TRDL 2017 Series No. 12 - Katana [DC Bombshells]

I love Ant Lucia's DC Bombshells series, and how much traction these designs have gotten in the merchandising and now comics themselves. Old timey variants in a pinup style? What's not to love! I really like the Katana design. It trades on some of the great Kill Bill imagery (sword out, non-combat attire, female attacker) but with different tones to the dress, the degree of skin bared, and the imagery as a whole, tying back to Katana's in-canon details. I hated to have to crop this one, but I unwittingly drew an almost perfectly square aspect ratio image. Hence, we lost the discarded scabbard and the cute left foot. You can see the full original image on the TRDL Process Blog. This piece is available as a print here: www.thirdraildesignlab.com/hom…

I don't want to be rude because this excellent work and very creative, but I just wanted to let you know that Katana is wearing a traditional Chinese dress called a qi pao, in case you didn't already know.  I know that Katana is Japanese, and there's nothing wrong with a Japanese person wearing a Chinese dress, but I just wanted to make sure you knew that.  Hope that helps!

Agreed on all points. This isn't my design though. This is based on the DC Bombshells series of pinup redesigns done by Ant Lucia. 
Thanks for looking and dropping a note!
