A Casual Phoenix by e-carpenter A Casual Phoenix by e-carpenter
I don't care what anyone says.  I like jackets on superheroes.  They're practical.  Here's Rachel Summers during a little fashionable downtime.  Pairs with "The Casual Queen." fav.me/d6zaaju

PS > Copics > Graphite

...leather is a brass bastard to color.  I think it turned out okay.

As you can see, I like jackets as well.  They get a bad rap.

I love this design of Rachel Summers!  Reminds me of an updated John Romita Jr. design!

I took elements from her original hound costume (which is my favorite).

Love Rachel and this casual look is absolutely beautiful. I don't know if they're intentional or not but I like all the nods (the red jacket, phoenix emblem/top, and collar) to her history in her attire. :D

Thanks and it was absolutely intentional.  Rachel's original hound costume is still my favorite, I don't think she's had anything else that's been as iconic or interesting to look at since.

I think Magneto was the only cape I've used for a redesign or original character.

Capes are mainly a DC thing for me I think.  Superman?  He needs a cape.  Same for Batman.  Spawn is his cape as far as the costume is concerned really.  But I've always been more of a Marvel guy so I never really draw them and have to worry about it.
