I'm on a bit of a redesign fix, while I'm patching up some old characters for something. And. I dunno.
I've always thought the idea of Venus could be cool, just. Never how it was executed.
I went into this redesign kind of blind. I did what research I could on the character and her story, and I figured. Hey. Let's cut out all that 'secret lost sister' stuff. The first episode of the new series was all I had to work with but I figured there's a whole world UNDER the city. If she coincidentally exists, however it is she got there, it'll feel a bit less forced. So now she just exists, all on her own. Maybe even to a point of loneliness, or bitterness? Insert plot line of 'I never had a family' and maybe even some nice jealousy arch to sour that trope a bit.
Then I took the mirror and trapped dragon lord plots and tweaked them a bit. No more fans for weapons, something I felt was a feminine weapon cop-out, just straight up magic mirror with two dragons living in it. The dragons come out. BOOM. It's magic. She's a magician. That's it.
I really like how this came out. It was a relatively quick doodle but good for the amount of time I put into it. Again, Venus - I actually like the idea of her, just not as it was. Hopefully you guys enjoy it too! ^ u ^
