P:R Approved: Dennis Culver’s Cerebella from EDISON REX!

Note: P:R isn’t just about spotlight great redesigns, but also great original designs. P:R pal Dennis Culver recently joined with Chris Roberson on the new digital-first series Edison Rex, and that rollicking action story has had great new characters, all well designed — but the cream of the crop for me is the character of Cerebella. From small bits like the coloring to the pattern of the circuit-like piping, all the way to the cut of the metal skirt and that awesome exposed cranium — Culver’s hit a sweet spot with design, and I’m glad to be able to read it. – Chris A.

  1. I’m an instant fan of anything featuring floaty brains in jars. The tron-style glowy circuitry suit is not the most original thing ever but it’s done beautifully. I really like this, is what I’m trying to say :)

  2. I love that it’s a lady with an exposed brain and a circuity body. It’s so alien and fascinating, and mildly threatening. Very nice subversion of the trope

  3. Ren Malone: As great as the Tron designs are, they have been duplicated to death now. Still, brain in a jar, so this is awesome.

    Tron was already duplicating a very common (in video games & before that automotive) graphic element. I think the lines are just a tad too busy, and they should suggest some clothing, armor or maybe body lines.

  4. I loved this the instant I saw it. Wonderful colour palette, and a well executed drawing – there is solid weight in the pose, and i love the subtlety of the foot placement & in the gesture of her hand. Nothing wrong with being influenced by Tron in my book, if its done right. This is done very right. The floating brain (literally) tops it all off!

  5. I have no problem with the Tron influences. This looks amazing, and makes me really want to see this come to life in a comic book.
