimboesque Tarzanette, an Egyptological sorceress and so on… but let’s stick to the “DEFENDER OF THE FOREST” motif. We’ve drifted away from Spandex in recent challenges – absolutely nothing wrong with that – but let’s go back to core, eh?

Sadistic she-warrior with godlike super-powers, blonde hair, a penchant for turning into a blue skull, and an active interest in protecting the Jungle from unlikely scallywags.

Go."

Sadistic she-warrior with godlike super-powers, blonde hair, a penchant for turning into a blue skull, and an active interest in protecting the Jungle from unlikely scallywags?
How about sadistic ex-MI6 she-warrior with hi-tech stealth/hologram gear that projects a skull, interested in protecting the urban "jungle" of Kuala Lumpur against scallywags?

Uhm... I'm not sure I like the way the rope seems to be pointing twards her vagina, the movement suggesting imminent penetration. Also, the left leg is kinda too thick compared to the right leg.
Otherwise i find the picture quite gorgeous as always.

Yeah, that rope needs to learn some manners. And yeah, the foreshortening on the leg is a bit wonky; one of those cases where it needs to look good not 100% correct. Thanks for the crits!

Random thought: In a serial version of a comic like this, actually fighting said godlike mythical she-warrior would make for a cool issue.
