But as you can see from my entry below, and the others, people have done some other interpretations of the term "starbelly".
Now to give credit where credit is due: my design owes a ton of inspiration to artist Frank Cho, creator of the Liberty Meadows comic books. His drawings, and specifically his covers, of his main character Brandy are awe-inspiring. The pose in my initial sketch for my Starbelly design bore quite a resemblance to his cover for Liberty Meadows: Eden Book 1. Ok, maybe it isn't a big mystery why, because that is the only copy of his stuff that I have, but it really wasn't an intentional imitation. Once I went to clean up my drawing, I noticed the similarity of pose and intentionally imitated his color and shading style- hey there's no shame in imitating the best is there?
