That's... interesting, Blastfury. I actually didn't set out to make Howling a beautiful or attractive character. Really my goal with her visually was to make a super badass mercenary lady. I guess she can be considered beautiful though, in a "please don't kill me" kind of way. :p
Well, I guess what I meant was that I didn't purposely make her to be visually beautiful, like a super-attractive Lightning type. I was going more for a plain-Jane kind of look (excusing the red eyes of course :p). But it's cool that people like her design!
Here's what she was supposed to look like when I was using VX-style portraits. :p
