    The Last Round of Rebels for 2015

    The final illustrations of 2015 for my Great Rebellion series are here! We start off with my favorite, Netossa! The first four illustrations are available on t-shirts, hoodies, leggings, pencil skirts, scarves, kids'/baby's clothes, stickers, prints, posters, postcards, greeting cards, pillows, totes, drawstring bags, studio pouches, mugs, duvets, iPad/iPhone/Samsung Galaxy/laptop cases and skins, spiral notebooks, and hardcover journals at my RedBubble Store.

    Sea Hawk: "The Rogue Rebel Pirate" by Kevenn T. Smith. Click on the above image to buy products with this illustration. Sea Hawk is largely based on his original Filmation design, but also has elements from later episodes, like the ring from his father, The Falcon, from the 2-part episode, "Treasure of the First Ones," and the half of the locket he gives to Adora in "The Locket." I also wanted to give him a touch of "Captain Jack Sparrow" around the eyse, to help differentiate him further from Bow, since they're both redheads who were voiced by the same actor in the She-Ra cartoon.

    "Rebel Hearts 1" by Kevenn T. Smith. Sisters? Besties? Lovers? Whichever you prefer, there's no denying that Netossa and Spinerella adored each other in the episode, "When Whispering Woods Last Bloomed." Now you can have them together in one piece.

    "Here, Kitty, Kitty!" for Wonder Woman Day #4

    I'm participating in the Wonder Woman Day IV Charity Auction this year.  The auction benefits these Domestic Violence Shelters and hot-lines:  Raphael House of Portland, Bradley-Angle House, and Portland Women's Crisis Line.  I am very proud to participate in this auction because these are very important causes to me.  Please bid, and bid high!

    I wanted to do a picture of Wonder Woman being happy and having fun - something that I don't think happens nearly enough in the comic books.  I also really wanted to draw She-Ra and Catra, as well as Wonder Woman's enemy, Cheetah.  Most pictures I've seen that have Wonder Woman and She-Ra together have them fighting each other.  I really don't care for that, because I believe that Wonder Woman and She-Ra would get along really well and enjoy a tremendous sense of camaraderie, and I wanted to show them being friendly and having fun together.  I also wanted to play on the fact that they both have well-known enemies with a cat theme.

    While I take a lot of my cues for Wonder Woman and Cheetah from the way that Terry Dodson depicted them when he drew the Wonder Woman comic book, I also take a couple of Lynda Carter elements that I sneak in here and there with Wonder Woman.  Cheetah also has a few George Perez elements in her design, especially when it comes to her facial markings, which Dodson mostly abandoned.

    She-Ra and Catra were really fun to draw.  I'm a big fan of Mattel's Masters of the Universe Classics action figure line.  It's a melding of various canons of their franchises into one cohesive line.  My approach to She-Ra and Catra was along that lines.  I wanted to depict them with the familiarity of the Filmation designs of the cartoon that everyone knows and loves these characters from, but also bring in some of the details that the action figures had, whose designs were very different from the cartoon designs.  The result give detailed and interesting looks that easily stand up well alongside Wonder Woman and Cheetah.

    The background is inspired by the Whispering Woods background paintings that were featured in the She-Ra: Princess of Power cartoon.  They are lush, flamboyant and magical looking.  As I was planning out the background, I thought it would be fun to have Lookie in it.  Lookie was always hiding in the background of the cartoons, and at the end of the episodes, he would reveal his hiding place and explain the episode's moral.  Once I decided that Lookie was going to be in it, I wanted to balance the picture, and tried to think of a character in Wonder Woman's lore that could serve as an analogue to Lookie.  The two franchises are pretty rife with analogues:  Ares/Hordak, Circe/Shadow Weaver, Giganta/Scorpia, Steve Trevor/Bow, Nemesis/Sea Hawk.  When it came down to it, I settled on the whimsical and fun Wonder Tot, who is Wonder Woman as a small child in the Silver Age comic book stories.  Wonder Tot often had "impossible adventures" right alongside Wonder Woman as an adult and Wonder Woman as a teenager (Wonder Girl), and I thought that the magical nature of the Whispering Woods, and the fact that She-Ra's planet of Etheria was likely in another dimension, would provide a narrative that would allow Wonder Tot.
