I'm Not Shy. Honest. by Harseik I'm Not Shy. Honest. by Harseik
Aquadeeeerp derpa derp derp derp derp deeeeerrrrrrrp.

Guys. Guys I think I'm getting better at this whole anatomy business. It really pays to practice everyday. Though the reason why the hand doesn't look good is because I haven't gone through a hand-drawing marathon yet, like I did with feet yesterday. I'm pretty sure feet are my friends now. They ain't so bad once you realize what kind of shape they take.

I drew her a while back ([link]), albeit with horrendous proportions, lol. But just in case you don't want to click on the image and see what the deal is, this is Avery Curry, aka Aqua, and she's a gender-bent version of Aquaman that I made up one day while listening to cool Audiomachine stuff.

She's trying to be cute for yoooouuuu. I really love Aquachick. >< She's been nothing but kind to me. She gives me a strange amount of muse for being a girl character based off of Arthur Curry. I've been thinking for a while that maybe I should just replace her with a legit character, like Mera, Tula, or Dolphin, to avoid nerd rage in my upcoming fancomic... but... Avery's really grown on me. Hopefully I'll get some people to appreciate her as long as she is written well. You can do it, lady fishstick!

Yey, better markings. I got the pattern idea from an octopus image somewhere on the Internet. If a character is gonna be Atlantean, they're gonna be amphibious-looking, good dern it. I still don't know if I want to put the pattern somewhere on her face though. Maybe it'll just be on the forehead, I dunno. Still playing with it.

PS: Don't be mad when I make fun of Aquaman, because I do respect the character. He's just fun to pick on. It's tradition now.

I still really love this idea. It's so awesome. Someone needs to do a comic or write a story about her. xD

Srsly. o_o

Also: you should listen to "The One that Got Away" by Jake Owens. I totally see Avery showing into town and stealing some poor sufferboy's heart. xD

That's what I'm hoping for! I have the screenplay for the first chapter done. Just waiting for feedback from my creative partner, then I'll be setting sail. 8] I can hardly wait either.

Please don't. Embrace the rage. This is a truly inspired take on the character and I for one would really love to see you continue to develop it further.

She looks fantastic. Honestly. I think this might be the greatest comic reimagining ever. DC could use a guy like you ;)

I'm so scared of comic gurus, like you have no idea. Not only am I not an expert on the DCU, but I'm practically playing with everyone else's toys. xD But I won't be able to help it. With the way I write stories, it's a departure from your average superhero storyline, so I'll do my best to meet rage with a critical eye rather than blindly obey it.

Alas, I think I'm too much of a fangirl for DC to consider taking me in, although it'd be cool if they gave me an Earth of some number to play with. I guess that's what I'm doing in a sense. There's no way that what I have in mind would be congruent with any timelines. And I can look on the bright side. DC writers have rules. I do not. MWUAHA.

Thank you for the inspiring words, Darkphyre. <3

You're certainly welcome.

And I'd read any earth that doesn't replace skirts with red crotch shields and capes that look like they're held on by magic. I think I may be too much of a fangirl myself :P

Good luck with your writings. I hope one day to be a reader ;)

Oh. Oh dude. I just thought of something.

Since you've drawn this gender-bent Aquachick, how about a gender-bent Mera? :O
Reply
:iconharseik:
Harseik Featured By Owner Oct 13, 2012  Hobbyist Digital Artist
HRRRMMMMMM, I just brushed myself up on Mera's origins. The big question is whether I should bend her to keep the possibility of a love interest, or not touch Mera and see how she and Avery interact with each other. I have ideas for both. Decisiooooonnnnns. o o

:icondarkknightjrk:
DarkKnightJRK Featured By Owner Oct 15, 2012  Student Traditional Artist
Well, there's also the possibility of keeping Mera the same gender and have her as the love interest anyway...:P

Seriously, though, I'm sure whatever you'd decide would be cool. Try both--it's not like you're beholden to some continuity on here, after all...

Nah, the whole League is pretty hetero. I'll pass on that. xP But whatever happens, I want Mera in there. ... Or Garth. Dangit, I have too many choices.

And inorite? I do what I waaannnt!

Eh, I see Diana as more pan/omnisexual, but yeah, at least the rest of the big five are pretty straight.

Obsessive research on the matter has revealed otherwise, but hey, sexuality isn't something I insert in my stuff anyway. What can I say? I'm simplistic and childish. :]

I may luff his new 52 comics (died a little inside when the comic book store owner told me I missed out on issues 3 through like 9), but he really is so easy to pick on... DC even does it in HIS OWN stories....

If you ask me, I feel like the writers are overcompensating for the guy, but what do I know? Haha. Yeeeaaah, I know he doesn't deserve to be the butt of all jokes, but it's addicting.

He leaves himself so wide open for it. Several of the DC characters do in fact... Even the loverly Supes... He is just too prefect.

I like her, personally, especially the markings. As long as she's well-written, should be a fantastic replacement for Arthur.
