TRDL 2019 Series No. 12 - Beetle [Female]

The Beetle is one of those classic Marvel villains I’ve always loved. I used to use him and a few other Sinister Six types to introduce new players to supers RPG gaming because his look is so bold and utilizes such clear design elements, like the weird finger nozzles and the eye lensing. That said, it surprises me that I’ve only drawn his 80’s canon look once for the TRDL project… as part of the Iron Man Battle Royale print. I did a Beetle redesign, which I LOVE, and you can find on this site. Anyway, here is the most recent incarnation of the character: a female version. I love genderbent characters, and Marvel pulled a good one off here because the costume was modified to accentuate a more curvy, modern look without abandoning some of the elements that make it look like the original Beetle.
