Spark - Character Design by Shadow-Wolf Spark - Character Design by Shadow-Wolf
Character design that was once a fan character, but she's taken on a life of her own. Kinsey is an "abnormal" human, her body acts as a power generator keyed into her emotions. When she gets upset, she zorches everything around her. More to come someday.

I'll be sure to stay away from her when she's PMSing. I'd love to see her in a Marvel comic. @_@

DANG! You NEED to somehow show this to the marvel kids, because this chick is just too interesting to be a mere fancharacter!

I commented on one of your newer works before I saw this one. One of the technical drawings for her armor.

I understand now why you created that special spinal piece on her armor. (At the time I just thought it was some awesome aesthically pleasing armor work xD;) You know, just for visuals. But the fact that it actually has a function, that she has power cells there along her spine just make me like the design even more!

I really like what I see of this character, I've always thought of having a character with electric ';powers' in some sort of way. I really like how you incorporated her into the Marvel Universe. To be honest, I don't think that is an easy thing to do if you do it well. If that makes sense. I mean you and Jadewolf seem to have really put some thought into how they would really FIT into it. Not just slap them in there.

I think it is a really cool idea to involve her with Tony Stark, and the Avengers. Leaves lots of room for character development but gives her fully developed characters to interact with.

Can't wait to see more of her, I really do love her design. :3

:heart: This comment makes me happy! Thank you very much, I really appreciate how much you looked into this piece and the other one of her armor. I'm also glad you dig on her beign a fan character, it's apparently a faux pas in the art world to have one. XD

Herringbones Featured By Owner Aug 14, 2008
Well you know how the art world is. People either love or hate it, at least it seems like that. And some people flip their minds a lot too about what they like. At least that gives us lots of different views and art techniques though!

But yeah I think fan characters are looked down on quite a bit, I guess because the majority of them aren't well thought out and just use it as an excuse.

I don't see you or Jadewolf doing that though, you are working to make your characters fit in seamlessly, and doing a bang up job of it I think! Besides you guys are obviously having fun with it! x3

*nods* Yeah, it is like that. And once you've gotten a fan base for a certain kind of artwork, it's hard to break away from that with as much success. But it's okie I'll do it anyway XD

why are some PACs designated as functional and others as semi-functional in design? i see functionality in them all, since they actually do something.

i mean... the answer's a little obvious since a crest on the chest is cool to draw and gives her some personality and aesthetic appeal, but maybe there's something else.

The PACs in her spine are the implants she currently has. The single PAC in her chest that is desgnated a semi-functional design she does not have. That was actually her earlier design, but I decided it was way too similar to Iron man himself. I kept the sketch because I liked it though. =3

So glad to see her!

I like what you came up with for the PACs. (It just looks badass along her spine like that for one ;)). And I already gave you my two cents in that email, and whether you read that or not, this seems like a great way to address the stuff I was blathering on about. :3

I'm sort of sad that you guys are having all this fun without me. ;P
I don't have a Marvel character or anything that could be worked in as such, alas.
So I really look forward to you guys getting further into this so I can enjoy vicariously!

She does seem like a great Marvel-Based character. :'D Especially when she goes in her out-of-control state. XD

Fan character or not. I think she's awesome. :0

PS, in regards to the other comments ~

I still keep in mind that fan-charas are still original charas.. I just hate it when people make their fan-chara like way too caught up in the existing story, and make them fall in love with the main chara or have them as long lost siblings or something.

ROFL basically I hate the typical Mary Sue type charas. XD But she seems to have a whole nice special BG behind her. Which I'm glad for. :heart:

Why thank you! Unfortunately, Spark as a Marvel character is caught up in the existing story to a degree, but there are no long lost siblings to be had. ><;

And aren't fan-characters awesome? Original characters are amazing and all, but sometimes, it's fun to play around in someone else's universe. ^^
