After Campbell left Gen 13, I grew rather tired of the more realistic depictions of Fairchild that were done. I guess I was predisposed to Fairchild being this tall. slightly muscular girl who seemed to have plenty of extra muscle and energy that didn't really bulk her up.
That extra bulk to Fairchild that some artists added later on didn't make her look as appealing...it looked almost like most guys would be apprehensive of approaching her, given that she almost looked like she could snap your neck.
I think you did a great job finding a pretty good balance: she's got the muscles, but she still exudes that hot look kind of hidden behind an almost shy smile on her face. Kind of like the little girl who hasn't quite let puberty (or Gen-Factor activation 'bonuses') sink into her head.
Btw, I also yearn for the good ol' days. The one thing that attracted me to Gen13 was it was based in San Diego. I loved recognizing street names and places I'd see on vacation there.
