This is an edit of an existing image that I found while looking for comic covers to gender-bend a few years back. Given X-mas is coming up, I decided now was as good a time as any to actually get on that image I’ve been meaning to do.
To be 100% clear here, the image above IS NOT MINE. Follow the link above to visit the original artists’ DA page.
Now, generally I really like this drawing. It’s creative, it’s well drawn, the composition is interesting. My only issue with the image, and the reason I decided to genderbend it, is the unfortunately typical treatment of the female character. As usual, the guy is out front bravely saving the day and the woman is cowering in the background looking scared out of her mind, ready to swoon. SO, I decided to swap those roles around and gave Mrs. Claus the candy-cane and put Santa in the background instead. Same general poses, just swapped the genders.
One thing becomes clear. DO NOT cross Mrs. Claus…
More artwork is coming kiddies. Stay tuned 🙂
