IRONWOOD: Indigo Redesign

Hi again! I’m writing from the past once more, and I’m scheduling this post for the 25th (at which time I will be about to attend another family reunion–just like last summer!).

This, in and of itself, could be considered a redesign. When I first drew Ironwood‘s Indigo (see here), I definitely got the attitude I was looking for… sassy and confident, and curiously dangerous. But I just couldn’t get her outfit down, hence the need for another quick sketch of her. (Seriously, I finished this in like two days.)

A few of the differences are obvious. Since Vincent left Ironwood, she’s cut her hair, and her sunglasses have become a more prominent part of her look. Her skirt has been replaced with the grunge-y ripped jeans of the ’80s and ’90s, and she’s swapped her Mary Janes for more practical combat/hiking boots. Finally, though it’s been shrunk to a more presentable size, her trademark hat remains… as does her revolver, which is of a luxurious golden color as opposed to Vincent’s sterling silver. The two characters’ weapons of choice being so similar is no accident; far from it. These pistols are, in fact, legendary; however, the characters don’t know the extent of that myth just yet.

Thanks for reading! Take your time enjoying the rest of my posts, for I won’t be back until the first of August. (I’ve updated my DeviantArt a great deal as well!)

IRONWOOD: Vincent Cannon

At last, Harold McClinton (last seen in Keep Running) makes his long-awaited return… but as a totally new character! Meet Vincent Cannon, Private Eye–a 19-year-old detective enlisted in some of the most dangerous work in the state of Nevada.

It’s 1989, and after a past life riddled with grave mistakes and even worse consequences, Vincent has moved to the city of Ironwood. Here, among the rows of cranes and buildings currently under construction, he finds a ruthless criminal underworld, a mysterious vigilante movement, and even a previous partner-in-crime detective work. When his line of work takes a turn for the worse, though, he’ll also have to find hope in the darkness and a reason for fight for what is right.

I understand that all of that was a little dense (read it again if you have to!), so, if you want to get a feel for what Ironwood will be like, I would recommend listening to Brandon Flowers’ “Digging Up the Heart” from his latest album The Desired Effect. As for my other projects (The Forging, Moon Man, and The Steampunks), related songs would include “Warriors” (Imagine Dragons), “The Moon-Atomic” (Angels and Airwaves), and “Radioactive” (Imagine Dragons, but preferably the Pentatonix and Lindsey Stirling version) respectively.

That’ll be it for now–and for this week, probably… I’m heading to Utah for another family reunion. Hopefully I’ll get some sketches done there, though! Until then…
