MAY PROMPT: MOD!!
lets go back to the 60’s (or maybe the 80’s revival) for mad mad may! that means suits, long sleeve shirts, miniskirts, wild sunglasses, scooters and bold patterns!

Mode du Mois’ April prompt: Superhero(ine)s.
Drawing this I had no idea of what I was doing but it’s been really fun, and I’ve learnt one or two things about thick black outlines. Yay!
Also, I’ve been following eschergirls for a while now and their tumblr is pure gold and an inspiration, so they have influenced this a little bit. I’m glad to be able to depict a heroine with a short skirt and a trendy coat and to have her retain both her femininity and power, without sexualizing her.
Modedumois has a superhero theme.. and then I made an AU. yeah..
Scott / Mama Myst is a veteran player in the local superhero-scene, controlling dark mass and unknown black magic. She’s a feminist/body positivity icon and feels a lot of pressure, and rather keeps to herself outside of work in fear of screwing up and disappointing everyone.
HIlla / Sunjump is Scott’s sister, and not so good with her powers, which are complete opposite of her sister’s, with the power of light mass and bright light. She is untrained and seriously clumsy, but has a lot of potential. Gets into trouble a lot, and is usually the reason why Scott can’t save the day.
Jakub / Sonny Roo has no powers, although his family passes them generation through generation. He is really flexible and a good fighter though, and uses a bunch of evasive moves, which is why his superhero name is sort of a mockery of his battle tactics. He’s gotten into headlines because of his light drug-usage and isn’t very popular because of it. (Except among more liberal youth, who feel that he represents them by being a natural born loser who still fights through all odds)
Sebastian / Scholar and Viktor / Black Bird met during a Superhero support meeting, because they were both seriously overwhelmed by their powers and were both going through depression. They started dating and gained enough confidence to get into the superhero circles much more intensively. Sebastian can use spells from old ancient books, even if their effects might sometimes be something they are not. Viktor has extraordinarily strong claws, and he can control their growth. He has wings as well, but can only use them for gliding. Sebastian doesn’t like Viktor’s sexy superhero-clothing, but he thinks it’s his duty to provide fanservice.
Prisma / Gemstone is a secret superhero, and even her friend Scott doesn’t know that she moonlights as a superhero who can read minds.
Priscilla / Bloodscythe doesn’t have powers either, but instead is the only supervillain around who actually kills people, and sports a mean fake arm. She is determined to somehow steal someone’s superpower or make herself somehow have one, and make all bow to her, including Scott.
messy and rough but… I kinda like that.
