I'm Everything I Would Like To Be

(Edited to add a more colorful, kickass rendering below.)

I've made my very own superhero:


I'm getting ready to punt the little dog for putting paw prints on my fancy boots.

I don't have a name for her yet. Maybe something like "Princess WRAAAAUGH!" or "Princess I KILL YOU."

This is the colored version. I started with a black & white line drawing.

ETA: Here's another one for Eric, since he thought the sword was "way too blasť." I also figured out that most of the elements have two color selections (a base color and a highlight ... the first try only has one selection colored in on each element).

Hee, I like your names. And she has a cutlass! At least, I refuse to believe that is anything but a cutlass.

Heh, I didn't realize it, but they're both TEEM-centric names!

Might I suggest Princess of Death, Princess Doom or the like?

Aww, you weren't even thinking of me when you came up with the names? Sniff.

And Eric thinks the cutlass is BLASE!?


How does THAT feel, infidel!? Yeah! Take that!

Well, you were CLEARLY controlling me on a subconscious level, Teem. Which makes you even more powerful than I first thought.

*cowers before you*

Well, she used the word Princess, so maybe I was...oh, screw it, never mind. I'm clearly waaay out off Heewig's subconscious radar. *sniff*

But still, I suggest her name be "Princess Doghumpsherleg"

I could have sworn that was the newly appointed Miss Disabled USA, accompanied by her seeing eye dog Steve. The -- uhh cutlas is just a prop for her latest publicity stunt in support of Blind Chef Al's Tiki Lounge and Pirate Grill.

I could be wrong though.

And the other one is the newly-crowned Ms. Dominatrix 2005.

But don't you mean Miss Wheelchair? Because that first superhero is only standing up for 15 minutes a day. The rest of the time, she rides the Scooter of Impending Annihilation.

Steve rides shotgun.

The printer in my office is named Steve. How did that come to be the dog's name? That's crazy!

I like my names for your superheroine. However, I guess they are too "normal" for everyone else to like.
