REMAKE: SUPER ANN Inks by PaulSizer REMAKE: SUPER ANN Inks by PaulSizer
Part one of this week's REMAKE/REMODEL thread for the WhiteChapel forums. This is a challenge, because of there not being more info other than this:
"When Ann Star was a child, she was caught outside in a fierce snow storm. She managed to survive by taking refuge in a cave until the storm was over. In the cave, she discovered and old hermit from another planet who could not stand the light of day. He taught her secrets that gave her super strength and increased resistance to damage. Now known as Super Ann, she is depicted as always running on tiptoes, ballerina style, and as having many Superman-like powers. These powers include super speed, super strength, and the ability to leap tall buildings."

I wanted to work with the angle of a young girl falling into a cave and being cared for by an alien hermit, and because it's Halloween week, I went for the creepy angle.

I figured her "tip-toe" walking style to be because she had broken her legs falling into the cave, and that the insectoid alien (who hides in the cave like an ant) tried his best to patch her legs up, which resulted in them being deformed so that she walks on her tip toes.

I also figured that she would be trapped in this cave for years, being trained and fed on an alien diet that yielded her "super strength and skills", as well as her ability to function in near pitch black conditions, hence the blindfold.

I figured her "costume" is the remnants of the winter coat and clothes that she was wearing when she fell into the cave, so it's made out of her coat, gloves, scarf, etc.

So, after years of being fed alien food that gave her increased strength and stamina, she bides her time and when she's ready, she rips her captor's head off, to escape her underground prison. Because that's how my brain is working today...

As I said, this is just the inks; part two will be if I get my lame ass around to coloring this and making it more complete.

That's pretty gross, but fantastic lines and an interesting pose, both showing off her body and costume and the action scene, with this upward momentum throughout. I like how her hair's messy and long (and so much darker than the rest of the pic), because naturally in a cave she couldn't cut or style it.

I reffed the pose from an actual ballerina shot, to get the correct toe positions and the long body form. And yeah, I tried to think "Well, she's stuck in a frickin' cave, what WOULD you do for clothes, hair, etc.
Thanks for the words!
