If you remember well, the whole Victory Girl project started from a shoot-them-up game prototype made for a school interview, combined with two drawings that came from a dream of the purple-clad superheroine.
One of the first was one emphasizing her freezing breath [link]
, so I thought I had to do one featuring the other superpower you can use in the game : the heat vision.
Both pictures will be unlockables bonus in the game, which will have a bonus "gallery mode".
Well for my watchers here on DA, this gallery will be a kinda lame bonus since I post all pictures here progressively, but I plan to distribute the game on other sites as well
Just like the first one, I put Victory Girl in a little scenario : this time she has to face stone men who just decided to awake right under the city, causing earthquakes and stuff. Typical superheroine work Heat vision for dummies (as would some books say) :
Since she touched the strange purple rock that filled her with the unknown radiation which is the source of her powers, Jessica's (=Victory Girl for newcomers) eyes mutated.
Her retina is now covered by thousands of new cells capable of generating immense quantity of microwaves, alongside with a certain hue of red as a side effect, making the beam visibles to the human eye. This red light also colors her whole eye as she fires.
Power and size of the beams can vary a lot, this can go from tiny invisible beams to gently warm a person to gigantic beams covering her whole field of vision that can vaporize anything in sight.
But as size and power grow, energy required increases exponentially.
Firing small, concentrated beams barely require Jessica any effort (as seen in the game), but a big, powerful beam can cause her to faint instantly, leaving her without powers for a few days until the radiation inside her regenerates.
Also note that her mutated eyes filter the particular hue of red of the beams while she uses heat vision, preventing her from blinding herself when shooting a "BIG LAZORZ".------
I could have "wikipedia'ed" the definition, but I rather customized the explanation for Victory Girl.
Anyway hope you like that picture, and please try out the game release candidate if you haven't already!Victory Girl project gallery : [link]
