Marvel released images not too
long ago of the 2099 Black Cat (from the upcoming Spider-man Edge of
Time videogame). When I first heard about it, I
thought "futuristic Felicia? KICK ASS!" But then I
looked up the pics and... yeah, not so much.
So in typical Silas fashion, I decided to take a stab at this design
myself. Now, it's been a while since I've read any 2099 comics so
I went purely on visual cues here. I went with more of a classic
homage with my Black Cat costume here than with the 2099 Spidey,
keeping the fur on her forearms, legs and collar pretty much the same.
I thought that the 2099 era Black Cat would kind of emulate
Spider-man's costume so I gave her the same kind of "tech" patterns
down the sides of her costume. Originally I had them colored teal
to match her eyes but I didn't like the look in the end since I thought
it was a little bland. I tried some other color combinations out
and stumbled on a shade of pink by happy accident. I liked the
contrast and thought it matched the neon lights found in the future
universe. I also thought it emulated the magenta on 2099
Spider-man even more, but without blatantly ripping it off. ^_^
I went a little crazier than usual with the digital effects, giving her
a more subtle reflection on her body suit. I also added some
armor textures since I thought the suit textures they gave Spidey in
the game were pretty sweet. I even went so far as to animate a
rough "power-up" for the Black Cat like they do in the game, and you'll
find that here:
