Scribbling again...

This is the chief of the organization in Phantomland. He's an important character but I don't draw him too often because he gives me a lot of trouble. Lately I can't even decide which gender works better for him :D I don't usually have a problem with character tropes but the male version tends to feel too generic to me, so maybe a sex change would make him a bit fresher... hnnnng

In any case I definitely want a badass older woman somewhere. They're too rare.

I also think that the lady design is stronger. But she does not look old - not older than 30, I think. you could push that a little bit more^^but the character herself does look cool, she has a strong and self-confident look

Yes, a thousand times! *_* More badass older people of all varieties, and more strong ladies in general. There is nothing about this picture I don't love. :heart:

They're both really fantastic, IMO. The noses are especially lovely, haha c:

maybe they should both be there, like them being twins, having the same job and all. She can even be his older sister on whom he developed a complex on. I don't know, I am just saying stuff so they both will be in the story. I really like both of their designs... I want them both to be in it.

Yeah, I like them both too... but I might as well make a guy like him appear somewhere else.

That is a great idea. Their design is too good to leave them.

I say s/he can switch around genders every day (originally a male, but dresses female sometimes) to spice things up xDDD

Actually, they're both hot and badass, whichever one you chose is epic awesome <3

I think I like the woman better, she looks like she has more "character" in her. The nose looks awesome on both genders. <3

Okei, totta. Mies- ja naisversio on vaan molemmat niin kuumia että mielellään näkisi kummankin sarjiksessa XD

Miksei olisi vain tasavertaisesti kaksi pomoa? :------D Eka ku näin ne, ajattelin että ne on pariskunta, jotka on ajan myötä alkanu muistuttaa toisiaan.

Judging by this sketch I like lady chief better. The male version make me think: "Oooh, not another bishie-type boss".

I wonder whether the lady make people recall Integra from Hellsing, hmm... Except that Integra was much younger.

Anyway, try female chief version. That could be very-very interesting! =)

:iconmaaria:
maaria Featured By Owner Feb 23, 2010
My thoughts exactly :> Although their personalities are still pretty much the same regardless of gender, so...

Not quite like Integra I think, my chief is more friendly.

Yhdyn kyllä siihen mitä Muura sanoi. Kuulostaa sata kertaa mielenkiintosemmalta että toi nainen olis sellanen ihan tavallisen oloinen keski-ikänen naikkonen joka on ton organisaation johdossa, sen sijaan että se ois joku kauheen selkee evil mastermind tai joku dominatrix muija joka ruoskii alaisensa kuoliaaksi jos ne munaa jotain. Pystyn kuvitteleen miten ois ihanaa jos Chie munais jotain ja sitten sille sanottais että mees siitä nyt pomon puhutteluun ja raukka ois ihan hermona, mutta pomo vain oliski ihan normaali ihminen. Keskustelis sen kans ongelmasta ja tarjois teetä ja keksiä XDD Ois kyllä ihanaa.

Especially since the lady isn't even the "sexy badass" type which I'm also bored to death of, she's just a normal middle-aged lady who happens to be a chief of an awesome criminal organization. Yuhu~
