This is Brinnslow’s Auntie Hima. I may have talked about Brinnslow in the past, all you need to know is that Brinnslow was separated from her family when she was young, and has body horror-themed powers. Hima has similar powers that she uses for destruction and revenge. I wanted to give Hima a plain red coat similar to Brinnslow’s, but I realized she’d contrast Brinnslow better with more classy and stylish clothing. With spikes, of course. I would give her aviators but I don’t like drawing sunglasses. It was cool drawing someone who is older. I think I made Hima to be in her 40s?
