Original Tecna enchantix interpreted by Sysla-illustrator
I for one had never been satisfied with Tecna's enchantix outfit. I'm sure that there are other who feel the same because look at it, it's so ugh. I personally find it a very plain as if the concept designers were running out of time and they just decided that this looked Tecna-like enough. I don't even understand what designers were trying to accomplish with that chestplate and skirt thing.
Below is an interpretation of one of Tecna's original enchantix designs done by Sysla-illustrator from Deviantart. This design was taken from the original concept art released by Rainbow S.p.a.
Can you see the differences?
Tecna enchantix by ~Sysla-illustrator on deviantART
In Sysla-illustrator's interpretation, Tecna has a skintight dress with a ruffle at the helm, a must it seems for every enchantix outfit, and long hair that reaches up to her knees like everyone else. The gloves are still the same and so is the hair accessory but the you must admit that the long hair is nice. The dress is so much more nicer than that weird two-piece outfit she has in the show.
However, I think the dress would have lost the 'tech' theme that was all about Tecna. The angular lines in her official outfit really emphasises her practical personality whereas the dress would have just made her girly and undermined her importance when Bloom and Sky came to rescue her from the Omega dimension.
What do you think? Which one is better? The official one or the concept one?
