Otherworld Centauri by Kostmeyer Otherworld Centauri by Kostmeyer
Better late than never!

The :icondeviantuniverse: summer challenges are always a bit of a problem for me - they're the big multi-character storylines that I love, but they come at the busiest time of year for me when I don't get much drawing time! But I'm determined to get my entries this year finished - and here's the first one!

This year's challenge is a storyline invented by :iconbranded-curse: - the DU has been invaded by forces from an alternate reality called Otherworld! Here's Centauri's evil twin - shortly to appear in the comics...

A whip! Well of course she has a space whip!

Ha! She didn't even use it in the story! It just looked right in this picture! Maybe she'll be back in a later story and we can see the space-whip debut! It kind of suits the slightly sleazy Otherworld evil twin vibe that BC started, don't you think?

You know, just once I'd love to see a dominatrix-themed heroine. BDSM clubs get such a bad rep...

Ahem, moving along... Nice design work here. Bonus points for adapting to the rest of the Deathwatch's aesthetic rather than just switching the colors around like certain (ahem) lazy artists I know of... :D

Just going with Centauri as the double's name? That might get confusing - Centenarian may be a good one to rile her up with as a taunt. (Hey, that makeup does make her look a bit older...) Or to keep in line with the cosmic theme, how about Carina?

Do I detect a bit of Rachel Summers influence here...?

Not particularly - although I did like that outfit! Somehow I doubt in Marvel's current overly politically correct state (Hey - we haven't got many girl heroes - let's make Thor a girl!) that we'll ever see it again!

A pity. True, the outfit is dated, but how's a suit supposed to be iconic if they keep updating it?

Thanks! We didn't really find out what happened to her at the end of the Summer challenge so it's entirely possible she's lurking around the DU somewhere waiting for a comeback!

So Centauri's counterpart enjoys dishing out punishment, huh?
Seriously, this is one badass design! How do you always manage to exceed my expectations, when I already expect nothing but first class stuff from you?

I wonder if she's a mirror opposite or just decided to live out tendencies that Centauri is repressing.

Ha - I'm not going there! But evil Centauri was pretty popular, and as far as we know she survived the events of the Summer crossover, so who knows? We may well see her again, one day (if someone can think of a good storyline of course!)

That was the brief for that month's :icondeviantuniverse: challenge - they had to fight their alternate reality evil twins! Glad you like - thanks for commenting :)

Dark Mirror'd evil twin in a hotter look.... 

Interesting.

Kostmeyer Featured By Owner Jul 22, 2016
I think Centauri would argue about which is hotter! That said I've been thinking about letting Centauri grow her hair out for a while now (although I'm not sure this is the 'real' version's style!) Thanks for the :+fav: - the evil twin is just about to make an appearance in the comics :)

This is great!  I didn't realize it was Centauri's evil twin until I read the title, and I think that is a good thing.  Means you didn't simply change a few colors and add a sneer to her face.  Long hair, makeup on the eyes, spikes, and a melee weapon.  Very different and very evil!  Devilish

We have a bit of a backstory which explains some of the differences, although a lot of it was to follow the aesthetic that :iconbranded-curse: established with his alternate reality heroes. Thanks for the :+fav: - much appreciated!

The evil opposite bad girl is always a dominatrix! Whatever happened to evil old fashioned serial poisoners? Blackmailers? Politicians? Real Estate agents!


;)  Looks fun to be bad, actually.

She might be an alternate reality serial poisoning, blackmailing, real estate selling dominatrix! (My god that's a terrifying thought!) In all seriousness (well as close as we get) it's a bit of a cliché I guess, but in this case it's that the 'real' Centauri is a bit of a straight-laced, uptight repressed type, so her alternate is very... well, alternate!

Little bit! Actually that's kind of following the established vibe for Deathwatch members really - but yes, this Centauri is very different from 'Centauri-prime!' Thanks for the :+fav: - much appreciated!

This is true.  Most of the Deathwatch members seem to carry a bit of that vibe.

Well then in that case, I think that it's safe to say that it will soon be time for her to "dominate" the competition.
