Storm's New Threads by DeepChrome Storm's New Threads by DeepChrome
Yeah okay so Storm's my favorite Marvel character.

I also like to design new outfits and costumes for her. Since I started out on X-Men while she was wearing the silver outfit, I've often felt a bit odd about her more current getups. Especially with all the black and bare skin showing. Now, while I know the woman can take extrmes of temperature without having a problem about it, but in some cases, too much skin is really too much skin for me.

Besides, I also liked her punk setup with the Mohawk, so I wanted to give her a trench coat, and maybe combine the two older setups into something she could be wearing currently. So I had her hair in a ponytail (which always looks good on her if you ask me) and went back to the metallic silver look.

Done in Photoshop CS2 with Wacom Intuos3 6x8 tablet. Did most of the linework and coloring last night, and about an hour or so of further cleaning up and tweaking today.

i liked the way you pulled this off. one of my pet peeves is the "red-sonja-steel-bikini-syndrome", in which some overly busty heroine goes into battle dressed in practically nothing, and never suffers any major hits, even if someone is shooting at her or using bladed weapons. doesn't make sense.

Thank you. I grew up on her 80s "silver" costume, so I based it off that, but updated it somewhat. :D

I generally can't stand the "practically nothing" rule of female battle dress either. :| Fortunately the X-Men artists think similarly, as Storm usually at least has a pair of pants on nowadays, even if she's in some little halter top for that scene. Emma Frost can turn herself into diamond, so she's about the only exception to the rule, and even there she wears some decent clothing, however sexy it is.

I like it more than her regular threads.. thats for dang sure, though I'd worry about her getting them struck by lightning and stuff because they're so long and flowy.

Awesome work as usual Amy.

Thanks. :)

She's usually had a pretty flowy cape through the older incarnations, and some of her more recent ones, so I don't think that's a hazard. Besides, the woman can control which way the lightning goes with a thought. I doubt she has to worry about being struck by it. ;P

Thanks. :D I noticed she's liked by a lot of people...wonder how many are women, or men who just like strong, independent women?

Oh critique: There seems to be something wrong with the leg on the left (her right). The perspective is somewhat off...

Hmm. Probably the foot or something. I probably should've looked at those a little more closely. Thank you. :)

Thank you. :) I had fun designing the outfit, and trying to make it work for her. :D

There were always comics where she wasn't in her "uniform" so to speak, so every once in a while she would be in a trench coat. The last one I remember had her in a black leather outfit, short hair, and a long trench coat tearing up a bar full of ruffians with an F4-tornado style gale. :D And I always liked the slightly punk look for her.
