Note: Another new artist to P:R today, as Marco Antonio Laranjeira takes on DC’s Supergirl and gives her a drastic but practical makeover. Pulling from some of the same ways of thinking as Jamie McKelvie’s Captain Marvel, Laranjeira ups Supergirl from someone looking like she’s trying out being a superhero to someone looking to get her hands dirty. – Chris A.
Here’s what Marco said about his design:
This Supergirl redesign was based in the Man Of Steel movie and the “New 52” Superman, with an almost alien army styling. I quit the cape, because capes are not practical, and she is a teenager, not a krypton goddess. The long hair had to go too. i believe long hair in a battle is just something annoying and disturbing. I’m also a great fan of the ginger Supergirl, even though she was not the real-real Supergirl.
