Starfire Redesign by SebastianvonBuchwald Starfire Redesign by SebastianvonBuchwald
Without getting too much into it, I think that the Starfire controversy last year was partly due to a failure in the writer and artist to properly convey the nature of the character and not so much in the skimpiness of it all. Koriand'r shouldn't be covered up like a nun, she's an alien princess and she should be more Dejah Thoris than Lilandra, which is what I tried to capture in my redesign.

I tried to elevate the "princess" aspect of the character, making her a bit more regal looking and I braided her hair because I thought it looked ridiculous otherwise. Hopefully, this version of the character can convey a sense of strength, presence and confidence in spite of the skin that's showing which, in my eyes, keeps the Tamaranean true to the character that George Perez and Marv Wolfman created.

PS: Is the background too tacky?

A far better redesign then "slutfire" in the New shitty 2......

I like to think so. Would do it very differently if I had to redesign her again though.

Still not a fan of her "superhero bra/panties combo", but this design is so much better than the horrible redesign DC decided to use...

Yeah, I'm 100% percent on some of the choices I made here myself. If I were to do it again it'd be a whole different story, I'm sure. Glad you like it though. :)

I've been a huge admirer of Starfire since I followed the Teen Titans in the 80s. Although I am not usually a fan of changing the appearance of a character, I have to admit that this is a great redesign! Nicely done!
