Machete Devilstrife is a character from my old comic Eromugen. She was Siat’s original owner’s bodyguard, but got fired when he caught her fooling around with Siat behind his back. Where the comic left off, we saw her living on the streets, but the plan was for her to join Wars and Siat’s party as their muscle/brawler. Around the time the comic dropped off, I was working on tweaking her design a bit, but this is the first time those intended changes are being implemented.
As for this Ask, I figured it’d be a good chance to talk about the Studio’s culture a little bit. Mostly I wanted to try drawing Machete again in 2021 (or 2022 by the time this Ask goes public). Even though she says she wouldn’t be hired for any other jobs, I did consider showing her having some fun with someone like the mentions at the end, but nothing I thought of made as much sense to me as her just talking to the camera. At least this approach lets us get a good look at her modern appearance.
