#1 Barbie Q

| November 2, 2011 | 6 Comments

Hi Everyone. I have been thinking about doing a tongue-in-cheek story about super heroes lately and thought that this challenge would help me to stay on task with it. This is one of my new character’s Barbie Q.

Once aspiring to be a super model rather than a super hero, Barbara Quinn never knew she would redefine what it meant to be “hot”. Subjecting herself to an untested and unapproved tanning lotion in order to seal a gig in a commercial, Barbara took a fortunate risk. The chemicals that covered her skin soaked in quickly, however, and immediately changed her DNA when catalyzed by sunlight. She burst into flames while not being consumed by them. As heat rises, so does Barbie Q as the flames lift her toward the sky. She now fights on the side of good, especially if there is a chance to be seen on TV from her good side. And as she likes to tell everyone, every side is her good side. So whether her powers are being used for good, or good publicity, Barbie Q is sure to heat up any scene she appears in.

I am a full-time freelance cartoonist/illustrator who would love to really mean it when I say "I work for myself". In other words, I like what I do for a living, but I would love to have more time to create my own ideas and illustrate them. I'm excited to hang out here and get involved in this cool challenge.

    Hey Everyone. I am sorry I posted this character twice. The first time I did it, I got a message saying there was internal server error and I didn’t think it was posted so I tried again. I found out after the second one posted that the first one actually did post as well. Sorry for the double!

    This is awesome!! …….She’s pretty! If she goes on fire, won’t she burn her clothes? Wouldn’t she melt whatever she touches?
