Miss Destructoid

Should there be a Miss Destructoid?

I donít know. I was just larking about. I thought it would be cool to draw a Miss Destructoid then post it on the cblogs to see what people thought.

My first idea was Mr Destructoid with a bow on his head. Just like Ms. Pacman. Then I gave her earrings. Then I realised that I was defining Miss Destructoidís identity by the accessories she wore. I didnít want to do that, it seemed pretty lame.



I started over. This time I changed only the arrangement of Mr Destructoidís features. Adding and removing nothing. I ended up with something like Mr Destructoid trying to pass himself off as a member of Daft Punk.



Then I thought this is bad too. It is not an interesting design. Itís just Mr Destructoid with a round head.

Is it better to have Miss Destructoid look like Mr Destructoid? Does that promote equality? It probably only highlights that biggest flaw in a concept like Miss Destructoid. Which is, why create a female character only to be an analogue to an existing male character?


In this case the answer to that question is, just for fun. So I guess it doesnít really matter. Here is my Miss Destructoid.
