MG: new naga sketches by mooncalfe MG: new naga sketches by mooncalfe
working on redesigns of Naga for new Mountain Girl. no more naked Naga! ;)

really rough and simple right now. i think i want there to be some accessories/accoutrements on her outfit, like beads or tooth/bone jewelry or stuff dangling around or maybe designs painted onto the hide/skin. not sure yet, still have to work on it more.

the shark skin poncho isn't an outfit in itself, she'll only wear it when it's stormy weather or whatever.

yknow that makes alot of sense its true the comic/art world is very cut throat and to be able to bend to the restrictions and still make a comic that breaks the binds of repetition and superhero cliche's(and still make a sale and not offending someone) is a challenge. I love your stories because they are different and new ,your characters are truly beautiful in a non traditional comic book way and I think thats very appealing to ppl looking for something different and i'm looking forward to your new shadoweyes project. I think thats what this comic generation needs is something new and refreshing, and I truly appreciate the stronger female characters, I'm come from the okanagan tribe and one of the traits is "wide shoulders"(not very feminine) and being aboriginal its very hard to lose weight so sometimes comic books tend to do a number on my self esteem (-_-)when I saw naga and those other characters I felt like I sort of saw myself and a coupla my buddies and it was cool(no more rescue the princess, wonder woman in a catsuit bullshit)don't think I could pull a monster inside out though...or could I?^-^
P.S...naga should get a big ass eye brow ring ....just a suggestion ^3^

yeah, that's the sort of thing i mean, while obviously nobody has Naga's proportions (hehheh), she has potential to connect with girls like yourself, or other girls who feel the pressure to be skinny and all that stuff. and i think if i put out a book where Naga was naked, while that could still connect with people, it would be limited in its possible distribution and maybe never reach somebody like you or your friends because of it. a while ago i don't think i'd care about that, i would've been like "whatever! screw everybody, i'm drawing Naga topless!" but i've sort of shifted priorities in the past couple years and i'm interested in different stuff.

same deal with Shadoweyes. i want to move away from the kind of oversexualized stuff i was doing for the past several years and do some stuff that can get into the hands of younger readers or readers who might be turned off from picking up or embarrassed about carrying around a book about a naked warrior girl. :XD:

i can hear everyone now: "you sell-out!" ha.
