RPB: ThunderSoul by Dualmask RPB: ThunderSoul by Dualmask
Number 97. The name was just randomly chosen and isn't official or anything...the last thing the world needs is another black super hero with electric-based powers, but my instincts led me to draw this anyway as my collection nears the end.

That's pretty awesome. I love the shading and lighting effects- makes sense with electricity and all, but it's done well.

The very essence of my RPBs is practice, and I wanted to see if I still knew how to show some high energy effects. Glad you like it!

I LIKE that name for her.

And sure, there's other black heroes with electric-based powers, but are they as good looking?

Are they so dramatic and powerful looking?

Could one of them possibly be a daughter of Oya, goddess of Thunder, Queen of the River Niger, Mother of Nine and Unbeatable Warrior?

I like what you're thinking. :D

However I just thought about this: there is this fairly well liked indie comic character I've seen around FB that's said to be Zeus' daughter (and she's black). I don't want to be that guy that looks like he's stealing someone else's idea. If I go forward, I need to really differentiate her. Maybe she can be a rogue for Jet Dancer or something.

There is? Lord, I'm out of the loop. :(

Lampshade it, and give props to the Indie Comic.

Come to think of it, I probably already look like an idea thief... :doh:

Throw them homages out there, and run with her.

ThunderSoul, daughter of Oya.
And since Oya, St. Brigit and the Celtic goddess Brigid are all one thread, her real name is Brigit Kildare. :)

Or even, her name could be Orisha. :) She already looks to be wearing her "mother's" symbolic color of purple.

Yeah, I think I will. I'll also mention she's an homage to Storm since the orisha Oya is related not just to lightning but strong winds and violent storms.

Now I wish I'd known about this before I drew her. Well, onward and forwards... :)

I LOVE doing research like this after the fact.  :)

It is true that part of the reason I'm doing this project is to develop potential new characters... Hmm, maybe I should explore this one more. Thanks man!
