ChampionFail by ViktorMatiesen ChampionFail by ViktorMatiesen
Okay, so this is our main protagonist herorine Champion Girl in one my forever developing comic Champions Pizza. And I have to admit, this is the worst design I have ever done. Not that its bad or anything, but its a blatant ripoff from THIS pic. [link]

Yeah, of all the superhero characters I have done, no matter I do to make Champion Girl to have a suitable and decent looks and design, there is ALWAYS a mini Luthor in my head that just screams like this
:iconwrongplz: WROOOOONG!!

I swear that this is the reason why I call my self the Swedish Version of Rob Liefeld, not in the bad art work department but more in the fail to come up with a decent design without looking at other people's work and rip them off department.

I think it looks great, man! I see how you could be concerned with using references for the costume, but I'm with Bug-- if you just tweak it a bit more it'll become your own thing!

I saw it.
The design on the uniform may be a little similar, but you've got a different color scheme.

Yeah sure the patterns and colering are different but thats it, this is what most people consider to be a rip off, or Greg Landing or Rob Liefelding. I just dont understand why its so hard to get a good look for the main hero while I can get a good solid design for other characters (though Gigantress needs a make over with her color schemes)... Any suggestions?

It's not as bad as you think. Superhero jumpsuits are quite common. I don't think anyone would notice the similarity.
But you could still do something different, if you'd like. Maybe you could have the top of the jumpsuit opened and tied around her waist. Then the shirt she has underneath could have a different design.

Just saying that now that I showed the pic, people will notice and its better to be honest than just straight out lie about it

Well hey, no problem. You can tweak her. It's just the uniform design that's similar. Mess with the design a little bit and it won't be original.
