Re-Imagination Pt 4: Dazzler the Pinup Bombshell

Hello Friends!

This one took me a minute, as I explored a style I had never attempted before, an old "bombshell" style illustration. I knew I wanted to do something with the X-Man Dazzler and thought this might be a good fit. 

Dazzler is, to many people, a lesser known X-Man, but I think she's amazing. She was created to be a crossover with Marvel and Casablanca records during the disco craze. There was to be a movie and record, the whole sha-bang. That didn't pan out, but Marvel still moved forward with Dazzler comics. Her most notable power is turning vibrations into light energy, and she typically works with sound vibrations. As a pop star she could provide her own light effects, what a cost saving ability!

Here are a few notable Dazzler looks (she's had WAY more than this, but this isn't a total Dazzler history, use google for that):

 

Here she is in an inaugural appearance!

Here's a classic late 80s - early 90s look.

She got to be one of the stars of the X-Men arcade game!!

Now, here is a sample of the "bombshell" look that was my inspiration for this re-imagination:

This is probably racier than what I set out to accomplish, but it was the style I was looking at...

Here she is... maybe I will attempt this style again, I feel like I learned a few things that I could apply to a better version, but for this blog my point is made, haha. ENJOY! DAZZLER!!
