This nice lady is using hand-me-down gear. I wanted it to be as analog as possible; a micro TV with a cracked glass screen felt the most evocative of that.
I considered her using it to transform, but I really wanted to showcase the device, so I went with the pose here. I am not sure what pushing that button does, but I’m sure its necessary. I think this suit is basically coveralls with sturdy boots and gloves to keep her safe and tidy in a variety of environments. Her fishbowl helmet feels evocative of an astronaut’s dome and the large exposed antenna is another indicator that this system is old. I wasn’t really sure what to put in her holster, so I decided to just have it be concealed for now. She could have something on her back. Stick around and find out. I am planning to do more with her in the coming days.
Keep coming back as I tackle the rest of the prompts throughout September. I am determined to make it every day this year!
Looking over all these prompts has my wheels spinning and I really want to make a little toku-inspired project for kids. I am thinking something about health. Maybe three little adventures in a single book with a team composed of an homage to Sentai, Rider and Ultra. I don’t really draw cute, so I would love to chat with a more versatile illustrator who would be interested in working together.
