Spider-Woman by kevinwada Spider-Woman by kevinwada
I have to admit, I don't know much about Spider-Woman so when I was asked to redesign her I had to draw on my own inspiration a bit more than usual.  I researched a lot of really colorful and deadly looking spiders and that's exactly what I wanted to convey with her re-costuming.  The original color story is respected here and playing with red and yellow can be a challenge as the ratios and hues need to be just right other wise she'll look like a walking McDonald's ad.  The idea was to make her look deadly, poisonous, wild.  I find her actual costume plays to her boobies a bit too much, and I resisted giving her a half mask or no mask at all, as I feel like that's a very easy go to for female characters.  It plays into the whole idea that female superheroes have to be sexy/sexualized first and foremost.  Why don't we focus on making them look badass, hmmm?

Luv it, but I'm not sure if I like it more as is, or rotated 180 degrees. Very beautiful!

I think you did pretty well with this redesign especially making her look more fierce and a little less sexualized. I love your other redesigns as well especially the X-Men #1 Variant. Good job!! And continue making more!!
