Hi, I've been seeing your post about Dead Century on my dash pretty often. I like your art, but I am not sure how to feel about the second image depicting perhaps a drag queen? I am curious, if this character is agender, or a drag queen, or a stereotypical representation of a transwoman? I have interest in how you will deal with the portrayal of this individual, which I think might have to be done carefully. That sort of image tends to spark transphobic ideas in the general population's mind, so from sleuthed
this is a good point. my intention was a campy sort of drag queen, hence the wig and hairy chest. in the original draft of that scene, there was a stage and a little performance and all, but musical numbers are not very effective in comic form. but yeah, the answer to your question is campy drag queen who probably does musical numbers in that bar. if i had a female-identified transwoman character in that scene, you can rest assured she would not have a hairy chest and sideburns.
but your point is well-taken. perhaps that could have been more clear in the scene. i wouldn’t be surprised if we get to see this character again so hopefully i can make that more obvious in the future.
Hello! New follower, heard about your upcoming game Dead Century through an artist blog I follow. Just wanted to say I am very interested in the ideas you have and I am planning to invest in the project on Kickstarter. Hope all goes well and you find yourself busy with all the fun of production and creative adventure. Take care! from seaniepop
