I don't know. How many times you can honk per minute? ;) :P

I've made some improvements to clarity for chapter two (thank's Hiker!) but mostly this is to gather these back up since it's been a few years

I now have a bit of first-hand experience that 60 hour work weeks are hard on the creative process. But I still get a moment to tinker now and then...

This is NOT sequential, but I wanted to get it down on paper while the muse was whispering. THis will eventually slot into Kissed by Fire.

Huh? I thought they couldn't bring anything back with them from the Long Walks, to the point of needing to take a hit of compressed oxygen from home right before retrieval since even oxygen molecules that didn't originate on Earth Prime wouldn't come back with them? But if that's so, then how'd they bring back Tonje and the ominous insect?

Excellent eye for detail :) . They can't bring back any matter. But the matter they go over with can get... reorganized.

As a little visual project, I'm attempting the near-impossible: making a Supergirl costume redesign that doesn't suck.

After looking at lots of official styles and quite a few other people's approaches, I found some unusual cosplay variants that were the most interesting. If it works with mere mortals wearing it, it works for Kara, I suspect

I'm still playing with possible white patches inspired by the white crop-top and shorts version. Curiously, I don't generally like her with a bare midriff, but the aforementioned cosplays won me over to at least try it. It seems there are almost no versions already out there that combine the bare midriff with pants. Still lots of iterating to do, but I'm closing in on something.

The bare midriff is a statement that she's invulnerable. The costume covers most of her, and could be some kind of armor, but to bare her core... that says confidence. 

Anyway, that's what went through my head.

Usually, the bare midriff gives me a little mental dissonance because she's often portrayed as trying to gain a certain amount of adult respectability (from the various gods and demigods she hangs around with) and yet her clothing choices undermine that at every turn. But seeing some adult cosplayers rocking it was inspiring, and I feel like the tapering point I've cooked up gives it a little more sophistication.

And yes, abs of steel on display

I like that one with the red pants far more than I expected to.  It does seem to be a great happy accident.

That's just a shapes test. I'm having some trouble getting smooth shoes to blend in and I'll need to work on the final colors and textures for a couple of hours. And don't worry, the model was extremely well compensated for helping out with this photoshoot. After a few hours of changing outfits and posing for renders, she thought she'd be pretty exhausted. Instead, she left feeling quite super

That's pretty good, although the red "gloves" are a bit unnecessary in my eyes.

Does an invulnerable girl who can float and fly even NEED shoes?  

Shoes seem overly "human" for a Kryptonian.

I have tried some renders without them, and the long red boots tend to get a little overwhelming vs entirely blue arms. Being able to take them off also gives her a sort of more casual or 'getting ready' look which should add options to any stories I might try with the costume.

I tend to agree (Supergirl does not stub her toes on anything

), but this will be for general consumption. I'm probably just going to modify some ballet flats to get rid of the ribbons. I had some shoes that almost worked, but I couldn't clean up the baked-in details of shoelaces, which became quite noticeable in close-ups. Again, taking elements off will be available as a storytelling tool

I love all of it.  Especially heeled boots.  Thank you for posting. If I had any wish I wish she was a little more busty.

Dammit. I barely get the cape on her and she just flies off! And if I heard her right, her boyfriend's not gonna walk right for a week. ...If ever. Lucky bastard.



I've gotta spare outfit, so I guess we'll pick up again with another model. I'm starting to think these new "Krypton Platinum" spotlights might be just a bit too powerful. She was practically glowing there.

Ok, thanks for coming out on short notice, Cory. You're looking great, so just go ahead and take a moment to get used to the lights. I'm sure you'll fill out my new costume design nicely once you've had a moment to get into character.

So a little more texture work (metallic chest logo, better boots/glove texturing).

"That's it. Looking Kryptonian, feeling Kryptonian!"



"...Hey Cory, You've got this! I'm gonna turn the spots all the way up now."

"Uh, Cory? You're uh, floating a bit out of frame there."



"Guys, I think we'll be losing this model too. Prep another costume."

A big round of applause for our guest models, Becca and Cory! They'll be going home with some lovely parting gifts...

 

Oh shit. Take it outside, girls!
