This character has been in my head thirteen years, and only NOW do I have a design for her that I don't loathe with the fire of a thousand suns. And oh FUCK does she look amazing now that she has a real freaking design!
Okay, this is one of my earliest Beast Wars OC's Skyshadow. Her beast mode, name, and parts of her robot mode are taken from the Sky Shadow toy that I fell head over heels in love with the moment I saw it. I've worked very hard rehashing her character to omit the horrific Mary-Sue qualities she initially had when I first made her, and now she's a femme I can really be proud of. Bitter and bratty, but with so much love to give once she finally lets herself open up.
*EDITS* Working on making this better. Inked and coloured in Photoshop, rather than just throwing some airbrushing on the sketch. Hoping to get this shaded soon too, and then really go all-out on her dragonfly wings. Might change the optics, haven't decided if I like them now or not.
*EDITS2*Aaaaand done! Didn't turn out too bad! Still not sure if I like the optics though, but everything else I tried looked weird. Oh well, still lookin' pretty damn nice. ^w^
