Raven 2013 by tsbranch Raven 2013 by tsbranch

A re-visit of my…second try at a redesign. There’s not much difference, but some pattern work. I know what you are thinking, and that’s about her cloak or cape, but in my version, her powers makes the cloak or the cape. It envelopes her when she needs it, to pull to around her to protect her or lash out for attacks. Its smoky-ish like how steam comes off the body in extreme cold weather. Her gauntlets have the “Eyes of Trigon” which allows her to do ‘darker’ things, kind of a Pan’s Labyrinth thing.

The best feature, imo, is the lip ring. Its an expression of her, not what was given to her or inheirited, but her choice. But thats me.

Is it just me or does raven have a Pacific Islander look in her face? Because if it's deliberate, it gives her an even more exotic feel than portraying her as a Caucasian female.

I think thats a pretty good assessement. To me, she was never Caucasian, because they (DC colorists) never consistently colored her that was, it was more reds, tans, and browns. With computer coloring now, it would seem that they made her very pale and gothy, which is too bad.

Out of curiosity, you wouldn't happen to know any pale, Raven-skinned girls ,would you? That would be awesome!

I love it. This is one of my all time favorite characters, and you've given her an awesome and genuinely interesting redesign. I would love to see this in place of the New 52 Raven.

Blurg. That look is TERRIBLE in the New 52. Makes no sense, she looks like an evil Dove, like Dove's evil sister or something!

THAT is way better than the New 52 version, by far lol.
