Skullgirls fan design: Melody by J-j-a-y Skullgirls fan design: Melody by J-j-a-y
This is a small update of a little design I did for fun a little while ago now. I love the Skullgirls game (always have) and thought it'd be fun to make my own, I quite enjoyed doing these doodles. Melody being the main fighter is accompanied by her band (Broken Bunny) in a bid to get recognized and propel the band to stardom, not being a great fighter herself she brings the band along for some much needed support along with her strange companion, a living portable CD player named Diskette.

Diskette lends Melody her strange electrical power which is seen in some of her attacks, so obsessed with becoming a star Melody does not realize that Diskette is a leech ebbing away at her soul to gain control of Melody to put her mystical powers to better use but she cannot do it one her own she isn't strong enough yet so she subliminally tells Melody to go after the Skull Heart telling her it'll be the bands ticket to the big time.

These characters have been influenced by a lot of different people some real and some fictional, Melody herself draws inspiration from a number of sources including; Dexter Holland (The Offspring), Wayne Static (Static X), Captain Commando (Marvel Vs Capcom), Jacky Bryant (Virtua Fighter 2), Black Polnareff (JoJo's Bizarre Adventure) and a little bit of Cyclops (X-men/Marvel Vs Capcom).

Ah it is fun to create things once in a while ;p

Melody, Diskette, Karry, Selma & Synthia designs by me.
Skullgirls is a product of the wonderful Reverge Labs

Thank you. I have been meaning to do more on this character, but I'm working on some other silly Skullgirls drawings at the moment, hopefully when I'm done I'll go back to this.

Thanks! I initially did this as just general pose practice and gradually made the character out of it. It served as great practice and I got to dust off my neglected imagination.
