TRDL 2016 Series, No. 30 - Gotham Girl [Batman]

Gotham Girl (and Gotham himself) struck me initially as much by what i didn't like as what I did. It was jarring: conventional superhero style figures dropping in and claiming Gotham as their territory, yet with the somber Batman-influenced colors. I read a bit about them in the wiki and began to get sorted on the concept. The two elements I struggled with in the design the most I ended up obviating: I had her pulling the awkward cowl off so you can see her face and hair, and I dropped the double row of buttons along the torso, which, along with the pleated skirt, was just giving me too much of a marching band vibe. I added more piping at the seams and called it a day.
