In efforts to showcase the design sensibilities of young aspiring superheroes, artist Alexandria Law created Little Girls Are Better At Designing Superheroes Than You, an art project wherein superheroes are illustrated and redesigned based on superheroic costumes worn by young girls. Law’s project features submitted photos of little girls donning costumes based off of both licensed superheroes and original characters alongside illustrated interpretations of the look “in action,” providing a fresh look on heroic aesthetics. From an incredibly wearable Wonder Woman dress with killer boots to chic, simplified adjustments to Power Girl and Huntress, these little heroines manage to embody the spirit of their idols while adding inventive style and flair; a skill that many comic professionals still struggle to master.
Doodled this out last night. I wanted to make her look a little more futuristic and make it a little more formal (in the story it was a present for Supergirl to wear at a party, I think). Also, I’ve never been a fan of people in the Superfamily wearing masks; a hood feels friendlier to me. Almost changed the yellow to silver but I decided against it. Hope you guys like it!
The cloak coordinated with the red legwear and red gloves creates a better blue:red ratio, and gives the look a more balanced feel. Also, I’m a big fan of capes redesigned as mod hooded mini-cloaks, so yeah.
