CDC #416 – Team Building – Volume 2 – Part 4

The premise of this contest is that over the next number of weeks we will build a team of superheroes and a team of villains. Each week I will supply you with a role, name, or list of powers of one of the team members and you will use HM3 to create the character. The winner each week will win a version of their character created on HM by yours truly.

Your challenge this week is to design the villain teams’ second in command.

When Seth met Natalie Luxford he fell hard for her. Employed at a seedy strip club, Natalie managed to keep most of her clothes on, and still made more money than any of the other girls. She modelled herself after people like Bettie Page https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bettie_Page and Dita Von Teese https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dita_Von_Teese , her performances harking back to the classic ladies of burlesque. After sharing a bottle of Jack with Seth one night after her show, she spilled the beans to him on how she made so much money; from a young age Nat had the ability to control the minds of others, altering their perception of reality. This explained why Seth had woken up so many mornings to discover that the previous evening’s take was gone. He was smitten…and intrigued. He could see how having Nat around could be very useful in recruiting his team as well as in committing crime. When he asked Nat to join him, the promise of a partnership that could make her rich was just too good to pass up. She adopted the moniker Pin Up and became not only Seth’s partner, but in many ways his protector.

    The gloves and the stockings were the hardest things to do, especially the stockings; the separate parts all had to be coloured in black so you couldn’t see the joins

    Here’s a rough version that I might not have time to finish this weekend. I might try for pattern/textures and a background, but the basic looks is there

    Is it okay to repurpose one of one’s own old characters? 😀
