REMAKE: Mysta of the Moon by PaulSizer REMAKE: Mysta of the Moon by PaulSizer
This week's REMAKE/REMODEL challenge from the WHITECHAPEL forums. Here's the brief statement for the original character:

"In the near future, Mars, god of War, has succeeded in destroying all of Earth's universities in an attempt to inflict a new dark age on humanity. However, Dr. Kort has preserved the world's knowledge and culture. To ensure that it would outlast him, he took two children, Mysta and Nors, to his moon laboratory and educated them using a hypno-transmitter. Unfortunately, Mars possessed Nors, killing Dr. Kort and trying to kill Mysta as well. She saw through the ruse, however, and killed Nors in order to free him from Mars' control and banish the villain from the corporal plane.

With Mars defeated, Mysta and her mentally controlled robot, Bron, fought new foes from their moon citadel.

She also advised the Safety Council, an organization formed to try to reverse Mars-inflicted damage and restore knowledge to Earth. She used a scanno lens to see trouble anywhere."

Because I was feeling out of sorts when I did this, my take on the character went a little darker than normal.
I figured that the scenario went like this: Earth universities destroyed by ancient mad War God, scientist takes two children to moon, boy becomes possessed by War God, kills scientist, girl forced to kill boy, now all alone on Moon base except for robot...

But hey, emo characters are all the rage, right, so she should fit right in!

Thanks, it's from my "sad girl" period...

WOW. That's a great drawing--the emotion and tone just bleeds off the page--and don't worry about making her too "emo," I think if you had to kill your possessed brother and left alone with only a robot as a companion, you'd be pretty fucking depressed too.
Poor girl... No control over her own destiny until she's forced to kill her own friend...

Hmmm, this IS starting to sound like a Warren Ellis script...

Love the layout, and the gore is a nice touch (the handprints are my favourite :D).

Her head looks a little small, though - but maybe that's due to her shoulder-armour making her shoulders look so wide.

Yeah, I noticed that as well; I checked it over, and it IS the extended shoulder pads that make it look smaller. I gave her those to make her slouch more pronounced.
Thanks for the crits, appreciated!

Nicely done!

You can really feel the sadness and the sorrow from looking at it,

but based on the bloodsplats and the hand-prints,Must have been BRUTAL kills
