Note: Our friends at Superhero of the Month are doling out the entries from their recent Starfire contest, and amongst the entries was one that stood out to both Dean and I. The winner hasn’t been declared yet, but This design by Blair J. Campbell gets high marks from us for being inventive, cool, and just plan fun-looking to draw. Great looking work! – Chris A.
Here’s what Campbell said about the design:
Rather than go the ultra-sleazy route that seems to be popular these days, I decided to go retro-chic. I designed the costume to be an homage to the ’50s style “space girl” look — still being sexy, without giving it all away for free. As for her skin, I tried to give her an almost translucent, glowing quality. Her power is actually radiating from within her body, much like an actual star. I imagined that the hair would be so much of an actual flame, but something along the lines of plasma and solar flares. It’s constantly shifting and morphing.
