The key concern I had when designing Aquiesse was not so much what she looked like - I didn't intend to stray too far from 'recognisable female humanoid with fish tail' - but giving her a nifty, unique, eye-catching costume (no seashell bras, we can do better than that, surely). A sleeveless wetsuit with gloves, and a sort of 'skirt' at the bottom - to protect her mermaidian modesty, I'm guessing - were the order of the day, and things came together quickly within the span of this page; although there was clearly a lot of futzing around with what exactly her insignia would look like, and whether it would be typographic or symbolic. Not that either option lost out: the seashell vs. ammonite idea quickly shifted to a belt buckle instead, and one of the 'A's became the badge on her wetsuit. The next question was, though, what kind of colour scheme was she going to end up with? Hmmm....
