SO! I'm trying to up my catalog of superpowered Villainess (so far, my only POWERED villainess is poison ivy) with that in mind, i attempted to make Giganta, almost THREE YEARS AGO. why did i never show her? cus i didn't like what i came up with. But after some research, and some thought, i'd figured i would try AGAIN. and here are the results! three different costume tries at Giganta. I went towards the african cultural motifs because, frankly, i couldn't think of anything else.
The DC encyclopedia was pretty scarse about her origins, and the DC Wiki was a bit..confusing, so in an attempt to better blend her into my Earth 29 universe, i tried to come with a new origin. Here's what I was thinking: South African Scientist adopted into an inner African tribe, has a child named Doris, who accidently injests an herb similar to Elastic Man's Gingkold, and viola, gets banished from village, and poof instant angry giant lady. this is a BAREBONES origin attempt, as I need to get more of her motivations down, but i hope it explains some of my methodology. This is also why i attempted to make her a bit mixed race, but honestly, i've said this before, but i SUCK at accurately capturing Ethinicities. ANYWAY! onto the costume tries!
I was going for a sexy cross between her skirt look, and what she wore in the JLU cartoon. this was the look i made up almost three years ago, and whilst i think its PASSABLE, i do feel its a bit boring.
This was my second shot. i was trying to ape her catsuit look, particularly the one i saw in Blue Beetle 19. its not EXACTLY her costume in that issue, but i wasn't so much trying for accuracy as i was trying to blend it into my african motif. i THINK this is my best bet at a good costume, as its the one my friends like the most.
This was my shot at a traditional Skirted look. i think its okay, but like the first try, i think its a bit BORING.
My major issue with all of these however, is that i feel their lacking something. WHAT, I don't know.
ANYWAY! gimmie your thoughts please!
SO! a couple of notes before you critique!
1) since these are wips and i am posting them STRICTLY for the purpose of critique, i WILL hide any comment that is just 'nice job!' or 'that loooks great!'. no arguments, cus i'm posting these to GET critique, as opposed to my normal art.
2) if you think you can't comment cus you don't know 3D, just treat them as if i drew them, and ignore the fact that their 3D. if something can't be done cus its 3D, well, thats MY problem, not yours.
3) feel free to be as vicious as you need to be! i'd rather have brutal honesty then kind lies!
oh yeah, PLEASE don't submit this to groups! its a WIP!
AND! All characters depicted are (C) to DC!
