Kate’s costume was designed by David Aja, but yes, he was inspired by Emma Peel.

fantastica-sff said: The recent WicDiv review you reblogged mentioned the possibility that Badb might be partially inspired by Helena from Orphan Black. Have you or Jamie been watching this show?

kierongillen:

Jamie’s a big fan. I’ve never watched it.

(It’s on the list though)

I didn’t start watching until after I’d designed the Morrigans, though.

The three aspects of the Morrigan - Badb, Macha and Anann (Gentle Annie) as brilliantly depicted in Kieron Gillen and Jamie McKelvie’s The Wicked + The Divine. Three issues in and this is easily one of the best comic books I’ve read in a long time

I continue to have very little idea what is going on in this fun, beautifully-illustrated series, but that hasn’t really stopped me from enjoying the hell out of it.

Practice piece for a full illustration I’m planning. Completely in love with Kieron Gillen and Jamie McKelvie’s interpretation of The Morrigan in The Wicked + The Divine - everyone should be reading this book. Everyone.

Always loved the Morrigan so I was excited to see her turn up in WicDiv. I love the designs for all three girls but especially Badb.

Drawn in marker, colored in Photoshop… was supposed to be a quick drawing but all the feather and scale detail took forever.

"All the feather and scale took forever"

I know about that, yeah.

Badb on the other hand looks wild and unrestrained. Her hair is a gigantic tangle of red fiery locks, wild, unrestrained, and big. Her eye makeup looks like a mask of a different sort, with sharp lines that emphasize an angry expression (scowling eyebrows and cheeks drawn back in a snarl). Her face also has additional piercings: a pair of snake bite lip piercings give her fangs and a nostril piercing emphasizes her nose and gives her a bullish, wild aspect. Her fingernails are sharp black claws. Babd’s clothing, while still gown-like is heavily influenced by armour. Her dress is highnecked, her bodice looks like a cuirass, and her left arm is sleeved in apparent scale-mail with a pauldron of feathers. Collectively Badb looks dangerous and powerful and angry. She is a wild warrior woman to the constrained royal of Morrigan.
— Atoll Comics starts taking apart the designs of the Morrigan, using it as an example of how these things are core tools in comics. Go read the rest. (via kierongillen)
