The Bayonetta That Could Have Been...

Sure, she's got long black hair and librarian glasses. But it wasn't always that way.

A Japanese TV special provided a behind-the-scenes look at the character design, revealing that character artist Mari Shimazaki did over a hundred drawings of Bayonetta before the current design was finalised.

Those early prototype drawings included a blond hair Bayonetta and a red-head Bayonetta.

    i still can't believe the concept designer thinks some women have those proportions. that is one ugly bitch. who finds those proportions sexy?

    Say what you like about the game, she has a hot butt.

    They really need to fix her chest/back girth and miniscule head.

    I think I prefer the one with red hair and a dress. Interestingly all of them had tiny heads :)

    All the blond concepts remind me of Trinity from DMC.

    "dragoon: i still can’t believe the concept designer thinks some women have those proportions. that is one ugly bitch. who finds those proportions sexy?"

    I do, particularly 3.2

    Ok I can see where the small head comes from now... The drawings above look exactly like how fashion designer sketches their new creation. The small head, really long limbs and exaggerated body poses are all trademarks of the fashion industry. It's just weird that they dont fix the proportion before making it 3D.

    Wow... every single one of these looks exactly like the finished product: ugly, ill proportioned and with incredibly shitty costuming.

    Luckily the game plays so... wait.

    She looks like a man D:
